Raspberry Coconut Mousse (Vegan)

Yum! Raspberry Coconut Mousse. Just because you are vegan, does not mean you need to give up desserts like mousse.  This healthy mousse is sure to please.

This healthy mousse can be made in a matter of minutes and it’s rich in texture and taste.  If you haven’t guessed by now, I just love the combo of raspberry and coconut.

If you love this combo as well, you may want to check out my Raspberry Coconut Muffins or my Raspberry Coconut Smoothie.  If you don’t want to use raspberries, you can always replace them with strawberries or any other fruit.


Raspberry Coconut Mousse

This heavenly raspberry coconut mousse is vegan, gluten free and paleo.   It only calls for a few simple ingredients.  Chocolate chips may be a nice addition as well.

I used fresh raspberries, but I am guessing you can use use frozen as well.  Just let them thaw and drain before you use them in this recipe.

White Chocolate Raspberry Squares (Vegan)

White Chocolate Raspberry Squares. If you make anything, you must make these ASAP!  We made a stop into our local vegan bakery, Reverie Bakeshop last weekend.

They are awesome by the way!  I noticed they started selling homemade, vegan white chocolate chips.  The ingredients were mostly clean too.

Just cocoa butter, evaporated cane juice, vanilla extract, oil and salt.  I bought a bag and promptly got to work making these White Chocolate Raspberry Squares.

If you love raspberry, you may also like my Chocolate Raspberry Vegan Cheesecake or my No Bake Raspberry Macaroons.

This recipe only contains 5 simple ingredients.  It is gluten free and vegan.  If you replace the chocolate chips, or omit them, this can also be paleo friendly.

If you are not vegan, feel free to use regular chocolate chips if you like.  When Marcus came home from work and tried one of these, the first thing he said was, “Oh my god! These are heavenly!”  I guess that means they are tasty haha!  I hope you enjoy them too.

Coconut Pecan Cookies

New cookie recipe for you today.  Originally, I set out to make cowboy cookies.  Then after I had them in the oven, I realized I forgot to add the chocolate chips and oats.  Oops!  Even without those 2 things, these coconut pecan cookies still came out very yummy.  They almost reminded me of the flavors in pecan sandies.  In any case, these flourless cookies were delicious.

Sweet Potato Coconut Curry

Out of all the veggie pasta out there, sweet potato pasta is my fave!  I love that you can eat a large portion and not feel guilty! I was never really into regular pasta that much, so I am loving all these veggie pastas.  In this Sweet Potato Coconut Curry the flavors work in a magical way.  I seriously could have eaten it all myself, but I had to save some for Marcus!

Thai Coconut Rice

My husband comes up with a lot of the savory recipes on this blog.  This Thai Coconut Rice is one of his creations.  He loved it so much that he declared, “This ranks right up there with the Peanut Noodle Stir Fry!”  If you have made that recipe, then you know that is a high compliment.  He made this a little spicy, but you can certainly omit the jalapeno pepper if you don’t want the heat. Some of the other recipes he has made are Homemade Sriracha and Sweet Potato Chili.
