Extra virgin olive oil is not only an essential ingredient in savory cooking, but it can also be used to prepare sweet dishes. So, if you are a lover of olive oil and sweets, you cannot miss this recipe!
Our suggested dessert is a delicious chocolate mousse with extra virgin olive oil. It may seem strange, but the final product is incredibly creamy and smooth, and the flavor of the olive oil gives it a fresh, herbal touch that perfectly complements the intense flavor of the chocolate.
Start by melting the dark chocolate in a bain-marie and set aside. Next, beat the egg whites until stiff and reserve.
Beat the sugar and egg yolks in another bowl until you get a foamy and homogeneous mixture. Add the liquid cream and the melted dark chocolate, and mix well. Gradually add the beaten egg whites until stiff, and mix with soft and enveloping movements so that the mousse is well aerated.
And as a final touch, add a tablespoon of quality extra virgin olive oil. We advise you to add our 9 Oliveres Premium oil for your sweetest dishes. It will give a smooth and tasty touch to your desserts.
Before serving, mix well and let the mixture rest in the fridge for at least two hours. When the mousse is ready, you can decorate it with some grated dark chocolate, whipped cream, or cocoa powder. And enjoy this delicious healthy dessert!
