Blackberry Foolish Moose
So simple, this dessert was named after a simple, Maine animal.......better not go there but suffice it to say, this "moose" is easy to make and super creamy and sweet without added sugar. This is a perfect first recipe for a classic mousse for those of you who have never prepared mousse before.
For 4 Serving(s)
- 3 cups fresh blackberries(See NOTE)
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 2 (.25-ounce) envelopes plain gelatin
- 2 cups whipped topping
Blackberry Foolish Moose Directions
- Add blackberries and juices to a food processor or blender and puree, on high, until as smooth as possible. Strain through a wire-mesh strainer into a medium saucepan, pressing the pulp against the sides to extract as much juice as possible. You will end up with about 2 cups.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat. While mixture is boiling, lightly sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid, whisking at the same time. Do this slowly or the gelatin will clump up.
- Continue whisking vigorously and cooking an additional minute.
- Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until cooled and starting to thicken.
- Remove from refrigerator and whisk in whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate until set and completely cold.
- Makes about 4 servings
- NOTE: Yes, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries are equally delicious as a substitute in this recipe.
