Besides dipping, strawberry mousse is also used as an ingredient or element in some other strawberry dishes, too, such as strawberry chiffon pies and strawberry parfaits. Here's how you make it:
1 Cup (250 mL) Strawberry Gelatin OR Strawberry Pudding
1 Cup (250 mL) Heavy Cream OR Whipped Topping
There are "two" recipes here inasmuch as a mousse made with gelatin will definitely taste different from a mousse made with pudding. Making a mousse with pudding is the more traditional way, but the use of pre-sweetened and pre-flavored gelatin is typically cheaper and easier.
Whether the mousse is made with gelatin or with pudding, the way to make the mousse is the same. First, place the heavy cream, or the whipped topping, in a mixing bowl. If you are using heavy cream, it should be whipped until it is stiff. Next, add the gelatin, or the pudding, to the bowl. Mix the ingredients together fully. That's all there is to it! Really easy!
If you were hoping for a strawberry Jello-brand dessert recipe for the mousse, then all you need to do is use Jello-brand strawberry gelatin, of course (many people look specifically for Jello-brand recipes, so if that's you, hopefully adding this little bit to the page helped you get here!)
