The creamiest Dip EVER and ideal for Mother's Day ! This Vanilla Mousse Dip is perfect for dipping fruits, fresh or grilled, cookies or a combination of the 2

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this Vanilla Mousse Dip is a perfect light dessert to share with your Mom.

This is an incredibly, delicious creamy dip and can be used with fresh fruit, grilled {as I did}, or you could have a plate stacked with a variety of fruits and cookies to dip.

I would have loved to serve this to my late Mom, as she had such a sweet tooth, and she was always looking for something to nibble on. She could not eat large meals – what we consider as standard portions – at a time, and therefore she had lots of small meals throughout the day.

My Mom-In-Law on the other hand, will also love this. I plan on spoiling her quite a bit this Mother’s Day, as we will also be celebrating something else, centering around her. I know she reads the blog now and then, so I do not want to give away too much of what I have planned.

Let’s just say, I might make this Vanilla Mousse Dip,,, or I might make something else, maybe this White Chocolate Dip !

Vanilla Mousse Dip

If you are planning to make this Dip, for Mother’s Day or any other day, try making it only a little while before serving as chilling will harden the Dip – it does soften up again when you bring it back to room temperature, but there is a slight change in taste.

Servings: 6 People

Ingredients
  • 3 TB Water
  • 2 t Gelatin plain
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cornflour (Cornstarch)
  • 1 t Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Fresh Cream (double cream/whipping cream)
TO SERVE:
  • Pineapple strips or cubes
  • Honey
  • Lemon Juice
Instructions
  1. Place the Water in a small bowl – sprinkle over the Gelatin and let stand until spongy ( 3 - 5 minutes )

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the Sugar and Water – bring to the boil, turn down the heat to medium and let simmer until the Sugar has dissolved and the mixture is syrupy
  3. Place the Cornflour in a small bowl – add a little of the Sugar Syrup and mix until a paste forms – now add the Cornflour paste to the Syrup – simmer whilst stirring continuously – stir in the Gelatin – keep stirring until the Gelatin has dissolved – remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes – add the Vanilla and stir well – cool completely
  4. Whip the Cream until stiff peaks form – slowly add the Vanilla/Syrup mixture and fold through gently
TO SERVE:
  1. Mix a little Honey and Lemon Juice – brush over the Pineapple and grill, using a health griller, George Foreman grill or however you prefer

Recipe Notes

Serve the Dip at room temperature (chilling will harden the Dip, but 30 minutes out of the refrigerator will soften it again) with the grilled Pineapple
