Strawberry Mousse Recipe

Preparation time: 10 minutes

 Makes: 6 servings


  • 1 cup strawberry 
  • 4 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 egg whites


  1.  Wash and drain the strawberries. 
  2. Put the fruits, sugar and egg whites into a bowl. 
  3. Use the mixer to beat the egg whites together with the sugar and fruits. You will notice that in the beginning the composition will liquefy, but if you continue beating it will become stiff as the usual beaten egg whites foam.
