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-book “ALL PLANTS: The Food You Love, The Vegan Way“: Light, airy, and perfectly sweet Egg-Less Meringue that you’re going to love.

- 1/2 cup cashews
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/3 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 lime peel strips
- 4 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup creamy oat milk
- 1/4 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 cup aquafaba, the liquid inside a can of salt-free chickpeas. Essential ingredient to achieving the airy consistency, refrigerated overnight
- 3/4 tsp cream of tartar, essential ingredient to achieve the airy consistency
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- In a food processor, combine the almond flour, rolled oats, Himalayan pink salt, pitted Medjool dates, and agave syrup, and process until the mixture resembles loose crumbs.
- Cover the bottom of the serving glasses with the crust.
- In a high-speed blender, combine the cashews, nutritional yeast, lime juice, lime peel strips, creamy oat milk, cornstarch, and icing sugar, and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan 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.
- Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to get to room temperature. This is a very important step!
- Once the lime 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).
- Now whip the lime mixture inside the saucepan until it's completely smooth and creamy.
- Gently and gradually fold the lime 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!
- Place the lime mousse in the glasses on top of the crust.
- Refrigerate for a few hours (around 4 hours), or until the mousse has set. Serve chilled, topped with fresh mint leaves, lime slices, and lime zest, and enjoy this fancy and delicious dessert!
- Store in the refrigerator, covered tightly with cling film, for up to 2 days.
