Number of serving: 2
10 pieces of dried apricots

2 tbsps sugar

A small pinch of vanila beans

300 ml of thickened cream

A handful of toasted flaked almonds


  • In a small pot, fill enough water to cover apricots and soak for 25 minutes or more.
    Then simmer the apricots in water until mashable. You may need to add in more water if it starts to dry up.
    Stir in sugar and cook for further 5 minutes.
    Puree the apricots by using an electric blender. Set aside to cool.
    (Note: If the mixture seems a little dry, add the syrup which the apricots are cooked in.)
    In a mixing bowl, add in the thickened cream and vanila beans. Whip the cream until soft set.
    Fold in the half of cooled pureed apricots and gently mix to combine.
    Layer the mousse in a small glass with the remaining pureed apricots.
    Sprinkle some toasted almonds over the mousse and chill thoroughly.

You didn't explain how to thicken the cream. I tried to use organic cream and vanilla extract because I didn't have vanilla beans. I couldn't find whole vanilla beans. I made this recipe and it has no flavor. Also in the recipe it needed to be more specific about how long it takes to get the cream soft set. Very confusing when you say 300 ml of thickened cream. Luckily I have a measuring cup that has ml on it. I also tried to make a bigger batch. I want to try and make this again but I need to know all the particulars of the recipe.
