This dessert was one of my favorite sweets when I was a child. My mom used to prepare it with the remaining strawberries and the egg whites that were left out of all other chocolate desserts. A handful of fresh strawberries + a couple of egg whites = LOVE! I love this mousse during hot summer days, well chilled and served with mint leaves.

Utensils: a hand mixer, mixing bowl, serving glasses

Serves 4, prep. time 20 minutes


  • 500 grams fresh strawberries
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Wash the strawberries and put them on a plate. Smash the strawberries with a fork and sprinkle the sugar over.

Beat the egg whites with the mixer and add the lemon juice. The beaten egg whites should hold if you turn the bowl upside-down. Keeping mixing and add gradually the strawberries. Once you get a nice and smooth mousse, you can stop. Cover and refrigerate.

Decorate with fresh strawberries and mint or basil leaves. Serve chilled. Enjoy!
