Raspberry Lemon Mousse

 

I am kicking off my October of real food, mostly grain free, low sugar treats with this easy 5 minute concoction that could find its way to a breakfast table, snack time, and of course, dessert.  Technically this is a mock mousse, as it isn't made from whipped cream or egg whites. I don't really have a better name for this treat and honestly my mouth doesn't really care what it is called. The raspberry seeds and the ricotta make the mousse raw and a little coarse to go with the creamy, while the tangy lemon enhances the sweet raspberries. Very easy and definately yummy.

 Raspberry Lemon Mousse

 

15oz whole milk ricotta

2 TBSP sour cream

1 TBSP lemon juice

zest from half a lemon

1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries (you can use fresh, but you might want to chill the dish before serving)

2 egg yolks from pastured hens (you can add two additional yolks without losing the consistancy, if you want more nutrition)

Liquid stevia to taste (I used about 5 drops of SweetLeaf, but add this last so you can taste and adjust)

 

I use an immersion (handheld) blender, so I just toss everything into a bowl and whirl it into a fluffy mousse like consistency. A blender or food processer should work as well, but then clean up isn't quite as easy.

Yummy Healthier Treats

With October here the season of candy and treats has officially begun. It can be hard to make good food choices when there is candy, cakes, and chocolate everywhere. I find having some really good sweet treat recipes on hand makes eating real food so much easier. If I know I can have something sweet and indulgent at home I can pass on the store bought junk. So for the month of October I am going to focus on homemade treats that offer some nutritional value and don't send my body on a sugar roller coaster. Lots of grain free stuff, lots of healthy fats, and just a little bit of non-refined sugar and stevia. I look forward to a fall full of lovely and delicious treats without all the chemicals and crud!
