Chocolate Protein Mousse
The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that this recipe has been posted before. It has. But not in mousse form: it’s been posted before as frosting.
I originally created this recipe for this Double Chocolate Protein Cake. After making it though, I had some of the frosting left over. And what does one do with leftover frosting? One doesn’t throw it out! One keeps it :-)
So I stuck it in a tupperware to eat on its own the next day post-workout.
I won’t lie to you. I was looking forward to eating the frosting all through my presses and lunges and planks and squats and pulls. I was looking forward to digging into that cold and soft chocolatey frosting, mmmm….
But guess what? It wasn’t frosting what greeted me when I got home from the gym. Nay. It was MOUSSE! Airy and velvety chocolate protein MOUSSE! I devoured it in one sitting and then made it again a couple of days later. And the next day I made it again so I could share it as a stand-alone recipe with you guys. Here goes:
1 big (400g) pot of vanilla Co Yo coconut yogurt
1/4 cup of granulated sweetener (again, I used Sukrin gold)
1/4 cup of vanilla whey, chocolate, or unflavored protein powder
1/4 cup Tiana coconut sugar (or your sweteener of choice0
1/4 cup cartoned coconut milk
4 squares 85% dark chocolate, melted
1/4 cup pea protein powder (or casein)
1/2 TBSP vanilla stevia drops (optional but nice if you like your mousse a bit sweeter)
Blend all frosting ingredients together using a handheld blender or food processor. Taste the frosting to ensure it hits all your nommmmmms. Feel free to add more sweetener or cocoa powder to it (if you want it sweeter or more chocolatey).
Macros (out of 8 servings you get from the mix above): 162kcals, 7.5g protein, 9g carbs, 13.5g fat (mostly from the coconut!)
PPS: The plural of mousse, is it ‘mousses’ or ‘moussi’? Or is it just ‘mousse’? Don’t look it up. Tell me what you think? I’m going with ‘mousse.’
PPPS: Speaking of ‘moussi’, did any of you guys watch Muzzy when you were little?
