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)

Instructions

  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)

  1. I just love, love, love chocolate mousse, and happy that you shared your own take on it by using delicious raspberry. Makes it all the more tasty and delicious as well.

  2. Hi Anjali! I just found out about your blog! I love how you make things simple, delicious and beautiful! We eat with our eyes, don’t we? I just can’t take my eyes off those beautiful raspberries and the color of the chocolate mousse looks very inviting!

  3. Hi Anjali! This recipe looks amazing, delicious and divine in picture. This is exactly what I needed for myself. It’s about time that I learn to make one for myself and for my family as well. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Looks yummy and I hope it tastes yummy too. Any chocolate is comfort food for me. Would love to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

    • 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!
