A question about a recipe: Hervé This' Chocolate Mousse

I have a question about the recipe "Hervé This' Chocolate Mousse" from Genius Recipes. Has anyone made this using a Vitamix? Do you think it would work or too much power?

I don't think so. It looks like it needs to be blended to incorporate air into the mix. Something that vitamix doesn't really do. Do you have a stick blender with a aerator disk?
Or put in the stick blender in tall bar glass and lift to incorporate air.

Actually, on further reading of the recipe (I read to quickly). It looks like you DON'T want emulsion. So, maybe just a stainless bowl and whisk for better control. Either way, it looks like a learning thing. Good luck.

I would be less concerned about having too much power and more concerned about the fact that his recipe calls for chilling the mixture as it's mixed.

Here's a totally different take on chocolate mousse that's made with a Vitamix: http://joyofblending.com...

It comes together really quickly and isn't difficult - quicker than whipped cream for example. But the transformation happens quite suddenly.

Since you asked the question 2 months ago, have you tried it yet? Results?

Not with the Vitamix. The KA hand mixer did the job quickly.
