As you can see by the photos we have serve this fluffy mousse in a glass and also in hand made chocolate cups. The flavor combination of chocolate and strawberries is always a crowd pleaser!
To make the chocolate cups, we melted sugar free chocolate chips and brushed the inside of a silicone muffin case. The cases went into the freezer for 10 minutes to firm, and the process repeated a few times for firm chocolate shells.
If you would like a cheesecake tasting mousse, add 8 oz of cream cheese.
When preparing the strawberries, place the chopped tops into a jug of water and store in the fridge for a refreshing flavoured water.
Try this with roasted strawberries for a deeper flavour. Roast the strawberries for 20 minutes at 180C/350F degrees, then allow to cool before processing in the blender.
