Strawberry mousse | Creamy & Fluffy mousse | No egg & No gelatin

Hello, my readers here I am with you a beautiful strawberry dessert called strawberry mousse.

A mousse (French 'foam' /ˈmuːs/) is a soft prepared food that incorporates air bubbles to give it a light and airy texture. It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, depending on preparation techniques. A mousse may be sweet or savoury.
Sweet mousses are typically made with whipped egg whites, whipped cream, or both, and flavoured with one or more of chocolate, coffee, caramel pureed fruits, or various herbs and spices, such as mint or vanilla. In the case of some chocolate mousses, egg yolks are often stirred into melted chocolate to give the final product a richer mouthfeel. Mousses are also typically chilled before being served, which gives them a denser texture. Sweetened mousse is served as a dessert, or used as an airy cake filling. It is sometimes stabilized with gelatin. Here I used china grass which is the vegetarian version of gelatin to stabilise the mousse.
