    Scoop is already in MAM tub. 150ml of very cold water. 1/4 teaspoon of water flavouring. Mix with a hand blender, food processor ... whatever. Put back in fridge and you'll have a clear bit at the bottom and a frothy white bit at the top.

    Hi,

    Having bought the Mix-A-Mousse for a couple of weeks at £3.50 a tub, was intrigued to find out the ingredients (not listed on the tub) and after some research discovered it is basically powered gelatine. I dont really use it to make the shakes into a mousse but use it to make jelly.

    So off I went to my local Tesco's and bought a box of Supercook Gelatine granuals (6 x sachets in a box) which was 55p!!!! Each sachet makes up the same as 1 & 1/2 scoops of MAM and turns out the same at a fraction of the price!

    Just thought I'd pass it on to anyone that was interested!!

    Cxx

    I also use supacook gelatine to make the jelly, stops that erm froth on top. i also use a few drops of either orange , red or green (dont ask , lol) food colouring. its much more appetising when it looks 'right'
    i still use mix a mousse to make the shake/tetra mousses as the gelatine has to be dissolved in hot water so not suitable for mousse making.
    still loving my trifle every single day. love it , love it, LOVE IT. lol

    how i make trifle :

    make jelly:
    450ml cold water in a jug, add 1 teaspoon orange or berry flavouring and a few drops food colouring .
    boil kettle and dissolve 1 sachet supercook gelatine in 50mls boiling water , stir till completely dissolved then pour into flavoured cold water and stir well.
    transfer to a trifle dish/large cereal dish.
    place in fridge for about 2 hours until set.

    making the topping:
    i have 2 preferred topping:
    a) using a chocolate tetra, make a mousse using one scoop mix a mousse and pour over the set jelly, put back in fridge for 10 minutes and enjoy.
    or:
    take a chocolate mint and a butterscotch pack, using half measures, make up half a chocolate mint mousse (100 mls water and half scoop mix a mousse) and pour over the jelly.
    leave for 5 minutes until starting to set.
    in the meantime make up the butterscotch mousse in the same way, then pour over the top of the chocolate mint mousse.
    leave for another 5 minutes and tuck in :)
    i have this every single night

    u can of course make it with mix a mousse jelly but tbh, the froth kinda gets in the way when ur wanting to pour a mousse over it. lol
