Lemon Yogurt Mousse (Non Fat)

Recipe by justcallmetoni
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a medium bowl, quickly whisk together the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. (Do not strain the yogurt as the whey helps maintain the right consistency and flavor.).
  • Place the gelatin in a small bowl and add the warm water. Allow this to sit so that the gelatin gets dissolved.
  • To prepare the meringue, create a double boiler using a saucepan and bowl that will set securely over the pan. Fill saucepan half way with water and bring to boil over medium heat. Combine egg whites, salt, and sugar in the bowl which will become the top portion of the double boiler . Mix the eggs, salt and sugar a bit until mixed. Place the egg whites onto the bottom of the boiler or saucepan with water. Whisk the egg whites until light, fluffy and foamy and the sugar is fully dissolved. Fold in the dissolved gelatin from step 2.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and whisk with an electric mixer (using the proper attachment if you have it). Whip the egg mixture until the eggs are cooled, using the sides of the bowl as your gauge. Be careful not to overmix or the eggs mixed with the gelatin will coagulate.
  • Quickly pour the yogurt into the eggs in a stream, folding the two mixtures together. Again, if you fold too slowly the mix will begin to thicken too early.
  • Divide the mousse into eight serving bowls or glasses. Cover each with plastic wrap and place in the icebox until you are ready to serve.
  • Note: This can be made up to a day ahead of serving.
