Berry jelly yogurt mousse cups

3 Jan
We have just very excitedly received our order of Great Lakes Gelatine powder from iherb!!
I am now on a mission to try to find as many ways as possible to get my little one to eat it!!.

Gelatine is so good for you, especially the grass-fed kind that the Great Lakes folks make.
  • It is great for your skin, hair & nail growth
  • Good for lubricating your joints
  • Can help tighten up loose skin (YAY)
  • Improves digestion since it naturally binds to water & helps food move through your system easily
  • There’s a crazy rumour it helps cellulite
  • It is a great source of collagen (younger looking skin here I come!)
  • A great source of protein & amino acids (just if the no cellulite & younger looking skin didn’t work for you!!)
 For More information on the wonders of gelatine visit the Weston A Price Foundation for the full low down on why you should be adding it to your diet.
If you too want to try some Great Lakes Gelatine powder although I am an Aussie I do recommend ordering it from Iherb in the US as it is half the price that I could find it locally & the shipping rates are insane at $8 for 8 pounds shipped to Australia!!. The following link will get you a discount of $5 to $10 off your first order depending on the amount you spend. http://www.iherb.com/?rcode=PFR484
This was our first attempt at introducing gelatine & it was a hit, even though my daughter can be a little weird about different textured foods. I have to say I ate two, one for the cellulite & one for the collagen that is going to reverse the clock!!

Berry Jelly Yoghurt Mousse Cups a’la Mama Going Natural
  • 1 & a 1/2 t great lakes gelatine powder
  • 1 c blueberries
  • 1/8 c water
  • 1/2 t stevia
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • 1 c yoghurt
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • 1/2 t stevia
  • 2 T hot water
  • 1 & a 1/2 t great lakes gelatine
  • Granola mix

To make the fruit jelly:

Place blue berries & water in a saucepan & cook over a medium heat until the blueberries are cooked & the water has turned into a syrup. Add stevia & vanilla to taste. Turn heat down to low & add 1 & a 1/2 teaspoons of gelatine & stir in till fully dissolved (this may take a few minutes). Pour jelly into cups, bowls or moulds & set aside to cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

To make the yogurt mouse:

Once the jelly has set make the yoghurt mousse by placing 2 T of hot water & 1 & a 1/2 t of gelatine into a bowl, stir well to dissolve the gelatine then add the yoghurt, stevia & vanilla essence & whisk well with a stick blender till you get an airy mousse like consistency. Pour on top of the set jelly & leave to set again in the refrigerator.

Once the mousse has set & your ready to serve, pour a tablespoon of your pre-made granola on top of each one for a nice little burst of crunch & enjoy 🙂

    Although vegan and fully not intending to follow you down the gelatine pathway, I respect your right to eat whatever you like and love the idea of those set pots. I would have to do some serious fandangling to get similar results but I think using agar and my homemade non-dairy kefir might just do the trick to get similar results. We can agree to disagree about certain aspects of the Paleo diet but we both agree that we are going to end up healthier than anyone sticking to a modern day diet 😉

      I am sure with coconut yoghurt or coconut kefir & some agar agar you can make something equally delicious & with the added benefit of sea minerals 🙂

        I recently made a delicious yoghurt using 2 cans of coconut cream, 2 large mangoes and 2 large very ripe pears all blended together till smooth and then cultured with some of my non-dairy kefir and it was absolutely magnificent and a most worthy yoghurt replacement. I guess necessity really IS the mother of invention 😉
