You must try this Strawberry Banana Mousse recipe, yet if the combo isn’t your personal favourite, perhaps you’d rather a Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Mousse! That’s another that doesn’t last long in our house!

Sometimes I avoid making new dessert recipes because the many ingredients that I’d have to buy, are pricy. Factor that in with every other expense that pops up during the summer months, and the realization comes that you need to save where you can.

Thus, my summertime shopping consists of smart choices where I can, so that I can splurge and really treat myself at, say, the farmers market that week.

The most cost effective desserts during the summer, can be made with Jello! Combining Jello and cool whip to make mousse is a great way to get in that dessert, and not break the budget.

Just like this Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Mousse, this dessert it’s so light, refreshing, and fruity – it screams summer.

Making ;Strawberry Banana Mousse doesn’t even need a trip to the grocer for myself, all of these ingredients I usually have on hand at all times. So, making this in the AM, and allowing it to set during the day while we’re out enjoying the day, is a simple way to guarantee dessert for when you return.
