  • 3 tablespoons of good quality instant coffee
  • 1 can 14 oz condensed milk
  • 5 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 egg whites


  • Bring the water to a boil in a small pot then remove from heat. Mix 2 tablespoons of water with the coffee in a small bowl. Mix 3 tablespoons of water with the gelatin in another small bowl until the gelatin dissolves.
  • Place the coffee mixture and condensed milk in a blender and blend for about 2 minutes. Add the dissolved gelatin to the blender and blend for 1 more minute.
  • In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer beat the heavy cream for about 3 minutes. Fold the whipped cream into the coffee mixture.
  • Using an electric mixer beat the egg whites and sugar in a clean bowl until stiff.
  • Add half of the egg whites to the mixture, gently folding to incorporate them. Don't overwork the mixture. Add the rest of the whites and fold the mixtures together.
  • Spoon the mixture into individual serving glasses or bowls and refrigerate for about 5 hours or overnight. Serve with whipped cream and grated chocolate on top.


*For serving the coffee mousse, you can use  juice glasses, martini glasses, cute bowls or espresso cups.
*This mousse needs to set in the fridge for at least 3 hours before serving, so plan accordingly.
*Mousse can be made up to 1 day ahead of time. Cover with plastic well with plastic wrap and keep  in the refrigerator. Add whipped cream topping and chocolate shavings before serving.
