Oh how I am LOVING my cranberries this fall season. They’re great for so much more than just cranberry relish. I wish I would have discovered the deliciousness of this berry years ago. Unfortunately though, my idea of cranberries growing up was that redish brown gel stuff in the can. To this day my grandmother serves that stuff with every meal per my grandpa’s request. No wonder I didn’t like them growing up!
So I must admit, I’ve only recently begun really experimenting with these yummy little treats. It feels like one recipe keeps leading to the next, which is a great thing because I have about 8 pounds of cranberries stockpiled in my freezer! So by the time this holiday season is over, you will have ZERO excuse not to try cooking these bad boys up in one way or another!
Yet again, this recipe hit me in the middle of the night. In my mind it was this creamy, fluffy, tart yet sweet dessert that would hit all of the right notes on my tongue. Thankfully, the reality of this mousse met my expectations completely. This Cranberry Mint Mousse is not a super sweet dessert, which is a nice departure from my usual cloyingly sweet dessert recipes (you know I love my sweets!). It’s got a great pop of freshness from the mint and lovely citrus aftertaste. I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as I did!
