Flavor of the strawberry mousse

It has sweetness from strawberries, and rhubarb adds a lovely acidic taste to this creamy drink. To tell the truth, this is perfect combination of rhubarb and strawberries with yogurt base, like a sweet song. It has creamy texture with sweet and zesty notes.

Actually, you can add sugar to your taste or sweeten it with Stevia instead.

Why you need Agar-Agar

Strawberries and rhubarb have a lot of juice, and Greek yogurt doesn’t deliver enough thickness to this drink. So we used agar-agar to help it firm up a little.

You need to cook it for few minutes with added Agar-Agar to get it work, but it still will be drinkable without agar-agar (maybe more runny). Agar-Agar doesn’t add any flavor at all.

Health

By the way, this beautiful fruity drink with agar-agar and Greek yogurt is healthy and good for your stomach too. So it can be served any time of the day.

You can also use soy yogurt instead of Greek yogurt to make this recipe vegan-friendly.
