Every so often, it’s nice to have an easy dessert. Healthy habits include all kinds of foods even the sweet stuff. This recipe is a healthier version of a traditional recipe which only had cream and chocolate as the main ingredients. Instead, I have substituted part of the cream for low-fat Greek yogurt and swapped the chocolate for cocoa. I also replace part of the sugar for stevia which further improve this recipe. Note that I tried to use 15% cream instead of 35%, which did not give the right texture.
I also use gelatin in place of eggs, to give a creamy consistency and to set the mousse. It is important to use premium cocoa for the texture and flavour to well replace the chocolate. Yes, this is a dessert but I think a much-improved version which doesn’t compromise on flavour!
Fridge : 8 hours
Step 1 :
Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Leave in the fridge while preparing the rest of the recipe.
Step 2 :
Combine in a separate bowl the greek yogurt, milk, sugar and the stevia and cocoa until completely homogenized.
Step 3 :
Prepare the gelatin as indicated on the package. Add to the chocolate mixture and mix well.
Slowly fold the chocolate mixture and gelatin mixture in the whipped cream until well distributed. Hint: The colour should be uniform throughout if you are using a glass bowl.
Serve into separate portions and let set covered with plastic wrap for 8hr to allow the gelatin the firm up the mousse.
