Steamed Chocolate Milk Custard

I really like those food that has silky smooth texture.. Like soy beancurd, steam eggs custard etc.. This can be justified by the recent posts that I've posted up.. Hehe..


Please pardon me for doing the same range of things over and over again.. I'm trying to explore with new type of food and flavours.. Hee =P

Today after dinner made myself a chocolate-y dessert.. I like this very muchie... Cos I like my chocolate to be slightly bitter.. I don't like sugary food as well and this is not overly sweet.. So it suits my tastebuds very well!

Steamed Chocolate Milk Custard

Ingredients

130mL chocolate milk
30mL water
1.5 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp honey
1 egg white

Methods
  1. Heat up water in a saucepan, and stir till cocoa powder and honey dissolves. Remove and set aside till cool.
  2. Add in the cooled chocolate mixture and egg white into the chocolate milk. Stir well to mix.
  3. Strain mixture into a bowl and steam over low heat for 12minutes.
  4. Serve warm or chilled

This dessert is a much healthier version of a chocolate pudding.. as it doesn't use cream and butter. And I only use egg whites, which greatly reduces the fat content of this dessert. And trust me, its really smooth.. Really enjoy eating this very much! I guess I will make this whenever the chocolate cravings kicks in!

Updates: I tried experimenting it using chocolate milk (minus the water), and it does make a difference to the texture, its more rough and less silky. In my point of view, it wasn't as nice as the orignal one.

I can't wait to make it, drool. But I can't, at least not this week. I started to eat less and light plus regular exercise in gym to burn fat I gained from CNY. But no pay, no gain and sure I will make it to pamper my stomach after I lose a bit in weight.
