Method

  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.

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!

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.
