A colorful and patriotic dessert made with fresh berries and a smooth and creamy cheesecake mousse!
I was experimenting with different fun and colorful desserts to serve on Memorial Day or July 4th and came up with these dreamy little desserts! Let me just start by saying the cheesecake mousse is great all on it’s own, yeah it’s THAT good!
But of course, we need the red and the blue to pay homage to our national flag, so enter strawberries and blueberries! You could also use raspberries if you’d like, I just prefer strawberries in this dessert.
These are super fun to serve at a party, barbecue, or take with you to a potluck. I made 4 different styles, shown below, to give you some ideas on how to present them to your guests. The truth is, they will look great in just about any glass or cup you have!
This is also a great make ahead Low Carb party dessert! You can prepare these the night before and cover with plastic wrap. I tested this out and they keep in the fridge perfectly!
How to Make Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Berry Cups
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese (see notes)
1/2 cup Swerve confectioners
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whip the heavy cream in a bowl to soft peaks.
In a separate bowl, add the cream cheese and whip using a hand mixer.
Mix in the mascarpone, swerve confectioners and vanilla extract. Then mix in the whip cream and blend until smooth and creamy.
Add a layer of chopped strawberries to the bottom of a dessert glass. Pipe or dollop the cheesecake mousse over the strawberries, then add some blueberries over the top.
I’ve prepared them in several different ways to give you some ideas…
I made a small dessert cup, using the strawberries to form a star and one blueberry in the center.
Another way you can serve this is by piping the cheesecake mousse over the top of a cut strawberry. Add a blueberry on top and they make adorable mini dessert bites that you can serve on a platter to your guests!
I also used these mini trifle dessert glasses, which look great!
But I think my absolutely favorite way to serve this is in a martini glass! Who wouldn’t want to eat this!?
Notes: I like using a little mascarpone in this because it adds a great creaminess, without a strong flavor or extra carbs. If you don’t have mascarpone cheese, you can sub with more cream cheese.
