This raspberry mousse is light yet rich with a white chocolate flavour and a breeze to make. It’s also Paleo, Keto, and AIP with modifications.
So I’ve been making this dessert for quite awhile and have been meaning to share this recipe with you all. Now with Valentine’s Day approaching, I couldn’t think of a better time!
It’s such a decadent treat but don’t worry it’s made with real whole ingredients!
What I love about this raspberry mousse
Throw five ingredients into a blender, whip it up, refrigerate! BAM – you have a perfect treat! Celebrate with your Valentine 🙂
Typically, mousse is made with cream, eggs and sugar. This raspberry white chocolate mousse is completely dairy, egg and refined sugar free!
Don’t like raspberries? Switch them out for a different fruit. Strawberries, peaches, or even pineapple would be excellent!
So I’ve debated whether I should share this recipe since I do use some ingredients that are not elimination stage AIP compliant. But here’s the thing – AIP isn’t meant to last forever! However, I know how tough it can be during the elimination stage, so I wanted to be able to give some AIP modifications – and trust me it’ll taste great!
Cacoa Butter – Coconut Oil
Cacoa butter gives this recipe a white chocolate flavour. Cacoa butter is a super healthy fat as it is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids (good things to calm inflammation). However, since cacoa butter comes from the cocoa bean, it is not AIP compliant. Now if you’ve been able to reintroduce cocoa (chocolate), chances are you will be a-ok with cacoa butter.
But if you’re in the strict elimination phase of AIP you can substitute the cacao butter in this recipe with coconut oil!
Still want a chocolate taste? Dust the mousse with carob powder before serving!
I also use lakanto sweetener (monk fruit sweetener) in this recipe to make it Keto. However, in order to make it AIP compliant, you can use any AIP sweetener. Maple sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup, or honey would work just as well!
Now I use pure vanilla extract in this recipe. Vanilla extract contains alcohol which is ok to use in AIP baking or cooking since the alcohol cooks off. However, this particular recipe is no-bake. So if you’re in the elimination phase of AIP you can either omit the vanilla extract or use vanilla bean powder!

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse (Paleo/Keto/AIP)
4 hours 5 minutes
This Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse is light yet rich and a breeze to make. It’s also Paleo, Keto, and AIP with modifications.
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1/3 cup raspberries, frozen
- 1 inch chunk of cacao butter OR 1/2 tbsp coconut oil for AIP
- 1/2 tbsp lakanto sweetener OR honey for AIP
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract OR 1/4 tsp vanilla powder for AIP (optional)
- Add all ingredients to blender and blend for 30 seconds or until all is pureed and fluffy!
- Separate into two small bowls (I use small mason jars).
- Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to set!
- Serve cold.
Do you think it would work with coconut butter? I think it has a texture that is closer to cocoa butter.
Definitely! I’m pretty sure I made it with coconut butter once and it worked fine!
Will this recipe work with other frozen fruit, like cherries?
hi there…I just wanted to clarify. In the recipe you say to use cocoa butter if tolerated, but then later refer to it as cacao butter (under the modifications section for the cocoa butter). Which is it, or are they the same? I’d love to give this a try.
Hi Sara! This recipe uses cacao butter, it’s the fat derived from cocoa beans. Looks like chunks of white chocolate 🙂
