White Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Coulis - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

You won’t believe that this amazing dessert is slimming and Weight Watchers friendly! With just a few simple ingredient swaps, you still get the rich and creamy taste, without all the calories. 

We’ve used Options hot chocolate powder, which is a pre-portioned sachet of powder usually reserved for a tasty hot drink. Using it in cooking is an ingenious way of getting a white chocolatey hit in so many recipes without using actual chocolate.

Half fat double cream shaves off tons of calories but you still get the indulgent creamy texture. All in all, it’s hard to believe this sumptuous pud tastes as good as the real thing! 

Have some fun playing with different fruit coulis flavours too: strawberry or blueberry would work really well. Let us know what your favourite flavour combo is!

Step 3

When ready to serve, turn out from the mould (if using) by dipping into some hot water (careful not to get the mousse wet!) and running a thin knife around the edge.

Step 4

Make the coulis by placing all the remaining ingredients into a food processor and blitzing until blended. Place a bowl underneath a sieve and strain the coulis into it to remove all the seeds – you might need to push the liquid through the sieve with a spoon.
