Banana mousse recipe with step by step photos – a quick and tasty no cook dessert recipe of eggless banana mousse.
Desserts, cakes and muffins are made at home once or twice a week. So when I have time I take pics and update the recipes on the blog. This recipe of making mousse from some fruits is my go-to recipe.
I have made Mango mousse, Strawberry mousse, Chocolate mousse using the same recipe method. I had seen this recipe a few years back in a book and by now have tried many times making the mousse with fruits. This is a quick recipe and gets done in 15 minutes. The only time taken is chilling the mousse.
Tips for making banana mousse
- Usually I make this banana mousse with leftover amul cream (after adding it to the Punjabi gravies) and fruits that are on the verge of getting too ripened. Amul cream (which is 25% fat cream available in Indian markets) works well in such recipes. If you can get whipping cream, then you can also use that.
- Fruits that can be used are apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and mangoes. Avoid using melons or citrus fruits.
- This banana mousse recipe has honey instead of sugar and it really goes well with bananas. If you don’t have honey then add sugar instead.
Eggless banana mousse can be served plain or topped with some plain banana slices or caramelized banana slices. I topped with grated chocolate. You can also dust with some cocoa powder.
