No-Bake White Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake

Sunday morning I’ve decided to prepare something sweet and easy to make, without any backing  for my boyfriend’s return from a 3 week business trip in India. I didn’t have very much time and this no bake mousse cake recipe that I found was just perfect.

Though it may seem complicated with so many ingredients and directions, actually is quite easy to prepare and there is no way you can go wrong with it. No baking is required which makes it a perfect dessert for summer.

Definitely a recipe I will repeat this summer whenever I will have the chance. It is so so  good.

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 250 gr digestive biscuits/graham crackers
  • 80 gr coconut oil or butter, melted

White Chocolate Mousse

  • 200 gr white chocolate
  • 350 gr whipping cream (35% fat), cold, divided
  • 10 gr gelatin powder
  • 30 ml cold water

Strawberry Mousse

  • 300 gr  strawberries

Directions:

  1. Prepare the strawberry sauce so it has time to cool before preparing the strawberry mousse. Cut the strawberries in quarters. Place the strawberries and sugar in a small sauce pan and place over medium heat just until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and puree using a blender. Set aside while you prepare the gelatin.
  2. Dissolve gelatin in 30 ml  cold water and let it swell for about 5 to 10 minutes. Place over low heat just until the gelatin dissolves and then pour it over strawberry puree. Let the strawberry mixture cool at room temperature while you prepare the rest.
  3. Prepare the crust. Place the biscuits/graham crackers into the bowl of a food processor. Blend until crumbs form. Add melted coconut oil or butter and process until completely combined.
  4. Press the mixture into the bottom of a non-stick 20 cm spring form pan using the back of a spoon. Refrigerate until you prepare the white chocolate mousse.
  5. Prepare the white chocolate mousse. In a heat proof bowl add the chocolate and 150 gr whipping cream. Place the bowl over a saucepan with simmering water, over low heat until all the chocolate is melted. Meanwhile dissolve gelatin in 30 ml cold water and let  it swell for about 5 to 10 minutes. Place the gelatin over low heat just until the gelatin dissolves and pour it over the melted chocolate mixture. Let cool completely.
  6. Whip the remaining 200 gr cold whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add melted chocolate mixture and mix until well combined.
  7. Pour the chocolate mousse over the crust and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set.
  8. Prepare the strawberry mousse. Whip the cold whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add the cooled strawberry mixture and mix until well combined. Pour over the set white chocolate mousse.
  9. Refrigerate for about 4 hrs or overnight to set before serving. Run a warm knife around the edges of the cake to remove the sides of the pan.
