Chicken Farm Baker's Project#12 Low Carb Dessert : Yogurt Mousse and Strawberry Jelly

For the Chicken Farm Bakers' Project of this month, we need something light, ^ ^. As the host of this month (Nok) she wants all of us to find the dessert that make us feel slim.

I have to admit that I don't know much about the low carb diet, but I try to make the dessert that use less sugar than usual.
I end up with this creation, the light dessert with a tangy taste, Yogurt mousse with strawberry jelly. The yogurt mousse, is light and tangy (well, the sugar is needed for the balance of the taste), with a vanilla fragrance, this mousse is getting along well with the strawberry jelly.

The strawberry jelly is tangy too, but with a bit of sweet, and if you love tangy taste I suggest you to double the quantity of the jelly and pour it over the mousse (my mom don't like dessert to be too tangy, so I use only one layer of the jelly).

I think this dessert will serve the purpose of this project, it's refreshing, delicious and don't make you feel heavy ^ ^.

When the milk cool, pour the yogurt into the bowl.
Pour the milk bit by bit into the yogurt, until mix through.
