    Hi, I had my first mousse today. Thought the taste was lovely but it was slightly lumpy. I used my electric whisk followed by the blender attachment.

    Any tips for a lump free mousse please?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey,
    How do u make it? Do u make sure the water is ice cold?
    I have water in the fridge all the time so use that if not then put it in the freezer for a bit.
    I then put the mix a mousse powder and shake pack together and mix them up with a fork so that u dont get any gelatine lumps. Then add that with the water to my blender and blend for about 3-4 mins and then put it in the fridge fro about 10 mins.
    Its perfect!!!

    Hi, thanks for your replies bo_lady and maggie ray.

    I chill the water in the freezer for 30 mins first. I then mix the gelatine and shake powder, add the water then whisk and blend.

    I will trying using the fork first and hopefully this will rid of the lumps.

    Thanks for your tips!

    Thanks Cherry, I'll see how the fork thing works but may try the strainer if I still have lumps.
