  2. Whisk the egg whites using an electric mixer until they reach stiff peaks.
  3. Take one-third of the egg white and mix thoroughly into the melted chocolate, to lighten it. Add the remaining egg whites and carefully fold in.

Top tips for making low-calorie chocolate mousse:

Try serving the chocolate mousse with fresh strawberries or raspberries to make it feel more substantial. We recommend using good-quality dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids.
