HHDD #11 “Mousse”: Lemon yogurt mousse with rhubarb compote

Helen of Tartelette won the HHDD #10 “Cheesecakes” and choose Mousse for the 11th edition of Donna Hay Day, created by Barbara. Mousse is a creamy dessert typically made from egg and cream and chocolate. Mousse au chocolat to die for, but it’s got about sixty million calories. So I decided to participate with an „energy-reduced“, „weight-saving“

Delicious! My son was disappointed, that there were only two portions.

Those, who don’t have to watch their weight or pay special attention to their figure use sugar.

In a small bowl cover gelatin with water and soak for 10 minutes.

Mix together yogurt and sugar.

Remove water from gelatin, add lemon juice and cook until gelatin is dissolved. Add a few teaspoons of the yoghurt, then whisk this mixture under the remaining yoghurt. Fold in the whipped cream. Cool for about 3 h.

Meanwhile wipe the rhubarb and cut into 2.5 cm (1-inch) pieces.

Put in a saucepan, with the orange juice, or, if using an orange, the zest and juice of the fruit.

Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Sweeten to taste with artificial sweetener. This will depend on your palate and also on the natural sweetness of the fruit and juice.

Layer compote and mousse in a glass.

    Der Liebste mag ja keinen Rhabarber aber das ist ein klasse Dessert für mich – insofern sind zwei Portionen perfekt *harhar* und als artifical sweetener kann ich zuckerfreien Vanillesirup nehmen, prima! (yippie ich darf mal wieder Rhabarber essen :-))

    I left a comment a moment ago but it seems to have disappeared. I may have pressed the wrong button. I shall repeat myself and say how much I would like to try this dessert. I’m over chocolate after reading so many sweet entries – and 10 pound heavier. Thanks for joining HHDD
