This creamy mousse is silky smooth and packed with lemony flavors thanks to the lemon juice and lemon zest. Marcus took one bite and wanted to eat the whole bowl!  I have to admit, I kinda wanted to as well!

Creamy, velvety smooth mousse with lots of lemon flavor!  Vegan and gluten free.


  • 1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, or more for extra lemony flavor
  • 3 T maple syrup


Chill the can of coconut milk overnight.

Open the can and scoop the solid milk out into a mixing bowl.  You can freeze the coconut water for smoothies.

Using the whipping attachment on your mixer, whip the coconut milk into a cream.  This can take several minutes on a high speed. Once you have a mousse like consistency, add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl.

Spoon into serving dishes and chill for 30 minutes. Enjoy!




Recipe Notes

For this recipe you must use full fat coconut milk. I like Thai Kitchen.  Coconut cream may also be used if you prefer.  Enjoy!
