Ready In:




  • 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. We really enjoyed this! It's so light and refreshing. I think the sauce really made it extra special. I used blueberries instead of strawberries because my daughter is allergic to them. She thinks this should be called blueberry puffy fluff :) I also used 1/2 cup of splenda instead of the sugar. I added 1/4 cup splenda to the sauce to sweeten it up, too. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to whip the cream or not but I went ahead and whipped it. This is so easy to do and looks really pretty when served. I got a "WOW" from my little girl when I put it in front of her. Thanks Boomette! Made for 123 Hit Wonders game
  5. Boomette, this was so good! The mousse itself was very easy to make as was the sauce. I might try adding 1/8 cup sugar to the sauce next time I make it, just to make it a little sweeter. Tell your Aunt thank you. Made this for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders game 2007


  1. Lovely dessert, I might try using sour cream in place of the yogurt next time, I used Greek yogurt and I think it was a bit overpowering in this recipe, also it needs a lot more sugar than what is stated this is fairly easy to make and was thoroughly enjoyed, thanks for sharing Boomette!...Kitten
