Hungry Girl Strawberry Margarita Mousse

This mouth watering recipe found it's way into my inbox yesterday via Hungry Girl and I absolutely had to share it. Imagine whipping up a batch of this delicious mousse for the grown folks at your next backyard barbecue or perhaps serving this as a treat for a girls night in.

Hungry Girl Strawberry Margarita Mousse

Ingredients -
1 large (8-serving) package JELL-O Sugar Free Strawberry Gelatin Dessert Mix
2 cups frozen unsweetened strawberries, mostly thawed
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip Free, thawed
1 cup cold Sprite Zero (or any diet lemon-lime soda)
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. (2 1/2 oz.) tequila
3 tbsp. lime juice

Directions -
In a medium-large bowl, combine gelatin mix with 1 cup boiling water, and stir until completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

In a blender, combine strawberries, soda, tequila, and lime juice. Puree until smooth. Add this mixture to the bowl with the gelatin mixture and stir thoroughly. Refrigerate for 45 minutes, until slightly thickened but not set. (Do not over-refrigerate.)

Using an electric mixer, blend in the Cool Whip. Once mixture appears mostly blended, use a spoon to mix it up from the bottom. If needed, continue mixing until uniform. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, until mostly firm. Enjoy!
