  • 8 oz mascarpone
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. sugar


  • 1 c blueberries
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. clove
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together mascarpone, cream cheese, 3 tbsp sugar and lemon juice for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, use the whisk attachment to whip together the heavy cream, vanilla, and remaining 1 tbsp sugar about 2 minutes until the cream holds soft peaks.
  • Gently fold together the two mixtures until fully combined. Distribute the mousse into small serving bowls and refrigerate at least 2 hours.


  • In a medium saucepan, cook blueberries, sugar, and spices on medium heat until bubbling and liquid is dark purple. Some blueberries will have burst, about 5 minutes.
  • Refrigerate blueberry mixture until ready to serve. Spoon blueberry mixture over mousse, and enjoy!
