It’s strawberry season. This made me so ridiculously excited that I’ve spent the last few nights playing with tons of ideas of what I should make instead of actually sleeping. If you have anything in mind, I’d be happy to hear!
Fresh gorgeous local strawberries are now available and this makes me unbelievably happy. Better yet, my own backyard strawberry plants are finally producing and I can walk out of my house and pick half a pint every morning.
Have you ever made strawberry mousse?
It’s probably one of the most decadent treats ever created, and I made it a lot healthier by keeping the ingredients simple and sugar-free! And I add cream cheese on this recipe because it gives a fresher taste. I also add vanilla extract to intensify the aroma of the strawberries and result in a much richer flavor.

How to bloom gelatin
The process of blooming the gelatin softens it and helps it melt and dissolve smoothly. This process also helps prevent gelatin clumps in the recipe.
To bloom gelatin, simply put some water (or other liquid) in a saucepan or dish, then sprinkle the gelatin on top. Try to make the layer of gelatin even so that it absorbs the liquid evenly.
Microwave the gelatin for about 30 seconds.
