Banana Mousse With Strawberry Jam and Summer Berries





Introduction: Banana Mousse With Strawberry Jam and Summer Berries

This instructable is for a banana mousse, which is very easy to make, cheap and very beautiful too!
I hope my instractable will be easy and clear to understand! If you decide to make it yourself - good luck and bon apetit!

Step 1: Ingredients

Serves four.
400ml double cream
5 table spoon of icing sugar
Half a tea spoon of vanilla essence
2 bananas
Strawberry jam

For the decoration you will need: cooking chocolate, piping bag with a very small round nozzle, berries, fresh mint herb will be great too (I didn't have mint and had to use ready-made icing petals). Use icing sugar to sprinkle your dessert right at the end as a last touch!

Step 2: Making a Banana Mouse

Pour the double cream in a mixing bowl, add 4 or 5 table spoons of icing sugar (you don't need it very sweet as jam is sweet as it is), add half a tea spoon of vanilla essence and banana chunks. Mix all these until the mixture becomes thick.
Take a strawberry jam and put a couple of spoonfuls on the bottom of the cup you are going to serve the mousse in. Cover the jam with the banana mousse, put cling film over it and put it away in the fridge and start making chocolate decorations.

Step 3: Chocolate Decorations

I draw leaves and some wriggly sticks on a plain paper and  put my drawings under the baking paper. I melted the cooking chocolate, poured it in the piping bag and started following the lines on the baking paper.  After making chocolate drawings, I put it in the freezer for couple of minutes to make it harder.

Step 4: Decorating the Banana Mouse

Cut the berries and decorate the banana mousse with them (arrange the berries the way you want). Take the chocolate decorations out from the freezer and stick them inside the banana mousse behind the berries. Sprinkle all with icing sugar!

    This looks really tasty, however did you name it "Mouse" instead of "Mousse" on purpose? I read thru it really fast so I might have missed something. I like the chocolate decorations. Keep up the good work! :)

    hahaha my mistake. I only just noticed it because you told me :D Sorry and thank you for telling me - I'll edit it now if I can :-)
    p.s. I'm glad you liked my intractable and thanks for the compliment! :-)

    Looks beautiful, I can imagine it would taste good too.I will try it out tonight and see if it really is so easy to make :)

    Talk about being environmentally damaged, I clicked on this expecting something to do with a computer mouse ... or even something like this:

    But admittedly your actual instructable is a lot more yummy looking than I thought it would be before clicking. I especially like how it does not rely on tons of chocolate - since i personally don't like too much chocolate (I find brownies to be a way of saying "i have no imagination, but everyone loves chocolate" try being the only kid not crazy about chocolate at a childrens birthday...) - sorry for digressing, late night and i got nothing better to do

    Hi mh76dk.
    You started on such a negative note that my heart almost stopped beating ( as if i've done sth bad) :D . Thanks for your strange compliment and hope you'll have a good night! :-)

    Apologies for the near-death experience. It was indeed meant as a compliment :-)

    Well. It is now noon and I am still awake. but mood-wise I do feel better, thanks.
