Orange Creamsicle Mousse

Yields 4 servings

2 ¼ c. fresh orange juice, divided

zest of 1 orange

4 tsp. Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin

3 eggs

⅓-½ c. raw honey (adjust to taste)

2 Tbsp. tapioca starch

2 Tbsp. butter, ghee or coconut oil, softened

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

large pinch sea salt

1 c. coconut cream or heavy whipping cream, chilled (plus more for garnish)


In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup of the fresh orange juice with the 4 teaspoons Collagen Proteins.  Mix and set aside to bloom.

Combine the remaining 2 cups fresh orange juice with the orange zest, eggs, raw honey, tapioca starch, butter, vanilla, and sea salt in a medium saucepan.  Whisk well until the mix is fairly smooth.  Place over medium-low heat and cook until the mixture thickens, whisking continually.   It will take about 10-15 minutes.  Don’t leave the stove or stop whisking or the eggs may curdle.*

Add the reserved juice/collagen mix into the pan and whisk vigorously until the collagens have dissolved completely, about 2 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat, pour the creamy mix into a bowl, and place it in the refrigerator until chilled, about 1 hour.

Place the chilled coconut cream into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Whisk on high speed until whipped and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add the chilled orange cream mix. Whisk again to incorporate it fully, about 30 seconds.

Portion out into bowls and serve immediately for a lighter mousse.  For a thicker mousse texture, portion into bowls and chill them before serving for about 30 minutes.  Garnish with additional whipped cream, as desired.

*Note for troubleshooting:  if you see any bits of curdled eggs when removing the pan from the heat, you can push the mix through a fine sieve to remove the bits.  Alternatively, you can put the mix through a blender (careful if the mix is hot when you do this) and smooth it out completely by blending on high for 30 seconds.
