Variations to Easy Blueberry Mousse
Think of this Blueberry Mousse recipe as a blank canvas for your creativity. If you have peaches, plums, apricots, or other jewels from summer's bounty (or the farmer's market) hanging out in your kitchen, they'll all work here.
We slip our stone fruits out of their skins to keep the texture smooth and creamy, but you certainly don't have to. The skins boast a lot of flavor, texture, and nutrients, after all!
If you're looking for a chilled sweet treat, freeze the mousse for 50 minutes and the silky-sweet mousse firms into an ethereal sherbet. Just don't forget about it in the freezer, or you'll end up with an inedible hunk of ice—not something that resembles ice cream.
Easy Blueberry Mousse FAQs
What is gelatin?
Gelatin is a common gelling agent in foods and cosmetics. But what is it exactly? Well, it's a substance that comes from treating collagen from animal bones. While this may not be a problem for some vegetarians, the animal source of gelatin makes it unsuitable for vegans.
Can I make this mousse vegan?
This mousse is not naturally vegan, but it can easily be made vegan. Simply substitute the gelatin for agar agar or pectin. As for the yogurt, you can easily swap it out for your favorite coconut or other non-dairy yogurt!
