Spring has sprung in southern Louisiana!! The azalea bushes have flowers on them and there is a thick coat of pollen on everything in sight. When the weather begins warming up I am ready for fruit and no bake desserts. My favorite is strawberry anything, I love some strawberries. I came up with this Strawberry Mousse Pie last year for our Easter gathering at work by using items I had on hand. It was a huge hit and now it’s one of my favorite pies. Believe me, bring this pie to any gathering and it will be gone in no time.
Let me start off by saying this is my personal opinion and I am not being paid to say any of this . I love the Jell-O Simply Good product line! This recipe calls for the strawberry and it really packs a punch of flavor and makes this mousse so yummy. I have tried several of their flavors and everything I have tried is fabulous. They make a chocolate caramel pudding that I make a pie with also that is fabulous!
This is a simple no bake dessert and only requires a few ingredients
Start by adding the jello packet to a small bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Stir until dissolved and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl add the heavy whipping cream for the pie filling to a bowl and beat until it firms up and has stiff peaks.
Pour dissolved Jello into the whipped cream
Continue to beat the filling until it is firm and has stiff peaks
Spread the strawberry glaze into the bottom of the graham cracker crust and cover that with sliced strawberries
Spread the whipped strawberry mousse over the strawberries and glaze , then smooth it out
Cover and chill for at least 4 hours , I usually chill over night.
Once pie is chilled prepare whipped topping . Place all of the ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl
Beat until stiff peaks form
Either spread the whipping cream on top or pipe it on they way you want
Garnish with strawberries
