    Is it a LL mousse? Or are you using CD mix-a-mousse with LL packs?

    When I make mousse, I use a bit more water than stated (but use whatever suits you - or what's recommended on the pack).
    I use VERY cold water out of the fridge.

    Put the shake powder into my blender cup / container and then plonk a heaped scoop of MAM right in the middle so it's 'floating' on a raft of shake powder.
    Then I quickly zizz it up with my stick blender (or even better, my Hinari genie blender ... )

    You have to do this quickly so the MAM doesn't stick to the sides of the container or begin to clog as it meets the liquid.

    After a good zizz, I pour it into a bowl then leave it in the fridge to set (about 15 mins).

    Less water gives a firmer consistency ... a bit more water makes it more like blancmange. :)

    Mix-a-mousse is a Cambridge product (I also use it to make jelly out of water and CD flavouring).

    I think you can buy it from the Cambridge website (although I get mine from my CDC). Don't know if it would be 'officially' sanctioned by LL but as we use it on Cambridge and they work on the same VLCD principle I can't see why not.

    Any CDCs able to take this one?
