Healthy Strawberry Mousse

Healthy Strawberry Mousse

This healthy strawberry mousse recipe tastes amazing and is super light & refreshing too.


It’s also packed with vitamin C from the strawberries and protein from the Greek yoghurt, which helps us to feel fuller for longer.


I used xanthan gum in this recipe as a thickener which I’ve never actually used before – it looks like baking powder and trust me.. a little goes a long way!!
