Strawberry Pie Mousse Recipe

To cut calories from a strawberry pie recipe, I lightened up the filling and served it in dessert dishes instead of a pie crust. With its pretty color and fruity flavor, it's and elegant dessert without much fuss. —Waydella Hart of Parsons, Kansas

"I've made this recipe many times using blueberries, as well as strawberries. Not only do we enjoy the mousse by itself, but it also makes a wonderful filling for cake rolls and mini cream puffs. For a delicious variation, I substitute regular cheesecake pudding or french vanilla pudding for the sugar-free vanilla."

"I have made this several times, and my family loves it. I omit the sugar entirely--we find it too sweet otherwise. I usually don't bother straining the seeds so that it is even quicker to make. I have made it using sugar-free pudding (as directed) and using regular instant pudding instead, and it tastes great both ways."

"I too was wondering if the 1 oz was correct. The smallest box of Jello pudding I could find was 3.4 oz. which is a 4 serving size. Just curious if others have found 1 oz boxes in the store or did they buy the 3.4oz then weight out a 1 oz portion?"

"FYI inconsistency - Strawberry Mousse - top says "12 servings" - bottom says yields 8 servings. No big deal - the recipe is just great for any number"

"was thinking you could use other berries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries etc. but you would have to increase cups to one half to a whole for recipe. also, why not use peaches too. just thinking of the different fruits that could be used."
