Yogurt is an ingredient which we can use in many different ways. This recipe is an example of how yogurt can be turned into a deliciously refreshing dessert.
1 envelope (1 tbs) unflavored gelatin or 1 gelatin sheet
2 cups sour cherry pureed lightly
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 pot plain yogurt (unsweetened)
250 ml well-chilled heavy cream
- In a small saucepan sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water, let it soften for 1 minute and heat the mixture over a low heat stirring until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Blend together the sour cherry puree, the sugar and the vanilla, add the gelatin mixture and blend the mixture well. Transfer it to a bowl and stir in the yogurt.
- Beat the cream in a chilled until it forms stiff peaks. Fold it into the cherry mixture gently but thoroughly; and either divide the mousse among 4 dessert glasses or put into a big glass bowl.
- Chill the mousse for at least 4 hours or overnight. Garnish with the drained sour cherry preserve.
