You just need to whip the heavy cream. There's no need to drain the water from the yogurt, or use any eggs. The amount of the ingredients for this dessert, which tastes just like bavarois, is easy to remember.
Preparation: Soften the gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water. Measure all of the ingredients in advance.
Put milk and sugar in a small pan and heat to melt the sugar. Stop the heat and add the gelatin to melt. Leave to let cool.
While you are letting the milk cool, put heavy cream and sugar in a bowl and whip it up.
Whip the cream until soft peaks form. It wouldn't be a problem even if you overdo it.
Add yogurt to Step 4 and mix until it becomes smooth (It is difficult to mix completely, so it would be better to mix with a hand mixer).
Add the milk, which you let cool in Step 2, to the bowl from Step 5 a little at a time and mix gently.
It will be a little runny. It might be very runny at times (here, I am mixing it using a spatula, so it is easier to see).
Pour equal portions into glasses and chill in the refrigerator to harden. At this point, you can also top the glasses with fruit.
This is the yogurt I used this time. I love yogurt.
I used food coloring. I placed a salted cherry blossom on to make it look more spring-like.
This picture shows the yogurt mousse with slices of canned mandarin oranges inside.
The amount of sugar for the milk and heavy cream can even be the opposite amount from one another. 15 g = about 1 tablespoon, and 20 g = about 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon would be fine, too.
This is a simple one with just strawberries. You can substitute a part of the milk with strawberry puree or add matcha and make other variations too.
This is a strawberry mousse version. Add 50 g of a homemade strawberry jam to the ingredients for a more subtle flavor.
Here it is with food coloring.
This is one version with blueberry sauce.
This is another blueberry sauce version.
You can make many variations with any fruits of your choice.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made it roughly using the remaining ingredients you use to make a cake. So I tried few times to adjust the sweetness and amount of ingredients and made it properly.
There are no special tricks, since the recipe is so easy. The taste is slightly sweet. Adjust it as you like. Melt the gelatin completely. Whip up a stiff whipped cream and mix it all together well for easier preparation.
