Fresh Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse Recipe
Looking for a light fruity dessert? Fresh Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse is great served as is, or it can be layered with fruit and cake in parfait glasses. It makes a great pie or tart filling, too, as well as a perfect filling between layers of a cake. This recipe has few ingredients, and goes together quickly, so it’s a perfect dessert for busy cooks. As a bonus, this mousse can be made two or three days ahead, and it’s even good frozen.
If strawberries aren’t available, you can substitute blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or a mixture; whatever is fresh and on hand. Fresh Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse is light, airy, and fruity – perfect for summer, but also great all year round.
