    I was wondering if anyone else makes jelly with the mousse mix? I tried the mousse mix with the milkshakes, but I hated it, so I thought I'd find something to make with it.

    The mousse mix is just gelatine. You can have up to 2 tsp of it a day, so it's a great little extra thing you can have.

    I use:
    100ml water
    1 1/2 (slightly raised) tsp of Mousse Mix
    1/2 tsp of water flavouring, add more or less depending on your taste (my fave is Sunrise Orange)
    - you may need to play with the amounts depending on your teaspoon size, I use proper teaspoon measure.

    I put it all in the LighterLife beaker, then use a hand whisk to whisk it up really well. I like to make it a little bit frothy as when it sets it feels like the jelly has got a creamy topping.

    Then put it in a small glass or bowl and put in the fridge for 20-30 mins until set.


    I asked the LLC if it was ok and she said it was fine. You can have it in addition to your packs (as long as you don't use the mousse mix in anything else that day).

    The only sweet thing I like is the bars and I have them for brekkie, so its sometimes nice to have something sweet after dinner.

    Wonder if they will find a way to do a veggie mousse mix.

    I've just made up 4 pots of jelly for the week, put them is small little tupperware containers so I can just grab after dinner if I want one.

    I tried it once. It did not work. I gave up.
    Back to Mousse I go.

    The Mousse mix is very hit and miss!! :(

    Ooh interesting... I am very disappointed with the mousse mix so far as I find it just makes things lumpy, which is horrid!!! But maybe jelly would work better...
