Now, onto the recipe!

Strawberries + whipped cream + agar-agar powder/vegetarian gelatin is a fantastic combination to any mousse. There are some tips to be taken into consideration – Eggless Strawberry Mousse

  • Unlike gelatin, agar-agar needs to be bloomed for few minutes. 
  • No fresh strawberries, no worries – use frozen strawberries or merely use berries of your choice.
  • Store bought whipped cream can be used. If you like to make it at home, then follow this link
  • The color of mousse depends on the color of strawberries. Mine was not too red, so the mousse turned out to be lighter in color.
  • This is a mousse, and it will melt if exposed to hot temperatures. So if you are planning to make it for Mother’s day or 4th of July then make provisions to keep it cold, or it will turn into a milkshake-like consistency. 

Depending on the weather, it may take somewhere between 3-6 hours to set the mousse.

Once set, decorating is super easy and fun! Top  with a swirl of whipped cream, sliced strawberries, and shavings of chocolate. Or enjoy as is, it tastes super yum without a topping too.

    I am looking forward to trying this recipe! Question though, at the beginning of your blog it says the agar agar needs to be boiled. I don’t see this step in the recipe? I have never used this ingredient, so I was going to substitute gelatin, but not sure of the ratio I would use.

    • Ruchi says:

      Sorry for the confusion. For this recipe agar- agar needs to be bloomed and later added to the white chocolate mix.
      For gelatin – please use the same ratio.

  2. TRUPTI SHAH says:

    can one skip the white chocolate and use dark chocolate? and can I also mix cream with greek yogurt?

    • Ruchi says:

      Sure you can use dark chocolate. Color will differ. Mousse will become chocolaty in color.
      Haven’t tried with yogurt so can’t comment on the end result.
