You know those moments when you’re craving chocolate .. but you don’t want to go over-board and indulge in a massive bar of chocolate (for the sake of your waist-line?!).. well here is the solution.. Chocolate Protein Mousse made with just 4 ingredients! And if you’re used to my recipes then you should have the ingredients already in your fridge.

 

This dessert/snack recipe is packed with protein (from the whey and Greek yoghurt) which will leave you feeling fuller for longer and the chocolate flavours are enhanced by the cocoa and sweetener. Cocoa, as well as tasting amazing, is packed with antioxidants which keep us healthy.

 

I’ve included a protein-powder free version of this mousse too (see below the ingredients list for information!) and if you like the sound of this recipe and want something slightly more indulgent/suitable for a dinner party then check out my Chocolate (vegan) Mousse made with Avocado!

 

Do send me a picture on social media (links to the right!) if you make this recipe.. nutritional stats FYI are for when you use 0% Green Yoghurt (my favourite as it’s the highest in protein and lowest in sugar) and the recipes serves one person!

 

Ingredients

  • 200g 0% or 2% Greek yoghurt
  • 30g chocolate protein powder*
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 10g xyltiol or 2 tsp sweetener/coconut sugar

*If you don’t have or use protein powder you can use a low calorie hot chocolate powder! I use Protein Dynamix and you can get 20% off with the discount code NIC20.

      Hey! Did you use Greek yoghurt or Greek style yoghurt? The latter is less thick!
