    Hi

    Am really disappointed - tried to make mix-a-mousse tonight but it didn't make mousse at all! Not sure what I did wrong as I blended my normal shake with the normal amount of water and then added a level scoop of mix-a-mousse and blended it in my blender and then poured it into a bowl and left it for 10 mins in the fridge and it didn't do anything, so I left it for 10 more mins and it still was just like a shake poured into a bowl!!

    Has anyone else had this experience of is there anything I am doing majorly wrong?

    What is the secret to the perfect mix-a-mousse?

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    Hiya

    150mls of water

    Put in freezer until ice cold but not crystalised

    Put the shake on the top of the water

    And a level scoop of MaM

    Using a good hand mixer (blenders never worked for me) give it 15 seconds

    Scrape the blade back into the mixture

    Another 15 seconds

    Then back in the freezer for 15 minutes until set hard

    ENJOY!

    P.S. If still like runny custard then leave it in the freezer until it sets.

    Last time I made it I ended up with blancmange! Mind you, I used vege-gel rather than MaM x

    Add the scoop of mix a mousse into the actual shake packet and give it a good shake then add to 200ml very cold water and blend/whisk for a minute then pop in fridge for 15mins. My CDC gave me the heads up about mixing it in the packet before adding water makes a big difference. I tried with 150ml first time and it turned out like blancmange I now get it perfect every time yum yum.
