Two low-calorie chocolate desserts

1) Chocolate & berry mousse pots (159 calories)

Ingredients:
  • 75g dark chocolate 70% grated
  • 4 tbsp low-fat yogurt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 350g berries (try blueberries, raspberries, cherries or a mix)
Method:
  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t directly touch the water. Once melted, allow it to cool for 5-10 mins, then stir in the yogurt.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then whisk in the sugar and beat until stiff again. Fold the whites into the chocolate mix – loosen the mixture first with a spoonful of egg white, then carefully fold in the rest, keeping as much air as possible.
  • Put berries into small glasses or ramekins, then divide mousse on top. Chill in the fridge until set. 

2) Double chocolate cardamom pots (119 calories)

Ingredients:
  • 25g white chocolate
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • generous pinch ground cardamom
Method:
  • Make chocolate curls with the white chocolate by running a swivel peeler over the surface. When you have enough to sprinkle over 4 chocolate pots, set these aside, then chop the remainder.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or in the microwave on Medium for 1½-2 mins. Leave to cool slightly. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then whisk in the sugar and cardamom. Fold in the melted chocolate, then gently fold in the chopped white chocolate.
  • Divide between 4 small dishes or cups, about 100ml in size. Sprinkle over the white chocolate curls and chill until ready to serve, at least 1 hr.
