Strawberry Breakfast Mousse Creme Recipe

  • Serves: 4; 1/2 cup per serving


1 cup quartered strawberries
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons all-fruit strawberry spread
3/4 cup fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed in refrigerator
4 fresh mint springs (optional)

Cooking Instructions

In a blender, process the strawberries, ricotta, yogurt, and strawberry spread for 20 to 30 seconds, or until smooth, stirring halfway through.

Pour into a medium bowl. Gently fold in the whipped topping. Spoon into custard cups or small bowls. Garnish with the mint.

Cook's Tip

No more skipping breakfast! This breakfast treat, even creamier than the typical mousse, is a fabulously cool way to begin the day. You can even make it up to 24 hours in advance.

This strawberry mousse is also delicious spooned over fresh berries, such as blueberries. A serving would be a half-cup fresh berries and 2 tablespoons mousse.
