I was craving something cheesecake like, but I didn’t feel like buying cream cheese or baking. I then wanted something mousse-y, but didn’t want straight up chocolate mousse.
Greek yogurt was on sale in my supermarket. So was some 70% dark chocolate. I decided to combine both and make a “cheesecake-like” tasting mousse. It was a smooth, rich, chocolate-y and cheesecake-y tasting. Pure bliss in my mouth.
Each serving averages 170 calories depending on what ingredients you are using. Mines had 10g of protein and 11g sugar, which is totally not bad for a decadent dessert. This recipe is super simple, high protein and above all, scrumptious. Enjoy! Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse Ingredients:
- 1 Cup of Vanilla Chobani Greek Yogurt (or your choice)
- 100g of Dark Chocolate (70% or higher)
- 1/2 Tbsp of Non-Dairy Milk or Already Made Coffee
- 1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
- 1 Packet of Stevia (Optional, but I like it sweet!)
- 2 Egg Whites
- Dash of Salt
In a small bowl or cup, whisk your egg whites with the vanilla extract, sugar and dash of salt. Whisk until you see it beginning to “foam” a bit. Set aside. Place chocolate and non-dairy milk (or coffee) into a small pot and place onto stove with a low flame. Stir slowly as chocolate begins to melt.
Just when the chocolate is almost completely melted, add the egg white mixture and whisk very well until chocolate and egg mixture is combined. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
Then fold in your Greek yogurt into the chocolate mixture and blend until yogurt and chocolate are well combine. Divided mixture amongst four glasses, chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes (if desired) and serve with chocolate shavings and/or raspberries!Question: What’s your favorite high protein dessert recipe?
