This has to be the easiest dessert ever. 5 minutes to mix, 5 minutes in the fridge . Its not quite sweet enough for me so I added stevia the first time and whipped cream on top. The 2nd time, I left out the coffee added more cocoa ,stevia and a little maple syrup. Thanks for a great low calorie recipe thats easy,tasty and flexable.
This recipe is a sinners delight. I felt like a big cheater eating it because its not full of calories. Of course I had to treat myself to some whipped cream on top but I didnt feel guilty about it one bit. Easy to make and even easier to enjoy. Very kid friendly too!!
NEAT recipe! I couldn't resist trying this in my Magic Bullet (it filled it to the top but worked great). I used crushed ice. It thickened within the processing time (so I didn't even need to chill it). The funny thing was that we had a fancy slice of choc. mousse cake in the fridge. and we did a taste comparison and the mousse part was surprisingly similar! The cocoa did have a slightly bitter tinge (since it doesn't have much sugar) but so did the mousse cake. I topped with a dollop of whipped cream. This made a terrific low cal treat!
