A Delicious Vanilla Mousse Recipe


Vanilla Mousse Recipe

This vanilla mousse recipe is creamy and delicious. This recipe does not use raw eggs like many other recipes do because consuming raw eggs can be dangerous. Frequently, eggs are found to be contaminated with Salmonella, a bacterium which causes food poisoning.

This dessert can be prepared ahead of time and kept overnight in the refrigerator. It is very easy to make and is the perfect dessert to enjoy after any meal. The cornstarch may form small clumps, so use a whisk to stir the mixture when cooking. You can also use a strainer to remove any clumps of cornstarch that form.


1/3 cup of sugar

Two tablespoons of cornstarch

One and a half cups of whole milk

One Tablespoon of pure vanilla extract

One cup of whipped cream


Combine the milk, cornstarch and sugar to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about three minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool completely.

Pour the contents of the saucepan into a mixing bowl and add the vanilla extract. Stir in the vanilla extract. Fold in the whipped cream and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Top with whipped cream and your favorite fruit.
