eggless pomegranate mousse recipe – this is a vegan recipe to make pomegranate mousse.

pomegranate vanilla mousse

there is no animal product like gelatin or milk/cream in the recipe. the whole mousse is made in cashew milk. generally i don’t use eggs and gelatin in mousse.

for vegans, i would suggest them to make the mousse in cashew or almond milk. vegetarians can make the mousse with dairy milk. avoid using soy milk in this recipe as it will have the soy taste in the mousse.

vegan pomegranate mousse

the thickening agent i always use for making mousses is agar-agar. if you live in india, you can easily get agar-agar sticks or flakes in any super-store. agar-agar is basically made from a sea weed. whereas gelatin is a product derived from animal bones. so for vegetarians or vegans, agar agar is a good option for making mousses or puddings. read more about agar agar here.

as a tip, always cut the agar agar sticks to small pieces with kitchen scissors. it helps in dissolving them quickly when you cook them and you get a smooth mixture.

i have used fresh pomegranate juice but you can make the same mousse with ready pomegranate juice. the mousse has a wonderful taste of the pomegranate. it is smooth and creamy, plus healthy too. in the recipe details, i have mentioned both ways of making the mousse with cashew milk and dairy milk.

ingredients (1 cup = 250 ml)

  • 2 large pomegranates - yields approx 2 cups of pomegranate arils and approx 1.25 cup juice
  • 5 to 6 tablespoon organic golden sugar or unrefined cane sugar, adjust accordingly
  • 10 to 12 strands of agar agar - approx 2 tablespoon of chopped agar-agar
  • 2 cups cashew milk or dairy milk or almond milk - check the notes below on how to make cashew milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract OR ½ vanilla bean from which the tiny vanilla seeds are scraped off

how to make pomegranate mousse recipe

  1. remove the arils from the pomegranates.
  2. reserve some for garnish.
  3. blend the arils in a blender and then strain the juice.
  4. chop the agar agar to small pieces with kitchen scissors.
  5. soak the agar agar in 1 cup water.
  6. after 5 minutes, in a saucepan, cook the agar agar-water mixture on a medium flame stirring the mixture.
  7. first boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes till the agar agar melts.
  8. the water will reduce and you should see a gelatinous liquid mixture.
  9. switch off the flame and pour the cashew/almond or dairy milk.
  10. stir and add pomegranate juice and sugar.
  11. stir again and just warm the mixture.
  12. don't heat or boil. the mixture should just get warm.
  13. don't make it hot or boil as the cashew milk will become slimy. once the cashew milk becomes warm, add vanilla powder or vanilla extract. 

  14. the dairy milk can be heated for some more time though but don't boil.
  15. when the mixture is still hot, pour in serving glasses or bowls.
  16. let the mousse cool down at room temperature.
  17. then place them in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, till the pomegranate mousse sets.
  18. garnish with some pomegranate arils or chocolate sprinkles.

In ingredients list you have mentioned vanilla powder but you have not added anywhere.. Please tell me whether it should be added..

    Thanks.

    • thanks supreetha. i have added vanilla powder and the tiny black specks on the mousse is that of vanilla powder. i forgot to add about vanilla powder in the recipe. i have updated the post. once the cashew milk becomes warm, you can add vanilla powder or vanilla extract.

  6. Hi Dassana,
    Where do you get the cane sugar and organic golden sugar from?

    • ashwini, i buy it from fab india stores. u can even place order online in their website.

  7. i love the idea of using cashew milk in this. pomegranates are a favourite too, love the taste in addition to the prettiness factor

  8. You get agar agar sticks in India? I have not found them. Got those pre-mixed Chinese grass puddings and the panacotta that I attempted was a flop! This looks lovely. Happy New Year.

    • i have been easily able to get agar agar sticks here. agar agar is better than using china grass mix for panacotta as well as puddings. i did make panacotta many times with agar agar and they set really well.

  9. Thats a very delicious mousse Dassana….Wish you happy new year

  10. Looks lovely, I need to try cashew milk in my desserts. Have a wonderful 2013, Dassana!
