Banana Mousse

DSC_0006Recently, the circumstances were such that I could only eat purees and liquids. But I desperately wanted a dessert so I decided to make a mousse – banana mousse with a whipped cream. And you know what? It is so good!

For this mousse you need a very few ingredients and really little time.

You need to have:

  • 2 bananas

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

You can also add some lemon juice inside and some chocolate curls on top if you likeDSC_0004

You need to do:

Slice the bananas. Make a puree, add powdered sugar and vanilla extract (lemon juice is optional). Mix well.

Whip the cream in the another bowl until stiff peaks formDSC_0008

Combine banana puree and whipped cream. Stir and serve the mousse in cups. You can also cool the mousse in the fridge and serve it with chocolate curls.

Enjoy your tender dessert under any circumstances!DSC_0005
