Healthy Chocolate Mousse

My only regret with this recipe is the picture doesn’t do it justice! This decadent, guilt-free snack has become a staple in my nightly routine. Currently my only ‘lower carb’ meal is the one I have right before bed. I ensure that I have some sort of healthy fat incorporated to keep me satiated while I sleep. I have posted about ‘smoothie bowls’ before containing avocado with Magnum Quattro protein (the BEST 😉 ) but this switch up makes for a smaller, yet rich and satisfying meal resembling more of a dessert. I really can’t get enough avocado… and chocolate… I’m female, ’nuff said. I give you “Healthy Chocolate Mousse”! Enjoy!!

Recipe

1/2 ripe avocado, medium (approx 2 oz.)

1/2 scoop (or 2 tbsp) Magnum Quattro protein in Chocolate Love/Chocolate Peanut Butter Addiction**

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your milk of choice)

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Splenda/stevia, to taste

Dash cinnamon (optional)

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients in food processor/blender on medium-low speed until smooth, no visible lumps. You may add more/use less milk, depending on desired consistency: I like mine to resemble chocolate pudding.
  2. Pour contents  into a bowl and enjoy!!

 

*Yields one serving

**May add more protein powder depending on nutritional needs; may need more milk for consistency
