Saturday ~ Strawberry Mousse


I'm joining in for Pink Saturday with Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound. I went to the grocery store this week and bought a lot of fruit for my kids. They love fruits more than I do and they inspire me to eat healthier. The cost of fruits has been very high this winter so I was so happy to see that the grocery store had strawberries on sale. I bought 2 large containers of strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce. The chocolate was okay but now I want something lighter. I think I'm going to make mousse with the left over strawberries....yum, yum!

..
STRAWBERRY MOUSSE
2 cups sliced strawberries
3/4 cup boiling water
1 pkg. JELL-O Brand Strawberry Flavor
1 cup ice cubes
2 cups thawed Cool Whip
.
Divide strawberries among 6 dessert dishes. Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes; stir until completely melted. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping until well blended. Spoon over strawberries.

Have a nice weekend my friends!

  3. We had strawberries today, too! They were Spanish ones, and we're only two hours from the border, so I guess they were pretty fresh. We ate them with waffles and ice cream. So yummy. We have some left for Sunday so I'll have to think about how to serve them. I don't have the ingredients for your mousse and there are no shops open tomorrow, so I'll have to think laterally...
