Chocolate Protein Mousse

Even though I follow a healthy food plan, I still enjoy comfort food during stressful times. Lately I’ve been thinking about chocolate mousse, and created this Chocolate Protein Mousse to satisfy the craving. It’s light, creamy, and delicious!

I started with a typical raw vegan chocolate mousse recipe with avocado from Living on Live Food. I lightened up on the sweetener and used chocolate whey protein powder.

Keeping with the raw vegan inspiration, I garnished it here with a small piece of raw chocolate.

I hope you’ll give this Chocolate Protein Mousse a try. It’s a healthy, delicious, high-protein chocolate treat!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a food processor or blender, combine avocado, water, agave and almond butter until smooth.
  2. Add chocolate whey powder and cacao powder, and process until smooth.
  3. For a more firm texture, refrigerate before serving.
  4. Enjoy!
Notes
A note about substitutions: You can substitute casein powder for the whey powder. If you prefer plant protein, you could use Vega Sport Chocolate, Warrior Blend, or a similar pea blend. Other vegan powders are chalkier, and wouldn’t work well. For a paleo mousse, replace the agave with raw honey or your preferred paleo sweetener. Maple syrup can also be used to replace the agave nectar.
Almond butter can be made by processing almonds in a food processor.
