Creamy Orange Mousse
Fluffy, dreamy, vanilla-scented, Creamy Orange Mousse is as easy as whipping cream and stirring in a few things. Simple enough for every day, impressive enough for entertaining.
- 1 1/4 cups Florida Orange Juice divided
- 1 tablespoon unflavoured gelatin
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 6 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- zest of one orange
- orange slices for garnish
Measure 1/4 cup of the Florida Orange Juice into a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice. Set aside for 10 minutes to bloom.
In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment or in a bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the whipping cream and confectioner's sugar until it reaches firm peaks. Whisk in the remaining orange juice, the vanilla extract, and orange zest. Place the bowl with the bloomed gelatin in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds or until liquified. Do not allow it to boil. Stir well, pour into the whipped cream mixture along with the remaining orange juice, vanilla extract, and orange zest, and whisk until evenly distributed.
Divide into individual serving dishes or scoop into a square cake pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Garnish individual servings with a slice of orange.
