Chocolate ‘Mousse’

This is a lovely chocolatey dessert which is very easy to make and can really satisfy any cravings for chocolate that you may have.  It is just 1sp per serving, whether following No Count or WW Flex.

 

Ingredients (makes 4):

  • 300g 0% Total Greek yogurt
  • 3 flat tbsp sugar-free maple syrup (I used the Myprotein one – available online)
  • 12g chia seeds (3g per person is free)
  • 32g cocoa powder

Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
  2. Leave to stand for 30 minutes before mixing again. Pour into 4 separate dishes.
  3. Cover the bowls with cling film and leave in the fridge overnight, or for the whole day. The chia seeds will expand slightly allowing the mixture to set more than it normally would.
  4. Top with raspberries just before serving and enjoy!

      1. Thanks Helen do they add anything to this dish or can it be eaten without them ? I would
        Like to try it but don’t want to spoil it

  1. I’ve always been a firm believer in yoghurt/fromage frais with choc options mixed in and used as a dip for fruit. Can’t wait to try this, not tried chia seeds before, however i’ve heard they are packed with omega goodness. Just need the cocoa powder now…..

    1. Hi Julie, hope you enjoy this. The cocoa powder gives it a richer chocolate flavour: it’s great to be able to enjoy a chocolate dessert with mainly healthy ingredients:-) Hope you have a fab week ahead, Helen xxxxxx

  2. Made it and it’s fab. Added sweetener to the mix too and served with strawberries. Tastes so decadent! Thanks, great recipe.

    1. Hi and thank you Val, really glad you enjoyed it! I must try it with strawberries:-) Hope you have a fab week ahead, Helen xxxxxx

  3. Yum! Haven’t made this for a while but I usually make this with a ripe banana and frozen cherries if you want a change from sweeetners 🙂

    1. Thank you Kate. I know a lot of people don’t like using artificial sweeteners so they could try this too. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Helen xxxxx

      1. Hi Rachael, I think you just add a mashed banana and a handful of blitzed cherries to the other mousse ingredients, instead of the sugar-free syrup. Helen xxxx
