Rock Melon & Honey Mousse

Rock melon and honey mousse is a refreshing and easy to make dessert!



For the rock melon mousse

  • 1 cup rock melon puree (ripe melon, rind removed, chopped and pulsed in food processor until smooth)
  • 1 1/2 tsp powdered gelatine
  • 1/8 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (adjust to your taste)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cold cream


For the honey mousse

  • 1/2 tsp powdered gelatin
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 35 g honey
  • 1/2 cup cream



  1. Prepare the melon mousse first; place gelatine and cold water in a small bowl to allow the gelatine to soften. Place melon puree in a medium saucepan with sugar and lemon juice and heat on low until the sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Add softened gelatine to the mixture, heat and stir until the gelatine dissolves completely.
  3. Remove from the heat and chill mixture in fridge until it reaches around room temperature and is starting to thicken.
  4. Whip cream in a large mixing bowl to soft peaks. Add vanilla to melon mixture and then fold whipped cream until all the lumps are removed.
  5. Pour into 4-6 individual serving glasses and chill in the fridge until set, at least 45 mins.
  6. Prepare the honey mousse. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and set aside.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt and honey. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip the cream to medium stiff peaks. Set aside.
  8. Heat the gelatin in the microwave for 12 seconds or melt on top of a double boiler. Working quickly, pour the melted gelatin over the yogurt and whisk thoroughly.
  9. Gently fold in the whipped cream until everything is blended.
  10. Pour over the top of set melon mousse and chill until set or overnight. To serve, top with fresh melon pieces.
