Watermelon Mousse

Watermelons are one of the favorite fruits, here it is available all through the year. We are fortunate in Singapore we get to find logo.jpgall the different varieties of fruits from all over the world. We love all the different kind of melons available and we rarely blend it into juice or any desserts. I am still wondering how to select sweet melons which we are still naive at. Most of the times we buy melons its ends up semi sweet or at times tasteless then find its way to the blender to blend it for a juice. Luckily for Bee who is hosting the AFAM Watermelon this time when my h bought the melon was super sweet. Honestly i had half mind to use it blend it to any recipe. I just used one quarter of the melon the remaining we relished the fresh fruits, but was extremely satisfied with the end result. This is my contribution to this month’s AFAM for watermelon hosted by Bee which is initiated by Maheswari

    Thanks Tee, i myself was surprised by the taste and look…. thanks for the suggestion of selecting watermelons… i have tried that but very difficult is what i don’t get it is how hollow the sound should be ? will try to experiment with this again….

  11. Tee says:

    oh, forgot to say….to see if water melons are ready, tap them with your finger, if you hear a hollow kind of a sound, its ready.

    Roopa,

    This sounds like a delicious recipe. I can’t wait to try with all kinds of fruit puree. Where can I get agar agar?

    Kanchana
    ps. I added you to my links

    Thanks Kanchana, exactly you can use any fruit puree. well agar agar is substitute for vegetarians you should be able to find in chinese grocery shops. Try to buy the powder you even get it in stalks which looks more like a nooddles.

  29. That’s a beautiful mousse, Roopa! I love the color 🙂

    Linda

    Thanks Linda 🙂
