Are you looking for a dessert that is not too tough on the waistline?
I wanted something really amazing and with chocolate on top…..yet gorgeous, and fluffy
The result is an airy, slightly tangy yogurt chantilly…..
I wouldn’t call this dessert “light”…but for sure “lighter” as it has slightly less fat and calories, than a traditional mousse…….
The dessert is a remake from “Gorgeous yogurt “with apricots by pastry chef Luca Montersino….
Following is recipes, you can’t fail…
