Luscious Lemon Mousse and Orange Jello {Trim Healthy Mama S Dessert}

I saw this amazing dessert on my Facebook wall a few weeks ago and thought Wow I need to give that a go.  I wonder how on earth I can make it Trim Healthy Mama compatible ? After a little bit of tweaking and experimenting I made the following version.

Orange Jello

  • 2 Peach Tea Bags (I used Tetley brand)
  • 500 ml boiling water
  • Trim Healthy Mama sweetener of your choice.  I used a blend of xylitol, erthritol and stevia. 
  • Optional: 2000mg Vitamin C
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup almost boiling water
  • Steep the tea bags in the boiling water.  Leave it on the bench to cool.
  • Soak the Vit C in a little bit of water to soften and dissolve.
  • Remove the tea bags once the tea has cooled and add in the vit C. (This is optional)
  • Add in enough sweetener to taste.
  • In another cup add in a 1/4 cup of cold water and sprinkle in the gelatin. Set aside to soften.
  • Add in 1/4 cup of nearly boiling water to the gelatin and stir until well mixed.
  • Pour gelatin liquid into the orange mix.  Stir till well combined.
  • Pour half a cup of liquid into each glass.  Lie on it's side and put it into the fridge until firmly set. I used a rectangle plastic container to lay the glasses in.
  • Once the jello/jelly has set it's time to make the Luscious Lemon Mousse.

Luscious Lemon Mousse

I tweaked Key Lime Pie recipe from the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on page 326. You will find the balance of the ingredients there.  I got the idea for this mousse from Gwen's Luscious Lemon Yogurt Recipe.

  • 1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ml Lemon oil (I used Simply Organic)
  • Dash of Turmeric 
  • Yellow food dye
Follow the recipe found on page 326 substituting the lime juice with lemon and adding in lemon oil and turmeric. Follow the directions and pour into the glasses and put into the fridge to set.

Once it is set put some fresh cream on the top and serve.
