This healthy mousse would be great on it’s own, but also delicious as a refreshing dip for fruit.  I just love the combo of the coconut and lime together. It’s so perfect.



If you want to pack it with even more key lime flavor, you can add a little bit more zest.  I only added 1/2 teaspoon, so feel free to bump it up to a full teaspoon if you like.

  1. I tried using this as a healthier replacement in Carlota, a Mexican dessert. I didn't get a fluffy result; maybe it was the brand or because the can had been in fridge for months, idk. Even though it was soupy, it was tasty and I will be trying this recipe again!
    1. Sorry that happened to you! :( I've found the best results come from the Thai Organic brand. Other brands come out soupy.
