Lactose free chocolate mousse (4 ingredients)

Lactose free chocolate mousse (4 ingredients)

I’ve just taken 5 whole minutes of my life to make individual portions of chocolate mousse for the girls at work. My first thought was to create something delicious, lactose-free, not too sweet, and with as little ingredients as possible.

If you’re wondering about the texture, here’s what to expect: think of a small cream jar (minus the cream) blended with a mousse. So it’s quite thick, but not too much. Ok, so maybe I’m not being very clear about this, but one thing is: both the taste and texture are delightful.

I still can’t believe how quickly this was put-together, and how lovely it looks that it’s officially become my summer go-to when entertaining. I wrote down a few topping ideas; I think I’m going to go with a tropical version for the weekend, add a few exotic fruits and roasted coconuts. To be continued.
