Nutritional values

Oranges provide a lot of vitamin C  in addition to their strong flavor. The deep red pomegranate seeds also have something nutritional to offer; among other things they contain so-called phytoestrogens which are especially good for women in menopause.

Thanks to yogurt, this version of the classic mousse au chocolat is extra light and airy. If you'd like your mousse even lighter, simply replace half the sugar with liquid sweetener.
