French Vanilla Flavors
If you love mousse, this easy French Vanilla Mousse will be fun to make. To me, French vanilla has a much more intense vanilla flavor that is hard to beat. I did use a vanilla bean in this recipe. You just need to scrape the seeds and add them into the whipped cream. You can also use vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract.

How do you thicken mousse without gelatin?
For this recipe, I didn’t want to use gelatin. The best way to thicken mousse without gelatin is to make sure your whipped cream forms stiff peaks when you whip it.
How long do you refrigerate mousse?
I recommend you refrigerate this mousse for at least two hours. You can put it into the freezer for 45 minutes to one hour if you would like it to chill faster.
