Frozen Cheesecake Mousse With Red Berries

With basic ingredients and 100% natural, this frozen cheesecake mousse is perfect to always have in the freezer and make it a dessert.

For the warmest days of summer in Spain, here is a delicious homemade dessert, 100% natural and healthy (or at any time, because it is delicious). The beauty of this frozen cheese mousse is that it is airy, ethereal but with cheese flavor to almost make a light ice cream perfect as a dessert or snack.

Of course, the cheese to be used can vary to suit everyone’s tastes, but I would always keep a cream cheese base, which in this case is Mascarpone, but you could use any type of cream cheese, then goat cheese can mutate to become a brie, a manchego or even a little blue cheese as long as the proportions are adjusted it is a matter of gradually adding the chosen cheese and testing the mixture until you find the right amount.

It is a white cheese with a soft and creamy consistency, with a sweet and very caloric flavor due to its high fat content. Although technically speaking, Mascarpone is not a cheese, but the result of adding a culture of bacteria to the cream that is extracted from the milk that is used to make Parmesan cheese in a process very similar to that of making yogurt.

After adding the bacteria culture to the cream, it is gently heated, then allowed to ripen and thicken. It is a very delicate product that must be consumed fresh because it spoils very easily. It is the main ingredient in tiramisu.

Although here the proposed coulis is made of red fruits, the fruit topping can also be the most varied, I always recommend that you use the seasonal fruits that you see in the supermarket. For example, now a coulis of peaches, figs or a melon jam would be great options.
