pineapple and cream

I don't know what to call this , pineapple and cream or pineapple mousse. As far as i know mousse is mostly made out of raw eggs, where the egg white is beaten stiff and mixed into the cream and all, but to tell you the truth, I am just not comfortable handling raw eggs, i can eat chocolate mousse and pineapple mousse at restaurants , but i just don't trust myself with raw eggs.So I am settling with gelatin.

Print this recipe
  • 1 tin pineapple
  • 1/3 cup pineapple syrup/juice(taken from the tinned pineapple)
  • 2    tsp  plain gelatin
  • 5    tbsp powdered sugar
  • 250ml  whipping cream


* Pour the whipping cream in a bowl add powdered sugar(the quantity of sugar is up to you) . Whip the cream till almost fluffy and double the volume. Keep this in the fridge till further use.

* chop the pineapple rings into small cubes and keep aside.

* In a bowl add 1/3 cup pineapple syrup, sprinkle gelatin into the syrup, keep it aside for few minutes.

*Double boil the gelatin liquid over a bowl of hot water till all the gelatin powder is dissolved and there is clear liquid. Take it off the double boil.

* Whisk the gelatin mixture with a hand whisk or electric beater (I used electric beater) till frothy.

* get the whipped cream out add the chopped pineapple (keep few aside for garnish). Fold in the frothy gelatin mixture.

* In a bowl lay some chopped pineapple. Pour in the cream mixture ,smooth it out and decorate with chopped pineapple.

*let the pineapple and cream set in the fridge for an hour.


  1. we were all over it the moment we saw it & nice dat u avoided raw eggs...cream was just fine...

  2. Please can you tell me what can we use instead of gelatin,

  3. Please ca you tell me what can we substitute for gelatin

  4. hi you can use agar agar or china grass instead of gelatine (vegetarian substitute) agar is dissolved in the liquid in a saucepan over medium heat, brought to a boil and simmer for five minutes and cool slighty and add to the cream.
