Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse recipe highlights:
Cheesecake makes a regular appearance here on the blog. Just last week I shared this Ah-Mazing butterfinger cheesecake. It's still going crazy on social media! You guys love it. Today's recipe is a much simpler one. There's absolutely no baking involved.
Fresh strawberries are cooked with sugar and mixed with a little gelatin to thicken the mixture. That gets combined with cream cheese and whipped cream to create a light and silky cheesecake filling. It's so fresh tasting and absolutely perfect for this time of year.
To bring out more of the strawberry flavor, top the filling with fresh strawberries. If you like fresh spring berries, this simple recipe is for you!
I am certain you are going to really enjoy this recipe. It's so pretty and would be a fun treat to serve mom on her special day. Not to mention, it's fairly easy to make.
Mother's Day is all about celebrating mom and the countless sacrifices she makes to keep the household running smoothly. Show her how much you appreciate everything she has done and still does for you by making her this velvety smooth strawberry cheesecake mousse.
After one bite, she will think you spent the entire day slaving over such a lovely dessert. It's so creamy and practically melts away in your mouth. Strawberries and cheesecake are such a classic combination, it's like the flavors were made for each other.
The crust for the cheesecake mousse is nothing more than a sprinkle of crushed graham cracker crumbs. You can't have cheesecake without a graham cracker crust, that's just insane.
Top with fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream, and you've got yourself the best no-bake cheesecake. This smooth and creamy dessert is actually far better than any baked cheesecake I've ever had.
Serve it in individual mason jars, parfait glasses, or in fancy wine glasses, whatever fits your mom's personality.
