Pomegranate-Strawberry Mousse

By J Kate

If you're using fresh strawberries, buy a couple of extras to use as a garnish for the mousse.

Pomegranate-Strawberry Mousse
Ingredients
  • 10 ounces fresh or thawed frozen strawberries (about 2 cups)

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin

  • 1/2 cup pomegranate juice

  • 1 7-ounce container 2% Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions
  1. n a food processor, puree the strawberries with the salt. (Leave the puree in the processor.)

  2. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup of the pomegranate juice. Let stand until softened

  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1/4 cup pomegranate juice and the sugar, and bring to a simmer to dissolve the sugar. Stir the softened gelatin into the saucepan and cook over very low heat, stirring, until the gelatin is dissolved, about 1 minute.

  4. Add the gelatin mixture to the strawberry puree and process until well combined. Add the yogurt and process briefly just to blend.

  5. Spoon into dessert bowls or glasses, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours or until chilled and set.

  6. Use xylitol or splenda in place of the sugar to lower the carb count even more.

The recipe came for the Eating Well website and was developed by a dibetes nutritionist. All of the nutritional facts are as listed on Eating Well. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of sugar, not 1 cup and it is suggested to use a sugar substitute.

I'm trying this tonight for my family. Just a word of caution, the nutritional information for this recipe is off. It says it is for 4 servings, but it one cup of sugar has about 50 carbs, then already one serving is over the 11 carbs indicated. And that doesn't even include the carbs for the juice or strawberries. I think the recipe looks great and I will be happy to report back. But it is disappointing that on a site like this, the carb counts cannot be trusted. For people with less experience, they wouldn't question the nutritional information and in the case of diabetics with Type 1, they need to make really important decisions - like how much insulin to give — based on the information provided here. :(
