Serves 6

Prepare 20 mins + setting time 
Cook 10 mins


400g Strawberries
Grated zest and juice 1 orange
40g caster sugar
250g mini white marshmallows
2 x 200g tubs Waitrose Fromage Frais
2 tbsp roughly chopped pistachios


Reserve 6 small strawberries for decoration. Hull and roughly chop the rest and put them in a saucepan with the orange zest and juice, plus sugar. Stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 5–10 minutes until the strawberries are soft and pulpy.

Mash with a fork and stir in the marshmallows until melted. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.

Fold the fromage frais into the strawberry mixture and spoon into 6 serving glasses. Chill for at least 6 hours, until set.

Hull and slice the reserved strawberries and arrange on top of the mousses. Scatter over the pistachios to serve.
