Ingredients
  

  • 8.5 ounces (approximately 2.25 cups) of frozen berries or any other type of fruit
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar (alternatively , you can use sugar substitutes like honey, maple syrup, or stevia extract to suit your taste)
  • 1 large egg white
  • Optional toppings: fresh berries and whipped cream for serving

Instructions
 

  • Place the fruit in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Process the fruit until it becomes a rough puree, which should take about 1 minute.
  • Add the sugar or another sweetener to the food processor and pulse briefly to mix it in. If using a different sweetener, add it gradually and taste as you go.
  • Add the egg white to the food processor and process until the mixture becomes smooth, fluffy, and lighter in color. This should take around 2 to 3 minutes, and the volume of the mixture may double or triple.
  • If the mixture sticks to the sides of the food processor bowl, transfer it to a medium-sized bowl and use a mixer with a whisk attachment to beat it until fluffy.
  • Spoon the mousse into glasses and optionally layer or top it with fresh berries and/or whipped cream.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate the mousse for up to 2 hours. Note that this mousse is not very stable due to its low sugar content, so it may not hold up for longer than 2 hours.
