While we are still in ice cream season let me share with you this delightful and kiddophilic treat.
I had returned from a short but very refreshing holiday in Mahabaleshwar with an armload of strawberries. We were eating strawberries in every form. This treat was a creation for the family kids who were supposed to visit us. Ok the kids did not turn up but we did become kids once again.
Not much of a recipe but you will love assembling it. Also its technically not an ice cream but cream which is chilled it is!
100 ml fresh cream
1 cup chopped strawberries
2-3 strawberries sliced
1/4 cup Icing sugar to taste
1 teaspoon lime juice
6 Oreo cookies
In a food processor whip up the fresh cream, lime juice and icing sugar together, adding the icing sugar slowly till all of it is used. Once it is swelled up add the chopped strawberries and whir it once. That's your mousse, the lime juice holds it up well.
In 6 petite cups arrange sliced strawberries against the walls. In the center fill the whipped cream and strawberries mousse.
Top with whole Oreo cookies. You can lay them flat on top or embedded them halfway into to the mousse.
Let the cups set in the fridge atleast 2 hours before serving.
These strawberry cups look like tulips and tasted creamy and nice, I was told!
Tell me what you think about them but only after you make them yourself, you are off to make them already? Ah I knew!
