This chocolate raspberry mousse recipe is not for those of you on a strict diet, it’s the perfect pudding for dinner parties too. Perfect if you’re healthy eating. If you are looking for a Slimming World chocolate mousse then this could help!

If you follow Slimming World, Weight Watchers (WW), Noom or any other weight loss plan you can usually count this dessert within your allowances.

That said it is so good you will surely want to treat yourself. It may be the perfect delicious dessert for a romantic meal? Why not give it a try yourself?

How easy is this recipe to make?

This recipe is so easy to make children will enjoy making it too. There is no reason they can’t lick the bowl as it doesn’t involve anything like raw eggs. A bonus on all accounts I would say.

The desserts do not take long to make but need an hour in the fridge to set. Alternatively, you can leave them in the fridge overnight so a perfect way to get the kids cooking.

Compared to many other healthier desserts it does not use Quark and in my opinion, is much nicer than a Slimming World quark chocolate mousse!

Why do chocolate and raspberry go so well together?

What can I say? If you love chocolate and like raspberries then this chocolate raspberry mousse is amazing. Also, the fact it involves raspberries means you feel like you are being a little healthy! But not really!

If you are worried about the cost of the Lindt raspberry chocolate or can not get it near you then don’t worry. I suggest substituting for cheaper dark chocolate and adding some raspberries to the mixture it will still be yummy!

Making this raspberry and chocolate mousse healthier

If you are desperate to make this but want it to be healthier then you could always use a lower fat cream. A good substitute is Elmlea whipping. It is still, in my opinion, better than a Slimming World quark chocolate mousse as it is proper chocolate and tastes naughty.

Making your portion smaller and making 8 small ones would be a great swap too. Using granulated sweetener can save a little sugar and a few syns on the total recipe there too.

Serving the smaller dessert with a large handful of raspberries will also mean you still have a good size dessert for half the calories!
