How to make this recipe
- Egg whites: Did you know egg whites can expand up to eight times their volume? They will give your mousse volume and texture. Egg whites are also neutral in flavor so they will add the volume and protein without taking away from the chocolate texture you are striving for. Room temperature eggs work best.
- Cream of tarter is an acid that will combine with the egg whites to strengthen and stabilize the foamy texture.
- low fat milk: Choosing a low fat (such as 1%) milk will reduce fat and calories without cutting any of the benefits of dairy such as protein and calcium content. And you won’t be able to tell the difference in the finished product.
- Sugar free White Chocolate pudding (4 serving size) is available at all grocery stores and a staple in many of my low calorie recipes. It tastes great and you won’t miss the sugar!
- Sucralose or other non calorie sweetener: Splenda is the most common brand of Sucralose on the market. It is sweeter than sugar so you don’t need a lot.
- Fat free cool whip will make your mousse low calorie while still giving you the creamy texture of regular mousse.
- Real white chocolate shavings — grate a teaspoon off of a white chocolate bar to make your low calorie dessert look like it came out of a fancy restaurant.
- A squirt of whipped cream or a dollop of fat free cool whip for some extra cream and visual appeal.
- Fresh fruit such as a raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, or a few blueberries to add some color and a great flavor mixture. The “berry bite” will be the best part of this low calorie mousse.
