Oreo Mousse Recipe – Gluten Free and Perfectly Sweet!

Yields: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Chill Time: At least 2 hours


For the Vanilla Pudding:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (dairy or your preferred non-dairy alternative)
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or vegan butter substitute)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For the Oreo Mousse:

  • 26 gluten-free Oreo cookies (or similar), roughly chopped or crushed
  • 9-ounce tub whipped topping (thawed if frozen), such as Cool Whip or a non-dairy alternative


1. Make the Vanilla Pudding:

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  • Gradually whisk in a small amount of milk to form a smooth paste. Then whisk in the egg yolks.
  • Slowly whisk in the remaining milk.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the pudding thickens (about 6 minutes). Be careful not to let it boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 2 minutes more, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in butter (or vegan butter) and vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the pudding to a bowl, cover the surface with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until completely chilled (at least 1 hour).

2. Assemble the Oreo Mousse:

  • Once the pudding is chilled, fold in the whipped topping until well combined.
  • Gently stir in the chopped or crushed gluten-free Oreos.

3. Chill and Serve:

  • Divide the mousse into individual serving dishes or glasses.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the mousse to set.
  • Garnish with additional whipped topping and Oreo crumbs, if desired.


  • Make it ahead: You can easily make this dessert a day in advance.
  • Use your favorite Oreos: There are many gluten-free Oreo varieties available, so pick your favorite flavor to customize this mousse.
  • Double-stuffed delight: If you’re a fan of extra creamy, try using double-stuffed gluten-free Oreos.

Enjoy your light, fluffy, and perfectly sweet gluten-free Oreo Mousse!
