Orange and Apricot Mousse

Orange and Apricot Mousse

Posted 2018-07-27 by finyfollow

Once again I wanted a dessert with no added sugar.

This one fits the bill, though I DID put a tiny bit of agave syrup in.

It is a light mousse which is great for those on a low fat diet.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus 30 minutes in fridge
Cooking Time: No cooking
Serves: 4

Ingredients
1 orange
1 700 g tin or jar apricots in natural juice, drained
12½ g gelatine
70 g yogurt, plain
1 egg white
Extra orange rind, optional, to decorate

Method
  • Grate the rind of just under half of the orange.

  • Cut the orange in half, and squeeze out the juice.

  • Put the drained apricots, and all but 1½ tbsp of orange juice, and the rind, into a food processor or similar and puree until it is smooth. If using sweetener, add this before processing.


  • Pour it into a bowl and leave.

  • Sprinkle the gelatine over the remaining orange juice in a small bowl and allow it to stand until hydrated - this only takes a few minutes.
  • It is hydrated and no liquid left


  • Put this gelatine mixture over a pan of hot water, and leave to dissolve, when it will get clear. Mine did not dissolve so I put it over heat for a short time.

  • If there are any lumps left, take them out.
  • One lump did not dissolve, so I removed this


  • Stir this gelatine mixture into the apricot puree, along with the yogurt.

  • Mix it well to blend fairly evenly.


  • Put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until it is partly set.

  • Beat the egg whites till they form peaks. Fold these egg whites carefully but thoroughly, into the partially set apricot mixture, using a metal spoon.

  • Divide the mousse into serving dishes and put into the fridge until completely set.


  • Easy, and unusual - serve with thickened cream!
