Instructions

  • Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Make sure the wrap is long enough to come up over the sides to wrap the entire pan.

  • When ready to serve, remove the mousse, remove from the freezer, and let sit for a couple of minutes then remove from the pan by pulling up on the plastic wrap. Turn the mousse upside down onto a serving tray. Remove the plastic wrap and slice.
  • Garnish with extra strawberries and raspberries.

Notes

When you are using strawberries in a frozen dessert that needs to be sliced, cut the berries into small dice.  When strawberries are left in big pieces they freeze like an ice cube and are impossible to cut.  The smaller pieces of strawberries will soften quicker and will be easier to cut through.
If you buy a lot of strawberries either from the market or even the strawberry farms you want them to last as long as possible. Check out my guide on How To Keep Strawberries Fresh. Trust me, doing this will keep your berries fresh for over a week.
