Method

  1. Put the quartered strawberries in a food processor or blender with the icing sugar and lemon juice, if using, and blitz to a smooth purée. Add 1 tbsp to each serving glass and set aside.
  2. Put the grated white chocolate in a mixing bowl with the whipping cream and remaining strawberry purée, then whip to stiff peaks. Divide between the glasses, then transfer to the fridge for at least 1 hr (or up to 12 hrs) to set.
  3. To serve, halve the reserved strawberries and use a vegetable peeler to peel the remaining chocolate into small curls. Use to top the mousses, then add a mint sprig to each glass, if you like.
