Valentines Day Recipe: Strawberry Mousse

Last Updated on February 16, 2020 by

With Valentines day fast approaching I have started trying out some new recipes much to my family’s delight! I love mousse but a lot of the recipes I find for it contain all sorts of artificial stuff that I don’t like to buy. I found a this Strawberry Mousse recipe on Food.com and was impressed with how simple the ingredients were. Putting the mousse and fruit in a decorative glass like a wine glass or margarita glass makes this Valentines Day recipe not only tasty but pretty as well! You could also make this mousse with raspberries if you prefer. I bet using blackberries would work, too, but then you would be left with a purple mousse instead of pink but probably equally tasty.

  3. At first glance I totally thought this was a margarita. But a strawberry mousse is even better!

  4. I love orange and strawberry together, so I think I would def. use the orange juice to make this!

    Came out great when I made it, although I did add a tbsp or more sugar to it. I had very tart OJ so it would be fine with Tropicana or something. Wonderful and easy (especially since I made my kids and the neighbor’s to cut the strawberries!).
