You cannot let the summers pass you by without making some Ummazingly delicious No-Bake Mini strawberry mousse cups. No egg whites, just heavy whipping cream, and some sweetish strawberry pie filling were enough to make these creamy, strawberry-licious Mousse cups.
Guys these are so tasty. The creamy, velvety mousse-like texture that melts in your mouth the moment you take its first bite.
Welcome to the beautiful world of summer where the berries are at their best and the creative cook within us is brimming with excitement to make something out of it.
So, today I tried these No-Bake Mini strawberry mousse cups. Ananhhh! No beating egg whites, its just heavy whipping cream!
I know how making a perfect meringue can be so stressful for some of us. So, just to keep it easy and creamy I thought, let me try It with heavy whipping cream. And, I wasn’t wrong. The mini cups were so tasty.
A Little Story
My friends and I were chilling in the backyard enjoying late-night conversations and talking about various TV shows. It is when my friend told me about a recipe that she saw on TV and wanted to make it. It was a blueberry Mousse bar with mirror glaze topping. She saw it in some cooking show on NetFlix and she was deeply interested in making it at home.
That’s when I thought, wait a minute, If she can use blueberry pie filling to make blueberry mousse bars, I can always use strawberry pie filling to make strawberry mousse bars.
Somehow, while baking this, I thought, bars won’t look as cute as a cupcake. So, I changed my plan and poured my batter in the muffin tin lined with cupcake liners.
I was so much in love with the pale pink color that I seriously wanted to leave it like that. Then my brother told me, that it looks sorta empty on top. You should do some frosting.
I already had some whipped cream with me, I took my pink gel food color and turned my whipping cream into a beautiful pinkish hue. It looked so appetizing, so, girlish and so tasty.
A Little Overview on How to make these No-Bake Mini strawberry mousse cups?
A little gelatin helps the mousse set perfectly. Though it's not mandatory, I have seen that it set really fast with gelatin.
Next, we just sweeten the strawberry pie filling with some sugar. I have also added some desiccated coconut for that extra nuttiness, some lemon juice for that freshness and zestiness, and mixed all of them really well. My idea was to make the pie filling a little too sweet and a little zesty.
Oh! I almost forgot, I also added a little heavy whipping cream while making the pie filling, you know just to make it a little creamy and smooth. By this time my gelatin was ready, so I added that into it
Next just whip some heavy cream and fold it with your strawberry mix and voila! You are done. God, they taste so good!
So creamy and so zesty and just perfect summer dessert. Put one scoop of batter in a muffin tin with a cupcake liner, freeze them and when they are done.
And, the frosting:
To make the frosting keep some whipping cream aside and then, add just one drop of pink food color and use a piping bag to do the frosting. They will look so cute and so appetizing.
use your pink colored whipped cream to frost and that’s it you are done.
