1. Can I substitute peanut butter with other nut or seed butters?

Absolutely. While peanut butter offers a distinct flavor, if there are allergy concerns or if you simply want to experiment, almond, cashew, or sunflower seed butter can be suitable substitutes. Just remember, always introduce new nuts or seeds slowly to monitor for allergies.

2. How can I ensure the texture is safe for my baby?

Ensure the mousse is velvety and without lumps. You can achieve this by using a fine sieve or a mesh strainer after blending, and before serving. Always check the consistency before giving it to your little one.

3. Is there a vegan alternative for this mousse?

Certainly! Replace any dairy ingredients with their vegan counterparts such as coconut cream or almond milk. There are also vegan gelatin substitutes available, like agar-agar, which can help get the desired consistency.

4. How long can I store the Peanut Butter Mousse?

For optimal freshness, store the mousse in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Ensure it’s kept at a consistent cool temperature.
