Low Fat Chocolate Souffle Recipe

Im a big time dessert lover and eating traditional desserts made me BIG TIME!  Or at least BIG!  Having said that, let me assure you I didnt lose 150 pounds (twice) by forgoing desserts.  Living a healthy lifestyle is exactly that a lifestyle and I dont want any part of a lifestyle that doesnt include desserts as often as I feel like dessert.

This delicious low fat chocolate souffle recipe is a wonderfully decadent dessert, but with only 4% fat, you dont need to save it for special occasions (although its certainly company worthy).  Its easy to make, so even if youve been skerrrred to make souffles before, no worries!  I wouldnt steer you wrong.  This is EASY and DELICIOUS!

Serve with fresh berries and non-fat whipped cream.  I use my ISO Whipped Cream Maker with skim milk, vanilla and a packet of Splenda (or real sugar if you prefer).

To serve four, use five teaspoons flour and double the remaining ingredients. Doubling the flour would make the base too heavy.


2 servings (serving size: 1 soufflé)


  • Cooking spray
  • 4 1/2  tablespoons  granulated sugar, divided
  • 1  tablespoon  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  Dutch process cocoa (use the best quality you can get your hands on)
  • 2  tablespoons  fat-free milk
  • 1/4  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  large egg white
  • 1  teaspoon  powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°.

Coat 2 (6-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray; sprinkle each with 3/4 teaspoon granulated sugar.

Combine 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, flour, cocoa, and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes, stirring until smooth. Spoon chocolate mixture into a medium bowl; cool 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla.

Place egg white in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Gently stir 1/4 of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Sharply tap dishes 2 or 3 times to level. Place dishes on a baking sheet; bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until puffy and set. Sprinkle each soufflé with 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
