Eggless Pomegranate Mousse | Easy No Bake Recipes

I love mousse! Well, who doesn't! I love the silky soft texture of a mousse. I normally don't make mousse with eggs since most mousse recipes add raw eggs and I am not comfortable eating un cooked eggs. 
This recipe has no eggs and still tastes fabulous! We had lots of pomegranates at home and no one was interested in eating them so I went about making some pomegranate juice, pomegranate milkshake and then this mousse. All were awesome!





POMEGRANATE MILKSHAKE
Preparation time - 15 mins | Cooking time 8 hours | Serving - 4 dessert bowls
Recipe Category - Dessert | Recipe Cuisine - World

Ingredients
  • Pomegranate juice - 1 cup
  • Whipping cream - 1/ 2 cup
  • Sugar - 2 tbsp (add more if needed)
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Gelatin -  2 tsp [or] Agar agar powder 2 tsp 
  • Water - 5 tbsp


Here are some other mousse recipes


Method
1. Add the gelatin to 5 tbsp of water and let it bloom for 5 minutes. Then microwave for 30 seconds and let it sit till it cools down. It will become a clear solution.



2. Blend about 2 cups of pomegranate arils (seeds) with sugar and strain to get 1 cup of juice.
3. Add the vanilla extract and whip the 1/2 cup of cream to stiff peaks. The cream will double in volume and give you 1 cup of cream.



4. Now pour the pomegranate juice in the whipped cream and whip again until it blends together.
5. Add the cooled gelatin mixture and mix again.



6. Pour into moulds and let it set for 4-6 hours.




Notes
1. If you want to use this as a filling for cakes, cook the pomegranate juice with sugar until the sugar dissolves and then add the bloomed gelatin to this and proceed with the rest of the steps. This will make the mousse more firm and sets well.



Until next time,
