Reviews for Strawberry Pie Mousse
"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 looked for a good strawberry mousse recipe for years, finally one I love!! I've made it several times already."
"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."
"My whole family loved it!"
"This is sugar FREE pudding. The boxes I buy are 1.34 oz for 4 servings."
"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?"
"Yes. Jello Sugar Free Instant Vanilla Pudding is 1 oz."
"FYI inconsistency - Strawberry Mousse - top says "12 servings" - bottom says yields 8 servings. No big deal - the recipe is just great for any number"
"Does the recipe really only use 1 ounce of pudding mix?"
"Let me know the answers also.I think that this looks great. Iwould use fat free cool whip too.Thanks Nweilnau@aol.com"
"Where does 3gr of fat com from for just the cool whip. or is it the puddiong. could use sugar free and fat free to mak it lighter."
"Would this serve 12 or 8? Both serving numbers are given on the recipe."
"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."
"i agree with tgbvmb that splenda instead of sugar will keep this lower in calories but will also help diabetics enjoy a great dessert too."
"To cut even more calories, use a calorie-free sweetener, such as Splenda, instead of the sugar."
