Mango Mousse Vegan – 3 Ingredients (with Video)

Mango Mousse Vegan

Okay folks, are you ready for this one? Three ingredient vegan mango mousse. It is possible and it’s insanely delicious! 

We had a friend come a few days ago and I was scrambling for a dessert. We had super ripe mangos that I wanted to use and a couple of cans or coconut milk. I decided to throw the two together and I was so incredibly pleased with the result. It was the perfect mousse-like consistency and the perfect amount of mango tartiness and maple syrup sweetness. Try it for yourself and see. šŸ™‚

  1. 1 mango
  2. *1 can full fat coconut milk, chilled
  3. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  1. *Place the coconut milk in the fridge
  2. Peel mango and remove mango meat
  3. Place the mango meat with the maple syrup in a high powered blender/food processor and puree.
  4. Open the can coconut milk and remove only the sold white part into a mixing bowl. (I usually drink the liquid, it's delicious!).
  5. Add the mango-maple syrup puree to the bowl.
  6. Using a hand mixture, whip it up! Whip until super smooth.
  7. Place the mousse in the fridge until served.
  1. The amount of time that the coconut milk should be chilled depends on where it was stored. It was stored in a cool place you may be able to skip this process entirely but if it's warmer, you will need to chill the can. Basically you want the coconut meat to separate from the coconut milk (the liquid from the can).

  1. I just made this, I haven’t tried it yet. When I opened the can of coconut milk, I was expecting a solid with perhaps liquid on top. It wasn’t that way. I strained it. Is this right?

    1. Hi Phyllis,

      Was there any solid part? There is often liquid so that’s okay! With full fat coconut milk you will get a solid + liquid mixture, with regular or light coconut milk it will likely be just liquid.

      If you strained the liquid from the solid, that’s great!

      1. No, there was no solid in the can. Maybe I used “regular” coconut milk. Who makes the “full fat” coconut milk? The pudding was delicious but, a little loose.

        1. Hi Phyllis, it was likely then you didn’t use full fat. Thai Kitchen and Native Forest have full fat (or called Premium) coconut milk options. šŸ™‚ I’m sure there’s more but those are the ones I use mostly.

  2. I tried this again. This time with peaches. I got Cream of Coconut. It was really a solid and I couldn’t see how that was going to “whip” up. I went back to the regular Coconut Milk which I had to strain. I have not been able to find “full fat” coconut milk. Does it say that on the can?

    1. Hi Phyllis. It will say premium or full fat or sometimes classic. If you shake the can in the store and you hear all liquid, it’s not good. These are the brands that will work: – don’t use simple or light or coconut cream – use premium

      you can shake it to make sure there is a solid part in it.

      I hope you are able to find it and it works well! Keep me posted! šŸ™‚
