The simplest Strawberry Ricotta Mousse With Blackberry Topping. So light and refreshing using six ingredients, ricotta cheese, fresh strawberries, blackberries, whipping cream, tapioca flour and a splash of pure maple syrup.

The mousse is egg-free, there is no cooking involved, and it’s practically effortless. The topping is made with fresh blackberries that are briefly cooked until they become a thick, rich blackberry sauce.

When fresh berries are in season, this strawberry ricotta mousse with blackberry topping makes for the simplest tasty dessert. This French-style gluten-free dessert is light, not too sweet and creamy. 

If you like berry desserts you will enjoy the Chocolate Blackberry Pie or the Strawberry Tiramisu.

I like to add this strawberry ricotta mousse to my list of summer desserts. The mousse is chilled making it refreshing and satisfying, especially when hot weather hits.

But don’t think this strawberry ricotta mousse is only a summer dessert. This French-style dessert is a delicious treat any time of year.

If you are looking for an easy gluten-free dessert or just need a quick creamy dessert, this mousse recipe is for you.

To make this quick mousse recipe, you will need a food processor. To start, add the strawberries to a food processor and process them until smooth.

Next, add the ricotta cheese to the strawberries and whip it up until light and creamy.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream. Fold the whipped cream into the strawberry mixture and spoon into serving bowls. Then chill…done!

Using a small saucepan, whisk water with tapioca flour. Add the blackberries and a splash of maple syrup. Bring to a boil and cook for about 2 – 3 minutes until the sauce thickens. Transfer the sauce into a blender and blend until smooth.

Spoon the blackberry sauce over the mousse and chill.
