This Clean Eating Vegan Strawberry Mousse is made with only 3 clean ingredients and is ready in less than 10 minutes.
I based it off my Vegan Lemon Mousse recipe which simply replaces the lemon with strawberry.
It’s super easy to make and the only preparation you need is to make sure you have a can of full-fat organic coconut milk that has been refrigerated at least overnight.
This is the very reason I ~always~ keep a can in the back of my refrigerator so I’m ready to go at a moment’s notice!
Traditional strawberry mousse recipes can contain dairy and refined sugar and even some vegan ones contain soy (tofu).
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Dr. Oetker Strawberry Supreme Mousse Mix Ingredients:
Typical Ingredients: Dextrose, Fructose, Vegetables Oil Partially Hydrogenated, Contains One Or More Of The Following (Coconut Oil Partially Hydrogenated, Palm Kernel Oil Partially Hydrogenated, Palm Oil Partially Hydrogenated, Soybeans Oil Partially Hydrogenated), Sugar, Corn Syrup Solids, Corn Starch Modified, Sodium Caseinate, Propylene Glycol Monostearate, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Adipic Acid, Flavors Artificial, Salt, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Disodium Phosphate, Monoglycerides Acetylated, Mono and Diglycerides, Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 1
I don’t know who “Dr. Oetker” is, but shame on him for misleading people to think this product is safe or healthy just because it has the name “Dr.” on the label. No “Dr.” in his right mind who truly has his client/customers best interest at heart would every endorse a product with this ingredient list.
The above product has only 2 “Weight Watchers” points. This is a perfect example of why counting calories doesn’t always work. While this may be a good choice under the Weight Watchers program because of the low points, many people may choose to eat this product. But look at the ingredient list…it’s full of GMO’s, refined sugar, partially hydrogenated oils, carrageenan, artificial flavors, preservatives and two food colorings.
But…it’s only 2 Weight Watchers points. None of the ingredients in the this package will nourish the body or give it what it needs to thrive, but just the opposite.
When you eat real food with real ingredients that are nutrient-dense, you won’t need to eat as much to stay satisfied and won’t have to count calories and be inclined to eat foods like this just because they have “low points”.
Please know that I am not talking negative about the Weight Watchers program, but more about the food industry in general. They are creating these fake foods and trying to make people think they are good for them. It makes me mad.
Anyway, this healthier version is “almost raw”, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, no-cook, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.

Clean Eating Vegan Strawberry Mousse
Yield 1 - 2 servings
"Almost Raw" / Vegan / Gluten-Free / Dairy-Free / Lectin-Free / Soy-Free / No-Cook / Nut-Free / Paleo-Friendly / No Refined Sugar
- 1 can organic full-fat coconut milk (13.5 ounce can)
- 3 tablespoons organic freeze-dried strawberries
- 2 tablespoons organic unrefined granular sweetener*
*Lectin-Free: substitute with non-GMO xylitol
Advanced Preparation: Add a can of organic full-fat coconut milk to the back of your refrigerator at least 12-24 hours before making this recipe.
- Once the coconut milk has been refrigerated at least 12-24 hours, remove the can from the refrigerator. Open the can and scoop out the hardened "fat" part of the coconut milk from the top half of the can. The bottom half will be liquid (save this coconut water to add to a smoothie!).
- Add the hardened coconut fat, granular sweetener or xylitol, and freeze-dried strawberries to a mixer and mix on high speed until it turns into a fluffy mousse and thick enough to "peak". Adjust the sweetener to your preference.
- Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an air-tight BPA-free container because it will get soft if left out at room temperature.
- Optional: Top with organic shredded coconut flakes.
