Coconut and Raspberry Mousse

coconut and raspberry mousse

The first time I made this I had intended on delivering itΒ to my neighbour, but it didn’t get there. My children barricaded the kitchen. The three of us succumbed to sitting on the floor, each with a spoon in hand and digging straight in.Β Pink smiles from ear to ear.

This recipe is quick, easy and full of goodness. We have it for breakfasts, desserts or snacks. I hope you enjoy it.

    Hi
    Im new to your facebook page and your website and was just wondering if you had any ideas on what foods I could use to replace bananas as I have banana intolerance and my son has a banana allergy
    Many thanks

      For this recipe you could simply omit the bananas. I would love to hear how that goes. It will make a smaller portion so you may want to double the recipe. I hope you enjoy the blog and if you have any questions please let me know. Enjoy the mousse.

    Omg Bi…u won’t believe this but i only just logged online to see this recipe…after class today i made the exact same mousse in gym kitchen same ingredients only difference being dubbed avocado with ABC (almond,Brazil,cashew butter) that lovely Henriette made …how funny we made same thing without knowing…even showed Bec and Maz but they wouldn’t try lol

    • bianca

      Crazy! I hope you liked it as much as we did. It isn’t hard to double up in the world or raw natural sweets. Enjoy your experimenting, nice work!

  • Renee Young

    Love it..tastes like a sorbet

    Hi, I have just made your Raspberry and Coconut Mousse. Mine doesn’t look anything like your picture. It looks a dull greeny, red colour…
    We are new to eating this type of food. I know my kids (ages 9, 7 and 6) will refuse to eat this unless i add a little extra sweetness. What would you suggest?

    • bianca

      Hi Melanie, all credit to you for making such big changes. It is disappointing that it hasn’t worked out. Firstly you can add maple syrup or honey to increase the sweetness if necessary. Secondly, if you have the courage to make it again try adding more raspberries, it should be a vibrant, appealing colour and this will also help with the sweetness. Did your mixture blend up okay? You can always make it in a food processor. I hope this helps. Please do not be discouraged, the fudge recipe has been very popular, it might be worth giving that a shot.

  • Janelle Atkins

    Hi, could you use coconut oil instead of coconut milk?! only because I dont have any milk in the house and dying to ry this πŸ˜›

    • bianca

      Certainly worth trying! Be sure to let me know how it goes. You could even omit or use almond milk. I hope this helps.

      • Janelle Atkins

        I tried it with coconut oil and added almond milk also as it was hard to combine in my blender! Yummmmmo! My 9 mth old daughter also loved this! I have only sampled as i used a fresh banana and have decided it may need to be in the freezer for a few hours πŸ˜‰
        Thanks so much for all of your yummy recepies! Havent come across one yet that my 6 year old hasnt liked! x

        • bianca

          Thank you Janelle, that is great! You can also use a food processor for the recipes. Thanks again, love hearing about substitutes.

  • Dawn

    Yum!

  • Cheri

    How do you ‘heap’ coconut milk in a tablespoon? Isn’t it a liquid?

    • bianca

      There is a thick, creamy part that forms at the top of the can, especially when stored in the fridge. You can either use this part or enough of the liquid for the mixture to blend nicely. I hope this helps. Enjoy!!

    • Jacqui

      I was wondering the same thing, thanks for asking this question, i thought i was the only one who didn’t know how to make a heaped tablespoon of a liquid.

  • Patty

    Can you make this ahead of time and keep in the frig? Just a few hours?

    • bianca

      Hmm, great question. I haven’t tried, ours doesn’t last long! I would love to hear how it goes if you give it a shot. You could keep it in the freezer and re-blend prior to serving which will be more of an ice cream consistency. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

  • Amy

    Would this work with blueberries instead of raspberries?

    • bianca

      Hi Amy, that is certainly worth trying! It sounds delicious, let me know how it turns out. Many thanks!

  • ashley

    I’m paleo and dying for some mousse but not a fan of avocado or banana, can you actually taste it in the final product?

    • bianca

      Hi Ashley, I personally think that you cannot taste the avocado and that the raspberry dominates, but I also know that people who dislike banana can often taste it in things that I cannot. Perhaps omit the banana? Let me know how you go. I hope that helps. Bianca

  • Jodie

    I just whipped this up and OMG it is so yummy, this the first recipe i have tried from your site and will definitely be trying more, the only thing i did different was i accidently used coconut cream, i should really watch what i am doing next time lol

    • bianca

      Hi Jodie, I am rapt that you liked it!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write! Using coconut cream is perfect! If you try out any other recipes I would love to hear what you think. Thanks again, Bianca

  • Faye

    Hey Bianca, thought i’d let you know I make this one and use coconut oil instead of the coconut milk, then freeze it (often put in more avocado too) . Its a great ‘fruit’ serve for bubs who often wont eat anything else at meal times! Works well as we are fructose free except for couple of fruit serves a day so great way for Leila to eat her fruit but with so many other goodies bulking it up.

    • bianca

      Sounds great Faye, thank you. I am rapt that you are able to make some of the recipes and that Leila is enjoying them too! I made some fructose free savoury muffins on the weekend, I will get them on the blog soon. I need to whip them up again to get a photo, but unfortunately I cannot get all of the ingredients in town, keep your eye out, they are a great fruit free mum snack. I hope you are all going well. Thanks again for checking out my little blog!! B. xxx

    Hi Bianca

    I have recently started “eating clean” and today I found and made this recipe – it was yummy! At first I was a bit skeptical about using a vegetable for a dessert, but turns out the raspberries are strong and sweet enough to hold their own!
    I used a normal banana and it worked fine, but was maybe not stiff enough – I think that the consistency would be better with a frozen one, so I will go frozen next time.

    Thank you!
    Caroline in Berlin

    • bianca

      Thank you Caroline! All the way from Berlin! How fabulous! I am glad you liked the recipe and I hope you get the chance to try plenty more. I love hearing how you go with them and I really appreciate you taking the time to write! Many thanks, Bianca

  • Wendy

    What did I do wrong? I just tried this and it didn’t come out at all, it was gross!
    I put the ingredients into my VitaMix as listed and it came out waaaay too avocado-ey. I tried to doctor it with more raspberries a little more coconut milk and it was worse. It was an odd greyish-pink color… everything was just bought at Whole Foods. I’m so bummed! I was so excited to try this and it did not come out at all. πŸ™

  • Wendy

    And I did use a frozen banana that I had in the freezer (fresh / frozen). Just bought the avocado, raspberries and coconut milk – Soy Delicious Original Coconut Milk. πŸ™

    • bianca

      Hi Wendy, I am disappointed for you. Did you use frozen raspberries? I am unsure what Soy Delicious Original Coconut Milk is? Is this pure coconut milk? I also keep my coconut milk in the fridge. I am sorry it didn’t work out for you, I cannot think of anything else. Bianca

  • Gibbsgirl

    Hello Bianca,
    I was wondering if you could use a firm avocado as opposed to a mushy really ripe one. They are getting harder to find ripe ones this time of year.

    • bianca

      I personally would only use a ripe avocado, you could omit the avocado? It will still be lovely with the frozen fruits and coconut milk. I hope this helps. Bianca

  • Clare

    Im going to try this as it will be super gor the children. One is 4yrs and the baby is 7 months.
    Your blog has reached Lincolnshire in the Uk!

    • bianca

      Thank you Clare, I hope you like it. xx

  • haley

    Hi i have all the ingredients here at home except i have frozen mixed berries strawberries rasberrys and blueberrys. Do you think it would still be ok to use them instead?

    • bianca

      Yes, perfect Hayley, I hope you like it. x

  • Mel

    Tried this tonight, worked out great! The kids loved it and so did I, its a keeper!

  • steph

    this sounds amazing! I don’t have a very powerful blender though, do the rasberries and banana have to be frozen or does it work with fresh fruit? thanks

    • bianca

      Hi Steph, I have only made it with frozen fruit. Sorry if that isn’t much help. xx

  • Shona

    Hi Bianca. I love all your recipes and can’t wait to try this one. I was wondering how many people this would serve (generally).
    Thank you for such amazing recipes.

    • bianca

      Hi Shona, my two kids and I eat it all up, my two kids would eat it all without my help too but I always like to have some, I hope that helps. Bianca

  • Rachel

    Yum – couldn’t wait til tmw for banana to freeze so modified with 1 non frozen banana + 3/4 cup mixed organic frozen berries & 1/2 avocado + heaped table spoon coconut cream. (Thermomix 20secs speed 6). Thanks – loving your blog!

    • bianca

      Thank you so much Rachel, I am glad you like it. I really appreciate you leaving the thermomix instructions, I am sure many people will like that. I hope you get the chance to try a few more recipes. Many thanks, Bianca

  • Christina

    oh this is so yummy πŸ™‚ I have a heap of frozen boysenberries so I decided to use them. oh so delicious and a big thumbs up from my boys πŸ™‚

  • Carrie

    Just made this recipe with blackberries, but I messed it up, used a cup of milk so it turned out the consistency of yogurt….still very good though. Might have to try this again to get the mousse thickness..love your recipes. Thanks for the inspiration to stay healthy and the quick recipes you post.

    • bianca

      Thank you. xx

  • Alison

    Unbelievable! I just made this and it is so delicious. I am going to make it again and freeze it into icy pole holders for the kids, they won’t even know how healthy it is! Thank you for your site, I have been having a blast cooking up these delicious recipes. My favourites so far are the choc chewy cookies, banana bread and now this.

    • bianca

      Thank you so much Alison, I am glad you are enjoying it. I would love to hear how you go with the icy poles. Many thanks, Bianca

    • Frances

      how did the ice poles go? I would be interested to know also how they turned out?

  • Ann-Maree

    My kids & I love this, but my blender doesn’t. It seems to free-spin & not mix & I have to turn it off & stir it up from the bottom of the blender… Does anyone else have this problem or is it time for a new blender for me…?

  • Chels

    Very yummy. I could have eaten it all myself, but I would of have had to steal it away from my 3 year old somehow!

  • Georgia

    Is there any possible alternative to using the avocado? Avocados where I live are ridiculously expensive at the moment

  • Frances

    Hi Bianca,
    I have tried the recipe a few times and love it also. When serving, i added some shredded coconut and also some muesli on the top. I have the banana pudding in oven now :).
    Thanks,
    Frances.

  • Kaylene

    Hat can b used if banana is an issue

    • You can just omit it and increase the berries slightly. I hope you like it.

  • Lisa Michelle

    Made thias tonight – so good! Bellini instructions same as thermomix πŸ™‚

    • Fabulous!! Thank you. I am glad you liked it! I have heard many good things about the Bellini, I hope you are enjoying it.

  • Lady Godiva

    I adore this recipe, and make it frequently. Just had some this morning… had hardly any avocado (that was sufficiently ripe!) in the house, so just threw in a medjool date and some fresh mint. The mint gave it a wonderful zing – I’ll be using that with it again!!! :o)

  • megmat

    My 10yo son wants to learn to cook. We started with this as our after dinner snack. He was so impressed he is now reading the recipe books instead of playing on the computer! Win Win.

    • That is great to hear!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I hope he finds many more recipes that he enjoys.
