Easy Strawberry Mousse Dessert

You're only 3 ingredients away from a delicious light and fluffy dessert. This Easy Strawberry Mousse Dessert is made with fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint (about 2 1/2 cups) strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup VERY COLD heavy whipping cream
  • small whole strawberries for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Make sure your mixing bowl is very cold before you start the recipe. I usually will fill my bowl with ice and let it sit while I prepare the strawberry puree. Then, emptu the ice and dry the bowl before using to make the whipped cream.
  • Trim green tops off of strawberries. Slice fruit. Place strawberry slices and sugar in a blender. Puree the fruit. Reserve 1/2 cup of the strawberry puree.
  • In a cold bowl add the whipping cream and beat until stiff peaks form. You can use a stand mixer, electric hand mixer, or by hand with a whisk. Then lightly fold in the remaining puree (not the reserved 1/2 cup) gently.
  • Using the reserved strawberry puree, divide it between the 4 small (one cup capacity) glasses and top each with the strawberry mousse. Refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving. Garnish with whole small strawberries.
