1/3 Photos of Low-Fat Chocolate Mousse in a Meringue Shell (Pavlova)
2 hrs 30 mins
This dessert makes a beautiful presentation, yet is low-fat and kind to your diet. You'll want to make the meringue shell (also known as Pavlova) early in the day, or even a day ahead. If you've never made a meringue shell and want a quick alternative, you can substitute a prepared Reduced-Fat Graham Cracker Crust. This recipe was created for the ZWT3 "Lighten Up" challenge in June 2007.
