Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella  Mousse

It’s National Chocolate Mousse Day today, so of course I had to make some chocolate mousse!

I lightened it up by using nonfat Greek yogurt and an egg white in place of the heavy cream, but it still tastes deliciously decadent, with deep dark undertones of Kahlua and hazelnut.

Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

Makes 2 servings

  • 2 Tablespoons Kahlua
  • 2 teaspoons good quality dark cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the Kahlua, cocoa powder, Nutella, yogurt and vanilla until it’s smooth.
  2. In a separate small bowl, beat the egg white at medium or high till soft peaks form, then sprinkle the cream of tartar on while still beating until the peaks are firm. Gently fold the beaten egg white into the chocolate mixture.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge for a couple hours until it’s firmed up to the desired consistency.
I garnished it with a little dollop of plain Greek yogurt, a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a hazelnut.

      It’s been unseasonably warm here this spring. Last weekend it got up to almost 90 degrees! Some years we still have snow on the ground … this is odd. I don’t think it’s right, but I have to admit I’m enjoying it.
