Most mousse recipes call for egg whites to create a light and fluffy texture. I used silken tofu in this recipes that adds a light element that whips nicely with the honey and coconut cream.

Using freeze-dried strawberries instead of fresh or frozen strawberries ensure the liquid is kept at a minimum, creating a silky smooth mousse that’s loaded with strawberry flavor. Since we use the freeze-dried strawberries, it keeps in the fridge and freezer a bit longer as well. Make sure to look for freeze-dried strawberries that don’t have added sugars or preservatives to keep this yummy treat wholesome and healthy.

When adding silken tofu to a recipe, especially this one, I like to place it on a cheesecloth or thin kitchen tower to let as much water drip out. You want to minimize liquid in this recipe so the final product is both light and creamy. I let the tofu sit in a towel over a large bowl for a few minutes then use the tower to squeeze/wring it out with my hands.

If you want to make a version that’s vegan, simply use maple syrup instead of honey. It may be a little thinner since honey is thicker than maple syrup, but it’s equally delicious. You can also experiment with different freeze-dried fruits, like blueberries, raspberries, mango, or banana (or a combo of those – YUM)!! Oh man, strawberry banana sounds so good 😋and so does mango 😝


This recipe is soooooo good. I know this is one for the books – my boys are already asking for more and it’s been less than 24 hours. They’re relentless when it comes to sweets. I don’t blame them (nor do I feel guilty) because it’s soooo freaking good and made with ingredients that I’m proud of! I can’t wait for you to try this. It’s too easy peasy to not make it. Go ahead now. Go on!

Easy + Healthy Strawberry Mousse


makes 10 servings

1 serving is about 1/2 cup mousse



  • 3 cups freeze-dried strawberries (about two 1.2 oz. bags – I use these)
  • 16 oz. silken tofu, drained (see notes)
  • 3 cups coconut cream (about two 13 oz. cans – use the solid portion only)
  • ½ cup honey (see notes)



  1. Spoon all of the ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Blend for about 6-8 minutes, stopping to scrape the bowl a few times during the blending process (the longer you blend, the lighter and fluffier it will become).
  3. When smooth and creamy, spoon mousse into serving dishes/cups and place in the fridge until ready to eat!



  • Drain as much water from the tofu as possible. I let mine sit on kitchen towel over a large bowl for a few minutes then I manually squeeze the rest out using the same towel.
  • For a vegan mousse, use maple syrup instead of honey.

      You’re very welcome 🙂 I usually don’t use tofu but it is perfect for this treat! If you make it, I would love to hear what you think.

    This looks awesome! What would be a good sub for the coconut cream? My son can’t eat any form of coconut.

    • Nicolette

      Thank you. You can try additional tofu or soaked cashews (maybe 1.5-2 cups cashews soaked in water for 12-24 hours then drained). I would love to hear if any of those work for you!

      • Jen

        Thank you I’ll try that
