Whisk 1 cup milk and cocoa together until well blended. Heat to boiling in a heavy saucepan; reduce heat and simmer 5 min.

Stir together cornstarch, egg yolk and remaining ¼ cup milk. Stir into cocoa mixture; continue cooking over low heat until mixture thickens.

Mix in gelatin and sweetener until they dissolve. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Chill until partially set. Beat together egg white, skim milk powder and ice water until stiff peaks form. Fold into chocolate mixture.
