Express chocolate foamy creams ~ 2 versions~

A few days ago I found myself with some leftover cream cheese and was looking for the right idea to use it. There, I thought of the express chocolate mousse from Carol. It was just what I needed to satisfy a chocolate craving, in minutes.
And yes, to make these mousses, or rather these frothy creams, you don’t have to do almost anything. It is not even necessary to melt the chocolate, or whip the egg whites. Just put everything in a blender robot and let the device run. Real child’s play.
From this emulsion, after refrigeration, we obtain a foamy and light cream, melting in the mouth. A real pleasure!

One can imagine different variants. My favorite is the cream cheese and coffee one that I like to serve with a little whipped cream to recreate a Liège chocolate. My children prefer another version, with banana.
To tell the truth, it is very difficult to choose between the two, they are so delicious.

Express chocolate foamy creams
:

Cream cheese version:

240g dark chocolate (64%)
120 g of St Moret (or Philadelphia)
4 eggs (at room temperature)
50g brown sugar
1 tbsp amaretto
240g strong coffee

100 g liquid cream (35%)
1 tbsp icing sugar

Prepare the coffee. It is imperative that it be very hot.

I use my Thermomix, but any blender will do.
In the bowl, put the coarsely chopped chocolate, the St Moret cheese, the eggs, the brown sugar and the amaretto.
Mix for 1 minute at maximum speed (7/8 on the Thermomix) to mix everything well.

Without stopping the appliance, gradually add the very hot coffee.
Leave to mix for another 3 minutes.

Pour into 8 glasses.
Reserve a few hours in the fridge.

Whisk the cream and icing sugar into whipped cream and spread over the creams.
Decorate with chocolate shavings.

Banana version:

240g dark chocolate (64%)
150g banana (ripe)
4 eggs (at room temperature)
30g brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract (recipe here)
240g milk

Heat the milk, without boiling it.

Put the coarsely chopped chocolate, the banana in pieces, the eggs, the brown sugar and the vanilla in the blender.
Mix for 1 minute at maximum speed (7/8 on the Thermomix) to mix everything well.

Without stopping the appliance, gradually add the very hot milk.
Leave to mix for another 3 minutes.

Pour into 8 glasses.
Reserve a few hours in the fridge.

Serve with banana chunks and chocolate shavings.

Finally: there are many variations. You can really have fun combining these and even imagining others. Sugar can be replaced by honey for example. You can also flavor with other alcohols, such as Cointreau.
Instead of coffee or milk, it is for example possible to use coconut milk. You can even make whipped cream by whipping coconut cream.

However, do not replace the dark chocolate with another chocolate. The result would not be the same at all.


I’m counting on you to come back and tell me which is your favorite version…
