Strawberry Mousse Parfait

This luxuriously smooth mousse is arranged into visually appealing strawberry and whipped cream layers that add charm to a dessert favorite.


12 servings


2 (10 ounce) packages frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed,
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/8 teaspoon red food coloring, optional
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped


Place strawberries in a food processor; cover and process until pureed. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and strawberries until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a large bowl; refrigerate until chilled.

Set aside 1/2 cup strawberry mixture. Add the condensed milk, orange juice and food coloring if desired to the remaining mixture; stir until blended. Fold in whipped cream.

Spoon 1/4 cup cream mixture into each of 12 parfait dishes or cocktail glasses. Layer each with 4 teaspoons of reserved strawberry mixture and 1/4 cup cream mixture. Refrigerate until serving.
