“this is a different variation of my other recipe Custard Cream Mousse I. This one is a HEALTHEIR version. This recipe came from a Japanese cooking site, It originally called for whipping cream, but I substituted it with 150g of Cool Whip and with 50g of sugar, one egg yolk instead of two, and only 120mL of soymilk. 50g of sugar is too sweet to my taste, adjust sweetness to your liking. Also, I added white sesame paste (nerigoma, not tahini). I used a bit more gelatin than the recipe called for because I ALWAYS get gelatin stuck in the cup that I soften it in.”
