Easy Berry Mousse (Paleo, Dairy-Free + No Added Sugar)

It’s funny how my tastebuds have changed since adopting the Paleo way of eating. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a bit of a sweet tooth, but the sweet things I like are not nearly as crazy sweet as the sugary treats I consumed before. This easy berry mousse is a perfect example of a sweet treat that I love that actually has no added sugar, just the natural sugar from the berries used.

It Really Is Easy

The hardest part is waiting for your coconut milk to chill in the fridge for 12-24 hours. Once you’ve properly chilled your coconut milk though, just toss all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until everything is smooth and creamy. Then, pour into single serve dishes, cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours (or more). The waiting is really the hardest part!

Add Your Favorite Toppings + Enjoy

Once the mousse has chilled for at least 4 hours, go ahead and enjoy! Top it with your favorites. For these photos I added some extra blueberries and a few Enjoy Life chocolate chips. Raspberries, coconut flakes and raw cacao are yummy, too. I just didn’t have any cacao on hand when I took the photos. Seriously though, whatever toppings sound good, just go for it!

Use Full Fat Coconut Milk

Make sure you use full fat coconut milk. It won’t get all fluffy if you don’t. We always use Aroy-D coconut milk, and find that it gets perfectly fluffy and light. We also like Aroy-D brand because it is not in a can, which eliminates BPA risk.

Add Collagen

Collagen is listed as an optional ingredient, but I’d say definitely add it in! It is great for your gut, hair, skin, nails and liver among other things. You can read more about it in this post from Dr. Axe where he explains what collagen is and 7 ways it can improve your health.

  • Do you use the whole “can” of full fat coconut milk, or just the cream that separates after the refrigeration? This looks so yummy, thanks for a great recipe!

    • So, we get full fat coconut milk that doesn’t come in a can, and it doesn’t quite separate like the canned stuff does. We use chilled full fat coconut milk, so I think just using the full can should work, but if you’re worried about it and want a thicker mousse you could just use the creamy part at the top and it will for sure end up great! If you do use the full can, let us know how it goes! Have a great weekend!

      • Thanks so much for replying. I am planning on making this for my hubby and will let you know the results. We loved your salted caramel brownies, even without the caramel as I was in a hurry!

        • Fantastic! Those brownies are a family favorite! We take them with us wherever we go and make them when we entertain – usually without the caramel. So glad you guys liked them too! Look forward to hearing how the Berry Mousse goes! 🙂

      • I tried this with full fat coconut milk and it was watery. I would just use the cream. Guess I will make a smoothie in the morning with it!

        • Dang! That’s a bummer – did you chill the coconut milk before and then the entire mixture after to let it set a bit? Unfortunately, I think different full fat coconut milks act a little differently for recipes like this. The full fat coconut milk we use (Aroy D) isn’t very watery to start and sets nicely usually, but even batch to batch can vary a little. You’ll have a tasty smoothie at least, and give it a try next time with just the coconut cream. Thanks for giving our recipe a try and for taking the time to come back and share! 🙂

    • Yes, it will be fine without the collagen. The collagen dissolves entirely and really has no impact on the texture. You could use gelatin if you’d like for the health benefits of it, just know the texture will turn out more like pudding/jello than mousse. Hope that helps! Keep us posted! 🙂
