Dreamy chocolate mousse

This seems like a lot of faffs but it really is worth all the steps! Creamy, mousse-like and aerated great for dessert!

1 gelatin leaf soaked in water,

200g fat free greek yogurt,

1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder*,

sweetener to taste,

1 tbsp milk powder*,

150ml hot water,

150ml cold water,

1 tsp vanilla (and if you can get it chocolate extract, most supermarkets sell it now)

  1. Soak the gelatin leaf in the cold water until soft then pour into the hot liquid and mix until dissolved.
  2. Mix the cocoa powder, vanilla, milk powder with a little bit of the yoghurt to make a paste to help distribute the lumps.
  3. Whisk in the rest of the yoghurt then slowly add the gelatin mix whisking until bubbles form.
  4. Pour into 2-4 serving dishes (remember to divide the syns by how many you make) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

These can be made up to 3 days in advance. Just place some cling film over the top of your mousse dessert cups.

If you want these extra chocolatey you could melt 15g of 70% dark chocolate and whisk it into the mix before setting! You could grate some orange zest into the mix to get a christmassy chocolate orange mousse!

Serve as is or with berries and a dollop of vanilla yoghurt or even some low-fat squirty cream!
