Raspberry Cashew Mousse

Since my daughter announced that she wanted to become a vegan I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with new recipes. I’d always thought of a vegan diet as being pretty restrictive but I’m finding it a lot easier and more rewarding than I had imagined. I am enjoying using nuts, seeds and mountains of fresh fruits and vegetables to come up with delicious meals. Those are ingredients I have always enjoyed and have on hand at all times

I am a firm believer in a healthy, balanced and protein rich breakfast and have always relied on eggs. They are simple to prepare in a variety of ways with sautéd veggies, are a lean source of protein, easy to turn into a nutritious breakfast.

Not a good vegan option, however.

For my daughter to eat breakfast it has to be super simple and super tasty.

In my quest for the perfect vegan breakfast I came up with this fabulous raspberry mousse.

It has a smooth creamy texture and is bursting with flavor and nutrition and you’ll find that it is just as delicious for breakfast as it is for a power packed snack of a dessert that tastes sinfully good.

Serving of Raspberry cashew mousse

All you need are 5 ingredients and in less than 5 minutes you have a scrumptious mousse ready to be savored one delicious spoonful at a time.

You’ll need a blender, a glass bowl, a spatula and lots of fingers for licking!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashew pieces
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or other nut milk of your choice
  • 16 ounces raspberries
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest

Instructions

  1. Place the raw cashews and almond milk in the bowl of your blender and blend until creamy. For a smooth cream I allow the cashews to soak in the milk for at least one hour but preferably overnight before blending.
  2. Add the raspberries and maple syrup and blend until berries are fully incorporated in your cream.
  3. Top with lime zest and mix to combine.
  4. Serve chilled with fresh berries, mint or lime zest for garnish.

  1. I have heard of people using cashews to make “cheese” and “yogurt.” This is the first I have heard of mousse and it sounds quite delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe – I just pinned it!

  2. I love cashews! This sounds really interesting!

  3. It looks like it has the texture of yogurt? The mousse sounds amazing, though! I wonder if you could make it with almonds and strawberries?

    • This one does have more of a yogurt consistency Sara, good catch. The consistency will change depending on the milk you use and how long you keep your mousse for. It’s fluffiest on the first day 🙂

  4. Looks yummy! Love simple breakfasts just like this during the summer

  5. That sounds really nice! It seems like it would be good with granola too!

  6. I have never heard of adding nuts to a mousse but it looks delicious. Definitely on my something to try list.

  7. I love love love cashews so this sounds extra-good to me. I bet it would be perfect to start the day with on some of these super hot days!

    I love that you pair the nutty flavor of cashews with sweet, fruity raspberries in this recipe! It sounds like such a delicious collaboration! I would probably eat this raspberry cashew mousse dolloped on top of a slice of angel food cake. Do you have a vegan recipe for angel food cake? Thanks for sharing <3

  16. sounds good

  17. I love cashews and raspberries- but I never thought of them as a pair! Genius!

    • I use cashews a lot for healthy treats Rachel in part because they are fairly mild in flavor and blend so well with a variety of scrumptious ingredients like raspberries. I also love their healthy nutrient profile 🙂 Enjoy this mousse and let me know what you think!

  18. CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE AND TRY THIS!!!

  19. Amber Ludwig says:
