Raspberry Mousse

Raspberry Mousse

Raspberry Mousse

This is a variation on Linda Genaw’s Cheesecake Pudding recipe.  I have been in love with her vanilla version for years now.  But it’s absolutely yummy with raspberries and a splash of rum. :)  This recipe is not suitable for Atkins Induction.  But you can enjoy it after the initial 2 week period. 🙂

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 c. sour cream (8 oz.)

Sweetener of choice to equal 3/4 c. sugar.  If you use Splenda or sweetener with carbs, you will have to add those carbs in below.

1 tsp. vanilla

2 c. frozen raspberries (thawed)

1 c. whipping cream, whipped until thick

1 T. rum (optional)

DIRECTIONS:  In a medium bowl, whip the cream until thick and set aside.  Next, on a paper plate, soften cream cheese in your microwave.  Blend/process or stir the cream cheese with the sour cream.  Add sweetener, rum and vanilla. Add berries and pulse 2-3 times only.  Using a rubber spatula, scrape mixture into the bowl of whipped cream.  Fold the two together gently until well blended.  Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup or spoon, dip the mousse evenly into 10 half-cup ramekins or pretty serving dishes and chill 1 hour or longer.

  1. I was craving creamy and sweet, and this hit the spot! I used frozen strawberries instead, thawed first, but followed everything else. I omitted the rum, too. Your recipes are very creative, thanks for sharing and making low carb that much easier to stick to, even on those days when cravings hit.


    • I’m just tickled pink you tried it so quickly and LIKED it, g_inTX. I try to keep them simple yet tasty. Good food was meant to be shared. You can bet that if it’s on my blog, it’s pretty tasty. My basic guideline for passing muster is all 3 of us have to like something: me, the hubs and Button (nicknamed Buttoni) my goofball 12# rat terrier and namesake of this website. She’s the taster that’s a pushover; the hubs is not as easy to please.😉
