Berries.  Mousse.  Dairy-Free?

Join me for a dessert cup filled with our latest culinary success — Dairy Free Berry Mousse — won't you?

This Dairy-free Mousse is loaded with so much healthful goodness that you will feel great eating it or serving to it your family for breakfast, lunch, snacks, desserts — pretty much anytime.

In fact, my son asks for it when he's sick, and I can just put in a little collagen to give him a protein boost, which makes it even more healthy.

He just LOVES blueberries.

Make that ANY kind of berries.  And cherries.

Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries….you name it — he LOVES them.

In fact, we had a 30 pound bag of organic blueberries in our deep freeze….I went into the freezer to find some to make some of this mousse for him, and found that the berries were….


I think I have about 1/4 cup.

Yeah, Mr. Bluelips.  You did it again.


Back to the recipe.

Berries are just loaded with antioxidants and phytonutrients that scavenge up free radicals to keep your body working well.

And chia is a nutritional powerhouse that we have somewhat recently added to our pantry.

So you can imagine my excitement when I could add these two together and come up with a refreshing no-bake dessert that is:

  • a breeze to make,
  • a treat to eat and
  • good for you to boot.

Nutritional Benefits of Chia

Just 2 tablespoons of chia has:

  • 4 grams of complete protein
  • 4.5 grams of omega 3 oils
  • 5.5 grams fiber
  • 9% RDA calcium
  • 7% RDA iron

I got the inspiration for this recipe from Ricki's Strawberry Fluff from Diet Dessert N Dogs.

I “met” Ricki years ago when I first started on my path of getting candida under control. Though I wish we'd “met” under better circumstances, since then she has been an inspiration for a lot of my kitchen adventures.  And we did eventually meet in person later, which was lovely.

Anyhow, the first batch of this lovely mousse was gone-zo in about 5 minutes flat.  So I went back to the blender to make some more.

And it's been part of our healthy dessert repertoire ever since.

Besides being healthy, it's a super easy recipe.

When you're a busy mom, being healthy can be hard, but recipes like this one make it a whole lot easier.

I already have some easy recipe favorites on my site like Chocolate / Carob Chia PuddingHomemade “Jello” with sugar free option, Homemade Gummies, No Bake Coconut Delights, and more.

I love recipes like these — no baking required, and one container or one pan only is needed for preparation, so clean up is minimized.

Here's how you can have some of this silky smooth freshness this spring or summer.

Dairy-Free Berry Mousse

Serves approx. 4     adjust servings

This dairy-free berry chia mousse is vegan, paleo, and allergy friendly – without sacrificing the fresh silky smoothness of a mousse! Perfect for summer.



1.  Put all ingredients in a high-powered blender (like the Vitamix) and blend until smooth.

2.  Pour into a container (I prefer glass or stainless) and refrigerate until cold.  You can, of course, eat it as is, but the flavor is much better chilled.

3.  Optional:  Add toppings.  We like our topped with fruit, rice bran, or toasted unsweetened coconut.  My sons even topped it with crumbled up Vitamix.  Yummy!


Recipe Notes

For the berries, you can use blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, you name it! If using strawberries, slice or chop before measuring. Be creative! A blueberry/cranberry mix works great too! We even used cranberries alone, for a totally anti-candida diet-friendly recipe. I just added a tad more stevia and the result was GREAT! See The Easiest Way to Freeze & Store Berries.

*Those of you who have not taken the plunge and purchased a blender like the Vitamix yet will have to grind the chia seeds first in a coffee grinder or the like.  (One more reason to buy a Vitamix :-).)

**If you prefer, of course you may substitute other sweeteners for stevia as well, according to your needs.  Depending on how sweet you like your foods and which sweetener you choose, you will need 1/2 cup to 1 cup of sweetener.

  1. How many carbs does this have in It? I made it without any sweetener or sugar. I just used chia seeds, unsweetened coconut milk, blueberrys and vanilla extract. So how do i figure out how many carbs are in it? I made coconut crust in a muffin tin and put this as the filling to make low carb low sugar blueberry tarts.

    • Hi there. You would have to use an online calculator to determine this. We’ve talked about putting something on my site but haven’t done it yet for various reasons. Maybe in the future. Thanks!

  2. Do you grind the chia seeds alone – before you mix everything? I have an old Vitamix and I do have a dry container I thought could be used for that purpose.

  3. Hi there, Want to try your mousse but I’m confused about the sweetener. Are you saying you only use
    1/4 tsp of stevia or up to 1 cup of say honey, maple syrup or plain sugar? I know stevia is sweet but I
    didn’t think there was that much of a difference!!
    Please let me know.
    Thanks so much!!

    how far in advance can this recipe be made?

  5. I tried making this one time and all seemed to go according to plan, but when I took it out of the freezer, less than an hour later it was 95% liquid! I don’t know what I did wrong…too much milk? I followed the directions…although I didn’t have Chia seeds at the time… Does that thicken it up a lot?

    I really want to buy a Vitmix I just don’t know which one to get. What is your recomendation.

    • Hi Victoria. I have the 5200 but I am intrigued w/ their new model. I haven’t had a chance to try it, however. I would lean towards the 5200 now since it has a bigger container. You could call Sue at 1 800 848 2649 ext 2308. She is very knowledgable and helpful. If you happen to buy one I would so appreciate your using my referral code CODE 06-005927 and you get free shipping that way as well. Thanks – you will love it!
