strawberry mousse dessert recipe

I was seriously tempted to call this million-dollar strawberry mousse because I used one of my son’s favorite expensive as heck treats to make it. This delicious dish has amazing flavor and taste and honestly will make your baking life so much easier. Forget about stressing about gluten and use this recipe as a way to feed your family and heal your body from food triggers and recipes.

This is the perfect decadent sweet for Valentine’s Day or any time you want to splurge and spoil yourself. I normally reach for anything chocolate like this 3-ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse BUT, again, it was a special day so I had to make something a bit extra.

I find that that this is the treat I always reach for when it’s my monthly moon. I try to focus on eating healthier treats that work with my hormones around that time and this recipe is a winner.

AIP Dessert Tips

When it comes to AIP baking, I love knowing that there are delicious recipes that can help with an autoimmune disease and even those who are on a paleo diet.

Cutting out the sugar and replacing with foods that are healing for the gut is something that I feel like I search for all the time!

What do AIP desserts taste like?

Luckily, this grain free AIP recipe proves that tasty and “approved” can be easy. I love that it doesn’t have any type of flour at all in this recipe, and it is without an added egg as well.

To be honest, I’m usually looking for cookies or brownies that are nut free, but I couldn’t pass up this AIP dessert!

It’s time to treat yourself to a AIP friendly recipe that will have everyone coming back for more!

Why this recipe works:

Not only is this recipe easy – seriously you just dump all the ingredients and mix – but it’s packed with healthy fats and vitamin c.

When it comes to AIP diet desserts, you’re going to love this one! It’s the perfect way to curb your sweet tooth while staying AIP friendly. Who says that AIP sweets have to be boring? This is one of my favorite AIP recipes and I think you’re going to love it as well.

It also works because this is one of those desserts that are just plain yummy! It’s got a wonderful sweet balance of flavor that pairs really well with the added coconut oil.

It’s also without gelatin and nut free, which are two things that we omit typically from our baking process.

Why AIP desserts?

They’re delicious, that’s why! So many people feel that limiting foods has to feel restrictive, but I don’t agree with that!

You can eat healthy and still have a ton of flavorful food to eat! (Life is too short not to eat the cake!!)

Are bananas ok on the AIP diet?

You bet! I love adding them for natural sweetness!

Adding bananas helps make egg free recipes moist, helps make dairy free recipes retain a great texture, and helps give nut free recipes loads of flavor!

Is chocolate allowed in AIP?

It’s not. But that is where you’re going to want to find a natural alternative to use. There are many cookies that are delicious and make into great desserts with the use of chocolate and sugar. (cake, too!)

How long does this AIP diet recipe take to make?

From start to finish, this AIP dessert takes just minutes. The hardest part is going to be stopping the family from gobbling the whole thing down in one sitting!

Is this a healthy dessert?

Since you’re not using chocolate or added sugar, this is a delicious recipe that is great for anyone with an autoimmune disease who needs to eat desserts that are AIP approved.

What I love about this AIP dessert is that it’s sweet and delicious and makes baking a breeze!

Does this recipe have gelatin in it?

It doesn’t. There is no gelatin added to this autoimmune protocol dessert. You get the creamy texture of ice cream, without having to add any gelatin.

Can I use honey instead of maple syrup?

A healthy and delicious sweet alternative is to use honey. It’s an amazing addition that adds yummy flavor. (if you can use local honey, that’s best!)

Can I leave out the maple syrup?

Since this dessert is easy to make and if you want to make this treat a bit differently, go for it. It’s your life and you know what you need to enjoy in your food healing process.

Are all AIP dessert recipes dairy free?

Yes, AIP desserts are dairy free. You’ll find some that use coconut milk for that creamy texture and taste.

What other popular recipes can you make healthy and AIP approved?

Since we live in a world of AIP options, you can easily make most recipes nowadays dairy free, nut free, and egg free. This means that recipes like brownies, apple pie, cookies, and even ice cream have the option to be part of a healthy diet.

Just remember that you need to change the recipes as needed to be free of eggs, nut additions, and other foods that will get in the way of healing your gut.

Why do I have to omit chocolate on the AIP diet?

Chocolate has in dairy in it which is something that you can eat on the AIP diet. The chocolate includes ingredients that can inflame your gut and slow down your healing journey.

What other foods are omitted on the AIP diet?

To truly eat an AIP diet, you need to eat dairy free, egg free, and nut free. You can use includes like coconut flour, coconut oil, and other gluten free ingredients.

Coconut oil is a great way to enhance the flavor of coconut flour and also to create a moistness to various AIP desserts like brownies, cake, cookies, and more. (every body loves moist and declious cake recipes and desserts on the AIP diet!)

What you’ll need for this Whole30 strawberry dessert Recipe:

I mentioned earlier in the post that there are no eggs, no honey, and without any type of flour. (this includes no tigernut flour, no coconut flour, and no cassava flour, either) I do add in maple syrup for natural sweetness but it’s not a ton!

How to Make This Strawberry Mousse Recipe:

Did I mention that this whole30 strawberry dessert was crazy easy to make? It’s always at the top of my AIP dessert recipes because it reminds me of the perfect combination of ice cream and whipped cream – and I love the texture of this sweet treat!

Place all the ingredients in your food processor and blend until smooth. Chill for 1 hour and enjoy!

Skip the aisles of the grocery stores looking for AIP desserts to buy and make your own egg free and nut free option! If you’re following the autoimmune protocol, this aip compliant dessert is a must.

Can I use fresh strawberries in this dessert?

This healthy dessert really does need dehydrated strawberries for the best flavor and taste. If you add fresh strawberries to this AIP dessert, you may find that it waters down the recipe and makes it messy.

Your sweet tooth will appreciate the texture of this AIP dessert – I promise!

How do you store this amazing dessert?

Most AIP desserts are going to be need to be stored in a cool dry place. Even though they might be egg free and dairy free, keeping AIP desserts chilled and cool will enhance the flavor the best.

I like to think of it as ice cream so I keep it cool and in the fridge. (You’re going to love the texture of this AIP dessert!)

Can AIP recipes be frozen?

Anytime you make a recipe, you’re going to have leftovers. Many desserts can be frozen, but you have to make sure that the recipe has ingredients in it that will thaw and still be delicious.

I always freeze cookies, cakes, brownies, and any other type of food that I can enjoy later on my diet. Since these are dairy free, grain free, and egg free, they tend to freeze really easily!

Are all AIP desserts Paleo friendly?

You’ll have to check out the ingredients in the recipes to verify that.

What other natural sweet ingredients work to sweeten recipes?

Some people will even use mashed up sweet potatoes to add some sweetness to their desserts! Anything that replaces sugar will work as long as it follows the autoimmune protocol and reacts well with your body.

What is the most popular flour to use on the AIP diet?

While this recipe doesn’t use flour, some AIP desserts call for flour. The best flour to use would be cassava flour, tigernut flour, coconut flour, or any other type of gluten free flour that isn’t nut based.

Can you really make a dessert taste good that is dairy free and egg free?

Yes, you can. A dessert that is dairy free and egg free can still be delicious! Desserts that are made Paleo may be lacking in egg and nut but that doesn’t mean that they’re lacking in flavor.

It’s true that eggs are a great binding agent, but you can use coconut oil instead. Desserts are really flexible so don’t let the fact that they’re nut free and dairy free throw you for a loop.

Being free of certain ingredients just means that you’re free to change up the way that it’s made! Be sure to use what you need to for your autoimmune protocol and create cookies, cake, ice cream, or more!

Don’t think of the AIP diet as limiting. Think of it as a way to help get your autoimmune issues on track and as a way that you can still enjoy gluten free desserts as well!

Here are some other recipes that you may love on your AIP diet journey as well! Remember that healthy food can be an amazing way to stick to your diet needs!

  1. OMG! This recipe is to die for! I’m on a restricted subset of AIP and thought desserts were a thing of the past. This was soooooo good, I got out the VitaMix wrench to take it apart to I could “lick the beaters”. So yummy.

  2. This continues to be one of our faves. I just discovered that, after chilling it, popping it in the freezer for half hour makes it even better!

  3. Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for sharing your recipe! I’ve never used avocado in a sweet treat before. Was wondering if the end product starts to turn a little brown after a day or two from the avocado? Thanks!

  4. This is one of my new favorite recipes to satisfy my husband’s sweet tooth occasionally while on AIP. It’s delicious and easy. Trader Joes also has dried blueberries and raspberries so I may try it with one of those berries just to mix it up next time.

  5. Oh. My. Gosh. This is SO good! Just made it and am having a really hard time putting it in the fridge to set up- I want to put it all in my face right now!!! Btw, Amazon has a decent price on a 4oz bag… Makes it a bit more do-able, financially speaking. THANK YOU for an awesome AIP sweet treat. I will add some Great Lakes collagen next time to make it seem even “healthier” 🙂

  6. sounds wonderful, where I live i never saw dried strawberries, What could I use instead, , maybe dried or frozen blueberries? or another dried fruit

  7. I would love to try this recipe. But . . . . I’m allergic to bananas! I can’t think of any possible substitutes, especially for that much volume.
    Anyone have an idea??

  8. This was absolutely heavenly! SO much strawberry flavor with just the right amount of sweetness! Wonderful recipe that I’ll be making again for sure!

  9. thanks for this, it’s exactly what I was looking for. I can’t wait to try it using my recently purchases (and yes, super expensive) freeze dried strawberries. does it really need the coconut oil or can I skip it? not really keen on substituting with butter either.

  10. This looks delicious, would love to try it! Just one question, I’m allergic to avocado, what could be the substitute or should I just skip it?
    Thank you in advance!
    Best wishes:)

  11. I made this with dried and frozen raspberries because my mom is allergic to strawberries and fresh raspberries were out of stock. It was delicious!
