Orange chocolate yogurt mousse

BT Calgary | posted Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

This sweet and tangy mousse made with yogurt is a deliciously easy way to add a special touch to a weekday lunch.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooling: 3 hours
Servings: 4


  • 2 tsp (10 mL) unflavoured gelatin powder
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) unsweetened orange juice
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups (500 mL) 2% plain yogurt
  • 1 orange, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) shaved dark chocolate


  1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over orange juice; let stand for 5 minutes until gelatin is softened.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cocoa powder, breaking up any lumps of cocoa.
  3. Whisk cocoa mixture into saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes or until gelatin is dissolved.
  4. Pour into a medium heatproof bowl, cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour or until almost set.
  5. Using an electric mixer, beat gelatin until light and foamy.
  6. Beat in yogurt, just until blended.
  7. Pour into individual serving bowls, cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until set, or for up to 1 day.
  8. To serve, garnish each bowl with orange slices and shaved chocolate.

To make this a semi-freddo (partially-frozen) dessert, use freezer safe serving bowls and freeze the mousse for about 4 hours, or freeze solid and transfer to the refrigerator 1 hour before serving.
