Welcome to one of the most popular recipes on my site right now! I just wanted to say hello and invite you to look around my blog, check out some recipes, and let me know what you think :-). If you love this recipe, please share with your friends so they can enjoy it too.

When trying to come up with a dessert recipe that my family will love, I knew I wanted to create something different than my usual chocolate laden dessert. Something I don’t make very often….a fruity dessert recipe full of flavor.

A quick trip to the grocery store and I saw so many fresh raspberries. What would we do if these raspberries were not available all year round? We are definitely lucky here in the U.S. Raspberries were on sale with a buy one carton, get one free sale at our local Nob Hill so that made my decision a lot easier :-).

This creamy mousse recipe with fresh raspberries is quick and easy to put together.

I used 1 cup of fresh raspberries and but it didn’t make my dessert quite as pink as I had hoped. Feel free to add a few drops of beet juice or food coloring if you would like a more vibrant color to this dessert. You can even use different fresh fruit like strawberries or blackberries!

What are some of your favorite fresh raspberry recipes?

  15. I’m allergic to dairy. Would this work with coconut cream?

    • Hi Nancy, Up until a couple of weeks ago, I would have said I don’t know. My neighbor is also dairy free and she found this incredible whipped cream maker that works really well with coconut cream. This leads me to believe it is totally possible to use coconut cream. I hope this helps.

  16. Hi! By heavy cream do you mean whipping cream or table cream? Can’t wait to make these for a bridal shower.


    • Hi Carly, Thanks for stopping by. I do mean whipping cream, as you will need to whip it into fluff to add to the mousse. I hope your guests enjoy the mousse πŸ™‚

  17. Where did you add the lemon juice ?

  18. This is an elegant dessert. So light and delicious. This is my kind of dessert.

  19. Your Raspberry Mousse recipe sounds so easy and it looks delicious. It’s a wonderful dessert for any time of the year, but I certainly can see how it would be a special Valentine’s Day treat.

  20. This is such a beautiful dessert and I am hoping to make it for a dessert table in a month. About how many servings would this make if piped into 6 oz party cups (kind of like your picture)?

  21. This looks delicious. I tried only chocolate flavor. I have to try this too!

  22. Could this be used for cake filling layers?

  23. Hi Sandi
    How much person is this recipes?

  24. Hello, I followed your recipe but my mousse came out grainy and after refrigerating it, the bottom had a layer of gelatin… Do you know what I did wrong?

    • Hi Monica,

      I am happy to help you. Did you use a Vitamix to really puree the raspberries to liquefy? If you could please let me know the steps you have taken, and the ingredients you used, I will try to help. I have made this numerous times, as have many readers and I haven’t heard of any troubles. Thank you.

      • Hi sandi,

        I used a hand pusler for the raspberrys then used a strainer to take out any excess seeds.
        I did use lemon concentrate rather than real lemon juice as I didn’t have any in my fridge. Could it be this that altered the outcome? The grainy-ness is almost like mixing lemon juice with milk. Other than the lemon, I followed your steps exactly.

        Thanks for your help as it tastes good! It’s just the texture πŸ™‚

  25. I could lick this raspberry mousse all day long. Its super attractive and tempting.
