If you love a light mousse, this easy French Vanilla Mousse will be fun to make 🙂

Mousse is one of those desserts that looks fancy, but it works perfectly for any occasion.

I have to admit, I almost feel guilty sharing this mousse recipe with you. This creamy mousse is so easy to make, it only has 3 simple ingredients. Top this mousse any way you like, with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, or just enjoy it plain like our family did! You may consider pinning this recipe now so you don’t lose track of where you saw it :-).

Just in case your family loves mousse like mine does, try this Fresh Raspberry Mousse recipe. It is hands down one of the most popular mousse recipes on my blog. This Miso Caramel Mousse is fun and uses miso in a totally different way!

We hope you love this easy 3 ingredient French vanilla mousse as much as our family did.

When I was asked if I could create a recipe using International Delight® Coffee Creamer, I knew right away what type of recipe you would love. I feel like I know you, my reader, and I can say with 99.9% certainty that you have a sweet tooth! These creamers are full of vanilla flavor, which really shines through in this mousse recipe. International Delight® comes in so many flavors, but I chose to use the French Vanilla and Cold Stone Creamery™ Sweet Cream for this post. I could only choose one of these flavors for my mousse.

It was really hard to decide which flavor creamer to use in this mousse recipe.

We narrowed it down to taste tests :-).

My kids were very willing participants and judges! We made this mousse with both flavors of creamer. They both were really good, but the French Vanilla flavors really came through, making it the perfect flavor choice to use in this easy mousse recipe!

These creamers will take your boring cup of coffee to a whole new level of deliciousness! And I love the new half gallon bottle shapes make pouring so easy. They are easy to grip, and no spills because the spout is open the perfect width for easy pouring.

Making a mousse is not hard to make. Let me show you how easy this mousse is to make for dessert.

How to make vanilla mousse.

Put in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to chill.

Pipe into glassware, a bowl, a mug, or any fun single serve dish.

Top any way you like! While I was creating this recipe (and eating it!), I couldn’t resist drinking a cup of coffee with the Cold Stone Creamery flavor.
