Simple strawberry mousse ready in only 5 minutes using three whole food ingredients for a healthy and decadent dessert experience.

Whipped desserts such as this healthy chocolate mousse are some of the fastest and easiest to make.

Despite the simplicity, mousse is also elegant and universally delights both family and guests who may stop by for dinner.

The sweetness of the fresh (or frozen) strawberries allows for minimal use of a whole food sweetener.

If you prefer extra firm mousse with a few grams of protein, blend in optional whipped egg whites. They should always be from freshly cracked eggs. Do not use liquid egg whites or egg beaters from the store.

This is a great after school snack for kids! Healthy mousse made with strawberries is loaded with nourishing fats which steady the blood sugar and mood after a long day in the classroom!

It’s also a good source of whole food Vitamin C, which is easier to absorb and better for the body than synthetic (usually GMO sourced) ascorbic acid supplements.
