For your Happy Valentine's day: Strawberry yogurt mousse or tart

 When February comes, I think about the special day of this month ^^ : Valentine's day.


Actually you can celebrate this day with anyone you love (not only lover). It's not easy for everyone to say "I love you" but I think it will be great if we can say it to each other everyday. So, if you never said it before, I really recommend you to start this habit now. You may think that action is stronger than words but showing someone that you love him or her is not easy, sometimes we need words too. For this special day I want to give you special recipe too ^^. Easy to make, no baked, and to make it easier you can choose to make it with or without crust. Both are delicious. You can prepare it a day before and decorate it before serving. 
Now I give you a tool to open people heart, serve this lovely dessert with a smile and don't forget to say I love you.


  

Strawberry yogurt mousse or tart
Serve 5-6 (depends on how you prepare it)


Oreo crust**
250g ..................................... Oreo cookies (without filling)
125g ..................................... Unsalted butter, melted 
.............................................. Pinch of salt

Filling
200g ..................................... Strawberries, hulled 
10ml ..................................... Lemon juice

3.5g ...................................... Gelatine sheets (about 2 sheets)
120g ..................................... Plain yogurt
115g ..................................... Whipping cream
.............................................. Fresh strawberries for decorating

**Note:
1. You don't need to make oreo crust if making mousse
2. I use 11 cm tart pan and get 5 tarts.


 Crush the cookie into small pieces with rolling pin or food processor.

 Mix the crushed cookie pieces with melted butter and pinch of salt.

 Press into the bottom removable tart pans.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
Bloom the gelatine sheets in iced cold water for at least 5 minutes.
Put the strawberries into the food processor or blender and puree until fine.
Put the the strawberry puree into a microwavable cup with lemon juice and granulated sugar.
 Heat in the microwave until boil for 2-3 minutes (600w).
Remove from the microwave, take the gelatine sheets from the water, squeeze lightly and put the gelatine sheets into the hot mixture, stir until melt.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
 Mix the strawberry mixture with yogurt.

 Whip the whipping cream until soft peaks formed.

 Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the strawberry mixture.

 Pour the mixture back into the whipped cream bowl.

 Fold to combine.
Pour into the prepared tart crust.
Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until firm.
*If making strawberry yogurt mousse, just pour the mixture into the glasses ^^.
Decorate with fresh strawberry before serving.
