Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries

Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries-1

Ok guys — this might be the best treat of 2015: Chocolate Mousse that you can eat for breakfast!

Sounds too good to be true? I thought so too, until I tried this recipe.

This is a creamy, thick and decadent mousse that’s low in sugar and high in fiber and protein – so it can be a guilt-free dessert OR breakfast!

How is that possible?

Well, thanks to this awesome combination of chia seeds, buckwheat groats, and hemp seeds from Nature’s Path, some unsweetened cocoa powder, a dash of honey, some yogurt to thicken it up, and my trusty blender: I was able to create this chocolate mousse in under 20 minutes.

Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries

I topped it with some fresh raspberries, but you can top it with any fresh fruit you’d like.

This recipe makes four HUGE servings, so you can use it as a grab & go breakfast (save it in 4 mason jars and you can eat each serving throughout the week), or you can divide it into smaller servings and use it as a dessert for your holiday dinner.

Either way, you won’t believe how easy it is to make and how good it tastes!

Chocolate Mousse with Raspberries

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Calories per serving: 253

Fat per serving: 9.4g

Nutritional Info Per Serving: 253 Calories, 9.4g Fat (2.5g Saturated), 55.6mg Sodium, 30.6g Carbs, 8.2g Fiber, 12.9g Sugar, 15.8g Protein

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Nature’s Path Qi’a – Original
  • 1/4 cup organic unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup 1% organic milk
  • 1 tbsp honey (use 2 tbsp honey if you want it to be sweeter)
  • 1 cup plain fat free or 2% Greek yogurt (I used the one from Stonyfield)
  • 20 raspberries
  • Optional: For more of a dessert feel, top with semi sweet dark chocolate chips, or use Chocolate Almond Milk instead of the plain milk. This will increase the sugar content significantly (about 8-10g more per serving)

Directions

  1. Add Qi’a, cocoa powder, milk and honey to blender; purée until smooth. Chill, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until thick.
  2. Fold in yogurt. Divide among 4 serving dishes. Garnish each with fresh raspberries (5 per serving)

Have you ever used soy milk in this recipe?

Reply

Anjali @ The Picky Eater February 23, 2016 at 4:09 pm

Hi Sara! I haven’t used soy milk – but it should work just fine in this recipe. I’d recommend unsweetened soy milk, unless you are going for a real dessert feel, in which case sweetened vanilla soy milk would have more sugar and would make this taste a lot more sweet 🙂 Hope that helps!
