Tuesdays with Dorie BCM: Honey-Yogurt Mousse (sort of)

honey-yogurt mousse

I had some thoughts about passing on this Honey-Yogurt Mousse. I mean, honey-sweetened Greek yogurt and whipped cream sounds delicious, but to make it a mousse, it’s stabilized with a bit of gelatin, which I don’t really care for. Then I decided, who needs the gelatin? I strained my yogurt, whipped my cream, added my honey, and had the same flavors but a softer texture. I make a jar of candied cherries every summer to put in all the cocktails I never wind up shaking or stirring at home. They tend to wind up in ice cream sundaes instead of in Manhattans…here I spooned a few into the bottom of my glass before putting the mousse on top. Light and nice…with or without the gelatin, this would be good with all kinds of fruit or (without the gelatin) even spooned over a slice of poundcake.

  1. Gelatin freaks me out too!

  2. Sounds simple and too yum!

  3. I did wonder if it needed gelatin at all too. I need to try it again without. The fluffiness makes for a more “dessert-like” texture, for sure!

  4. I love the look of your layers and your idea of using it as a topping for cake.

  5. Delicious!

  6. I just love your creativity! 🙂

  7. Yum, candied cherries is a great idea to serve with this mousse.

  8. I bet the cherries really make this over the top delicious!

  9. What a fun idea to make berry purée for ice cream and cocktails. Yum, I bet that would make a delicious champagne cocktail too. Your mousse seems to have a nice texture anyway.

  10. Gorgeous presentation! I think this would be just as good with a softer texture, so you’re not missing anything.

  11. Your dessert looks delicious. I had my reservations about this one too but we loved it. Your ideas for the cherries are spot on:)
