Cheesecake Strawberry Mousse Recipe with Fresh Mint

This strawberry mousse recipe is made with milk, vanilla, cream, instant pudding and fresh strawberries, as well as a sprig of fresh mint for color. If you like, you could add a few drops of red or pink food coloring to this strawberry mousse recipe, just to intensify the color. That is completely optional, of course, and it will taste the same whether or not you choose to do that.

If you are a fan of desserts like strawberry mousse cake or pies with strawberry mousse filling, you should enjoy this simple yet tasty strawberry mousse. This is a fluffy gelatin dessert, which is made with fresh strawberries and cheesecake pudding instead of strawberry gelatin. This gives it an airier finish and a softer texture than using gelatin.

You can use any flavor of pudding to make this mousse recipe. Perhaps you want to use white chocolate pudding, pistachio pudding, pumpkin pudding or lemon pudding, in which case just use the corresponding flavor of instant pudding, and add any fruit puree you want to. The whipped cream is the ingredient, which really adds lightness and airiness to this strawberry mousse recipe. You can use Cool Whip if you prefer. The result will be very similar.
