Vegan Strawberry Mousse Pie
This Vegan Strawberry Mousse Pie is light, creamy, and bursting with fresh strawberry flavor! They are the perfect desserts for spring, summer, and valentine’s day. Also, you can add mint leaves for a prettier presentation. I always think it’s funny when people are skeptical of vegan (and gluten-free) desserts. We’ve all heard horror stories of sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan cookies that taste like cardboard and flax seeds. But when done right, they’re just as delicious as desserts made with more traditional ingredients.
How to serve the pie?
I decorated my vegan strawberry mousse pie with extra sliced strawberries because it’s very pretty and also to increase that fresh strawberry flavor.
Another great option instead of the strawberries or in addition to would-be some lightly sweetened whipped cream on the side. I generally use about 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to 1 cup of heavy whipping cream when making whipped cream.
How can I make Strawberry Mousse Pie a bit more healthy?
If you are focusing on clean eating or just want to save a few calories, try skipping the pie crust altogether! Choose a pretty trifle bowl or several small serving bowls instead of pie crust. You can also opt to sweeten the berries and heavy cream with a little honey instead of sugar.
