Strawberry Sunshine



If there is one thing that is always in my fridge, it would be strawberries. My mom for some reason or another seems to like buying strawberries alot. Not that I am complaining but I was about to when she went crazy and bought 9 250g packet of strawberries. I mean it is one thing to like something alot and it is another to finish perishable likings. I obviously was not eating them fast enough and no one in my family really eats them except my mom and my sister (occasionally) so I grabbed a few packets and made some strawberry mousse using this recipe.

I have never really made a mousse before to be honest and using heavy cream too! It turned turned out prettily so I am glad. This is definitely not the best strawberry mousse and honestly not my cup of mousse either but the bff and my mom seem to like it much. It was abit tooo milky-tasting for me and if left out too long in humid weather, it would turn mushyy-ugh. There was a problem with the recipe because it omitted the step where I have to add in the required lemon zest and lemon juice so I guess it turned out just a tad bit too sweet. I may tweak this recipe and figure out when to add in the lemon zing and maybe it would turn out just lovely.

In the meantime, catch some sunshine in a cup.

Your blog is just full of yum! This looks amazing and the fact that I'm hungry isn't helping. Also when it comes to sweet things or dessert, everything seems perfect to me :3
