What happens when lactaid milk meets pomegranate, other than realize that they both look good in red? They join together to create something awesome and lactose free, something tangy and exotic.
They join forces to create the ultimate pomegranate mousse.
Lactose free, baby! As someone who is lactose intolerant I can't help but be excited. I can't. Specially because I love the heavy cream, and the sweetened condensed milk, and the whole milk, and oh how my stomach suffers. So I eat in moderation, or I take some medications, or I tough it out. But I don't want to tough it out and I really don't want to eat in moderation. So big smiles all around for lactaid milk.
Lactaid selected 4 bloggers to create lactose free recipes to kick off their Lactaid Gourmoo Food Challenge. I'm so excited to be one of the bloggers. I even made a video of my pomegranate mousse during baby Maria's nap this past week. Christian took the footage. He was very serious and director like throughout the whole process. It was a little bit hilarious. If I look like my mood is fluctuating between belly-laughing-on-the-ground to I'm-to-serious-for-my-own-good, it's because I was almost belly laughing on the ground and the only way I could stop the urge to do so was by trying very hard to keep a straight face. Fun times. No really, it was super fun. You should do it too. You should totally submit a video to the gourmoo challenge. I'll give you more details soon. For now you can watch me make lactose free pomegranate mousse.
