Oh, Summertime I smell you getting closer! I am so happy. This is my second favorite time of year, Fall is the best but summer I welcome you with open arms. Summertime for me means busting out my patio furniture, lighting up that grill, planting beautiful flowers outside and cooking delicious light meals and desserts.
Spring However, is my test dummy. I always try out all new recipes and some of them make it to the summer menu and some don’t. This year I started out with a Strawberry Mousse, I will continue to perfect this recipe over the next few weeks. So as of now on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this a solid 7 but soon it’ll be a 10.
Follow me into my kitchen and let’s get started!
- 5 whole graham crackers
- 2 tbs melted butter
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 8 ounces of cream cheese
- 2 cups fresh strawberries
- 1 tsp vanilla
In a large bowl crush the crackers, add butter and sugar. Mix until it is finely crumbled. Set aside.
In an electric mixer add cream cheese and strawberries. Add vanilla and slowly pour in the cream.
Now time to create the layers. Graham cracker mixture on first and then mousse and proceed back and forth to make as many layers as your heart desires. Then either garnish with a strawberry or more of your sweet tasty crumbs.
Extra BONUS!!!! You can freeze the rest and have 🍨
