This is a very simple dessert to make for the whole family. I use fresh raspberries, but you could experiment and use whatever fruit you'd like.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups / punnets fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 1 sachet raspberry jelly / or 1 pack raspberry jelly mixed with ½ pint hot water and dissolved
  • 150ml heavy whipping cream / double cream

Instructions

  1. Blend the raspberries, sugar, lemon juice and hot water together in a blender
  2. Push mixture through a sieve into a bowl and discard the seeds
  3. Stir in the melted jelly mixture and leave in the fridge to semi set for 2 – 3 hours
  4. Once the raspberry jelly is wobbly but not fully set (ps doesn’t mater too much if it is fully set) whisk it with an electric whisker for 2 minutes until it becomes foamy
  5. Slowly pour the cream in whilst whisking
  6. Keep whisking until it turns thick and mousse like -Approx another 2 minutes
  7. Pour into glasses or a large bowl and return to fridge to leave to set
  8. To set fully will take about 4 – 5 hours, so this is an easy dessert to make the day before
  9. Serve this dish with fresh raspberries on top
  10. For the grown ups perhaps a dash of raspberry liquor and shavings of dark chocolate

Notes

If you want to make a fancier mousse and have a layer of jelly on top, just make a little extra puree, add some melted jelly and pour on top of the mousse once it is set and leave for another few hours to set.
