hi friends! I made you healthy dessert!!! can you believe it??
ok so lets get real. this may not actually be healthy….but it has greek yogurt and plums so that counts right? in my mind it totally counts. for me anything with fruit or vegetables is healthy, completely logical? no? what do you mean no?
this dessert is healthier than most, the mouse is light and airy and the plums still have a bite. for me it’s a gorgeous light dessert for those nights when you want something sweet but don’t want a heavy dessert or pudding.
we are having friends over for dinner this weekend and i am making this for dessert. it is perfect for dinner parties as both the mousse and the plums can be made up to a day in advance and kept covered in the fridge. that said these will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge.
greek yogurt mousse with balsamic roasted plums
greek yogurt mousse
- 2 cups greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup thickened cream
- 1/4 cup vanilla syrup
balsamic roasted plums
- 3 plums
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 10 grams butter
- 1 tablespoon caramelised balsamic vinegar
place a sieve over a bowl and line the sieve with a double layer of cheesecloth leave a few inches of excess around the sides. scoop the greek yogurt into the sieve and fold the excess cheesecloth over the top, then place in the fridge over night.
the next morning, whip the cream to soft peaks, then scoop in the strained yogurt, beat on high for 1 minute until thick, gently pour in the vanilla syrup and beat until well mixed. the mousse will be light and thick but will not hold a peak.
divide the mousse between 4 serving bowls or glasses and refrigerate for 2 hours or until very cold.
preheat the oven to 180 and line a tray with baking paper. cut the plums in half and remove the seeds.
place the plums cut side up on the tray, sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the plums, place pieces of butter over the plums then drizzle with the balsamic vinegar
bake for 20 minutes or until golden and just soft. allow to cool before placing on top of mousse, serve and enjoy!
