I love blueberries, and although I usually consume them as-is when I prepare fruit salads or when I add them in my cereal at breakfast, there are times like this when it’s appropriate to give them a different touch. I came across this recipe from Ben Mims, and I thought that it was such a simple-to-make dessert and a version that’s unusual from the typical mousse, so I didn’t hesitate to prepare it. What I did was just an adaptation, as I made some modifications to the original recipe.
The result, simply fabulous, such a colorful dessert, absolutely delicious, and just the right portion. It’s an excellent alternative to endulge on a sweet treat at dessert time.
