Hello again, and happy spring! I have the perfect spring recipe to share with you today. This strawberry cheesecake mousse is so light and fresh and delicious! One of my very favorite things about spring and summer is all the lovely and flavorful fresh fruit that is available. Strawberries are a definite favorite of mine, and I love to use them any way I can in cooking.
This cheesecake mousse is a perfect way to use fresh strawberries. The strawberries don’t get cooked at all, so they keep their deliciously sweet and refreshing flavor. The cream cheese adds a nice richness and texture to the mousse as well. And really, it doesn’t get much better than strawberries and cream cheese in the same dessert, right?
I also really like that this dessert is so quick to make! It’s the perfect recipe to have in your back pocket for when you have unexpected guests or when you just have a craving for something delicious. I made the crust in just a few minutes, popped it in the oven, and whipped up the rest while the crust was baking. Easy peasy!

This is a new favorite dessert at our house! I shared a cup with my three year old, and I think she let me eat maybe one bite out of four. My husband, who is a diehard cheesecake fan, couldn’t get enough of it either! If you love strawberries as much as my family does, you have to try this!
