For the sauce
1 1/2cupsfresh raspberries
1 1/2teaspoonslemon juice
For the mousse
2cupsheavy cream, divided
1/2cup(about 4 ounces) white chocolate chips
Make the sauce: place raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat; mash with the back of a wooden spoon. Transfer to fine-mesh sieve or strainer with tiny holes, over a bowl, and press out all the juice. Place in refrigerator.
Make the mousse: in a large bowl, using a hand held electric mixer, beat 1 3/4 cups of the heavy cream, the powdered sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes.
Put the white chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream in a medium sized, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, mixing, until chocolate is melted. Whisk 1 cup of the whipped cream into the melted chocolate. Then fold in the rest until combined.
Divide half of the mousse among 6 small tumblers; top each with 1 tablespoon of the chilled raspberry sauce and a few raspberries. Repeat with one more layer of the same. Sprinkle with shaved white chocolate, if desired
Refrigerate until cold; at least 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!
