Recipe by Chef John
"That you can make this lovely, sweet treat without turning on the oven is probably enough of a reason to give this serious consideration. Besides the taste and light mousse-like texture, I think your guests will enjoy the iconic stars and stripes design provided by the fresh blueberries and strawberries. USA! USA! USA!"

1 1/2 cups

Delicious! Nice flavor, chef John's recipes never let me down :) light and delicious. I used real vanilla extract not sure if imitation would of worked. Also used regular Philadelphia cream cheese as I couldn't find any mascarpone... Came
I just used two packages of cream cheese and refrigerated it over night, then placed fruit right before eating. I used imitation vanilla and it was fine, I think the fresh lemon juice made a big difference in the overall flavor. YUMmmm. Festive and perfect for a hot 4th of July day!
I didn't have marscapone and ended up using regular cream cheese. Still a very good recipe. I loved it and I usually don't like cheesecake.
