Vegan Almond Butter Mousse Strawberry Parfaits. Almond or peanut butter thickened into a peanut butter mousse and layered with strawberries or chocolate. 6 Ingredient PB & J parfaits. Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse, Gluten-free, Grain-free Coconut-free Recipe. Jump to Recipe
Right in time for Mothers Day! These parfaits are like peanut butter and jelly mousse cups. I use smooth almond butter to make a 5 ingredient mousse and layer it fresh strawberries and some graham cracker crumbs. Serve these with a drizzle of melted chocolate or a caramel sauce. So Good!
You can also use some strawberry or other berry compote in combination with the fresh berries. The mousse is lightly sweet, so use ripe fruits or add a drizzle of vegan caramel. I was planning to make a peanut butter mousse pie and was wondering about how to reduce the fat in the mousse. To get that rich and creamy consistency, the options would be to blend good amount of soaked cashews or coconut cream with the nut butter or blend it with silken tofu. I accidentally heated up my test cup of nut butter mixed with almond milk instead of the chai cup and it thickened into this thick creamy and still a bit light mixture. So that is what makes the mousse layer in these parfaits. The mixture of nut butter and nondairy milk thickens on heating and sets beautifully when chilled.
These parfaits are perfect served layered or made into a bowl with chia seeds, other fruits and a chocolate or caramel drizzle. Make these your own. Easy, Delicious and Summery.
