  • 2 ½ cups strawberries, stems removed + for serving
  • cup granulated white sugar
  • 2.5 cup (20 oz) heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Place strawberries in a blender (or use an immersion blender), add lemon juice, vanilla and sugar. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  • In a large deep bowl, whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. (Reserve about 4 tablespoons to top up the berry mousse for serving).
  • Now, gently, fold (using a spatula) the strawberry mixture into the whipped cream mixture until just combined (very lightly not to loose the texture of the whipped cream).
  • Spoon the strawberry mousse into serving glasses and refrigerate for at least 2-4 hours or keep checking until you’ll see the desired firmer texture (Ideally overnight).
  • Prior to serving, decorate with plain whipped cream that you reserved earlier using a spoon or piping bag and decorate with diced strawberries and mint leaves and any other favorite toppings you love (I love to add coconut flakes or shredded white chocolate). Enjoy!



  • This recipe can also be made with only three ingredients: strawberries, whipped cream, and sugar.
  • Make it KETO - whipped cream is keto but use a sugar-free sweetener instead of granulated sugar such as stevia erythritol blend or similar (can be found in most of the stores).
  • Instead of strawberries - you can use blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or simply use a berry mix. Frozen berries are fine.
