Goat cheese mousse is a decadent appetizer that will "wow" guests, even though it's incredibly easy to make. Compared to plain fresh goat cheese, goat cheese mousse has a creamier, fluffier texture a milder flavor.

Chives taste especially good added to goat cheese mousse, but other fresh herbs like basil and parsley can be substituted.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Approximately l cup of mousse


  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 4 ounces soft, fresh goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives


Either by hand or using an electric mixer (which is much easier), whisk the cream until it has the texture of whipped cream. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together goat cheese and milk until goat cheese has softened. Mix in chives. Gently fold in whipped cream.

Serve chilled, with bread and/or crackers on the side.
