When it’s That Time (of the year, of the month, of the week, etc.) when a sweet craving hits a Goddess so hard that her Sweet Tooth becomes really more of a Sweet Fang at that point because she’s ready to pounce on anything and anyone until it’s satisfied, that’s when it’s time for the Mousse of the Goddesses. Also known as Musica of the Goddesses, pronounced MOOSE—EEE—KUH, just like the Spanish word for music: “Musica” (The Goddesses Network spans the globe).
We like to call it Musica of the Goddesses because it is an absolute symphony of sweetness, decadently satisfying your sweet tooth and/or chocolate craving without one single solitary ounce of guilt for treating yourself to dessert. In fact, you can also treat yourself to that adorable outfit you’ve been considering buying to hang up on your closet door as your next “goal size” visual reminder. Go ahead and get it, but be warned, if you keep eating like a Goddess, you’ll be slipping into that “goal size outfit” and needing a new one sooner than you think (so you may want to shop some sales because all the cute clothes you’re going to fit into are going to start adding up$).
Oh and by the way, Musica of the Goddesses is so EASY to make, that when you’re done, you might find yourself in a state of awe.
Here are a few tricks to help you along the way:
– 2 Boxes of Mousse Mix that have 4 to 6 carbs or less per serving (1 Vanilla and 1 Chocolate Mix or whatever your favorite flavors are). Note: Dr. Oetker’s Light Mousse is our favorite so far because it’s easy to make, it’s inexpensive and it’s easy to find. It’s either at a nearby grocery store—in the Jell-O section—or available online:Dr. Oetker’s Light Mousse
– 2 Cups of Cold Milk
– 6 Mini Graham Cracker Crusts (or 1 pie-sized Graham Cracker Crust) – optional
– Fresh Fruit (like Berries) and Food Coloring – optional for decorating
Pour 1 cup of cold milk into a mixing bowl. Add 1 of the mousse mixes. If you’re doing a chocolate and vanilla combo, make the chocolate mousse first. Mix the mousse with an electric mixer on low for 3 to 4 minutes until it gets some thickness and then mix it on high for another 5 minutes until it’s nice and fluffy (depending on the brand of mousse mix you get, it may call for more or less time mixing. Just check the directions on the back of the box).
Spoon that first mousse mixture into your graham cracker crusts, filling them about half way to ¾ of the way full. Then, place them in the freezer.
While your first mousse is chilling, rinse the attachments on your electric mixer and rinse your mixing bowl before making your second mousse (this way you don’t mix the colors). Then, make your second mousse just like the first one until it’s fluffy. If it’s light-colored like vanilla and you want to change its color for a special occasion (i.e. green for St. Patty’s Day) this is when to put a few drops of food coloring in and mix it up. This will be your “topping mousse”.
Leave your “topping mousse” in the mixing bowl and put that bowl in the freezer for about 15 minutes to thicken.
Then, spoon your “topping mousse” on top of your first mouse (that’s already inside the graham cracker crusts). That’s pretty much it!
If you’re serving Musica of the Goddesses in 20 minutes or less after making it, then you can pop it in the freezer for the time being. If you’re not serving it for another few hours or not until the next day, keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Also, if you have fresh fruit to decorate it with, put that on top right before serving it.
Note: To slip into that “goal size outfit” even faster, feel free to leave out the graham cracker crusts altogether. You just follow all the directions above (to keep the lovely layering of the Musica of the Goddesses) but instead of spooning each mousse into the graham cracker crusts, just spoon it into fun little dishes instead (like teacups or fruit bowls). Or if it’s more of a casual affair (like an outdoor barbecue, a picnic, or you enjoying a Mad Men marathon) pretty paper cups make fabulously fuss-free serving dishes!
