Guava Mousse

When I walked into a local market with a friend of mine this afternoon, we both paused and inhaled deeply. She embarked on a search for that delicious scent and I went to grab a few of the things I needed to get.

"I found it!" she declared, coming to find me and gesturing towards a bin of guava. So, I walked over and plunked half a dozen of the fragrant fruit into my basket.

After my boys devoured half of the guavas, I decided to make an adaptation of this easy Banana Mousse. I'm going to head back to the market tomorrow to scoop up a few more. This was as delectable as it was easy.


Ingredients
  • 2 C organic heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 3 ripe guavas
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon

Procedure
Destem and chop your guava into cubes. Place the pieces in your blender along with the sugar. Puree until smooth. Press the guava pulp through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. I ended up with about 1 C smooth guava puree.

In a large mixing bowl, whip the cream and ground cinnamon until stiff peaks form. 

Fold the guava mixture into the whipped cream.

Spoon the mousse into serving glasses; I used small jars. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.
