Lose yourself in dessert magic with this super easy vegan Coconut Strawberry Mousse. Made with only four ingredients, it's the perfect creamy, fluffy mousse dessert that you've been waiting for. Just don't forget the spoon!
1cupcoconut creamthick, use the cream part and not the water
Defrost the frozen strawberries in the microwave.
Whisk the aquafaba (liquid leftover from cooked chickpeas) in an electric mixer. For ease, I obtain the aquafaba from a can of unsalted chickpeas. Whisk the aquafaba for 5-6 minutes to achieve a medium-stiff peak. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Wipe your mixer clean and whisk the coconut cream for 3-4 minutes. Add this to the whipped aquafaba, but don't mix.
Puree the strawberries with maple syrup in a blender.
Fold the strawberry puree into the whipped aquafaba and coconut cream. Be gentle and take your time to ensure everything is combined well. This gentle folding is what will give your strawberry mousse that delicate and fluffy consistency.
Transfer into small or medium bowls and refrigerate for at least one hour - ideally three hours.
**Aquafaba is a relatively new trend. There is limited information regarding its nutritional composition.Desi-licious RD Recipe Tips
Don't overdo it in the microwave. The thawed strawberries should look bright—otherwise, they will lose their shape and become too wet. If the strawberries are too frozen, you can microwave for another 10-15 seconds
Choose thick coconut cream - not coconut milk; or else, your coconut strawberry mousse will be too runny and not have the right consistency
Use an electric mixer to whip the aquafaba and coconut. Doing this by hand will take too long
Be patient when you whisk the aquafaba. You want to achieve a stiff peak for that perfect strawberry mousse softness
For best results, I'd recommend refrigerating the mousse for at least 3 hours
Just before serving, garnish with strawberries, a sprig of mint and coconut shavings
