Strawberry Mousse Pie

This is a quick and creamy, no-bake mousse pie. I made this using a 7 inch round cake pan with a removable base. You may use a pie plate or springform pan. It lasted 4 dessert servings for us. If you’re a family of 4, then you may have it twice. What I like about this pie is the ease involed in putting it together. NO BAKE. Plus it takes about half an hour or so to prepare the whole recipe. You can use other berries too. It’s absolutely your preference. It’s made with whipping cream…so I feel less guilty devouring this instead of a cheesecake made with cream cheese or mascarpone. I didn’t add eggs…less calories and makes it suitable for vegetarians.

The taste of the final product depends on the chocolate used. Hence, it is essential to use a good quality chocolate to make gorgeous ganache.
