Creamy Peanut Butter Mousse Recipe

Eat it with a spoon.

Use it as frosting for cake or cupcakes.

Serve with sliced fruit as a dessert dip.

Or spread it on pancakes and top with chocolate chips.

The peanut butter mousse tastes so luxuriously rich and creamy, it’s hard to believe the entire recipe takes just 5 minutes to make, with no heavy cream required.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

Be sure to use either full fat canned coconut milk or coconut cream here, not reduced fat coconut milk or the cartons of coconutmilk sold in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

If you open the can and the cream inside is already thick, feel free to skip the chilling step. Try to not shake the can before opening, to ensure the cream stays separate from the watery part underneath.

Every now and then, you might get a can that’s chalky and rock hard or that simply won’t whip up. While this has only happened to me a couple of times, I like to always keep two cans on hand just in case.

For a coconut-free version:

Beat room temperature 8 oz. cream cheese or vegan cream cheese with 4 oz butter spread, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1 tsp pure vanilla extract. Add a little milk of choice as needed.

  • 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk or coconut cream (see above for coconut-free option)
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar, or stevia or sweetener of choice to taste
  • 2 – 5 tbsp peanut butter, as desired
  • optional, feel free to blend in 1 banana


  • *Be sure to read through the recipe tips and tricks above in this post.

    If not already super thick, refrigerate the coconut milk overnight or open and freeze about 10 minutes (or just store in the fridge as soon as you buy it so you’ll never have to wait). Once cold, transfer only the thick part to a bowl, discarding the coconut water or saving for a different recipe. With either a stand mixer or hand beaters (or a lot of arm strength and a fork), whip all ingredients until stiff peaks form.
