I and hubby love any kind of mousse. Today’s recipe is inspired from Tarla Dalal’s recipe. This strawberry white chocolate mousse has perfect balance flavor of strawberries and chocolate. Nothing is overpowering.

White chocolate and strawberry flavors go very well together. In every spoon you eat, you will get nice crunch from those little strawberry seeds. I have added only ½ tablespoons of sugar while whipping the cream. You can adjust the sugar according to your strawberries’ sweetness. Do not forget that chocolate has enough sweetness also.

Notes:

  • Heavy whipping cream – You can use ‘Malai’ which you get from top of milk. And if using store bought heavy whipping cream like I did here, make sure that cream has more than 35% fat content. So it gets whipped nicely.
  • Many readers are from India. I know that the cream you get in India does not have 35% fat content. But don’t worry, You can use amul whipping cream. It works perfectly fine. I got good reviews from Indian readers.
  • To make whipping job easy, make sure that bowl, whisk attachment and heavy cream are really chilled. So I recommend to keep all three in freezer for 15-20 minutes. If you follow this tip, you will get nice and soft peaks even though it has less fat content.
  • If you don’t like to bite the seeds of strawberries in the mousse. You can strain the strawberry puree and the use in the recipe.
