This Fluffy Berry Mousse Recipe is perfect for any occasion where you want a naturally pink dessert. Because this dessert calls for fresh berries, it’s a great option for summer. We love berry picking at our local pick your own berry farm. I always make sure to keep some on hand to use in this dessert.

Fluffy Berry Mousse Recipe Three Layer Dessert

Fluffy Berry Mousse Recipe

There are a few different ways you can prepare this recipe depending on how much time you have and how low carb you want it to be. My husband loves sweets so when I make this for him, I do a brownie or chocolate cake for the first layer, then whipped cream or whipped cream/cheese mix for the second layer and this fluffy berry mousse recipe for the top layer. When it’s just me, I create just the berry mousse and eat it out of a bowl with some fresh berries to dip.

The three-layer dessert recipe makes a gorgeous presentation for family holidays. But, it’s much less friendly on my waistline. You can make the whole three layers or simply the berry mousse on top.

Fluffy berry mousse recipe

Don’t worry, if you don’t have fresh strawberries, you can easily do this with raspberries. If you don’t want your berry mousse to be pink, you can try blueberries or blackberries and opt for purple instead. This recipe calls for canned cranberry sauce but when I have extra time, I always make my homemade cranberry sauce instead. It just tastes so much better.

This is such a pretty dessert that I really recommend displaying it on a cake stand if you make all three layers. You may be tempted to save time and use frozen topping for the second layer, but please make real whipped cream from heavy whipping cream.  I make it all the time with my electric beater and it tastes absolutely amazing.
