Guilt-free Chocolate Mousse
Prep time: 15-20 minutes Servings: 6
1/2 cup extra-dark, bitter-sweet
chocolate morsels (melted)
2 avocados (removed from
1 scoop chocolate protein
powder (1.5 oz.)
1⁄2 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
1⁄2 cup almond milk
1⁄4 cup agave nectar
1⁄4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup strawberries for garnish (halved)
soy whipped cream (optional)
In a small saucepan on low heat, melt chocolate chip morsels. Be sure to stir frequently to avoid burning.
In a food processor or blender, combine your melted chocolate with the avocados, chocolate protein powder, yogurt, almond milk, agave nectar, salt, and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
Transfer to a bowl and cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight for a firmer mousse, or you can eat right away if you just can’t wait!
Serve with a swirl of soy whipped cream and a strawberry garnish.
