This Lemon Coconut Mousse is perfect for spring or summer. It can be made in about 5 minutes with only 4 simple ingredients. It’s vegan, gluten free and paleo approved too!
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!
Food photography can be tough sometimes. Here I thought I was putting everything in so carefully, but it still didn’t come out with the beautiful layers. Live and learn I guess.
I promise you that this mixed berry parfait is delicious! I made the nuts ahead of time. If you don’t like pecans, you can probably use another nut in it’s place.
The vanilla bean cream is to die for! I felt that it really didn’t need any sweetener. The vanilla beans give it a hint of sweetness. Also, if you are not a fan of coconut milk, you can probably use heavy whipping cream in place of it.
Here is a quick video on how to make the coconut whip cream. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.
If you look at coconut milk in the store, you will notice that pretty much every brand contains carrageenan. Even the organic brands. So the only other option is to make it yourself. The good news is that homemade coconut milk is so easy to do. It only takes a few minutes. The best part about homemade coconut milk is that you can flavor it however you like. I like to add a couple dates for sweetness, but you can also add in some chocolate for a sweeter treat. 🙂 This homemade coconut milk would be great in my coconut vanilla chia pudding or my raspberry coconut smoothie.
Hooray! Warm weather is here. At least, in Texas it is. So it’s time to start breaking out the ice cream maker. I already have a Cookie Dough Ice Cream and a 5 Minute Banana Ice Cream on the blog. Now it’s time to add another: Strawberry Ice Cream. Who doesn’t like strawberry ice cream? I know I love all things ice cream, especially strawberry ice cream.
I use canned coconut milk as a base for all my ice cream recipes for a few reasons. It has that rich taste and mouth feel of real ice cream and it is dairy free. I have tried using just nut milk, but it never comes out as creamy. Since this is so rich tasting, a little bit will satisfy you. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries for this. We used fresh organic strawberries since they were on sale the other day at Whole Foods. They were so sweet and yummy! Most store bought ice creams contain carrageenan and other unwanted additives. The organic stuff is always so expensive. The ice cream maker is pretty affordable and you make your money back pretty quick. Plus, you can create your own flavors! 🙂
