Quick Lemon Mousse with Basil and Blueberries

Serves 4

1/3 cup white chocolate chips

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 cup blueberries

4 fresh basil leaves, rolled up and cut cross-wise into thin ribbons

Melt the chocolate with 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave oven, until you can stir the mixture smooth.

In a stand mixer, beat the heavy cream until thick. Add the sugar and continue to beat until firm. Whisk in the yogurt. Whisk in the melted chocolate and the lemon zest.

Divide the mousse evenly between four 6-ounce dessert glasses. Top with half the berries and half the basil. Spoon the remaining mousse over each and top with the remaining blueberries and basil. Serve immediately.
