Why you’ll love this fresh strawberry mousse
What ingredients do I need to make it?
You’ll need all the ingredients shown in the photograph below.
Our homemade mousse is a must-try for any strawberry lover. Made with fresh strawberries and cream, it’s light, fluffy, and absolutely delicious.
What do I serve strawberry mousse with?

What is mousse?
When it comes to dessert, one of our favorite go-to light desserts is our fluffy strawberry mousse.
But what is mousse, exactly?
Mousse is a type of dessert that is light and fluffy in texture.
It’s often made with whipped cream and eggs and can be flavored with a variety of different ingredients, including chocolate, coffee, and fruit.
Strawberry mousse is a very popular variation of the classic mousse recipe.
Fresh strawberries are blended with sugar and whipped cream to create a light and fluffy mixture.
We love it and think you will too!
Can I use frozen strawberries?
Yes, you can.
We used fresh berries because they were in season and fresh strawberry puree is insanely good.
But you can easily use frozen strawberries instead.
Just make sure you thaw them first.
Do you need to use gelatine in a mousse?
As unflavored gelatine mixture is not suitable for vegetarians, we don’t use it.
If you’d like to include gelatine then it’s possible to buy vegetarian gelatine these days.
Top it off!
We’ve gone traditional and served our mousse with sliced strawberries.
But you can top them with your favorite toppings.
White or milk chocolate chips, how about a crumbled homemade chocolate chip cookie over it?
That would be awesome!
Try scattering assorted fresh berries or save some strawberry puree to drizzle over the top!
How do I store homemade strawberry mousse?
Our homemade strawberry mousse will keep for up to 3 days when stored in the fridge.
You can also freeze strawberry mousse; just ensure its wrapped properly and it’ll freeze for up to 2 months.
The texture will change but it’ll still be delicious.
And if you have any leftover strawberries, why not make strawberry rice krispies from One Hot Oven?
