Strawberry Mousse Recipe

Strawberry Mousse

Try this easy strawberry mousse recipe instead of the usual chocolate for a change that your family will notice. A fruit dessert is oftentimes just what is needed, especially in the heat of summer.


  • Try buying produce from a roadside stand. Fruit has often been picked in a nearby field and should be more flavorful and juicy than the ones you find in the supermarket.
  • Store berries in the fruit and vegetable bin of your refrigerator.
  • To fully appreciate their taste, take berries out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before eating them.
  • Strawberries contain lots of Vitamin C - a one cup serving covers your RDA for this vitamin.
  • For a very quick dessert, slice berries, sprinkle with just a hint of sugar, and serve with sweetened whip cream. This should bring a smile to just about anyone's face.

Strawberries are delicious and they easily mix into fruit desserts. So don't miss out, try the easy strawberry mousse recipe today.
