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.
- 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
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.
