5-Ingredient Blueberry Mousse [Vegan, Grain-Free, Raw]



  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for a minimum of 30 minutes
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or a splash of vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon maqui berry powder (optional)
  • Fresh blueberries, lavender sprigs, and/or edible flowers as garnish (optional)


  1. Allow the frozen blueberries to sit for about 10 minutes to allow them to defrost a bit.
  2. Drain the cashews.
  3. In the pitcher of a high speed blender, add the ingredients in this order: blueberries, drained cashews, lemon juice, hot water, and the vanilla and maqui berry powders if you're using them.
  4. Begin blending on low speed, using the tamper stick or stopping and scraping the sides with a spatula to push all the ingredients towards the blade. Slowly increase the speed to high. Once the mixture looks well-blended stop the blender and pour in the melted coconut oil. Blend again for 30 seconds.
  5. Pour the mousse into 4 serving dishes. Garnish as you like. Serve immediately or chill for two hours to firm up, which creates more of a mousse texture.


Leftovers keep for 3 days in the refrigerator if stored in a sealed container.
