Vegan Peanut Butter Mousse
Light, fluffy, vegan and your favorite flavor: peanut butter!
- 1/3 cup aquafaba
- 1/4 cup organic sugar
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar or 1/16 tsp of xanthium gum
- 1/4 cup peanut butter powder I'm using PB & Me
Add the aquafaba to the bowl of your stand mixer and attach the whip. Add the cream of tartar or xanthium, and begin to whip at low speed for 2 minutes. Increase speed to medium and whip for 2 minutes more. Slowly add the sugar in a stream while whipping, and then turn the speed on high for 2 minutes. Check the mousse at this point, you should have nice stiff peaks. If not, whip it a little longer on high. Remove the bowl from the mixer.
Sift the peanut butter powder into the mousse. Carefully fold it in using a spatula. Spoon into glasses, then allow to set up in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours. Best if eaten fairly quickly--the mousse will start to deflate after a day or so.
