mimosa berry terrine | an easy boozy dessert

Ali Hedin | Mimosa Berry Terrine

Every party dinner needs a dessert.  A good one.  This year with my 'clean eating' Easter, a 'clean'-ish dessert was needed.  It's a no-dairy, no-wheat, low sugar dessert that's perfect for the season!  It's full of berries, full of champagne, and is an AMAZING brunch dessert because it's light and refreshing.  

You can choose to use what ever berries you want - this would be great just packed with strawberries - but I love how it looks with all different berries floating on the inside.  There is champagne in the dessert so you can choose if it's a 'kid-dessert' in your house or not.  Because the champagne cooks for a few minutes + it's not much, I let my kids have some of it.  They don't love it so it works out all the way around - they don't feel excluded and I don't feel like I'm feeding my kids champagne.

serves 4

4 cups mixed berries

2 envelopes gelatin

1 cup champagne

1 cup DRY Blood Orange

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons fresh squeezed orange juice


In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup of the champagne.  Let sit until the gelatin melts.


Spray the bottom of a glass container with cooking oil and layer all of the berries in the dish.


Heat the remaining champagne and sugar over low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from the heat.  Whisk in gelatin, DRY Sparkling, and orange juice..  Let cool slightly.


Pour gelatin mixture over the berries.  Place in the refrigerator and let cool at least 6 hours.  But ideally overnight.
