White Chocolate and Coconut Mousse with Matcha

Method

Combine the cream cheese, chocolate and coconut cream in a bowl and whisk over a pot of simmering water until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk through the matcha, lime rind and juice then allow to cool down completely in the fridge.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, and then gradually beat in the sugar until dissolved to make a light meringue. Lightly stir a third of the meringue into the chocolate mixture, then fold through remaining meringue.

Divide mixture between serving glasses. Refrigerate for at least 2-4 hours. Decorate with tropical fruit.

Serve immediately.
