Baby Strawberry Mousses: Great For Afternoon Tea:

Ingredients:

625g (1 lb 6oz) strawberries

3 limes, grated rind only

3 tablespoons runny honey

4 tablespoons water

3 teaspoons powdered gelatine

250 ml (8 fl oz) double cream

250 g (8 oz) low fat natural yogurt

Extra small strawberries to decorate plus tiny biscuits, optional

Method:

1.) Puree 225 g (8 oz) of the strawberries then press through a sieve and reserve for decoration. 

2.) Puree the remaining strawberries, sieve then mix the puree with the lime rind and honey.

3.) Add the water to a small heatproof bowl, sprinkle the gelatine over the water so that the water absorbs all the powder. 

4.) Leave to stand for 5 minutes heat the bowl in a small saucepan of simmering water until it is a clear liquid.

5.) Whip the cream until it forms soft swirls. 

6.) Fold in the yogurt, pureed strawberry and lime mix then the gelatine in a thin trickle. 

7.) Pour into 8, 120 ml (4 fl oz) small liqueur glasses or coffee cups. 

8.) Chill for 3-4 hours or until the mousses have set.

To Serve:

 Stir the reserved strawberry puree then pour a little over the top of each mousse. 

Decorate with tiny strawberries and serve with dainty biscuits, if liked.

There will be loads of Spring berries from Spain around for Valentine’s.
