Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

This recipe was a hit at last month’s Spa 33 Open House.  I think Nell is stalking me for the recipe tho, so I had to make this my next post …

Citrus Bliss Cheesecake Mousse

3.4 oz vanilla instant pudding mix

4 drops of doTERRA Citrus Bliss essential oil

1 packet Knox gelatin

1.5 cups 1% Milk

8 oz cream fat-free cream cheese

8 oz fat-free ricotta cheese

½  tablespoon honey

Dream Whip (1 envelope)

  •  In a microwave-safe bowl, heat up ½ cup of milk in microwave (or you can use stove-top)
  • Add 1 packet of Knox gelatin and stir until completely dissolved
  • Let mixture cool
  • Add pudding mix, ½ cup of cold milk and Citrus Bliss Essential Oil.  Whisk for 2 minutes  (this is the bowl I refer to from now on as the “mousse mixture”)
  • In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, ricotta cheese and honey.  Blend until smooth
  • Add to mousse mixture, blend until smooth
  • In a separate bowl, prepare Dream Whip according to box directions, using remaining ½ cup of milk (do not add vanilla)
  • Add to mousse mixture, blend until smooth
  • In mini-serving cups (I used 2 oz sample cups, this recipe makes approx 24 servings) place 2 tablespoons of mousse mixture.  Top with your choice of fresh fruit or mini-chocolate chips.   Also works great in full-size dessert dishes for a more formal serving size
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 – 4 hours
  • Eat and enjoy!

ALTERNATE YUMMY-NESS:  add a Graham Cracker crust and topping:

½ cup graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Combine all ingredients together.  Add a small layer at the bottom of the serving cups before piping on the Mousse.  Sprinkle crumbs on top after garnishing with berries or chips.  YUM!

These mini-sized Cheesecake Mousse servings are approximately 45 calories (before adding the optional graham cracker crust)!

From reference book Emotions & Essential Oils:

Citrus Bliss is “the Oil of Creativity” and acts as a powerful “fire starter”.  It returns motivation and drive when it is lacking.  This is a wonderful combination of oils for addressing lethargy, discouragement, despondency or low will to live.  When the soul has lost its connection to the magic in life, this blend helps restore the spark.  This blend also inspires Creativity.  Placed over the solar plexus, this blend restores confidence in one’s Self and in one’s creations.  Citrus Bliss rekindles the fire of the personality and fills the heart with creativity and joy.
