 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 1/2 ts Unflavored gelatin
  • 3 tb Cold water
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Fresh lemon juice
  • Rind of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 lg Egg
  • 1 lg Egg yolk
  • 2 ts Orange liqueur
  • 4 lg Egg whites
  • 4 ts Water
  • 1/4 ts Cream of tartar


Put yogurt in a strainer lined with a coffee filter. Place over a bowl,
cover and refrigerate for 12 - 24 hours. Discard the liquid that drains
from yogurt; you should have about 1/2 cup of drained yogurt left.

Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and let stand for at least 5

Mince the lemon rind with 1/4 cup of the sugar until the rind is as fine as
the sugar. Transfer to a small saucepan and add lemon juice, egg and egg
yolk. Whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly,
until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Strain
into a bowl and stir in gelatin mixture and orange liqueur. Chill until
mixture begins to thicken and set but has not fully gelled.

To make a safe meringue, combine the egg whites, water, cream of tartar and
1/4 cup of the sugar in the top of a double boiler. Cook over simmering
water, whisking constantly, until mixture reaches 160ยก. Immediately pour
into the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on high speed, gradually adding
remaining sugar, until whites are cook, thick and glossy, about 5 minutes.

Whisk yogurt inot lemon and egg yolk mixture, mixing until smooth. Gently
fold this mixture into whites. Transfer to 6 individual serving goblets
and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Let stand at room
temperature for 5 - 10 minutes before serving to bring out fullest flavor.
