Strawberry “Shortcake” Mousse Cups

This recipe was one that fooled me.  It seems too easy, too simple in its ingredients to be anything that would “wow” you.  I didn’t have high expectations, I simply thought it would be ok.

Well.  This dessert impressed me a whole heck of a lot.

It is so easy, so simple, so perfect for summer… but SO GOOD!

The only problem I have with this recipe is that it only makes four.  So next time, I will double it!

Or triple, you know, for the sake of science.

I think you could also easily substitute Cool Whip for the from-scratch whipped cream in the recipe if you happened to be in a hurry.

Just make sure when you sit down to eat one that you have all the time in the world and can savor each amazing bite!

    Should be: “It seems too easy, too simple in its ingredients to be anything that would “wow” you. “

    You’re kidding me, that is the first time I buy coconut milk and I have all the ingredients, gotta try it.
    Thanks for the divine dessert.

    Totally going to try this recipe! Just a quick question. How much of Cool Whip would I need for this recipe? (Always the one for shortcuts! )
