Vegan Lemon Mousse Tarts…a clean eating recipe made with whole food ingredients that’s “almost” raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
These Vegan Lemon Mousse Tarts are a perfect spring and summer treat because they’re so light and airy.
They are based off my Clean Eating Vegan Lemon Mousse recipe and I simply added an easy raw tart shell to them to dress it up.
Much better than eating the Vegan Lemon Mousse out of a bowl!
It takes a little advance preparation because the coconut milk used in this recipe needs to be refrigerated before using it, so it’s a good idea to always keep a can in the back of the refrigerator so you’re ready to use it without delay.
And, it only takes less than 15 minutes to make the mousse and the shell!

Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door:
Tip #1: Always keep a can (or two!) of full-fat coconut milk in the back of your refrigerator so you can make this recipe at a moments notice. If you don’t have a can ready, you will need to leave it in the refrigerator ~at least ~ 24 hours so the fat in the coconut milk can harden, but the longer the better. Once you open your can, the top half should be solid (fat) and the bottom half should be liquid (water). You will be using ONLY the solid part for this recipe (save the liquid part to add to a smoothie!).
Tip #2: I like to use organic raw coconut crystals to make mine, but feel free to use your favorite granular sweetener. If you use an organic, natural sweetener like raw coconut crystals, it might give the mousse a slighter darker color because the crystals aren’t white, but if you want it a pure white color, you might want to try using a white sweetener like a non-GMO xylitol.
Tip #3: These are best right out the refrigerator or freezer.
Tip #4: I used these cute little silicone tart molds and the recipe made enough to fill 4. You can serve them in the silicone mold or remove the mold before serving. Just make sure the crust has had enough time to harden in the freezer before removing the mold or it will not hold together. Keep them in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve because the crust will get soft and lose it’s shape if left out at room temperature.
