Another Raspberry Mousse

Views: 96

A mousse is a flavored, molded dish usually made with heavy cream and fruit. You can also make a good mousse with evaporated milk and I have used this for both salmon and raspberry mousse. Evaporated milk, when whisked, make a light and airy froth that fills the bowl very quickly so make sure you use a large mixing bowl for this! This is a raspberry flavored but other fruit can be used too.


I large can evaporated milk

2 small cartons fresh raspberries

I raspberry jelly

2 tbs water

1 tbs sugar


To make:

1: In a small saucepan, add the raspberries with a little water and sugar, saving a few for decoration;

2: Heat slowly until simmering;

3: Simmer for about 3-5 mins until the raspberries are soft;

4: Mix the jelly contents with 1 cup boiling water;

5: Pour the raspberries from the pan into a fine sieve over a bowl;

6: Add the liquid from the strained raspberries to the jelly bowl – about 1/3 – ½ cup;

7: In a large bowl, whisk the can of evaporated milk until light and frothy;

8: Pour the raspberry jelly mix into the milk and stir gently until mixed;

9: Pour into a large mold or several small molds;

10: Refrigerate until cooled and set;

11: Tip the molded mousse onto a plate and decorate with fresh raspberries;

12: Shave a little chocolate over the top to decorate.
