Yes, a little late for Passover Seder but aren't you tired of eating Macaroon's already? It's two days into Passover and I know you are searching the cupboard for something sweet and different. All that Matzoh has finally gotten to you, no?
I know this looks like ice cream. But IT'S NOT. It's Strawberry Mousse. And it has all the creamy mouthfeel that ice cream exudes. Best of all it's quick and easy to put together. What could be better than that?
Oy Vey, I am not Jewish, however, the Wild Boar is. So when there is a Jewish Holiday (however it seems as though lots of non-Jews, goyim, are celebrating Passover these days), I like to take on my "perfect goy wife" role and put something together, a traditional treat during the holiday period. I know, I know, I'm good.
The Wild Boar does not follow Jewish dietary laws (he eats everything) but like I said, it's fun to make traditional things. If there is a holiday, I'll join in and do what I need to do for a celebration. I love parties.
This mousse is considered perfect for Passover because it is non-dairy with no leavening, an important consideration for Jews following traditional dietary laws with a meal where meat is usually present.
But the truth is, I make this on a whim because it is so darn yummy and simple to throw together. It's light, fluffy and refreshing. You'll be saying Mazel Tov before you know it. I know you will.
Let's get to work, Passover is only a few more days! Let's go!
This is all you need. No, I'm not kidding, that's it. Sugar, an egg white (or powdered egg whites) and strawberries. I told you this was simple!
Let's prep the strawberries first.
You will need 2 cups of chopped fresh strawberries.
If you are using a real egg you will need to separate the yolk from the white. We will only be using the white. If you want to go scramble yourself an egg with the yolk, go ahead. I'll wait.
Pour the egg white into a large bowl or mix 4 teaspoons powdered egg whites (such as Deb El Just Whites) with 1/4 cup warm water.
Whisk the egg white for two minutes.
It will be nice and foamy.
Using your hand mixer gradually beat in a 1/2 cup of sugar, on medium speed.
And then the strawberries.
Increase the speed to high and beat for 15 minutes. No cheating...15 MINUTES...the mixture will fill the bowl.
This is what it will look like when done. Very light and fluffy. I could overdose on this.
Then find yourself a hooligan to lick the mousse off the mixer thingymabobbers.
Can you believe he wouldn't share with me? Whatever.
Now add the mousse to a bowl and freeze for 4 hours.
When you're ready to serve take the mousse out of the freezer and put into individual bowls.
Feel free to add any fresh fruit you like for garnish.
You are going to love this dessert, it's not just for Passover.
