Great recipe for parfaits with mousse and mixed berry whipping cream.
Servings: 2 huge parfaits or 4 small
Ingredients
For the Mixed Berry Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mixed frozen berries OR 1 tablespoon Summer Berry Fruit Dip Mix
For the Mousse Portion:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 package of chocolate mousse you could make your own, I cheated
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups Frozen Mixed Berries thawed and divided
Instructions
For the Mixed Berry Whipped Cream:
  1. In a stand mixer, or hand mixer, whisk the heavy cream on low till it stops splashing around, takes about a minute or so.
  2. Then turn it up to high gradually and let it whip until fluffy.
  3. Set aside a little bit of plain whipping cream for garnish if desired.
  4. Add either berries or fruit dip mix. Fold in by hand or whip in mixer on low until just incorporated.
  5. Transfer to a piping bag. You can also spoon in it but it will be messier.
For the Mousse Portion:
  1. Add the heavy cream and mousse mix together. Whip until light and fluffy.
  2. Transfer to a piping bag.
Putting it together:
  1. Pipe in half the mousse into each glass.
  2. Add 1/2 of the berries.
  3. Add 1/2 the mixed berry whipping cream.
  4. Pipe in remaining mousse.
  5. Add another 1/3 of the berries.
  6. Pipe in the remaining mixed berry whipping cream.
  7. Top with plain whipping cream if desired.
  8. Top with the rest of the fruit.
  9. Pop them in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  10. Serve with a big old berry smile!
Recipe Notes

I bought a jar of Victorian Epicure Summer Berry Fruit Dip Mix at a Farmers Market and just love the stuff. I've also done these parfaits with mixed berries from the freezer. Either works beautifully.
