Layered Green Tea Mousse (10 min + 7 ingredient)

This is hands down one of the easiest dessert I’ve ever made. It requires only 7 ingredients and 10 minutes to prepare. No oven or a stand mixer needed. The results? Glasses of rich, pastel coloured mousse with a lovely taste of green tea. Sweet, milky and pretty.

This recipe is adapted from New Japanese Kitchen by Kyoko Rabbetts, and is originally called the Sakura and Matcha Mousse. As it reminds me of Christmas colours, I thought I’ll make it for this year’s Christmas party.
