It’s hard to believe that spring is in full swing when we’re all stuck inside. Typically, I watch the grocery store shelves like a crazy person around this time, waiting for all the new veggies and fruits to show themselves. I’m sick of apples and pears and butternut squash, and I’m ready for berries, asparagus, peas, and cherries.
Right now it feels like we need to buy shelf stable or frozen food in order to make it. But I refuse to let the lockdown deny me the enjoyment of (socially distant) spring. So I bought a carton of strawberries and made this flour-free, yeast-free white chocolate mousse. It’s small batch, uses only 2 egg yolks (eat the whites for breakfast!), and tastes like a burst of fresh air…or a Bath and Bodyworks cream.
It’s important to stay safe and it’s important to stay sane. Fresh strawberries, a simple, ethereal dessert—these are the things that let me know that it’s going to be okay.
- If you can’t find white chocolate, use whatever chocolate you have on hand! I love the clean ivory look that white chocolate gives, plus you don’t need any additional sugar when you use it.
- Pour the mousse into small ramekins for individual servings, or into a large bowl that you can scoop from.
