Spicy chocolate mousse with almonds

IMG_8838It is that time again for a recipe post and yup it involves chocolate and that is dark chocolate. My love for dark chocolate is still going and going strong:) But it is dark chocolate so an ingestion of plenty of antioxidants, almonds for a boost of healthy fats and protein and a hint of chili for that increase in metabolism kick. See I told you it is full of goodness.

This is taken and adjusted a little from BLK99 Magazine.Check out their first issue published in March, full of fashion/beauty tips and interviews with  various photographers and celebs. A must read:)

Lets get stuck into it. Now I removed the sugar and replaced with agave syrup just to make it healthier.

Ingredients:

-2 tablespoons of chopped almond pieces

-200g of good quality dark chocolate (72 percent)

-1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

-2-3 tablespoon of agave syrup

-4 large egg whites

1/8 teaspoon of salt

-1 fresh hot chilli pepper

How to prepare:

1-Add the chocolate with the pepper flakes and heat over some water in a saucepan to melt the chocolate. Stir continuously until chocolate is melted. Try to resist dipping a spoon in for licking!
