Creamy Coconut Milk Papaya Mousse

  • Author: Ursula Herrera
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 3 -4 1x


Only 3 healthy ingredients and you have a super refreshing , creamy, and delicious treat.



  • 1 can unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh papaya cut in pieces
  • 2 tablespoons honey *you can substitute for maple syrup or stevia


  1. Refrigerate the can of coconut milk the night before so the fat in the milk turns to cream and separates from the liquid.
  2. Open the can and use only the cream of coconut. Place it in a bowl.
  3. Whip the cream of coconut (I used a hand mixer) for just a couple of minutes first. You want to soften the cream a bit before mixing with the fruit and honey.
  4. Blend the papaya with honey (using a small blender or food processor), and then add it to the bowl of coconut cream. Mix well.
  5. Place the mousse in a container or small bowls.
  6. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
  7. You can decorate with some papaya cut in little pieces on top.
  8. Keep refrigerated .


You can try other fruits for different flavors. I am thinking strawberries, mango, peaches, blueberries, or bananas could work really well.
