Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

These vegan and paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries are so adorable to look at, easy to make, and are a healthy, delicious dessert for Valentine’s Day or any occasion!

Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

For me, Valentine’s Day (or any occasion for that matter) is all about having a great meal instead of the dessert being the highlight of the celebration. So if I do want to enjoy something sweet, I prefer something small that I can eat in a bite or 2, and I created this recipe with exactly that in mind.

Today, I’m putting a twist on the classic chocolate covered strawberries by putting the chocolate INSIDE, and the result is these Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries that may be just too adorable to eat. And best of all, the chocolate mousse is made with avocados, making this a healthy little treat though you’ll never know it.

You do need a piping bag to make this recipe, especially if you want to make it pretty with the chocolate peaks coming out of the strawberries. But if you don’t have one, you can try to stuff the strawberries with a small spoon or a knife, and then cover it up with toppings of your choice.

I used a combination of shredded coconut flakes, chopped almonds, chopped goji berries, and chocolate chips to top the stuffed strawberries, and they all turned out so cute and so yummy. I highly recommend using some kind of nuts, because that crunchy texture is SO GOOD with the creamy mousse and tart strawberries.

You can also make these a day ahead and then refrigerate until they are ready to eat. It’s a perfect easy, bite-sized treat if you need something sweet and yummy!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles (Paleo, Vegan)

These sweet and creamy Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles are paleo and vegan, and they are a delicious and healthy treat on a hot summer day!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles

It’s almost 4th of July, and I’m relishing in the fact that it falls on a Tuesday. It feels like an extra-long weekend, although Monday is a work day for many people. From what I’ve been hearing, most people are working from home or taking Monday off, so It feels like an extra-indulgent mid-week break!

While I usually don’t post recipes on weekends, I wanted to get these super summery and scrumptious Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles to you before you start the celebration with BBQs and fireworks. I just love the combination of berries and cream, and even better when it’s in popsicle form!

I love that these mixed berry popsicles are festive as well, with their red, white, and blue hues. I used strawberries and blueberries, but you can use any other types of berries as well, like raspberries or blackberries. Either way, you have to try them because this is such an easy recipe and it’s so dang yummy.

What fun plans do you have for 4th of July? I think we might head to the beach to watch the fireworks and try out some food trucks. Of course, I will enjoy this yummy cold treat as well since they’ll be calling my name from the freezer. While I’m not a sweets-lover, I can definitely enjoy 1 or 2 coconut mixed berry popsicles, when it’s over 80 degrees out!

  4. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Once partially frozen, push down the popsicle sticks into the middle of the mold until they stick through the frozen layer so they stay in place.
  6. Place blueberries in the mold on top of the coconut milk layer, pushing some down to the middle of the mold
  7. Pour the rest of the coconut milk mixture over the blueberries to the top of the mold.
  8. Freeze the whole thing for at least 4 hours.
  9. When ready to eat, run the mold under warm water to remove the popsicles.
