  • 75g dark chocolate 70% grated
  • 4 tbsp low-fat yogurt



    Yogurt is made by adding a number of types of harmless bacteria to milk, causing it to ferment.…

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 350g berries (try blueberries, raspberries, cherries or a mix)


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Put berries into small glasses or ramekins, then divide mousse on top. Chill in the fridge until set.

Horrible.. don't taste much like chocolate mousses. more like yogurt.

Lovely recipe. I really wanted something light that was low cal & low fat. I cut strawberries, added blueberries and frozen summer fruits but would work with any berries. I also just melted my chocolate in the microwave gently. A hit with all my family! Definitely make again.

Brilliant dessert. Super easy and delicious. I used very high-percentage chocolate (88%).
Does, as said in previous comments, taste like a bit of Amaretto or another flavoured liquor is added. Big plus for me and my friends. Will definitely make this this week again!

Wow!! On a healthy kick and made these as they were within my calorie intake. Used dark chocolate and raspberries, it tasted alcoholic (a plus in my case) and my husband was convinced I had lied about the calories. He ate super slow as he didn't want it to finish! Already planning to make again tomorrow!

The taste was rather strong. I served it with blueberries, which is a good offset!

Made this today. My new favourite low cal pud! Used fresh cherries and blueberries. Served it with a shortie biscuit. Also only did half quantity and worked fine.

Made these for Valentines dinner, they were sooo easy and tasted really nice. Already made again two nights later. It's a keeper!

I used fromage frais and milk chocolate, and it turned out very nicely indeed for a mid-week dinner with friends. Quick and easy. I plan on making it again. Four stars.

I made these last night and added a touch of mixed spice, which worked well. It went a tiny bit grainy which is where the chocolate must of got too hot. If you like dark chocolate this is perfect

I made these and i think i left the chocolate to cool for a little bit longer, so when it came to adding the yoghurt it was a little separated. Might attempt again but didnt enjoy finished product that much.

This was lovely.
I never melt chocolate over a pan of simmering water; I just break the chocolate into pieces and heat it in a bowl in the microwave - not too much. Take it out just before all the chocolate has melted and stir like mad. Much easier and quicker.

I had a problem with this recipe, when I mixed in my yoghurt the chocolate went 'grainy' even though I let it cool, any suggestions as to where I went wrong?

iv made this twice now, absolutely delicious!! very rich and creamy, the second time i used fromage frais as i had no yoghurt left, it took a lot of the edge off, would recomment if u find the yoghurt version too strong.

These tasted better than I expected from the healthy recipe. I thought the yogurt might make it a bit tart, but the chocolate compensated for it, I think. You do have to find something to do with the egg yolks though, so you get the fat sooner or later.

I put mine in a strawberry semifreddo (also on this site) which is now in my freezer for St.George's Day.
