Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Yippee! Or, maybe not. When you've been with your husband for 18 years, Valentine's Day seems like a novelty holiday. Jason and I haven't done the hearts and candy for each other since before we had kids. Once they came along though, we picked up on the tradition of celebrating as a family. Nothing fancy, mind you. The girls and I will maybe do a craft, Jason will bring the girls home a small box of chocolates, and I'll make dinner with love. Just kidding about that last part. They eat what I serve or they can find themselves fixing their own dinner. The dinner isn't really the star of the day, though. It's dessert that gets my family hopped up on the holiday. I try to find a new recipe every year to serve up, just to keep things fresh. I browsed through the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page, and narrowed it down to either mousse or cheesecake. I had such a hard time deciding, I actually made both. And will be hitting the gym double time to burn it all off. But it will be oh, so worth it! The desserts were scrumptious! Since it's only a day away, I thought I'd feature the Strawberry Mousse recipe since there isn't a lot of effort that goes into the preparation.
1/4 cup water
1 cup strawberries, pureed (about 1 1/2 pints), washed and hulled
1/3 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups non-dairy whipped topping

If you like strawberry smoothies, you are going to love this mousse. It tastes just like a thicker version of a strawberry smoothie! You can eat it as is, or get fancy and top it with a dollop of whipped cream, melted chocolate, or my favorite, little chocolate shavings.
You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.
If you like this recipe, be sure to come back every Friday, where I feature a new recipe from Golden Blossom Honey!
