We were on a mission.
This past weekend Hubby, the girls, my Pops and I set off to Walmart.
I had the #EqualCanada opportunity to shop for Equal, a sugar alternative and what better time to get a sweetener than when I owed my sister dessert?
We went to the sweetener aisle and searched high and low for the yellow canister of Equal, which is supposed to be on Rollback for $7.97.
To no avail.
Alas, we attempted to search for it at the Pharmacy and no luck either, just as we were putting the blue jar of Equal into our cart, we decided to take a stroll and lo and behold, a few aisles down we found it!
Visit me over on Google+ to see our whole adventure, here!
We had a delicious lunch and then finished it off with a nice, refreshing dessert. A healthy one at that.
I was inspired by Equal’s Lemon Blueberry Mousse and I changed it up a little. I used natural and organic products and of course the Equal. As many of you know, I use another sugar alternative but, my sister prefers the Equal.
Organic & Natural Strawberry Delight Mousse:
- 8-10 organic strawberries.
- 1/4 cup of Heavy Organic Cream.
- 1/3 cup of Equal.
- 1 cup of natural Vanilla Greek Yogurt.
- 1/2 cup of whipped topping (optional)
- Mixing bowl.
- Hand blender.
- Dessert cups.
Note: This recipe is almost entirely natural and organic but, not 100%.
Step 1: Get Ready!
Measure your ingredients, what was awesome about Equal was the canister was the accessibility and the ease of easily scooping and measuring what I needed. You will need 1/3 cup of Equal.
Did you know that you can cut about 38% of calories by using Equal as a sugar substitute in all your recipes?
Step 2: Pick your strawberries!
After you’ve gathered your ingredients to perfect measure, pick out the strawberries you will use for your garnishes!
I decided to use the strawberries to decorate the Vanilla Strawberry Delight Mousse, you can get creative with them.
Step 3: Mix It Up!
This is where most of the work is done, you mix the natural Vanilla Greek Yogurt into a bowl, add 1/3 cup of Equal and 1/4 cup of heavy organic cream.
Using a hand blender, mix all the ingredients together until you reach desired fluffiness. I thoroughly mixed it and left it creamy.
I let it sit while I moved on to the next step.
Step 4: Cut the strawberries!
You can cut the strawberries thin so you can fold them into the mixture or you can cut them into dices. This is the option I opted for and I chose to layer them instead. I diced them finely and into small little cubes. Which is especially easier for little ones to chew.
Step 5: Fold them in or Layer them!
Choose your favorite dessert cups, add a dollop of the Strawberry Vanilla Delight mixture, add a layer of strawberries and repeat.
Step 6: Top it off & Enjoy!
I used the Heavy Organic Cream to make my whipped topping. You simply take a 1 cup of the organic cream, add your desired sweetener and mix with a hand blender until fluffy. I used a piping bag and tip to adorn the top of the dessert cups and added my strawberry garnishes.
I think she likes it!
Oh and my sister wants me to make it again next week!
It was so easy, quick and both my Hubby and eldest helped me make it!
Well, having a delicious dessert doesn’t have to threaten your waistline, this is a great recipe for all my Fit & Firm buddies and anyone who wants a creamy, fresh dessert!
