Recipe: Raspberry Mousse (Dairy-Free)

Thanks to fruit sharing, we have a freezer full of wonderful raspberries to tide us through the winter. I'm continually looking for new ways to eat them and this mousse has recently become our new favorite dessert. It uses simple ingredients and is fast to make - just be sure to make it a few hours ahead of time so it can set.

Although I haven't tried making it with other fruit, I feel pretty confident that it would be equally tasty with strawberries or blackberries or a combination thereof- so experiment and use what you have on hand!


Raspberry Mousse (serves 3-4)
1 can coconut milk (we use Native Forest)
1 tsp agar agar powder
1/2 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
1/3 cup honey (or other liquid sweetener if you're vegan)

In a blender, place raspberries and honey. In a medium saucepan, bring coconut milk, agar agar and vanilla to a rapid boil. Whisk continuously for several minutes. Remove coconut mixture from heat and place in blender. Mix everything thoroughly. Pour immediately into dessert cups and place in the refrigerator. Allow 4-6 hours to cool and set. Top with raspberries - or not - and serve! 

Note: it will set faster if you use frozen fruit.

This looks lovely--nothing like raspberries for a great dessert! Would you mind adding a vegan alternative to the honey, though, so I can keep it on the WW page? Thanks. :)

To Miz Helen, Alissa, & Nisrine - Thank you so much for commenting!

Joy said...

I "taste-tested" this on my family last night. Mom was the only one who'd ever had mousse of any kind before, rest of us didn't even have a concept for it...
Mom approved texture and the other all approved taste and requested it come again sometime. The boys all wanted chocolate added to it...maybe next time I'll set it up in little dark chocolate dessert cups...
Thanks for the recipe!

Shanon Hilton said...

Oh, I am so glad it was a hit! Thank you for letting me know - I always enjoy hearing other people's experiences with my recipes!

I bet pouring it into chocolate cups would be delicious! --S
