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

  • In a blender or food processor puree the strawberries with the sugar.
  • 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).
  • Top with the Strawberry Mousse and then refrigerate for approximately one hour or even longer if desired.
  • Serve with fresh sliced strawberries. So good!

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 thickened and stir in the puree, then in a small pot add 2 tablespoons of milk and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of gelatine on top, let stand one minute, then place the pot on low heat and heat just until the gelatine has dissolved, stirring often (1-2 minutes), do not boil, then immediately remove from heat. Add 1 -2 tablespoons of the whipped cream mixture to the gelatine mixture and stir gently to combine, fold the gelatine into the remaining whipped cream mixture.

    This was so easy yet so elegant
    Definitely way to sweet though
    Made it as written first time I made them
    Cut the sugar in half second time
    Added a dusting of grated chocolate too
    Will probably cut sugar down just a bit more next time. Will be trying it out with raspberries next time
    Peaches would probably be yummy too.

  2. Have you tried it with raspberries? I am thinking of layering it with a chocolate mousse I make, and I feel like raspberries might be nicer as a contrast to the chocolate. Thanks!

    1. Hi Izzy, you could definitely try it with raspberries and yes chocolate and raspberries are a great combination. Let me know how it goes. Take care!

  3. Hard to figure out weight of berries when you buy them in bulk. How much berries cup-wise? ratio of berries to cream would be helpful. Thank you

    Wonderful! The mousse was iight and fluffy, Wish the puree had been a little thicker – maybe more strawberries? Anyway, it looked beautiful and is absolutely delicious. Thanks.

    1. Hi Priscilla, I would say a day in advance, cover the glass well with plastic wrap and refrigerate, it should be fine. Let me know how it goes.

    I think this is exactly what I’m looking for….will this hold up in a white chocolate semi sphere? I’m looking for a strawberry mousse to present in the molded chocolate as the vessel with a dark chocolate drizzle, and this sounds delish! If not, I’ll use glass but my fingers are crossed!

    1. Hi Terri, I really don’t think it will be as firm as you are hoping it would be because there is no gelatine in it. Although the chocolate is firm enough it might work. Let me know. Take care.
