Orange Mousse

Posted February 24th, 2011 in Food No Comments »

I made this orange mousse on the BBQ (post is here), and everyone loved it.  I had made cheese cake as dessert already, but in the morning I thought I would make one more dessert.

This mousse is such easy to make, and you can actually use bottled orange juice you have in your fridge – if you don’t have any fresh oranges.  That’s what I used, and it tasted as good.

<Orange Mousse> makes about 2L

  • 200ml water
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 13g gelatine (powder) + 2tbs water
  • 240ml orange juice (100%)
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • 30ml cointreau (optional)
  • 340ml fresh cream
  1. Soak gelatine in 2 tbs water.  Whip the cream to the soft peak.
  2. Place water and sugar in a sauce pan, and simmer over medium-low heat, while stirring with a silicon spatula, till the sugar dissolves.  Turn off the heat, and add the gelatine.  Stir well to blend.
  3. Transfer the gelatine mixture into a mixing bowl.  Add orange juice, lemon juice and cointreau, and mix.
  4. Place the bowl over iced water.  Stir until the mixture become slightly thicken (but not until the gelatine sets).
  5. Mix the whipped cream to the mixture.  Blend well.
  6. Pour the mixture into a mould, and keep in the fridge until it sets.

It’s a perfect dessert in summer.  Enjoy with orange coulis, whipped cream, or fresh fruits!
