Something for upcoming Valentine’s Day… This easy, low-carb white chocolate mousse was made using only a few ingredients, with a distinct ‘Turkish Delight’ flavour coming from the necessary addition of rose water. Its a lovely, fragrant dessert that is so pretty to look at – and even better to tuck into! I added a little pink food colouring, but that is entirely optional. Each serving is approx 135g / 4.8oz, which is very generous, and only 2.8g carbs per serving, – you can get away with it! You can choose to simply divide the mixture between 4 dessert bowls, or you can pipe them in like I did. It was only afterwards I realised it resembles a pink rose (well, at a stretch), so I encourage you to put in the little extra effort.
Important technique tip: Allow the melted cocoa butter buttons to cool sufficiently before adding to the cream to avoid a grainy mousse. Also, be careful not to over-whip the cream, nobody wants rose water butter…
Weigh out the cocoa butter drops, then melt them over a very low heat on the stove top.
Pour the melted cocoa butter into a small dish and leave to cool completely. (Failing to cool sufficiently may result in a grainy mousse)
Whip the cream and sweetener to soft peaks. Add the rose water and food colouring (if using) and whip well to combine.
Transfer a third of the whipped cream to the separate, smaller bowl. Pour the cooled cocoa butter into the smaller bowl of cream and beat well to combine.
Return the cocoa butter/cream mix to the larger bowl of whipped cream, whipping one last time to combine. It should be fairly stiff peaks, but not as stiff as butter! Divide or pipe the mousse between 4 dessert bowls.
If you have a few raspberries kicking about, garnish the mousse pots with them (not included in the macros).
