Orange Cream Cheese Mousse

So instead of using my time wisely and study for my Pathophysiology final last weekend, my procrastination took over and out came another dessert XD. Okay, in my defense, I HAD to make something before my cream cheese expired the next day. I didn't really know what to do with it since I wasn't in the mood for any more cheesecakes, so I went back to the hundreds of recipes I saved in My Favorites and found this: 柳橙起士慕斯 on
. It looked so pretty that I had to try it myself. Thankfully the recipe called for 250g of cream cheese, which is just what i had left... so no calculating or dividing needed. Anyways, 做來做去, another afternoon of studying was wasted and i dreadfully suffered the consequences when i began studying 2 nights before the freakin Final. Gahhh, I have a love/hate relationship with cramming + pulling all-nighters. Even though chugging down a big cup of coffee at 3 AM sounds pretty bad, but to be honest, I rather use that one night and push myself to the point where I can just drop dead after the exam than to die a slow, painful death by studying everyday. Call me a masochist, but i really ONLY work well under pressure-- Stress is my driving force.... But thankfully i had many cups of mousses to help me through those nights so... if you think about it, my 混 was actually time well spent *chuckles*.

  • A layer of almond cake cut into 8 small circles
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 of a vanilla pod (i used 1 teaspoon vanilla extract).
  • 2.5 teaspoons unflavored gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)

  • 1/2 package of orange jello OR:
    - 200 mL orange juice
    - 1 tablespoon lemon juice

    - 2.5 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  1. Beat the cream cheese and sugar until soft, add in the seeds in the vanilla pod + lemon juice.
  2. Mix in the dissolved gelatin and beat until everything is thoroughly mixed.
  3. Separately, whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form and fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Place the cake layers in molds/cups and pour the mousse on top. Refrigerate until set.
  5. Prepare the orange jello according to package directions.
    - OR combine the orange juice, lemon juice, sugar, gelatin together and heat until dissolved.
