30 mins (prep 30)
7 ingredients
8 servings
Usually when I say my grandmother, I mean my maternal one, but this is one of the few recipes I have from my paternal grandmother. She died when I was a toddler but I sure do remember this mousse! It really is quite simple to make and is delicious and elegant served with fresh berries of any sort.
