Asian Sweet Potato Mousse

Asian Sweet Potato Mousse

Asian sweet potato pudding is good, but this mildly flavored mousse is nice too.
The mousse is lightly sweetened so enjoy with any syrup you like ~
It's great for small kids too!!

Ingredients: 5 ramekins about 4 cm in diameter

Asian sweet potato
Net weight about 150 g
5 g
100 ml
about 3~4 tablespoons
Heavy cream (either dairy or non dairy)
100 ml
Syrup of your preference (brown sugar syrup, maple syrup, etc.)
as needed


1. Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into small pieces, and soak in water. Soak the gelatin in about 3 tablespoon of water and microwave for 20 seconds at 600W to melt.
2. Drain the potatoes and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave until soft. (For 2 cm cubed potatoes, it was about 4~5 minutes at 600W.)
3. When the potatoes are soft, mash with a potato masher, when they are still hot. If you like it smoother, mash thoroughly.
4. Add milk to the mashed potato and mix with a whisk. Add sugar and heavy cream and combine well. When smooth, pour into the ramekins and chill in the refrigerator.
5. When set, enjoy as is, with syrup or whipped cream.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was addicted to Asian sweet potato pudding once and found the recipe for mousse!!
I prefer a looser mousse, so I changed the recipe a bit.
It's easy and has smooth texture. I like the mousse better.
