Adding a crumbled shortbread cookie to the bottom of each serving glass and a sprinkle more crumbs on top provides a nice little texture with the smooth mousse. The brand I like is Pamela's found at Whole Foods Market. Wheat and gluten free and only slightly sweetened with agave listed as the 6 or 7th ingredient made them the choice for me. You could always leave the cookie out and just enjoy the mousse, either way, delicious!
A nice water bath is prepared to cook some egg whites into the yogurt mixture. This step is essential and shouldn't be eliminated. Don't be intimated by a water bath, it's not difficult. Simply take a small pan with some water and bring to a low simmer. Place a glass dish larger than the opening of the sauce pan so that the dish will sit right over the rim of the sauce pan. Just make sure the dish doesn't touch the simmering water. That's it. You just whisk the egg whites until they are foamy like the picture above.
See the little specks? Orange and lemon zest! Mixed into the yogurt make this a mousse with a zing!
