Quick Fruit “Mousse”

We love this easy recipe and so will your family!

4 servings

Ingredients (just 3!)

4 Tbsp of unflavored gelatin

1 – 16 oz package of frozen fruit such as strawberries, mango, or peaches

1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar or honey (do not use honey if your child is under 1 year of age)

In small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin onto 1/2 cup room temperature water to hydrate, then stir in well. After the gelatin has fully hydrated (3 to 5 minutes), add an additional 1 cup of water and heat on low until mixture is clear, but do not allow to boil.  Stir in sugar or honey and cool for 10 minutes. (If using raw honey, you may want to wait until the gelatin/water cools to add.)

Place frozen fruit in a blender.  Pour cooled gelatin/water/sugar mixture into blender and IMMEDIATELY blend on high speed until fruit is completely pureed.  You will notice that the mixture gets thick as the gelatin gets cooled by the frozen fruit.

Pour into a serving bowl or into individual serving dishes.  This “mousse” can be eaten immediately or put into refrigerator to keep for 3 to 5 days.  Top with fresh fruit and yogurt or whip cream if desired.
