The perfect summer dessert, this raspberry mousse is a real people-pleaser – and is a fantastic choice for anyone following a gluten-free diet or who simply wants a healthy treat. The sharpness of the raspberries contrasts beautifully with the indulgent cream – so no need for any sweetener. If you prefer other fruits, try strawberries instead or blueberries with a little lemon zest to make the mousse.   

Once chilled in the fridge, these creamy pink desserts will cool you down on even the hottest summer’s day.

TOP TIP

If you don’t have stevia liquid, opt instead for a teaspoon or two of xylitol or erythritol blend as powdered stevia can leave more of an aftertaste than the liquid.
