Hi! Are you having a nervous breakdown planning for V-Day? 😉 Nope. Not me. I’m cool as a cucumber! Why wouldn’t I be? I’ve been showering the people I love with the food I love every single day since the inception of Foodomania. So I have no doubt in my mind, I’ll be able to do the same, come f-f-f-fourteenth Feb.

Not that I have to. Nobody is expecting me to do anything grand. After all it is just another day. Like 31st of December or 1st of January. But I sure am whipping up this oreo mousse (yet again) to celebrate! I don’t need a reason to make oreo mousse .. or any kinda mousse, really. But Oreos happen to be a favorite in our household. And it is nice to shower your family with some luuurvee, right? 😛   

For me, food is the language of love. If I make an effort to cook something for you, you are an important person in my life! And nobody has been more important and loved than my little brother. It is surreal to think he has devoured every single (almost 500 something) recipe I’ve cooked for the purpose of “blogging”. 🙂 Without him to “taste test” my recipes, I’m not sure how adventurous I could have been with cooking. He is definitely my most favorite person in the world (even when we fight like cats and dogs). Oreos are the kid’s favorite. And he is a huge fan of my chocolate mousse. So I just put together this easy eggless oreo mousse for him.

This can be a perfect recipe for your Valentine’s day dinner date as well. The recipe is perfect for two! 🙂

Light & Airy Oreo Mousse recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon Agar agar flakes / Gelatin powder / flakes
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 cup Milk (preferably full fat whole milk)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of Sugar (adjust to taste – remember, Oreo cookies are sweet too)
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream (*or 1 cup whipped cream)
  • 1 cup Crushed Oreo Cookies (or as much as you like!)
  • VEGAN ALTERNATIVES FOR OREO MOUSSE
  • Use any non-dairy milk that you can boil. And use soy whipped cream
Instructions
  1. Whip the heavy cream to form stiff peaks ahead of time. Keep the whipped cream chilled until use.
  2. Mix the agar agar / gelatin with water and bring to a gentle boil. The agar agar will start to dissolve into the water.
  3. Meanwhile, mix cornstarch in 1/4 cup of milk and set aside.
  4. Bring sugar & remaining milk to a boil. Keep it heating on medium heat for around 5 minutes. The milk will reduce. By doing this, you ensure that the whey evaporates and you have a creamy mixture.
  5. Add the cornstarch-milk mixture slowly to the boiled milk and keep stirring the mixture on low heat. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens to form a custard.
  6. Add the agar-agar mixture to the custard and mix well to incorporate. At this point, taste the mixture and adjust for sweetness, if required.
  7. Important step: Pass the mixture through a sieve to have a smooth custard. Let the custard cool for a bit.
  8. Add crushed oreos to the custard and mix well.
  9. Once the mixture is cool, add the whipped cream and gently fold into the custard until you have one even mousse mixture.
To serve
  1. Add an oreo cookie on the bottom of each serving glass. Divide the mousse mixture between glasses. Add another oreo cookie on top of the mousse. Cover with aluminum foil. Refrigerate for at 3-4 hours or until it is fully set. Keep it chilled until ready to serve! Enjoy!
  2. Stays good up to 3 days.

Add sugar to the remaining milk and bring that to a boil. Let the milk boil on medium heat for sometime (keep stirring). By boiling milk for a longer time, you ensure some of the whey is evaporated and you are left with a creamy texture.

Add the agar agar-water mixture to the custard and mix well. Keep stirring till the mixture is cooled a bit. Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, pass it through a sieve (very important) to catch any lumps. You want a smooth custard.
