Strawberry Whip Cream Dessert Mousse

This is a delicious gelatin dessert and if you are a fan of easy dessert recipes you will find it quick and simple to make. This strawberry whip cream gelatin dessert can be made with regular gelatin or sugar-free strawberry gelatin and the result will taste the same. You can also use sugar-free Cool Whip or unsweetened fresh whipped cream if you are really watching your weight.

You might like to garnish each dessert glass with a fresh strawberry or a dusting of chocolate powder, or even both. This gelatin dessert makes a great finish after a rich, heavy meal because it is light, fruity, and full of flavor. Everyone likes mousse and homemade mousse recipes are much nicer than commercial ones.

Although this dessert looks a bit like a beverage, it is a dessert because it is allowed to set. The gelatin helps it to set nice and soft, yet firm enough to eat with a spoon. You can make adjustments to the recipe if you want, trying a different flavor of gelatin, or using raspberries instead of the strawberries. As long as you stick with fruity gelatin mixes and similar fruits the recipe will turn out great.
