Diabetic Chocolate Mousse Recipe

My husband loves chocolate mousse and is always buying the little weight watchers ones from the refrigerator section at the supermarket. On seeing how much they cost, I decided to look around for a suitable recipe that not only saves us money but also one that tastes great as well.
I found this recipe on a site that lets you share them and decided to make it myself to see if I thought it was good enough to share with you. I found it quite tasty and I am sure that once you try it you will agree with me. When using artificial sweeteners, always look for one that does not contain aspartame.


1 sachet of gelatin (about 30g)
1/4 cup water
1 cup low fat milk ( I use Hi-Low)
1/2 cup good cocoa powder
1/3 cup sweetener (I use Splenda)
1 cup light cream - whipped
flake chocolate or chocolate curls to decorate.


Sprinkle the gelatin over water in a small saucepan and let stand for a couple of minutes. Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.
Stir 1/4 cup of the milk into the cocoa powder to make a paste then gradually stir in remaining milk.
Pour into gelatin and add the sweetener to this.
Refrigerate until it begins to thicken, approx 25 minutes.
Remove from fridge and fold in whipped cream.
Spoon mixture into serving glasses and refrigerate for 2 - 3 hours.
To serve, garnish with some crumbled flake or chocolate curls.
