How Many Syns In Aero Chocolate Mousse? Are They High In Syns?
If you're the kind of person who loves a sweet treat after dinner, you might be struggling to find some syn-friendly desserts to have on the plan, but what about mousses like Aero chocolate mousse, are they high in syns?
Aero chocolate mousse desserts have on average 5 syns a serving, making them average in syns, but should be consumed within moderation since just three could cost you your whole daily syn allowance if you are not careful.
In our guide below, we have discussed in more detail why Aero chocolate desserts have syns, some syn values, low syn alternatives and an SW recipe for making your chocolate mousse at home to save syns!
Why Do Aero Chocolate Desserts Have Syns?
At 5 syns a pot, Aero chocolate mousse desserts are neither high nor low in syns, allowing you to have up to three of these mousses before using all your 15 syns for the day. These chocolate mousses get their syn value from the sugar in them, having 13g of sugar in just one pot.

This recipe below has 4.5 syns per mousse.
60g of dark chocolate broken up.
One spoon of sweeteners.
Three eggs split into yolk and whites.
Half an orange zested.
Drop of vanilla extract.
A teaspoon of cocoa powder.
Three spoons of fat-free fromage frais for serving.
Begin by melting your chocolate using a double boiler method then mix your egg whites, orange zest, sweetener and vanilla extract into a bowl, and stir in with the chocolate.
Beat your egg whites with a mixer in another bowl and fold into your chocolate mix, pour into four glasses then serve with your raspberries and fromage frais.
To conclude, Aero chocolate mousse pots have 5 syns per pot, making them average in syns, but should be eaten within moderation on the plan when your syns allow due to their high sugar content. To save syns we recommend choosing lighter mousse versions which start as low as 4 syns and often have less sugar/fat.
