Fluffy Refreshing Vegan Lemon Mousse

This recipe is so easy to make! Vegan mousse is made with aquafaba instead of egg whites. Aquafaba is the liquid you find inside a can of boiled chickpeas. You can also get aquafaba after boiling your own chickpeas, but I don’t recommend doing that for this recipe. Stick to the aquafaba inside a can of salt-free boiled chickpeas. Aquafaba contains a protein that mimics perfectly egg whites in different recipes, like our Egg-Free Vegan Meringue (recipe found in our cookbook & e-bookALL PLANTS: The Food You Love, The Vegan Way“: Light, airy, and perfectly sweet Egg-Less Meringue that you’re going to love.

Toppings

Instructions
 

  • Make sure to have refrigerated the can of full-fat coconut milk overnight.
    The Best Creamy Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse
  • Extract only the solids of the coconut milk can and place them in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Let the coconut melt, stirring until smooth.
    The Best Creamy Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse
  • In a high-speed blender, combine the lemon peel strips, creamy oat milk, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon extract, and icing sugar, and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into the simmering coconut milk, and bring to a simmer again over medium heat, stirring for a few minutes, until the mixture has thickened. Let simmer until it becomes thick and creamy, stirring continuously.
    Fluffy Refreshing Vegan Lemon Mousse
  • Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to get to room temperature. This is a very important step!
  • Once the lemon mixture is at room temperature, place the aquafaba and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl and, using an electric mixer with beaters, whip on medium speed; turn to high speed. Beat until white and glossy stiff peaks form. Make sure you have achieved stiff peaks. The best way to do so is by inverting the bowl with the whipped aquafaba. If it slides down at all, you need to keep whipping until it doesn't move at all. Stir in the granulated sugar, while whipping at high speed. Keep whipping for 10-15 more minutes until it gets thicker and looks completely smooth (without any sugar pieces left).
    The Most Delightful Vegan Passion Fruit Mousse
  • Now whip the lemon mixture inside the saucepan until it's completely smooth and creamy.
    The Best Vegan White Chocolate Vanilla Mousse
  • Gently and gradually fold the lemon mixture from the saucepan inside the bowl. Use a silicone spatula and a gentle folding motion. Don't whip them together, only use a silicone spatula!
    The Best Vegan White Chocolate Vanilla Mousse
  • Place the lemon mousse in glasses.
    Fluffy Refreshing Vegan Lemon Mousse
  • Refrigerate for a few hours (around 4 hours), or until the mousse has set. Serve chilled, topped with fresh basil leaves, lemon slices, and lemon zest, and enjoy this fancy and delicious dessert!

    OMG This is the very best lemon mousse that I have tried! My mother and my husband LOVED it too! The texture is amazing, and the flavour is so delicate and sweet. So perfect! I recommend everyone to give it a try!

    1. Thank you so much! We are so happy to hear that you and your family loved it! I’m making this lemon mousse all the time, as my family and guests are always asking for it! 🙂

    First of all, thank you for sharing!
    The best thing about this was the texture–very fluffy! The flavor, however, didn’t work for me. The lemon extract tasted fake, and the finished mousse wasn’t sweet enough. I added some agave syrup but couldn’t get past the fake lemon aftertaste. I may try it one more time with a little more fresh squeezed lemon juice and more icing sugar.
    Also, the prep time stated (25 mins) is misleading. The cooked lemon mixture took over an hour to come to room temperature, and whipping the aqua faba alone took 20 minutes. Allow at least one and a half hours for prep, then 4+ for chilling.

      I thought the taste was exquisite. The lemon zest really gave it that zesty delicate flavour. I wonder the quality of the lemon extract you used? Mine is good quality and did not make this dessert taste artificial at all. Plus it’s only 1 tsp?The level of sweetness was also perfect for us (boyfriend and I ). Anyway, we thought it was an amazing recipe, the best lemon mousse we’ve tried!

      1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. We are so glad to hear that you and your boyfriend liked our vegan lemon mousse!

    2. You are welcome and I’m sorry to hear that! Most of the flavour is provided by the lemon zest and the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Sometimes I’ve even made this recipe without any lemon extract and it turned out just as delicious. About the lemon extract, the one I use doesn’t taste artificial (we’ve been based in Sweden until recently).

      About the sweetness, I suppose it depends on how sweet you like desserts, but my mother in law loves extra sweet stuff and she LOVED this lemon mousse. So did my mother, father, husband and a few other guests.

      About the time it takes to whip aquafaba, did you add cream of tartar to the mix? Because that’s the key ingredient to make it whip super fast. I have made this recipe and others containing aquafaba so many times, always whipping it with cream of tartar, and the granulated sugar, and it never takes more than 5-10 minutes. I always use an electric mixer with beaters too, of course. The only way it could take me as long as 20 minutes is when I’m making vegan meringue.
