 I’m all about unconventional so I’m always thinking about how to put a twist on the classic stuffed strawberry and this is what I came  up with.  I made a lemon mousse to stuff cookie cups with a few months ago and started brainstorming new ways to use lemon mousse because I thought it was so tasty, not to mention a pretty color, as well.  Now is the time to make those strawberry recipes while they are relatively cheap during the summer.  Farmers’ markets, anyone?

Note:  Since strawberries aren’t exactly flat, to make them stand up you just slice a bit off the narrow tip to create a stable base.  I didn’t think of this until it was too late.  DUH!

Aren’t these just gorgeous?  They would be a nice addition to your summer cook outs.  Just keep them cool until the last minute so they don’t get all melty on you.  Say it with me now …. yummmmmmmmmm!

Lemon Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

Simple stuffed strawberries recipe perfect for any occasion: shower, picnic, or party. The lemon mousse turns plain strawberries into a decadent dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1.5-2 lbs. of strawberries, cored from the bottom leaving the stems (I used a paring knife to hollow them out)
  • 1 cup COLD heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 package Jello Instant Lemon Pudding Mix
  • 1/2 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 4 oz (1/2 cup) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup very cold water
  • Yellow food dye (optional, but makes mousse a pretty yellow)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream and vanilla on high with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Place in fridge.
  2. In another large bowl, whisk together pudding mix, sweetened condensed milk, water, and lemon zest until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Place in fridge for 5 minutes to set up completely. It should be thick.
  4. Fold whipped cream into pudding just until evenly distributed.
  5. Stir in yellow food dye (I used quite a bit to get the rich yellow color I wanted).
  6. Cover and place in fridge until you're ready to fill strawberries.
  7. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a star tip with lemon mousse or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe mousse into each cored strawberry. Fill strawberries just before serving.
