Mocha Velvet

This is a beautiful easy dessert which has an unusually light consistency but is not as heavy as a mousse. I serve it sometimes in individual bowls with chocolate dipped strawberries on top and piped cream.


  • 1 cup water

  • .5 cup of sugar

  • 2.5 to 3 teaspoons of instant coffee powder (depending on your taste)

  • 1 tbsp Kahlua

  • 1 dessertspoon gelatine

  • 1 tin Carnation evaporated milk


  • 1.

    Mix all ingredients except milk in a small saucepan until dissolved. Take off heat and stir in milk. Pour into a decorative bowl and put in fridge to set (better to make the day before and leave overnight in the fridge to make sure it is set properly).

  • 2.

    Garnish with piped whipped cream and fruit of your choice or shavings of chocolate on top of the cream.

  • 3.
