Vanilla Fat Bomb "Fat is flavor."

I remember this lesson well, in cooking school. Wise information handed down from a crotchety old Frenched chef dubbed "The Frog" (apparently frog legs were a favorite of his).

This recipe makes something along the lines of a basic cheesecake flavored "mousse". It's soft, sweet and tasty.

There are many who feel that a diet high in fat and low in pretty much everything else is the way to go. I've seen ratios like 90% fat, 9% protein and 1% carbs ... to maintain and sustain a healthy life. I don't know about all of that, but ... I DO know that this is quick, delicious, easy to make and holds well in the fridge for a few days. I usually make a batch and divide it into little plastic cups in the fridge. I'll eat one after dinner, while I see what kinds of shenanigans The Mentalist is up to, this week.

Anyone that says a sweet tasty dessert full of fat and ... almost nothing else ... is a bad thing is ... lying to you.

"It's a good thing." – A quote from an equally crotchety individual. :)

Method:

  1. Add the first 4 ingredients to a food processor. If you don't have one, you can do this with a whisk and a bowl.
  2. Turn on the food processor.
  3. With the processor running, add the cream in a medium-slow and deliberate steady stream. This will "whip" the cream with the cream cheese. This will add air and will result in something like a cheesecake "mousse", once it chills.
  4. Portion into cups and eat when chilled!
