chocolate orange mousse

This is a fantastic low-fat and delicious dessert that doesn’t taste like you’re calorie counting! The orange pairs beautifully with the dark chocolate but you can use alternative flavours like peppermint extract if you please.

Serves 6
85g Dark Lindt 70% Chocolate
4 large eggs, separated
4 tbsp artificial sweetener
1 tbsp ground orange zest (use a mortar and pestle)
142g fat-free natural fromage frais.

1. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the egg yolks and the sweetener.
2. Place the fromage frais and the orange zest into a food processor and whiz for 20 seconds. Stir into the chocolate mixture.
3. Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Gently fold the egg whites, bit by bit, into the chocolate mixture, keeping the air in the mixture.
4. Divide the mixture between the six serving dishes and pop into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
