I have been craving citrus fruits lately, especially lemons and limes. Maybe it is the lack of sunshine or I just need the extra Vitamin C and the vibrant color!
I love all, or okay maybe most, desserts:) But I also do enjoy making healthier and lighter desserts for a change.
This dessert is just perfect light and refreshing, served in half of a orange, a pretty little thing!
- 1tbsp unflavoured gelatine
- 2tsp grated organic orange rind
- 1/2cup fresh orange juice
- 2/3cup sugar, honey or coconut sugar
- 2tbsp butter
- 2cups plain greek yogurt
- 2 oranges
-Cut oranges in halve, use the juice for the recipe, remove meat carefully to keep the orange halves unbroken.
-In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatine over orange juice and let soften one minute.
-Add sugar, orange rind and butter.
-Heat, slowly stirring until gelatine dissolves. Transfer mixture to a metal bowl to completely cool (you can sit bowl in a large bowl filled with ice to speed cooling). Stir until mixture is the texture of raw egg whites. Whisk yogurt into orange mixture.
-Spoon mousse into four orange halves (there will be some leftover). Chill for at least 30 minutes to set, or longer.
-Optional: at serving time, top with some whipped cream.
