1/4 teaspoonskosher salt
Place the berries and lemon juice in a small food processor or alternatively in a small mixing bowl. Pulse with a food processor to smash and puree the berries or smash them with a potato masher or a fork until pureed.
Place the cream cheese, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the berry mixture and beat to combine. Add the cream and beat again, until smooth and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Place the NILLA wafers in a freezer zip-close bag, remove excess air, and seal. Smash with a rolling pin or the flat side of a measuring cup until fine crumbs form. Place the butter in a small glass bowl and melt in the microwave, this should only take about 20 seconds. Add the wafer crumbs to the butter and stir with a fork to combine.
Divide the buttery crumbs into small serving dishes and press lightly with your fingers to form a crust. Spoon the berry mousse mixture over the crusts. Top with NILLA wafers and the berries of your choice. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
Keep in mind that the sweetness of the fresh berries will determine the flavor and sweetness of the dessert.
