Ingredients for strawberry mallow mousse

Serves 6 – 8

  • 400g strawberries
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 40g caster sugar
  • 250g white mini marshmallows
  • 400g Fromage Frais
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped pistachios, or toasted sliced almonds


  1. Reserve 6 small strawberries for decoration. Hull and roughly chop the rest and put them in a saucepan with the orange zest and juice, plus sugar. Stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 5–10 minutes until the strawberries are soft and pulpy.
  2. Mash the fruit mixture with a fork and stir in the marshmallows until melted. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.
  3. Fold the fromage frais into the strawberry mixture and spoon into serving glasses. Chill for at least 6 hours, until set.
  4. Hull and slice the reserved strawberries and arrange on top of the mousse glasses. Scatter over the pistachios to serve.
