This Strawberry Mousse looks like ice cream, but it’s not. However, it has all the creamy mouthfeel ice cream normally exudes and couldn’t be easier to put together. It will become a dessert staple in your household.
We are all so used to chocolate mousse, it honestly never dawned on me to try a different flavor. And trust me, I do love my chocolate mousse, but sometimes we all love to give something different a try.
This recipe for Strawberry Mousse is super unique because it is so, so fluffy right out of the mixer. And after you place it in the freezer for a few hours it becomes this pure, delicious, ice cream-like dessert that is lighter than air. Honestly, it’s kind of magical.
I originally put together this mousse as a Passover dinner dessert since it is non-dairy with no leavening. It’s so perfect for that holiday. But I make it year round, whenever I can get my hands on fresh strawberries. It never lasts long in my freezer.
If you are using a real egg you will need to separate the yolk from the white. We will only be using the white so use the yolk for something else. You could also use liquid egg whites to the equivalent of one large egg or powdered egg whites as suggested in the recipe.
There are so many mousse recipes out there as well as twists on mousse. You seriously can’t go wrong with one these desserts! I love the way this Avocado Chocolate Mousse sounds, just completely dreamy. However this Cotton Candy Mousse has me so intrigued along with this Chocolate Mint Oreo Mousse that I know I need to try soon. Who else thinks these Butterfinger Mousse Cheesecakes sound amazing?! This Cherry Ice Cream Chocolate Mousse Cake also sounds crazy good.
