Some recipes just turn out better than expected, and this Whipped Vegan Caramel Mousse is one of them!
Perfectly sweet and just a little salty thanks to Georgia Grinder’s almond butter, it’s the perfect dip for fresh fruit or spread for a warm baked good like these Cinnamon Sugar Bagels.

Now, to make this mousse, start by storing a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Then, add the almond butter, maple syrup, and coconut oil to a small microwave-safe bowl, and nuke it for about a minute or until the syrup starts to bubble.
Then, whisk the ingredients together, and place them in the fridge to cool. Once cooled, open the coconut milk, and remove the thick part. If you’re using sugar (I suggest you do), add it into the coconut milk, and whisk until combined. Keep whisking the mixture until the coconut milk starts to thicken and forms little peaks on the whisk.
To finish, stir in the cooled caramel (remember, it’s been chillin’ in the fridge), and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat! It’s seriously that easy. So, drop what you’re doing, and toss that coconut milk in the fridge for later. You won’t regret it.
