Orange Mousse

Hi, hello, how’s it going?  I hope you’re good. 

I am.  I’m eating this right now and it’s making me feel soooo good.  Food shouldn’t be a reward, you say? Don’t worry, it’s not.  I haven’t done anything at all exceptional today to deserve this dish of deliciousness.

I can’t not share the recipe, and I absolutely can’t not make this again. 

It’s melt-in-your-mouth citrusy bliss.

Orange Mousse

1 pkg (7g) gelatin
2/3 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup yogurt (I used 0% vanilla Greek yogurt)
1/3 cup sugar
2 T orange liqueur (optional)
Zest of 1-2 oranges
1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks

In a small saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over the orange juice.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Stir over medium-low heat for 1 minute, until dissolved.

Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the yogurt, sugar, liqueur, and orange zest.  Gently fold in the whipped cream.

Spoon into pretty little dishes (martini glasses look fabulous!) and refrigerate for an hour, or until set.



About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
