This is probably one of the most delicious desserts I have ever tasted. I definitely want to make this again and again and lick every last drop from the mixing bowls and ramekins.

I prepared the Mousse with Basil Berry Salad as well as the Biltong and Avo Tacos with Chunky Salsa on the night. Both these Disney Cookabout Recipes were quick and easy – and very delicious!

Mousse Ingredients

  • 120g ripe strawberries, washed, hulled and halved
  • 120g low fat plain yogurt
  • 100g mascarpone cheese
  • Vanilla seeds of ¼ vanilla pod
  • 30ml honey

Basil Berry Ingredients

  • 100g mixed berries
  • 30ml passion fruit pulp
  • 4 basil leaves torn
  • Extra basil for serving


  • Puree the strawberries in a blender and keep aside.
  • Beat the yogurt, mascarpone, vanilla seeds and honey until it is thick and fluffy. Place in fridge for 15 minutes to set.
  • Make the Basil berry salad by cutting the berries into halves and quarters. Add the passion fruit pulp and the basil mix gently. Keep aside.
  • Spoon the mousse into 2 serving glasses or ramekins and layer with strawberry puree.
  • Spoon the basil berry salad on top of the mousse.
  • Pour the left-over strawberry puree into a small jug and serve on the side.
  • Garnish with extra basil just before serving.
