No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse

by Olivia


Easy to make no-bake cheesecake mousse overflowing with the fresh flavor of ruby red strawberries. It’s luscious, soft and fluffy like a sweet cloud.

The base of it is cream cheese with a touch of sour cream, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest. Homemade whipped cream is folded in to give it lightness.

It’s best very well chilled and makes a lovely, refreshing dessert for a warm night.


Especially when you can’t bake. Remember my broken stove? The super’s getting me a new one. Well, not a brand new one just another one. I miss baking so much I could almost scream. It’s been weeks and weeks and weeks.

Until then I’ll be stuffing my face with cheesecake mousse.
