  • Handful of fresh raspberries

  3. While the mixture is blending gradually add the milk and continue blending until the mousse is smooth and creamy.
  4. If you would like it a little sweeter, add the honey at this stage and divide into serving glasses.
  5. Chill in the fridge for around 15 minutes and top with the raspberries and grated chocolate.
