Espresso Dessert with Mascarpone

This is a creamy concoction that is quickly made and can be prepared just before the guests arrive. It needs just 30 minutes in the fridge to firm up a little. When you have the ingredients in the house, it will be a last minute dessert to make.

I do not like desserts when they are too sweet. In this dessert it is easy to adjust the sweetness to the level you prefer. When I have a cup of espresso, I put some sugar in, but less then most people do. The Oriental cafe you get abroad is cooked with sugar already and have to drink it as it is.

Use an electric helper, that makes it easier to beat the thick cream into a smooth one.

recipe for 4:
250 g mascarpone
100 g cream cheese
100 g double cream
1 cup strong espresso
2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp coconut flower sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla

Beat mascarpone, cream cheese and double cream together. Add the other ingredients and beat until soft and fluffy.
Fill into a container and put into the fridge for 30 minutes.

When you serve it, you can use some fresh fruits to give the rich cream a good balance.
