Easy Cheesecake Mousse with Fresh Fruit
Sometimes for dessert it is nice to get away from the heavy dense cakes and frosted cupcakes and you just crave something with a silky smooth texture. Many mousse and custards involve tedious steps that you don't want to have to deal with and you just want something that can be thrown together in five minutes. This recipe is perfect for that. It involves three main ingredients, and then can be decorated and topped with whatever else you are craving at the moment.
8 oz. Cool Whip, Lite
1 pkg. Jell-O Cheesecake Pudding, Sugar and Fat Free
2 c. milk, 1%
Mix the pudding and milk together according to packages until there are no lumps left. Let refrigerate for at least five minutes so that the pudding can set. Add half of the Cool Whip and gently fold in with a spatula. Add the remaining half and continue to gently fold until everything is well incorporated. And there you have it, you are done with the cheesecake mousse!
We had these for dessert at my moms house, and she had some white and milk chocolate dessert cups. I spooned about 1/4 cup of the mousse into each chocolate cup and then topped with raspberries, blueberries and white chocolate crisp pearls!
