In Greek: μους γιαούρτι, say: moos yeeah-OOR-tee

Use this fabulous mousse to create parfaits, as a topping on cakes and shortbreads, and as a dessert on its own, topped with fruit syrups or spoon sweets.


  • 3/4 teaspoons of unflavored granulated gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons of hot water (tap water)
  • 2 cups of whipping cream (heavy cream)
  • 3 level tablespoons of confectioner's sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups of thick Greek yogurt *


Dissolve gelatin in hot water.

Make the whipped cream: Beat together cream and sugar until the thick and stiff.

In a separate bowl, combine the dissolved gelatin with the yogurt and mix to combine thoroughly.

With a spatula, fold yogurt mixture into to the whipped cream and combine gently but thoroughly.

Refrigerate until ready to use.
