White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse – Even He Can Do It!

Happy Valentine’s Day! :) Now over to Mr. T with a really last-minute Valentine’s Day dessert.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I am sure that at least some of you are like me in that you wait until the last minute to get certain things done. Like thinking about what to make your wife for Valentine’s Day. So, if you are still searching for a nice and quick Valentine’s Day surprise, look no further!

We Germans have this very true saying ‘Liebe geht durch den Magen’, which basically means that you win someone’s heart by making delicious food for them. This creamy mousse will help you with that! ;)

It’s relatively quick and easy to make. The texture is kind of difficult to describe. Actually, we weren’t sure if we should call this mousse or no-bake cheesecake filling. If you eat it immediately, it’s more like no-bake cheesecake filling. And if you chill it a while, it’s more mousse-like, but not quite like normal mousse. It’s not as airy (or at least, not as airy as I remember mousse to be). And the Greek yogurt gives it a nice tang.

Unfortunately, I’ll have to come up with something else to surprise Erin with. Suggestions are more than welcome! ;)

White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse - Even He Can Do It!

  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Ready in:
  • Yield: 2 large servings

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (60ml) whipping or heavy cream
  • 4 ounces (225 grams) cream cheese
  • 2 ounces (112 grams) white chocolate, melted
  • 4 ounces (225 grams) plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup (50 grams) raspberries (frozen or fresh), mashed with a fork
  • a few fresh raspberries for garnish, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Be careful to not over mix or it'll turn into butter!
  2. In a separate medium bowl, using the same beaters, mix together the cream cheese and melted white chocolate. Add the Greek yogurt and mix until well combined and then add the mashed raspberries and stir.
  3. Fold in all but a tablespoon of cream (you'll use that tablespoon to use on top of the mousse). Try to keep the mousse as light as possible. Spoon the mousse into two serving glasses and serve, or chill until serving, up to eight hours.
  4. Top with the leftover cream and garnish with raspberries, if desired.

    This looks great. I love the flavour combinations. It's perfect. And I live by "Liebe geht durch den Magen" One of my favourite sayings ever… ;-)

    Ooh, this sounds lovely! If it's sort of like cheesecake filling, I'd probably serve mine with some crumbled graham crackers on top, + maybe a bit of shaved chocolate. Mmmmmmm!

    Looks so beautiful AND easy to make? I'm also super stoked everytime I see a Mousse recipe that doesn't call for gelatin! I've missed out on trying so many mousses (mousse?) because of the fear of gelatin
