Strawberry Mousse & Lime Jello Dessert Cups

Oh my goodness, our guests RAVED about these easy strawberry mousse dessert cups! With their cute watermelon look, they’re perfect for any summer party, pot luck or picnic. They would also be a great addition to a birthday party or baby shower.
I made these for my sister’s baby shower and everyone loved them so much I made them again for Father’s Day! The best part is that they are SO EASY. They are no-bake, so they come together quickly.

For this simple strawberry mousse recipe, you actually use real strawberries, which adds a ton of flavor. Basically, you make lime jello for the bottom or the watermelon rind. On top you add the no-bake strawberry mousse. It is an easy but incredibly good recipe!
But of course, no watermelon dessert is complete without seeds! So we added chocolate chips to the top.
  • 1 – 3 oz package lime jello
  • 2 – 3 oz. pkg Strawberry Jello
  • 1 c. cold water
  • 1 – 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
  • 2 c. rough cut, cleaned strawberries
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. Cool Whip
  • 1/2 c. Chocolate Chips

  1. STEP 1: Prepare lime jello according to package directions. Set out plastic cups and pour jello into the bottom of each cup to desired height. You may have some left over. Let cool and set for two hours in fridge.
  2. STEP 2: Once the lime jello has set, dissolve contents of strawberry jello with 1 cup boiling water. Then add jello mixture, cold water, vanilla, strawberries and cream cheese to a blender. Mix well until all ingredients are blended smooth. Transfer to a bowl and gently fold in cool whip (or generic whipped topping…that’s what we used!) until mixed. Next, pour into your dessert cups. Let set an additional two hours in the fridge.
  3. STEP 3: Place chocolate chips on top to look like watermelon seeds.
  4. STEP 4: Wow your guests with this fun and refreshing treat, perfect on a hot summer day!
