INGREDIENTS

Crust:

  • 300g tennis biscuits
  • 150 melted butter

Mousse:

  • 225g blueberries and blackberries
  • 225g cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp gelatine powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipping cream

METHOD

  3. Press the mixture evenly into a well greased spring form tart pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool completely. This step helps to form a good base for the tart.
  4. Add the berries to a food processor and blend until smooth, add the cream cheese, sugar, gelatine powder and vanilla essence and blend until combined.
  5. In a mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks are formed then gently fold in to the berry mixture.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared tart crust and refrigerate over night or until set.
  7. Gently remove the tart from the pan and garnish with berries of your choice.
