Strawberry Mousse Recipe

I absolutely love desserts with strawberries, and this one is no exception. This blends a creamy, homemade strawberry mousse with a rich strawberry gelatin puree and a homemade whipping cream layer for a delicious dessert. Not only will it taste great, it’s a dessert that is perfect for a party as it looks pretty, too!

This is one of those times where you wish you could reach into your screen and pull out what your looking at. This Strawberry Mousse looks like a dessert that would be served at a 5 star restaurant. To say it looks delicious is an understatement.
