Organic & Natural Strawberry Delight Recipe.
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!

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!
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!
