Today, we’re making a super fun, light, single serve dessert. It’s prepared in advance and is super easy to put together. You’ll love this delicious healthy dessert you can grab anytime. Even though it is simple, it’s elegant enough for a dinner party.

Traditionally mousse is made with whipping cream but I’m using coconut cream to make it lighter and dairy free!

I’ve been eating light all summer long as part of my inspiration to “lighten up” and experience more lightness of being.

Paleo Peach Mousse with spoon

You only need 5 ingredients for this recipe: peaches, coconut cream, gelatin (and water), maple syrup and vanilla. No baking required.

The gelatin in the recipe helps the mousse to set and gives it stability.

You can replace it with equal amounts of agar agar for a vegan option.

There are many amazing benefits from eating gelatin including:

  • better digestion
  • beautiful skin
  • protects your joints
  • better sleep

It’s important to get gelatin from grass fed animals. I like this brand.

Easy To Prepare

Sprinkle the gelatin into a pan with a little cold water and let sit for 5 minutes. This process is called blooming. It softens the gelatin and prevents clumping.

While it’s blooming blend half the coconut milk with the peaches, maple syrup and vanilla.

Add the remaining half of the coconut milk to the gelatin and heat while stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.  Blend with the peaches and pour into 4 small bowls.  Chill for
4-5 hours until firm.

Once you’ve put the mousse into the refrigerator to chill it’s time to make the Fresh Peach Sauce.  The mousse is fine alone but the peach sauce makes this dessert sublime!

The sauce is a combination of peaches, maple syrup to sweeten and a little bit of tapioca for thickeningIt’s simmered in a pan for 5-7 minutes to until they become a sweet peachy sauce. Then chilled until ready to serve.

Store in the fridge for  3 – 4 days. Store peach sauce separate from the mousse.  Spoon sauce on top of the mousse just before serving.

This Paleo Peach Mousse doesn’t freeze well. It might separate when you defrost it.

For the same reason, don’t try and save time by chilling in the freezer.  Plan to make them 4-5 hours in advance.

This is a SUPER delicious summer recipe. You’ll enjoy it’s creamy, light, naturally sweet, peachy taste. And you’ll feel light and energized!

If you can’t find coconut cream, get a can of coconut milk and refrigerate it overnight. The cream and liquid will separate. Use the cream part and none of the liquid.
