Strawberries n' Cream Mousse

Okay this is something I made up because I could never find a decent strawberry mousse filling....and I hate using preserves! I always make my mousse the jello pudding and heavy whipping cream way....and this twist make it taste like strawberry milk! It is soooo yummy and I get requests for it all the time!!! AND IT IS SUPER EASY!!!

Strawberries n' Cream Mousse


  • 1 large pkg of Instant Vanilla Jello Pudding 1 Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream 2-3 tablespoons of Strawberry Jello Gelatin Powder (you can add more or less depending on how much strawberry taste you want!)


  1. Mix Heavy whipping cream on med-high. Slowly add all of the contents of the Instant Vanilla pudding and strawberry gelatin powder to whipping cream until it reaches a thick mousse and all of the gelatin and pudding mix is dissolved
  2. Then Refridgerate! I use this in cupcake and cake fillings!

This sounds great! I have been looking for a great filling recipe without having to use preserves. Thanks! I will be trying this soon!
I've used this & love it!!!! It's so simple, yummy, and you can add fruit, and other things to it!!!! Just love it!!!!!!
I am new at this, just started today and saw this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. Thank-you
Turned out great. Very quick and easy. Thanks for sharing!
Im glad it worked out for you guys :)
I am using this recipe for a weeding cake, coupled with fresh strawberries. This is AMAZING!!! thanks for sharing.
This is FABULOUS. I made this for my daughters first birthday cake and put it in between strawberry cake. Everyone LOVED it. It taste like a milkshake. The recipe to me needed the 3T of jello mix to make it taste like strawberry. It also filled one 8in, 6in, and 4in with probably enough left over for another 6 inch cake.
This sounds delicious! I am going to try this filling in white chocolate cupcakes. Makes me think of white chocolate dipped strawberries. Yummy! Thanks so much for sharing!
I'm thinking about using this as a filling for Vanilla Cake I'm makeing for my daoughter's b-day. I've tried using jello mix in frostings before, and I can always feel the grit from it. Can you taste the jello power/mix grit in this recipe?
how long can this stay good in the refrigerator?
I made this for a 4yr old birthday cake with a butter cake and it was a BIG hit!!! Thanks for the recipe!
Will this fill a 1/2 sheet cake?
anyone try using white chocolate pudding mix instead of vanilla?? mmmm
Do you use the vanilla pudding package for 4 1/2 or 6 person serving? I'm looking forward to trying this recipe! Thanks for any help you can provide!
Do you use a hand held mixer or a free standing mixer?
I'm new to making cakes my question is, how do you know how long the filling is good for?
This is a simply great recipe. I love how easy it is and yet very yummy. I also wanted to have real strawberries in it, so I used some whole frozen strawberries. I set 1 cup of berries out for about 10 minutes to defrost slightly, then put them in my food processor and chopped till they were almost pureed. Then I just mixed them into the mousse, perfect!
I have used this recipe several times and everyone loves it. My only question is how long can it be left out before it starts to break down. I am doing a cake that will not be refrigerated for most of the day. Do you have any suggestions for a cake filling that does not have to be refrigerated.
Could you use this recipe w/rasberry jello? Is the filling thick enough that it doesn't seep out between the layers?
How long can this recipe be out of the refrigerator before something happens to it. I need to do a cake that will be out for 3 or so hours? Thanks Sue
