How to make Strawberry Mousse?
Think of Strawberry Mousse as a creamy strawberry flavored cream dessert, combine with fun toppings.
You only need a few ingredients for the mousse!
- Heavy cream
- Granulated sugar
- Fresh strawberries (chopped in small pieces)
After that, add chopped fresh strawberries to it and whip it together. You can puree the strawberries first if you prefer, but I like the small chunky bits of strawberries in the mousse.
And then comes the fun (and highly recommended) part: add all the layers!
I love layering my strawberry mousse with:
- strawberry preserve to intensify the strawberry flavors and give it an extra oomph of sweetness to the mousse
- fresh strawberries for a fresh bite of fruits
- whipped cream
And it really is as simple as that – 1) whip together strawberry mouse 2) layer it with toppings!
So easy! 🙂
It’s a recipe for the keeps!
Tips and Tricks
Now you know how to make strawberry mousse, let me give you a few tips and tricks to make this process even easier!
- Use electric mixer – hand-held mixer or stand mixer to whip the mousse together. You can mix it by hand but it is quite a laborious task doing it that way.
- Use strawberry preserve or jam instead of strawberry jelly for the bottom layer – get as close to the real stuff as possible!
- The mousse is only sweetened very slightly with the intention of being combined with a sweet preserve. If you are not layering it with strawberry preserve or jam, add more sugar to the heavy cream mixture.
- If you want it to look pretty, serve it in clear glasses so you can see the layers. I use small juice glasses to serve this and they are the perfect portion!
- If you are making ahead, make ahead the strawberry mousse but only layer with the other toppings when ready to serve.
I always feel ultra classy eating this. 🤍
