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.
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.
