Rhubarb berry mousse
(at time of publication)
- 300g rhubarb, trimmed weight
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons gelatine
- 5 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons custard powder
- 1 ½ cups trim milk
- 200g berry yoghurt
- ½ cup frozen blueberries, defrosted (see tip on defrosting)
- To serve
- Greek yoghurt
- blueberries (optional)
- fresh mint
1 Cut the rhubarb into small chunks and place in a microwave-proof dish. Cook on full power for 3 minutes. Stir and cook for another 1 minute – the rhubarb should be quite pulpy. Stir in 4 tablespoons sugar and set to one side. Sprinkle the gelatine over the water and leave for a few minutes. Microwave on high for 20 seconds. Stir to check that all the gelatine is dissolved – the liquid should be clear. Set to one side.
2 Mix the custard powder and remaining sugar together with a little milk to make a smooth paste. Place the remaining milk in a microwave-proof bowl and heat on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour over the custard blend and mix together. Return the custard to the microwave-proof bowl and cook for a further 1 1/2-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until the mix is thick and creamy – this will vary on how thick you like your custard. Cool slightly.
3 Mix the rhubarb with the yoghurt, blueberries and custard. Add the gelatine and stir through the mousse. Pour into serving glasses. Chill until set. Serve with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt and a few blueberries.
