This fabulous, nearly fat free mousse is lighter and airier than most chocolate desserts and is so quick and easy to make!


Makes 8 servings


1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur
2 cups fat-free (skim) milk
1/4 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup thawed frozen reduced-fat nondairy whipped topping


  1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cocoa and gelatin in medium saucepan. Add coffee-flavored liqueur; let stand 2 minutes. Add milk; heat over medium heat. Stir until sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Stir in egg substitute. Set aside.
  2. Beat egg whites in medium bowl with electric mixer until foamy; add cream of tartar. Beat until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently fold egg whites into cocoa mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Divide evenly between 8 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until thickened. Garnish as desired.
