The first thing you should do before you start making your homemade yoghurt mousse is to get all the ingredients ready. If you prefer to make this recipe even lighter, you can replace sugar for sweetener. If you do not have whipping cream, you can replace this with 100g (3.5 oz) cream cheese. Lay out several bowls.
When you have everything ready, you can begin. The first thing to do is mix the yoghurt with a spoonful of sugar in a bowl until the latter is well dissolved. Remember that you can use whatever yogurt flavour you like but, depending on which you choose, you should reduce the amount of sugar. The five tablespoons are for plain yogurt.
Now, take another bowl and beat the egg whites until stiff. While beating, gradually add the remaining tablespoon of sugar. In another separate bowl, whip the cream. In both cases it is recommended to use a beater or mixer, as doing it manually will not give you the same result. You know that the cream is well whipped when you can pull away the mixer and it makes peaks in the cream.
Now we just need to mix all the ingredients. Start adding the whipped cream to the yoghurt and stir it with a spatula to mix it together. When this is ready, add the egg whites in the same manner and do it carefully to avoid losing the creamy texture.
When you have everything mixed, distribute the mousse yogurt in several bowls or cups and put these in the refrigerator for at least four hours. If you want, you can add a couple of tablespoons of honey, strawberry jam, or whatever you like at the bottom of the bowl. Or you can do the opposite and first pour in the mousse and then add a tablespoon of red currant sauce for example.
