Raspberry and Marscapone Mousse
If you are in the mood for something sweet, tangy and super easy to whip up (no pun intended ;) then you will love this recipe. It's a great finish to any meal and a great summer dessert.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
1 Cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup plus 1 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 8 ounce container marcaspone cheese
2 cups fresh raspberries - or frozen and thawed if fresh are not available
In a small bowl add raspberries and 1 tsb sugar, slightly mash berries with a fork to release juices - set aside.
To make mousse: In a large bowl add heavy cream, vanilla and remaining sugar. With a hand mixer on high, whip cream until thick and fluffy. Add in marscapone cheese and whip until well blended (about 15-20 seconds). Gently spoon berries into bowl with mousse mixture being careful to keep out as much juice as possible. Set remaining berry juice aside. Gently fold in berries. Spoon mixture into bowls and drizzle a little bit of remaining juice on each serving. Serve and enjoy! :)
