This Vegan Papaya Mousse is ready in 15 minutes. This papaya dessert is creamy, flavorful, and satisfying!
A savory recipe for a samosa needs to be followed up with a sweet and creamy dessert-like a Mousse! Not just the usual kind.
I am going for a tropical-flavored vegan mousse that hardly takes 15 minutes (Do not count the prep time, please:-)) After all, a recipe that is wonderfully creamy such as this Mousse will take a little bit of planning.
I am going with papayas for today's dessert. Not only because I crave Papayas all year long, but also because it has been long overdue. I have touched upon several fruity desserts but never Papayas.
Papaya Mousse is soft prepared food that blends in air bubbles to give it a light and fluffy texture. A cold and fluffy dessert is always a welcome option on a hot and sunny day.
The procedure is not that hard either. The difficult part is to get all the right ingredients that offer light and fluffy texture. I think I got the right mix after I dry roasted some oats in the mousse. Oats help in bringing all the ingredients together.
There are several techniques in preparing papaya Mousse, each with a varying level of fluffiness. I am hoping you will get the same fluffy texture that I did. Another main ingredient that turned out to be the key is coconut cream. Be sure to use coconut milk.
They are not the same and will make a big difference! Very soon, I am going to be posting another recipe or updating this recipe, with more details about the Chocolate and Mango Mousse that I am also trying.
