Yoghurt and Pomegranate Mousse

Yoghurt and Pomegranate Mousse

Delicious and velvety Greek Yoghurt was combined with whipped cream and pomegranate juice to make this mousse with a very light and airy texture.

In my previous post where I made Greek yoghurt for the first time, I told you that the first time I made it, it did not set as it should and it looked more like a cream rather than a yoghurt.

It still tasted like yoghurt but what was I supposed to do with it?  Some ideas swirled in my mind and I started of thinking of ways to use it.  I could use it instead of milk and use corn starch to make a cream or I could use gelatin.  I preferred the second idea.  I love desserts with gelatin as they are so light so I started thinking of ways to  use it.

I looked in the refrigerator and I had pomegranate juice so this would be the base of my dessert.  The remaining ingredients were added in the course of making the dessert.  I added the grenadine for more colour and I used the whipped cream to make it more creamy.

Looking in my pantry I saw the mixed fruit and that would also add to the taste as well.  If I were to change something to this dessert, instead of adding the mixed fruit, I would add a Cherry compote the next time just because it would look better.  Normally I would have added all the fruit syrup but I didn’t have enough gelatin, so I just added one cup.

I would also substitute the Pomegranate juice with Homemade Pomegranate Syrup, which at the time I did not have.

You can adjust the liquid ingredients so  for every litre of liquid you will need 12 sheets of gelatin or 2 sachets equivalent to 2 tablespoons (20 grams) gelatin powder.  I did not add much sugar as the pomegranate juice, the grenadine and fruit syrup were already sweet, so this is up to you to taste and adjust.

I do not have any pictures of the preparation procedure because actually when making it I didn’t expect that it would turn out to be such a wonderful dessert, worth of posting but it turned out to have all the components of a delicious dessert.  It was beautiful in appearance and colour, it was creamy and fluffy and packed with flavour and yet so light and not sweet at all. I served it with an Eggplant spoon sweet which was made with grenadine, so the flavours matched perfectly but you can serve it with Cherry spoon sweet, or Sour Cherries spoon sweet or Cherry compote, or with other Red fruit spreads and sauces on top, such as strawberries, raspberries, plums, cranberries etc.

During the summer if you freeze it you will have a lovely sorbert.

A wonderful seasonal dessert where you could apply other fruits, depending on the time of year.
