Banana mousse recipe with step by step photos – a quick and tasty no cook dessert recipe of eggless banana mousse.

banana mousse

Desserts, cakes and muffins are made at home once or twice a week. So when I have time I take pics and update the recipes on the blog. This recipe of making mousse from some fruits is my go-to recipe.

I have made Mango mousse, Strawberry mousse, Chocolate mousse using the same recipe method. I had seen this recipe a few years back in a book and by now have tried many times making the mousse with fruits. This is a quick recipe and gets done in 15 minutes. The only time taken is chilling the mousse.

Tips for making banana mousse

  • Usually I make this banana mousse with leftover amul cream (after adding it to the Punjabi gravies) and fruits that are on the verge of getting too ripened. Amul cream (which is 25% fat cream available in Indian markets) works well in such recipes. If you can get whipping cream, then you can also use that.
  • Fruits that can be used are apples, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and mangoes. Avoid using melons or citrus fruits.
  • This banana mousse recipe has honey instead of sugar and it really goes well with bananas. If you don’t have honey then add sugar instead.

Eggless banana mousse can be served plain or topped with some plain banana slices or caramelized banana slices. I topped with grated chocolate. You can also dust with some cocoa powder.

  1. You are awesome and because of you only I’m able to work in kitchen without any problem. Your recipes make me a good cook. Thank u for this blog n for the awesome mouth licking recipes.:-)5 stars

    1. thank you for your kind words 🙂 and positive views. you are always welcome geetika 🙂

  2. Hi,
    I love your recipes and am a great fan of yours.. Just wanted to know if I can add hung curd in place of fresh cream.

    Thanks

    1. you can add hung curd. the taste will be different than with cream and the mousse will have sour notes in it, due to the hung curd. but overall the taste will be good. add honey or sugar accordingly.

  3. Hi dassana,

    Your recipes always turn out to be great. 🙂
    Will Amul low fat(25%) cream do or is heavy cream needed to get the mousse consistency?

    Thanks

    1. amul cream works. i use amul cream for all the mousse and panna cotta recipes that i have posted on the blog. in this recipe, the banana also helps in giving a mousse like texture. if you can get heavy cream, then heavy cream can also be used in this recipe.

  4. Hi Dassana,

    You’re truly a kitchen goddess! I have recently started cooking and looked towards your blog to help me out primarily coz it helps me make dishes that are super quick but look as if hours have been spent making them. And I must say that within a week you’ve transformed this newbie to a decent cook! Eternally grateful to you for that. Made the above recipe and mushroom roast yesterday for dinner and it was phenomenal! Didn’t have besan so added rice flour instead 😛 the results were still good!

    So here’s a big hurrah to you! Keep cooking 🙂

    XOX 🙂5 stars

    1. thanks anindita for this kind and motivating feedback. you made my day. keep visiting and do try some more recipes.

  5. Hi dassana, tried the abv recipe and hv kept it in the fridge… it should set by night .. looks yum. hope my son likes it ….. i also tried your chocolate banana mousse.. while melting the dark compound chocolate i added the cream and coffee powder..but the full thing got spoilt.. can u tell me how it must hv happened… probably while i was adding amul cream from the pack a little milk also poured out .. could that be the reason or something else .. one thing im sure is that there was no water in the chocolate vessel ….

    thanks dassana
    regards and take care

    1. spoilt meaning what happened. did the mixture looked curdled? the mixture should have a velvety smooth look or appearance. if it looks curdled, then the cream had already got spoiled. don’t eat if the curdling has happened. if not, then you can have as well as serve the mousse.

      1. Yes dassana, it looked curdled… i guess you are right the cream must hve been spoilt…. it was 4-5 days olds but kept in the fridge … i know the pack says use it within 2 days after opening … .. hey dassana thanks for your prompt reply … next time i will see to it that i use fresh cream in every dish… thanks a lot ..

        regards n tk care ..

        1. thanks for informing marina. next time when you use cream, just smell it. its should have the fresh cream milky aroma. if it smells sour or even faintly sour, then its spoiled. better to use in a few days after reopening.

  6. Hello ur recipes are very tasty I just love them, but can I use milk instead of fresh cream and coco powder instead of grated chocolate??? Thank you!!!

    1. milk will not give you the mousse like consistency. so milk cannot be added instead of fresh cream.

  7. I hv tried ur many recipes and all came out good.
    Now for this I want to know can I use cream from milk(malai) .
    One more good thing is u always response to my questions.thanks for that.

    1. welcome shallu. thanks for sharing positive feedback. yes you can use but first whip it in the blender.

  8. Wow! I love love love this website… I have a sweet-tooth and since coming to UK I have been craving good indian sweets for what feels like forever. Thank you so much for these amazing recipes… I am going to try all of them one by one in due time! Oh and all the vegetarian savoury dishes too!!
