Chocolate Velvet Mousse Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup low fat milk
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (Grand Marnier, Curacao, Triple Sec, or brandy)*
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups sliced strawberries


Directions

  1. Place chocolate and milk in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until chocolate melts. Set aside.
  2. Stir together egg substitute, Splenda Granulated Sweetener, cornstarch and Grand Marnier in a small mixing bowl. Add to chocolate mixture. Stir constantly. Cook over medium heat while stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken (approx. 3-4 minutes). Remove from heat and pour into the bowl of a blender or food processor. Blend or process briefly (10-20 seconds) to make a more creamy texture. Pour into medium bowl and cover.
  3. Refrigerate chocolate mixture approx. 2-3 hours or until cool. Whip cream until stiff and fold into chocolate. Refrigerate overnight to set. Will keep refrigerated for 3 days.
  4. To serve, layer strawberries and mousse in 6 all- purpose wine glasses.

Notes:

This chilled, layered dessert topped with strawberries is quite impressive. Be sure to allow time to let it set! It’s well worth the wait. Alcohol can be replaced with 1 teaspoon orange extract.
