CounterCultural Kitchen || Irish Cream and Chocolate Mousse

This recipe and post has two inspirations behind it:

  1. Christmas! I know Christmas isn’t about food but it is a big part of my family’s celebrations. My mum always has a bottle of Baileys in the house for Christmas.
  2. A healthy relationship with food! I have spent the last two years experimenting with different diets and lifestyles. What I have learnt is that no matter your lifestyle or diet, being restrictive is not good for a healthy mind.

So I have adapted, or reverse-slimmed, one of my favourite desserts from when I did Slimming World with my mum. It was yummy then and I think I’ve made it even yummier now. Yes, they now contain full fat yogurt, double the Irish cream and sugar instead of sweetener. But sometimes we need to learn to put down the diet plan, forget about calories and nutrients, spend too much money on the best ingredients and just enjoy food!

Irish Cream and Chocolate Mousse
In order to get you in the festive spirit, enjoy a full fat, full sugar, boozy chocolate mousse. Just promise me that you won’t drink all the Irish cream in one sitting!*

Irish Cream and Chocolate Mousse with all the good stuff
Yields 4
Reverse-slimmed chocolate mousse because sometimes you need to enjoy food without thinking about the ingredients.

Ingredients
  1. 50g dark chocolate
  2. 3 eggs, separated

  3. Whisk egg yolks, sugar and half the Irish cream together.

  5. In a large, clean bowl, use an electric whisky beat the egg whites until they stand up in stiff peaks.
