Ingredients

  • 1 pt (~475 mL) of heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 4.5 oz (130 g) of strawberry jello
  • graham crackers
  • fresh strawberries

Directions:

Prepare the jello according to the directions on the packaging.

Beat the cream with a hand mixer until it is stiff, leaving peaks when you lift the mixer.

When the jello is set mid way (slightly loose, slightly firm), add it to the whipped cream and mix everything.

Crush the graham crackers and sprinkle them on the bottom of the bowl or cups in which you will serve the mousse.

Place a strawberry on the crackers and pour the strawberry mixture in.

Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until it is firm.

Decorate with some strawberry slices. Makes about 6 servings.

Thoughts

This is a quick and simple dessert for the spring and summer. It is light and not too sweet. Kids love this dessert (I surely did when I was younger). This can be great for garden parties or as an afternoon snack. Its fluffy texture makes it fun to eat and it won’t fill you up so much that you don’t want to eat anything else. You can try this with different flavors of jello. It is up to you, so be creative!

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Not only is this another winning recipe, but you present and photograph everything so well. We first eat with our eyes, true?

    Wonderful, too, that fresh berries are quickly becoming a “current event,” soon to play a starring role in kitchens everywhere. Your recipe lends itself to many variations too, I think. I can’t wait for my favorite, red raspberries, to reach their peak in another month or so, so I can give your idea a try using raspberries!

    1. Let me know how it is with raspberries! They are one of my favorite fruits which remind me of my childhood as my grandparents had a lot of raspberries growing in their garden and my brother and I would eat nearly all of them!
