Frozen Strawberry Mousse Pie Recipe

This wonderful frozen pie is the ideal treat for hot summer afternoon, when the sun is shining, the breeze is warm and you want something deliciously sweet to help you cool down. Since this strawberry gelatin pie recipe is frozen rather than chilled, you do not need the crust to come up high and enclose the filling.

The crust for this frozen strawberry mousse pie recipe is thick and deep and the delicious strawberry mousse on top is made with strawberry puree, strawberry gelatin, and cream. The topping is a thin layer of chocolate and a spoonful of chilled strawberry mousse. This is an indulgent and delicious gelatin pie, which is simple to make and tastes gorgeous.

You can use any of the strawberry gelatin varieties to make this mousse dessert, including strawberry-banana, strawberry-kiwi, wild strawberry or strawberry margarita flavor. These gelatin flavors are all quite similar but slightly different too. For a change, use white chocolate for the topping on this frozen strawberry mousse pie recipe instead of milk chocolate. Because the chocolate layer is very fine, it will fracture when you cut into the pie, but this just adds to the appeal of this delicious and easy homemade pie recipe.
