Yogurt Mousse with Grapefruit Gelée

Yogurt Mousse with Grapefruit Gelée

This yogurt mousse has meringue mixed in. I used a juicy grapefruit gelée to top a melt-in-your-mouth mousse.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Grapefruit gelée:
★ Water
150 ml
★ White wine
40 ml
★ Granulated sugar
60 g
5 g
Yogurt mousse:
Plain yogurt
200 g
Heavy whipping cream
100 ml
Egg white
Granulated sugar
30 g
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
5 g
Warm water for dissolving gelatin
3 tablespoons


1. Make the grapefruit gelée. Peel and segment the grapefruit.
2. Add all the ★ ingredients in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Add the grapefruit and simmer it over low heat for 15 minutes. (The pulp starts to separate.)
3. Turn off the heat and sprinkle in the gelatin while still hot and stir well. (The end product should be about 250-300 ml.)
4. Pour into a shallow container. Once it is cooled, chill it in the refrigerator until solid.
5. Make the yogurt mousse. In a bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form or until creamy.
6. In a separate bowl, make the meringue by beating the egg white while adding the granulated sugar in 2 to 3 batches until stiff peaks form.
7. Dissolve the gelatin in the warm water. In another bowl, add the yogurt and add the gelatin and mix well.
8. In the bowl from Step 7, add the whipped cream and the lemon juice and stir well.
9. Gently fold in the meringue with a rubber spatula. (Try not to crush the meringue if possible.)
10. Pour into the containers and chill in the refrigerator.
11. Once the gelée and the mousse are solid, cut the gelée into small pieces with a knife. Place on top of the mousse and it is done.
12. I garnished with an optional grapefruit compote.
