Fresh Cantaloupe Mousse

Looking for new ways to eat fresh summer fruits such as cantaloupe… is a nice refreshing dessert (or you could use it as a first course).

  • 2 tbsp. of unflavoured gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/2 medium cantaloupe, seeded, pared and pureed
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 4 egg whites at room temperature
  • 2 cups berry sugar


To soften the gelatin, sprinkle over the cold water.  Stir this over a double boiler with bottom pan full of hot water to dissolve.

Cool and add to the cantaloupe (already pureed).  Beat the cream until soft peaks form and add 1 cup of sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Beat egg whites until fluffy and add the remaining sugar gradually.  Fold this into the cream mixture and put into 8 of your prettiest dessert dishes.

Chill for at least 1 hour before presenting to the table.

Add some diced cantaloupe on top .  Yummy!
