I tried a few different chocolate mousse recipes, some used cream, ahhh the calories, some used whole eggs, better but still very high fat.I can´t take credit for this recipe, it belongs to Raymond Blanc.
At 280 calories per portion, it still can´t claim to be low calorie, but this Lighter Chocolate Mousse won´t break the calorie bank either, if you are calorie conscious.
I sometimes make this as a weekend treat. I use less sugar than Raymond, as I really don´t think it needs it.
You need a good quality chocolate for this recipe, at least 70% cocoa solids, I used the supermarket own brand, Hacendado. Lemon juice added to egg whites helps to strengthen and stabilize them.
If you want to dumb down the calories a bit more, then you could squeeze 6 portions out of this recipe, and drop the calories down to 187 per serving.[yith_wcwl_add_to_wishlist]
