A recipe that comes from one of my aunt. I did it a few times when I was living with my parents.
- 1 (1/4 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
- 0.5 (1/4 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
- 3 cups strawberries, thawed, drained (but keep the syrup)
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- In a bowl, dissolve the gelatin in 1/4 cup of the strawberry syrup you kept. Let sit 5 minutes.
- Put the bottom of the bowl in hot water until the gelatin is dissolved completely. Incorporate strawberries and yogurt. Set aside.
- In another bowl, whisk cream and sugar. Add it to the strawberries when the gelatin begins to set.
- Pour in dessert dish bowls. Put in the fridge.
- Strawberry sauce : Add enough water to the remaining strawberry syrup to obtain 1 cup of liquid.
- Pour in a casserole. Let heat at low setting. Add the cornstarch mixed in a little bit of water. Stir until thick. Add the orange zest. Let cool down. Divide the mixture equally into the dessert dish bowls already in the fridge.
This hit the spot on a hot summer night. I used fresh strawberries and splenda but followed the rest of the recipe as written. We all enjoyed this.
This is a very creamy and tasty dessert. I used fresh strawberries (which a pint was all I needed), and I think it was a great use of those strawberries. This will be a great dessert to try in the middle of winter, when I am craving some of those sweet summer fruits, and just use frozen berries. Thanks, Boomette! Made for "Gimme 5" tag game.
Wonderful mousse! The yoghurt really makes it special - light texture with a hint of milky-tart. Strawberries were on special the other day and this was a great way for me to use up a pint. Thanks, France.
