Berry and Yogurt Mousse

Hi Everyone!
First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for "liking" and sharing our page on Facebook and Pinterest!!
This week's recipe is the start of a new road we are taking, the road without chocolate! But don't worry, chocolate lovers around the world..... we'll still post plenty of recipes with the best thing in the world...CHOCOLATE! From now on, every month the recipes will vary from lot's of chocolate to no chocolate at all..! In this way, we can satisfy everyone!

 For our first recipe without chocolate, I chose to make a recipe with two other ingredients I really like: yogurt and berries! When I'm home and looking for something good to eat and fast to make I always end up with a mug full of yogurt, cereal and whatever berries I have in the fridge. For this reason, I decided to make a recipe that had these ingredients.

The original recipe asks for whole yogurt, but I opted for the low fat one because some of my readers asked me to once in a while post lighter recipes.  For the berries, I used frozen ones, but you can use fresh ones if you want. In my frozen mix there were blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and cranberries, but you can also just use strawberries or the ones that you prefer.

So, let's get started!

Ingredients
- 8g Gelatin
- 250g Low fat Yogurt
- 125g Powdered Sugar
- 100mL Lime Juice
- 120g Berries
- 290g Fresh Cream

Before Everything
- Set aside the molds for the mousse.
- Boil the lemon juice and let it cool down.

Preparation
1- Put the gelatin in cold water for 15 minutes.
2- Wash the berries and dry them with paper towel while you are working on the recipe.
3- Mix the yogurt with the powdered sugar and then mix it with the lime juice.
4- Take the gelatin out of the cold water and squeeze the water out of it.
Now, you have two choices: 
4.1-Put the gelatin to melt in the microwave for 10 seconds.
or
4.2- Heat up the yogurt mix just a little bit (between 35-65°C), and the gelatin will melt when you put inside of it.
5- Whip the fresh cream (medium speed), until you start to see lines on top of it. Whip for one more minute. Now fold it with the yogurt and gelatin mix.
6- Add the berries and put the mousse in the desired molds. I used silicon molds, but if you want, you can use individual aluminum molds or just a big one for all the mousse.
7- Put in the fridge for 8 hours. If you are in a hurry, you can put it in the freezer for 4 hours and take it out 1 hour before serving.
Enjoy!
