Smooth and creamy and ready in an instant! Healthy “Reese’s” Mousse. Rich chocolate peanut butter flavor with zero dairy or sugar! (Keto & Vegan)
This classic combination NEVER gets old. Peanut butter and chocolate will always be the greatest pair. Don’t you agree??
I could live on peanut butter for the rest of my life… especially with chocolate added. And healthy chocolate to boot! Raw cacao powder which is FULL of antioxidants and NO sugar! #winning
Ok here’s my confession of the week: I ate a “REAL” Reese’s peanut butter cup. (GULP. I know) Someone gave one to my daughter at a play we went to on Saturday with a whole bunch of other candy (side rant– WHY do people insist on giving my kids candy EVERYWHERE we go? School, ballet, every dang place?! lol)
So with all the mom-ninja skills I could muster, I snuck a Reese’s cup out of the bag while she wasn’t looking on the drive home. It had been a long, very very long time since I tasted an actual peanut butter cup, and I wanted to know what they tasted like. You know, for RESEARCH PURPOSES. (And I was absolutely starving, ok?)
And you know what? It was sickening lol!! Like someone made a disc of pure SUGAR held together with a little peanut butter. So sweet I could only stomach a small bite. And even that made me feel sick. What was I thinking all those years of devouring candy?!
Moral of the story: MAKE YOUR OWN HEALTHY REESE’S TREATS. Then the other stuff won’t even taste good anymore. Isn’t it incredible how your taste buds change?? You don’t need all that sugar. The end, ha.

It’s no secret I have a Reese’s obsession. That has always been my favorite candy. PB + Choc always and forever. <3
And I know I’m not the only one who shares this love affair. I know you feel me. My recipes for Peanut Butter Bark, Healthy Reese’s , Reese’s Freezer Fudge, and Peanut butter Cup Cheesecake have been CRAZY popular.
I have no plans of stopping the healthy Reese’s recipes anytime soon 😀 Because there is nothing better than junk food turned into health food!
ps I’m totally going to make a healthy Reese’s ICE CREAM recipe soon. Heck.Yes.
Ready in an INSTANT
This mousse has just FOUR main ingredients (plus salt and vanilla).
- Coconut cream
- Peanut butter
- Cacao &
To make it, all you have to do is put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and WHIP. 2 minutes from start to finish. SO EASY. So quick!
But you have to be prepared! How? Keep several cans of coconut milk in your fridge at *all times*. Ya know, in case of a Reese’s emergency.
I always use Thai Kitchen brand coconut milk now because it consistently separates the cream from the water (and you don’t want any water in your mousse!)
I have started using this pure stevia powder a lot more lately and I’m absolutely LOVING IT. The taste is so pure. No chemical or weird aftertaste. Just natural sweetness that comes from a PLANT.
Remember with pure powder, it only takes like a *dusting*. You don’t need much at ALL. And that also means that big bag lasts for like.. years! Awesome.
ps. If you wanna make your mousse extra pretty, add a dollop of whipped coconut cream and some chocolate shavings. Because pretty food tastes better than plain food, haha 😉
