View Full Version : ?? about RP's chocolate mousse
07-20-2006, 05:51 AM
i am doing a demo in a couple of weeks and will be featuring the health food store's blenders (blendtec). for a dessert, i thought about doing RP's mousse!
my question is: how is the texture of the mousse right out of the blender, before being refrigerated? i want them to be WOWed.
if this won't work, any other suggestions? i don't want to do any dessert with avocadoes bc brenda cobb was just at this store recently and she did a blender pudding with avos, dates and carob.
thanks in advance for your ever-helpful ideas!
many blessings to all,

i make your brownies all the time -- my husband's a huge fan!
i will try the mousse first, but was just wondering if you think it is thick enough to serve right out of the blender? remember i am only doing one dessert!
and of course, i always give credit where it is due!! :D

Absolutely it is smooth and thick fresh out of the blender, but it can get a little warm, not hot by any means,but slightly warm as you are blending to smooth and creamy,
it is very thick, make sure to take your tamper for your Vita Mix, so you can keep it moving without adding any liquid, and there is a secret.
add the water to the 1 cup line on the container, then add walnuts to the 1 1/2 cup line, this is the secret, don't measure them out, as 1 cup of whole nuts is about 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, so it's hard to determine the right amount.

great tips RP -- thanks!!
i will need to give this a dry run at the health food store bc they have (and sell) blendtec blenders, so i will feature theirs. since i have only worked with my beloved vitamix, i'll need to practice :)
blendtecs don't have tampers, so i hope it'll work well. the idea, of course, is to make the machine AND the recipe seem effortless to use/make. should be fun!!
many blesings to you!

Ask to borrow the manual for the Blendtec beforehand and decide on which button on the keypad will work best for this. Blendtec/Ktec blenders have programs that combined variable speeds to best handle certain ingredients. They start at one speed, operate on that speed for a designated number of seconds, then go to another speed. I like using the number 4 setting. It is my favourite for the smoothies. It starts slow, then bursts up to top speed which is why you very likely don't need a tamper with a Blendtec. But read what is says about the preprogrammed settings and it should be a help.
