This Goat Cheese Mousse with Roasted Blueberries is a simple, light and elegant dessert that's perfect for summer. Only 4 ingredients!

Hello from Germany! I prepared and photographed this easy summer dessert just before leaving the United States for our summer vacation. We’ve been having an amazing time abroad. Germany is absolutely gorgeous and I feel so lucky to be visiting (and staying with very generous friends).  

This Goat Cheese Mousse with Roasted Blueberries is a simple, light and elegant dessert that's perfect for summer. Only 4 ingredients!

I assumed I would use this post to share photos and stories from abroad, but honestly I’m kind of exhausted. It has been non-stop adventure since we arrived and today is our first chance to rest. We’ve been leaving at 8am and often not returning to the flat until 10-11pm. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am enamored with the historic villages, cobblestone streets and old castles. More castles than I could have ever imagined. Each town is more beautiful than the next. Tomorrow we’re hopping on a train to Berlin. After that we’ll be headed to Prague.

I will return home in a couple weeks but for now I leave you with a simple summer dessert. With only 4 ingredients, this goat cheese mousse is surprisingly light and delicate. Feel free to swap out the blueberries with your favorite summer fruit.

Goat Cheese Mousse with Roasted Blueberries
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 6-8 servings
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups heavy cream, cold
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
  • 2-3 cups blueberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the goat cheese in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a large stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream and sugar to a stiff peak (this can also be done by hand.)
  3. Spoon half of the whipped cream into the bowl with the goat cheese and vigorously whisk until smooth. Add the remaining whipped cream and gently fold to combine. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
  4. Place the blueberries on the prepared baking sheet and roast in 4 minute intervals, shaking the pan at each interval to ensure that the berries roast evenly. They should be nice and roasted after 12-16 minutes.
  5. Spoon the mousse into small bowls and top with the roasted blueberries.
Notes
For best results, serve the mousse within 2-3 hours.

    Absolutely in love with this recipe, Jennifer! Goat cheese pairs so wonderfully with berries and turning that into a mousse thing is just wonderful. Glad to hear you’ve had a great vacation and stay in Germany so far. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Isn’t Germany just the best? You are going to love Berlin … it’s one of the most interesting places I’ve ever been …
    I made something very similar to this recently called ‘lemon posset’ (and old English dessert) and put a blueberry compote on top, too. Love these kinds of simple desserts!

    love the idea of Goat cheese in a mousse – must lighten up the flavour and that with the berries is a big win for me! Prague is pretty stunning too – have fun!
