Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake Mousse

Berry Cheesecake MousseWith our Red, White and Blue holidays just around the corner, it is time to make some fun desserts! There are lots of Pins of flag cakes, but some of us don’t have time to make a whole cake! Here is your solution. This is simple and scrumptious; and you can make the cheesecake mousse ahead of time if necessary!

Every time I ask my friend Alli what I can bring, she looks at me and says, “You know! That delicious layered dessert!” I pack up the berries and mousse separately and easily assemble them right before serving. Many times I don’t bother with piping the mousse into the dishes (although this is super easy to do with a large Ziploc® bag) and just scoop the deliciousness into the cups.Berry Cheesecake Mousse Try this! I promise it will be one of your favorite desserts!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, divided
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries

Instructions

  1. Beat the cream with a mixer. When you notice it starting to thicken, start adding ¼ cup of the powdered sugar and continue to beat until combined and the cream is thick enough to notice soft peaks. Don't beat it so much that it starts looking clumpy.
  2. In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese until it is soft and smooth.
  3. Add to the cream cheese the remaining powdered sugar, the vanilla and the milk. Beat these ingredients until they are combined.
  4. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the whipped cream mixture into the cream cheese mixture. 
  5. Layer the mousse and the fruit you are using in your glass and Enjoy!
