This pie doesn't need any topping, but man this mousse made for a tasty-just-came-home-from-a-long-day treat!
This mousse is easy.
This mousse is vegan.
This mousse also has only 3 ingredients!
Not sure what is with me lately with wanting to use as little as possible ingredient wise. I'm in kind of a quick and easy phase as I get ready for a new phase in my life. I have hesitated sharing this news here on the food blog. Mainly since I have four times as many readers here as my personal blog, mostly read by my MIL and my Mom! But more people somehow makes the news more "real". So here goes:
My husband, David, and I are about to become foster parents! When we have the kiddos (yes that is plural :) at home I will share more. We are hoping this situation develops into an adoption as well. We are so excited and blessed and terrified!
Thus, my desire to streamline my recipes and use minimal ingredients- at least for now :) We have been crazy busy, preparing, filling out paperwork, shopping consignment sales with super serious moms who were consignment pros. We were not. We were the couple who was asking other parents, "About how old is your kid? 4? Ok, well when did they start using their own potty?" :) Sortof kidding. We did get strange looks from people who overheard our obviously naive and inexperienced conversations! But most were extremely helpful.
Back to the mousse... The pics do not represent how yummy and easy this is. Really, you just have to have remembered to put a can of coconut milk in the fridge a couple hours before you want to make it. Also, I used my not-so-great mini food processor because I was lazy and didn't want to move the mound of dishes in front of the Vitamix. If you use a Vitamix or Blendtec, this will be much smoother and creamy.
Quick Peanut Butter MousseIngredients
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (can also use almond butter or sun butter for a peanut free options)
- 1/4 cup coconut cream (that rises to the top from a refrigerated can of coconut milk)
- 1-2 dates, or to taste
- Blend all in a food processor or high powered blender until smooth.
- You can refrigerate for parfaits or use right away for a snack or a pie topping- if filling a whole pie I would at least 4x the recipe :)
