Summer Berry Mousse Cake

I'm going to Swansea... again.
Only this time is in summer.
I'm tired of London, so it's time for a quick escape from the city.

I made this mousse cake after the blueberry yakult cheesecake.
Top with a layer of raspberry yogurt mousse for a variation.
Also, I prefer to have chewy blueberries :)
Recipe (6" square):
Crust
80 g digestive biscuit crumbs
30 g molten butter

Mix the ingredients & bake in an oven at 150C for 15 min.
After cooling, press into a 6" round pan.

Blueberry Compote
150 g frozen blueberries

In a saucepan, combine half of the blueberries with sugar.
Cook over medium heat until the berries have softened.
Blueberry Mousse
100 g cream cheese
30 g sugar
85 g whipping cream
40 g yogurt
65 g Yakult
65 g blueberry compote
7 g gelatine leaves

Bloom gelatine in cold water, dissolve in blueberry compote.
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese & sugar, beat until smooth.
Add in Yakult & yogurt, blend gently until smooth.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks, combine with the cheese batter.
Fold in the blueberry compote.
Fill the prepared pan & refrigerate to set.

Raspberry Yogurt Mousse
170 g frozen raspberries
30 g sugar
125 g whipping cream
4 g gelatine leaves
50 g yogurt

Bloom gelatine in cold water.
Make a raspberry puree using a blender, strain the mixture in a bowl to remove the solids.
Dissolve gelatine in raspberry puree.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks, combine with the yogurt then the puree.
Pour over the blueberry mousse & refrigerate to set.

Assembling
After refrigerating, remove the mould carefully & top with the blueberry compote.

  5. This looks and sounds amazing. What is Yakult? I've never heard of it--or maybe I have and it's called something different.

    I found you via Tastespotting and am your newest follower. I hope you'll come visit me at Katie's Cucina! :)
