Peach Mousse

This smooth, creamy dessert is a light and refreshing finish for a special meal. Our children and grandchildren think it's yummy! A garnish of peach slices or other fresh fruit really dresses up the individual servings. -Launa Shoemaker, Landrum, South Carolina

    Wonderful. Reminds me of orange cream popsicles! Used home canned sugar free peaches, drained completely. Making again, changing to frozen mixed berries and rasberry sugar free jello. Will skip the honey and the almond extract. Want to try different friut and jello combinations! keeper for sure! Great in the summer heat!

    This is yummy! It's very light and versatile. I've served it in a pie crust with some fresh peaches. I've served it in a crepe topped with raspberry sauce, sort of like a peach mousse melba, LOL! I've served it in a bowl with fresh peaches on top and drizzled with a little chocolate. It always maintained its light texture and the peach flavor stood up to the other flavors nicely.

    How much whipped cream/topping is the correct amount?
