Diabetic Chocolate Mousse Recipe

I have to admit to loving anything that has chocolate in it and now that I know it is good for you, in moderation, I am always looking for new recipes that feature it.
My sister Mandy makes delicious chocolate mousse but as it is loaded with chocolate and cream, not suitable for diabetics. This recipe is by no means as delicious as hers but it is better than the diet ones you find in the refrigerator section of the supermarket.
I got this recipe off a girlfriend of mine who made it with sugar. I have made it with splenda and also half sugar and half splenda. You can adapt it to suit yourself.
Make sure that the evaporated milk is really chilled before whipping or else it will not whip up properly.


1 sachet of gelatine (10g)
2 tablespoons good cocoa powder
375ml can reduced fat evaporated milk (I use Carnation Light)
1/2 cup water (125ml)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup slenda
1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Mix gelatine and cocoa together in a small bowl or jug. Slowly add the cold water to this and stir until a thin paste.
Heat in the microwave until the gelatine melts. Do not boil.
Pour chilled milk into a large mixing bowl and beat on high speed of electric mixer until really thick.
Add sugar, splenda, hot cocoa mix and vanilla essence. Beat all together until well combined.
Pour into indivdual dishes and put in the refigerator until set.
This will make 12 small serves. Each one is approx 200KJ and around 1.4g fat.
