A little snow and sun in a glass – Yogurt mousse with mango vanilla compote
Un peu de neige et de soleil dans un verre – Mousse de yaourt à la compote de mangue et vanille
Did it ever happen to you to really want a dessert but just something light, refreshing and fruity? no chocolate, no cake, no cream, just a light dessert? Well today that’s what I really wanted. I had two beautiful mangos that I would have preferred to eat fresh, sliced and not cook it, but I needed a nice fleshy and sweet fruit for my mousse, so I killed those two mangos with a lot of regrets. They were so sweet that I did not add any sugar.
I love fruit based dessert and this one is a winner. If you are trying to watch your weight, but still have a little craving for something sweet, this is perfect for you. It has very low calories, I used the non fat Greek yogurt “Page”, you could use the 2% fat also.
Ingredients for 4 verrines (glass cups)
- 1/2 lb Greek-style yogurt (non fat or regular)
- 2 tbs powder sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tbs almond milk
- 2 gelatin sheet
- 2 ripe mangos
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 vanilla bean
Mix yogurt with sugar, beat well. Heat almond milk and soak gelatin sheet in it and add to the yogurt. Mix well. Beat egg whites and add to the yogurt mixture. Place in the refrigerator
Peel the mango and cook at low heat. Cut vanilla bean and scrape beans, add to the mango, add lemon juice. Cook until the mango are cooked and make a jam-like mixture. Let it cool, then add on top of the yogurt mousse. Place in refrigerator overnight or at least for 6 hours to enable the mousse to thicken.
