100 g (31/2 oz/2/3 cup) white chocolate melts (buttons)
125 ml (4 fl oz/1/2 cup) skim milk
2 teaspoons powdered gelatine
400 g (14 oz) low-fat vanilla fromage frais or whipped yoghurt
3 egg whites
3 tablespoons passionfruit pulp, plus extra to serve

Bring all the ingredients to room temperature to help ensure the mousse has a smooth texture.

Put the chocolate melts and milk in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the chocolate has melted. Allow to cool.

Pour 60 ml (2 fl oz/1/4 cup) boiling water into a heatproof bowl, sprinkle evenly with the powdered gelatine, then stir until dissolved. Using a wooden spoon, stir the gelatine into the chocolate mixture.

Put the fromage frais in a large bowl and gradually stir in the chocolate mixture, a little at a time, stirring until smooth after each addition.

Beat the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl using electric beaters until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the chocolate mixture with the passionfruit pulp. Divide among eight 125 ml (4 fl oz/ 1/2 cup) serving dishes or a 1 litre (35 fl oz/4 cup) glass bowl.

Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until set. Serve garnished with a small dollop of passionfruit pulp.

cooks tip * Use fresh raspberries instead of the passionfruit pulp
