Fromage blanc mousse with blueberry sauce

Very often people ask how to come up with a new recipe. The answer for me is quite straightforward, its all about the art of combining ingredients and flavours. You can take the most simple ingredients and get a very sophisticated result. The recipe below is exactly one of those.

Fromage blanc mousse with blueberry sauce


  • 250 g soft cheese (quark, fromage blanc)
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 4-6 tsp passionfruit curd (lemon curd)
  • 100 ml + 2 tbsp cream 30%
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 gelatine leaves (5-6 g)
  • 3-4 pieces Piparkakku (gingersnap)


  • 200 g frozen blueberries
  • 50 ml passion fruit juice (lemon juice)
  • 200 ml blueberry juice
  • 200 ml water
  • 1,5 tbsp corn starch
  • 100 ml sugar
  • Run the silicone moulds under a cold water and put to the freezer for 15 min
  • Soak the gelatine leaves in the cold water
  • Combine the cheese with 100 ml cream and icing sugar and beat until light foamy
  • Squeeze the water from the gelatine and dissolve it in 2 tbsp warm cream, add to the main mixture and beat again.
  • Whisk the egg white to the firm peaks. Add it to the main mixture in several batches
  • Fill in half of the moulds, then add 1 tsp of the passion fruit curd to the middle, and top with the rest of the mousse
  • Leave to set in the fridge for min 3 hours
  • Defreeze the blueberries and drain the juice
  • In a saucepan combine the blueberry juice (if you don’t have enough, add any liquor or water) and water
  • Add in the sugar and bring to the boil
  • Add in the corn starch dissolved in the passion fruit juice. Mix in the berries, stir gently, bring to the boil, simmer for 1-2 min. Remove from the heat and cool down completely
  • Crumble the gingersnaps
  • To serve pour the sauce into the plate, add the mousse and top with the gingersnap crumbs

Every time I post a recipe with the egg white I’m immediately asked what it could be substituted with. You can take the quail eggs, in the proportion 1:4. The trusted sources tell that the quail eggs are salmonella-free. This is the only substitution possible, you can take the whipped cream, but the consistency will be different. If you cheese is to liquid, drain off the whey first.
