So here I am again with a Fresh Strawberry dessert, and I have to admit this one is amazing. I was and always will be a lover of Mousse. Although I really just started making it more and more in the last year or so.

And I really don’t know what took me so long! I guess I have the Italian to thank, it was his idea to try making it after eating it in a restaurant. I liked the idea so I gave it a shot.

Back in March I made a Double Chocolate Mousse Cake for my youngest daughter’s birthday. And trust me it was good!

So now when I have friends over for dinner and I know I need to make a dessert. But let’s face it sometimes you really need something quick and easy and no bake.

And this Strawberry Mousse is just that! And only 3 ingredients!

How to make Strawberry Mousse

  • Remove about half a cup of puree and set aside.
  • Whip the cream until very thick.
  • Fold the remaining puree into the whipped cream until combined.
  • Place a couple of tablespoons of strawberry puree on the bottom of each glass (4 medium glasses).

Since this is Strawberry season in Italy, it is the fruit of the moment in our house. My daughter’s favourite, so we never have a shortage!

Although we did have a shortage of these Strawberry Mousse cups after the Italian got his hands on them. Definitely one of his no sharing desserts! Enjoy!

  • 12 1/2 ounces strawberries (3/4 pound)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup whole or whipping cream (cold)
  • extra strawberries for topping


  • Clean and slice the strawberries, In a blender or food processor add the sliced strawberries and the sugar and puree.  Remove 1/2 a cup of puree and set aside.
  • In a cold bowl add the cream and beat until stiff peaks form.  Then fold in the remaining puree (not the 1/2 cup) gently.
  • Divide the 1/2 cup of puree between the 4 small/medium** glasses and top with the strawberry mousse.  Refrigerate for approximately 1 hour or even over night if desired.  Top with fresh sliced strawberries and serve.  Enjoy.
  • ** for size purposes, the glasses I used hold 1 cup of water.


For anyone wanting to use this as a filling (eg pie or cake), this might help, whip the cream until soft peaks form, then in a small pot add 1 tablespoon of water and sprinkle the teaspoon of gelatine on top, let stand one minute, then place the pot on low heat and heat just until the gelatine has dissolved whisk until smooth, do not boil, then immediately remove from heat. Pour the gelatine (slightly cooled but not thickened if it does thicken too much then warm it up again) into the cream and continue to whip until firm peaks form, then continue with the recipe.

    This is an outstanding recipe! It’s easy, elegant and delicious. It’s become a family favorite. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Love the strawberry mousse and strawberry cupcakes I really would like to receive the recipe on my email please

    1. Hi Veronica, no I would not recommend freezing, because of the fresh cream it would probably separate. It will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge. So I would say 1-2 days in advance. Hope that helps.

    OMG!!! Super Good!! It’s very light and fluffy. I’m watching my sugar intake so used half the sugar and still fantastic.. I am going to try with frozen next batch. Do you have an easy recipe for chocolate mousse?

    1. Hi Vicky, thanks so much, so glad you enjoyed it. And yes I do, you can serve the mousse plain (I placed it in tarts). Hope you like it, have a great weekend. https://anitalianinmykitchen.com/chocolate-mousse-tarts/

  4. I’ve made this several times with fresh strawberries and everyone loves it. Can I also use frozen strawberries that I picked this summer?

    1. Hi Marti, thanks so much, so glad everyone enjoyed it. And yes frozen would work also. If you thaw them be sure to towel dry to remove as much excess moisture as possible.

  5. Made this amazing mouse this morning so easy a deliciously light .
    Thank you five and half stars ✅💐

    These were so easy & delicious & so attractive. They were not overly sweet and firmed up nicely after chilling a few hours. What a scrumptious treat for a warm summer day!
    A definite keeper!

  7. Re Strawberry Mousse……………….looks delish! Please can you let me have measurements in ounces …………..not sure what a CUP measurement is equal to!

  8. I started this delicious recipe and then got sick. I made the strawberry purée part and put it in the fridge. Now it’s 4 days later. Can I carry on with the whipped cream part and enjoy or do you think I have to toss it? Thanks!

    1. Hi Ashlea, sorry you got sick, I hope you are feeling better, it is supposed to last up to 5 days in the fridge, I would say if it doesn’t have mould and it doesn’t smell then taste a bit of it on a spoon if it tastes ok I would continue with the recipe. Let me know. Take care.
