I absolutely love creating healthy versions of delicious desserts. The best is when you get a final product that’s super easy to make, tastes just as delicious and indulgent as the original recipe, but is so much better for you! Such is the case with this vegan dark chocolate mousse.

What you will need

  • 1 cup dairy free yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (3.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)

Note

How much sugar you will need depends on the sweetness of the yogurt and chocolate. I used dark chocolate and unsweetened vanilla yogurt, so I added 1 tbsp of sugar. If you use already sweetened yogurt and a sweeter chocolate, you may need to add less sugar, or even none at all if you decide that it’s sweet enough. I highly recommend tasting the mousse when you make it to decide how much sugar you want to add.

Making your chocolate mousse

Measure out the chocolate chips and put them in a medium sized microwave-safe bowl.

Melt the chips in the microwave for 30 seconds, then remove from the microwave, stir them with a fork and put them in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat this until the chocolate has fully melted. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate, or it will seize and be ruined.

Pour the yogurt over the melted chocolate and stir them together until the two are well incorporated- it takes a few minutes of stirring before the chocolate melts well into the yogurt, so you might need to stir for a little bit. If you want to add sugar, add it in here.

Once you’ve mixed the yogurt and chocolate, pour them into the cups/ bowls that you will eat them from and place them in the fridge.

This recipe makes 2 large portions or 4 smaller portions.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour so that the chocolate can really harden in the fridge and give the mousse a thick and creamy texture.

I topped mine with some coconut whipped cream, raspberries, and pistachios
