Strawberry Mousse

With a less than 15 minute preparation time and only 97 calories a serving this could not be a better summer pudding.
With stawberries in season it is another way to ring the changes!
It uses up those strawberries that are not quite perfect and is a light and delicious end to any meal. 2 Large Egg Whites -- beaten stiffly 1/2 Cup Caster Sugar 1 Pinch Salt 250 Grams Strawberries 2 Tablespoons Brandy or Vodka 1 Cup Whipped Cream -- optional Beat egg whites with the salt until they hold peaks. Beat in sugar 2 tablespoons at a time and continue to beat until the meringue is stiff and shiny. Puree the strawberries with the brandy or vodka. Fold into the egg whites and then fold in the cream if you are using this. Chill for 3 hours and decorate with extra strawberries.
If you use too many strawberries then this becomes like a strawberry sauce or if frozen like a sorbet.
