I make this raspberry mousse every year when raspberries are in season. You want to use ripe and sweet berries. Adjust sugar amount accordingly.

  • Pour orange juice into a small saucepan and sprinkle gelatin on top. Set aside for 1 minute. Heat over low temperature without boiling until gelatin is fully dissolved, about 3 minutes.

  • Remove from stove, allow to cool slightly and mix with raspberry puree.

  • Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl using an electric mixer until frothy. Add vanilla sugar gradually, continuing to beat until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into raspberry puree. Stir in lemon juice and sweeten with more confectioners' sugar if desired. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Garnish with raspberries.

Make sure you use gelatin. I tried using pectin instead, as it's all my grocery had available, and it went flat quite quickly. Read More

4.15.19 What a lovely recipe. Made this exactly as written and I wouldn t change a thing. The fresh raspberry flavor is delicate and fruity the texture is silky and spot-on perfect for mousse and the level of sweetness is just right not overpowering. Without question this is an indulgence in this house but I wanted to make a special dessert for my husband s birthday and this didn t disappoint. This is an exquisite dessert suitable for any special dinner. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More
