WW Recipe of the Day: Creamy Low Fat Vegan Strawberry Mousse
If you like strawberries, then you're going to love this dairy-free, low fat creamy strawberry mousse. Just 5-ingredients, a pinch of salt and about 10 minutes are all you need to assemble this delicious dessert.
The mousse will need to chill in the refrigerator, for at least 4 hours and up to one day—so be sure to plan for that.

How to Make Dairy-Free Strawberry Mousse Step-by-Step
Step 1: Gather six 6-ounce ramekins, or dessert glasses, and set aside. Add apple juice, agave nectar, cornstarch and salt to medium saucepan and whisk together.
Simmer over medium heat and whisk often. Reduce heat and simmer, while constantly whisking, until mixture has thickened, about 30 seconds. Mixture will become very thick. Remove pan from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.
Purée until mixture is smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Divide strawberry mousse among the ramekins or dessert glasses.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (until thoroughly chilled), or up to 1 day.
Low Fat Strawberry Mousse Recipe Notes
You'll definitely want to use silken, or soft, tofu to make this mousse.
What is Silken Tofu?
Silken tofu is undrained and unpressed tofu. It is usually sold in shelf-stable aseptic containers. Because of this, you may find silken tofu in another part of your grocery store, apart from the refrigerated section which usually stores regular tofu.
When you cut into the package, the tofu will be soft, smooth and feel a bit fragile. Unlike regular tofu, you don’t press this one. Just drain what little water there is in the package and pat it dry.
Silken tofu helps provide the creamy texture of this mousse and is a suitable replacement for dairy in many vegan/vegetarian recipes. Many dairy-free salad dressings, sauces and desserts will sometimes use puréed silken tofu to help with the thickening and getting to the desired level of creaminess.
Strawberry Mousse Serving Suggestions
Serve this mousse plain, with a sprig of fresh mint, or will a dollop of natural light whipped topping. A platter of whole fresh strawberries complements this mousse nicely.
Ways to Enjoy Strawberry Mousse Leftovers
Add some granola and/or additional non-fat Greek yogurt to make a healthy breakfast parfait.
