The scent of lavender wafting through the air may just bring back memories of the outdoors during summer time. White chocolate mixed with blueberries gives this dessert an alluring sense of sweet and strong flavors. Try substituting different berries and colors for different occasions.

Ingredients

  • 225 grams white chocolate (chopped)
  • 400 milliliters cream
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 5 sheets gelatin (may substitute 1 1/4 tbsps. gelatin powder)
  • extract (Lavender)
  • food coloring (Purple)
  • blueberries

Directions

  1. Soak the gelatin sheets.
  2. Place part of the cream in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the chocolate and drained gelatin. Stir until completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Very interesting choice of ingredients for a mousse. I love the idea of white chocolate, which you don't see as often. The lavender extract works really well with the white chocolate. The mousse is light and creamy. Topping with blueberries really helps it look and taste even better. It ends up becoming a nice and classy dessert that you can serve with gourmet dinners or just when you want a special treat.
