Strawberry Mousse

Ok, I probably should have used fresh berries. My blender will NOT chop frozen berries, but the recipe said you could use frozen… I had to add about 1 cup of water and even then it was miserable and took forever. But when it was done the flavor was good.

4 c. frozen strawberries

1/2 c. Splenda

1 oz pkg sugar free white chocolate pudding mix

8 oz Cool Whip Lite

Combine berries in blender with Splenda and process until smooth. Add pudding mix and combine. Fold in Cool Whip.
