Red Berry Parfait/Mousse

This easy recipe was designed to use the leftovers from the Mini Watermelons I made, But it tastes soo good I am going to write a whole new recipe for this Red Berry Mousse/Parfait.
Can be made Sugar Free/Dairy Free/Gluten Free/Soy Free/Nut Free!

The ingredients are the same for both the Mousse and the Parfait, the only difference is the mousse is made by blending the ingredients together while the parfait is made by layering them.

  • 1 package Red Gelatin (Red Raspberry or Strawberry would be good, but it could also be made with whatever flavor gelatin you like) [I used Sugar Free Raspberry Royal Gelatin]
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 1 Cup Chopped Strawberries [I used sliced frozen strawberries that I chopped and let thaw]
  • 3/4 Cup Cold Water
  • Choice of frozen Whipped Topping slightly thawed [I used 100% Natural Truwhip]

  1. Put contents of gelatin package into a bowl or covered container. Pour boiling water over gelatin and mix until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  2. Pour mixture into your blender along with the strawberries and cold water, and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture back into bowl (you want it to be frothy!) and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 
  4. Stir/whip the mixture and place back in the refrigerator for another hour.
  5. Repeat step 4, then after that hour is up the mixture should be ready. You can also put it in the refrigerator overnight and just stir/whip it again when you are ready to make the parfait or mousse.
  6. To make the Parfait take a nice cup or dessert bowl and alternate layers of the gelatine with layers of the whipped topping. The topping should have a ice cream like consistency.
  7. To make the Mousse put a few scoops of the whipped topping into the bowl of gelatine and stir/whip to mix. Add more whipped topping if desired.
The Mousse should have a light and airy quality, while the whipped topping for the Parfait should have an ice cream like consistency

YUM! Which one will you choose?
