Homemade strawberry mousse recipe

Light as air and bursting with authentic strawberry taste, Strawberry Mousse is delicious! It appears incredibly elegant on the plate and tastes even better when garnished with additional fresh berries and velvety cream. We adore serving this at get-togethers like brunches and gatherings.
Although making this delicate treat may seem difficult, trust me when I say it’s incredibly simple! With this fundamental recipe, you can create countless variations. Alternate the fruits, add a cake or brownie on top, and more.

What is mousse?

It is a light, whipped treat that can be either sweet or savory. There are almost infinite flavor combinations available. Pumpkin, peanut butter, and fruit flavors like clementine, pomegranate, and mango are some of our favorites.

Recipe variations:

  • Mixed berries: Add in some blackberries and blueberries into the puree.
  • Mixed fruits: Blend in some sweet mangoes, kiwis, or passion fruits into the strawberries.
  • Curd topping: Top with lemon curd, vanilla bean strawberry curd, or key lime curd instead of cream for a refreshing finish.
  • Trifle: Alternate layers of fruit, chiffon, mousse, and whipped cream.
