Orange Mousse

One of my favourite desserts of all times is a chocolate mousse (for the recipe click here). Here is a bit different variation, made with oranges. Light and fluffy, makes a nice refreshing dessert, perfect end to your low carb meal. You may add splash of orange liquor (such as Contreau or grand manier) to give it an indulgent kick.

Ingredients (make 8 small glasses):
  • 4 sheets of leaf gelatine
  • zest of 2 oranges, juice of 1
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 100g erythritol (powdered)
  • 300ml double cream

  • Soak the gelatine in cold water to soften it. Heat the orange juice in the microwave for 30 sec. Squeeze the excess water from the gelatine, add to the hot juice and stir to dissolve. Set aside to cool.
  • Put the egg yolks, erytritol and orange zest into a bowl and whisk over a saucepan of hot water for 10 mins until thick and foamy. Remove from the heat and continue whisking until completely cool.
  • Fold the gelatine and orange mix into the egg yolk mixture. In separate bowls, whisk the egg whites and cream until both are softly stiff, then gently fold into the orange mix. Spoon into 8 glasses and chill until set. Decorate with slice of orange. The mousse can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Enjoy :)
