This fluffy, light, and intense chocolate mousse is made with only two ingredients in just a few moments. It's hard to resist and even harder to guess what it's made from. It's a must-have in any recipe collection.

Not only is this chocolate mousse quick and easy to prepare, but it also tastes fantastic, and its ingredients are straightforward. Dark chocolate and fruit puree are the two critical components of this specialty, creating one of my favorite desserts. It so convincingly "imitates" a natural mousse that adults and children are fooled by it.

How to make light chocolate mousse?

This chocolate mousse tastes excellent and doesn't leave you feeling guilty. You can confidently add it to your diet because it's made from fruits and dark chocolate. Of course, the best choice would be dark chocolate with a high cocoa content. It's worth noting that this type of chocolate has the highest calorie content—dark chocolate with 60% cocoa contains about 516 calories in 3.5 ounces. It's important to remember the invaluable properties of cocoa and dark chocolate, which we discussed HERE.

The other ingredient of the chocolate mousse is fruit puree. You can use apple puree, which provides sweet and slightly sour notes and will make the dessert lighter and fluffier. You can prepare apple puree from 2-3 stewed and mashed apples. Alternatively, you can use bananas—such mousse will be "heavier" than apple mousse but will work just as well. It's best to use slightly browning fruits and blend them until smooth. After mixing the ingredients and spending a few moments in the refrigerator, the chocolate mousse acquires a firm consistency.
