We really enjoyed this fresh, light and creamy dessert! Only to save calories as well as carbs, I skipped the crust entirely, which I'm sure, given the rest of the recipe, is delicious. But Hubs and I DO like our desserts on a regular basis so I try to be careful on occasion where I can. I used frozen, thawed strawberries and Splenda instead of sugar. This was a delicious, nutritious and guilt-free strawberry mousse!
I was not impressed by this. It had the taste and texture of freeze dried strawberry ice cream. I would not make it again.
I got a lot of compliments on this recipe. The recipe is confusing as written because it doesn't indicate whether you're supposed to use the white sugar or the brown sugar at particular points in the recipe. So when I made it, I used white sugar both times and 2/3 a cup both times. I used thawed frozen strawberries and added some of the leftover juice to the strawberry mixture and I suppose this is why my strawberry mixture didn't expand as much as other people's seemed to. I had to add some cream of tartar to help stabilize and give my strawberry mixture some volume. I also used almonds instead of walnuts because I'm not a walnut fan and almonds seemed to go better with it. Next time I make this, I would double the crumb mixture to make a more substantial crust in the bottom of the pan. The crumbs sprinkled over top were nice and crispy despite the lack of baking them.
I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 baking dish. This is very easy and very tasty. I used lime juice as I had fresh-squeezed juice left from another recipe. I also baked the extra crumbs in a separate baking dish for a crunchier topping. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Everyone really enjoyed this! It is very easy and fun to make and you end up with a refreshing, light, pretty dessert. I used my Kitchen Aid and at the 9 minute mark, it was almost coming over the top of the bowl. I was a little worried that it wasn't going to fit in the pan. Once the whipped cream is folded in, it is the perfect amount. It may be a little difficult to cut immediately out of the freezer. I decided to let it sit for about 10 min on the counter and it was perfect for us. This will be a repeat here. Thanks for sharing!
I have been making this recipes for years and it is a true family favorite! I've also tried it with raspberries, and it is delicious.
I took this for a potluck at work. Everyone loved it. My only complaint is that it MUST be kept very cold otherwise it turns runny...perhaps a touch of unflavored gelatin might help? Very light and refreshing. I used almonds instead of walnuts, just a personal preference. I was a little disappointed that the crust did stick to the pan despite the use of Pam. Will most likely make this again but with some modifications.
This recipe has been in my family for generations and over the years the name was changed to strawberry yummy because it is so yummy!! If you are looking for something light and refreshing this is it!!! The only thing that I differ from the recipe is, whether I and using frozen berries or not I always use 2/3 cup sugar and 2 cups berries. If using frozen, they must be thawed!
