15 Comforting Vegan Recipes to Celebrate National Mousse Day (2024)

Happy National Mousse Day! In French, mousse means “froth” or “foam,” and it is absolutely delicious. It is sometimes light and airy, and sometimes thick and creamy. Either way, it tastes phenomenal. Traditional recipes usually use whipped egg whites, but plant-based mousse is just as, if not more delicious! Vegan recipes of this delicious dish are incredibly creative using ingredients like aquafaba (chickpea brine), avocado, cashews, and more to achieve the distinct texture of mousse.
