  • Thanks for sharing again !


  • I tried the recipe but added a few fresh berries for that texture. Nice taste and easy to make.


  • Where are the real black currants ?
    Try a mousse of blackberries and egg whites, simple and more pure.


  • I think the flavor would be really different for a mousse, and adding a few berries to serve it would look more appealing. Thanks for the recipe!


  • Not really my type of dessert but thanks for the recipe


  • Hmmmm, I like the idea of it but I’m not sold on the image – sorry.


  • This is beautiful xx thank you


  • This recipe makes me think about a traditional Dutch recipe my mum used to make with egg whites and berry juice. Easy and actually quite nutritious when you use pure ingredients.


  • oh how delicious, a nice change to gold ol’ chocolate mousse


  • I’ve always wanted to try making a mousse. Fingers crossed it works :)


  • A very nice and refreshing treat!


  • Not one for me but thanks for sharing.


  • What an interesting flavoured mousse. Not a combination I would normally have even considered. We loved mousse growing up, but it’s not something we have had for many, many years. A great excuse to introduce it to our family meal planning.


  • I remember my mum used to make a mousse with egg whites, it was just egg whites, berry juice / pomegranate juice and a tablespoon of raw honey…..simple, pure and oh so fluffy !


  • Sounds a great dessert – but would add a few whole berries when in season. Thanks for sharing.
