Strawberry Balsamic Mousse (Paleo/AIP)

Print

I have gotten quite good at eating out while also AIP. The one thing that I almost never order however is dessert. It is darn near impossible to find egg, dairy and grain free desserts! And I know that many of you know that desserts on AIP sometimes are lacking. But this little strawberry balsamic mousse is packed with SO much flavor with the addition of balsamic vinegar and organic freeze dried strawberries it is worth the little effort to find the ingredients. I love freeze dried strawberries for traveling, but have started to use them lately for desserts. These are key for this recipe because it keeps the mousse super concentrated and not as watery as using all fresh strawberries might. Also, getting the right amount of gelatin is key. Adding too much makes it too tough. I added enough to keep it slightly firm, but still fluffy. Remember to use balsamic vinegar that has no additives. Many balsamic vinegars have added sugars! I called the company I buy my balsamic from and made sure it was 100% pure. This recipe makes 4 nice servings and I would definitely serve this to a non-AIP crowd and not even think about it. So easy too!!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Ab interesting twist of adding balsamic vinegar to this dessert. This vinegar is low sodium and is a low calorie flavoring. Coconut milk is a useful source of iron and fiber. It is high in easy-to-digest fatty acids but it is high in saturated fats and calories. Beware of the calories of this dessert!

    This dessert is delicious. I leave out the maple syrup and use 8 ounces of strawberries (half of a tub) for a more tart flavored mousse.
