Recipe – Strawberry/Mango souffle (No bake)

With winters around the corner, everyone is gearing up to face the chill. New season brings a lot of different things with it. Most significant ones being new vegetables and fruits like carrots, oranges, radish, spinach and ofcourse, strawberries! Like mango is the king of summers, strawberry is the king of winters, atleast for me. I love these two fruits.

During a recent shopping spree in the local market, my eyes fell upon a box full of red strawberries at a fruit vendor.The first of this season. That very moment I decided to make a dish over the coming weekend using strawberries and bought a box. I pondered over what to make and finally decided to make what I made in the summers using Mango, i.e. a souffle.

Souffle is a french dish which means ‘to puff’. Usually people bake a souffle but my recipe involves no baking hence, it’s very easy and quick. There are just 5 ingredients used to make this no-bake souffle.

RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS:

(Serves 6-7)

  • 500ml vanilla ice cream
  • 200ml Cream
  • Ground sugar (to taste depending on how sweet the fruit is)
  • Gelatin (1 tablespoon)
  • Mangoes (2 whole) /Strawberries (300 grams)

METHOD:

  • To a cup of lukewarm water, add 1 tablespoon of gelatin and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Soften the vanilla ice cream by keeping it in a bowl for 5-10 minutes and add cream to it.
  • To this add some fruit puree (For the Puree: Grind the 1 mango’s pulp or 150 grams of chopped strawberries to make a thick paste)
