If the thought of rich chocolate mousse is too tempting to resist… well, resist the urge no more! My Chocolate Strawberry Avocado Mousse is just the right combo of sweet and savory with its thick consistency, rich chocolate flavor, and savory creaminess from the avocado and yogurt. What’s more? It’s loaded with fiber (11 grams per serving) and healthy fat (heart-healthy, monounsaturated fat)!
Typically when I write my recipes, I will just list a generic whey, casein or blended protein in the ingredients. However, every once in a while I come across a protein that I just can’t help but mention, and Jamie Eason’s signature protein line has led me to do just that! Enjoy!
Keeping our bodies in shape is hard work… and, yes, it absolutely does mean making sacrifices when it comes to the foods that we choose to eat! However, the key is to still enjoy the foods that you love by simply recreating them into a healthy version. That’s what I’m here for! I’ll take the guesswork away from you and bring you new recipes each and every week! It’s all about being creative with good-for-you foods! As my trademark proclaims, I will always do my best to deliver to you: 100% Taste, 0% Guilt! It’s all here for you and ready to go. Each Alli’s Slim Pickins recipe provides detailed ingredients, nutritional information, and step-by-step instructions on how to prepare each mouth-watering meal! Come on, let’s make it happen…
CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY AVOCADO MOUSSE
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop Jamie Eason chocolate Whey Protein Isolate Shake, or whey isolate of choice
1 TB unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch salt (optional)
a few drops coconut or almond extract
1 cup sliced strawberries
How to Prepare
1. Place all ingredients except the strawberries into a food processor.
2. Puree until smooth, stopping when needed to scrape down the sides. (The mixture will be very thick so you can add a little more almond milk, if needed.)
3. Evenly divide the mousse mixture into two servings and top each with half a cup of sliced strawberries. Dig in and enjoy!
OPTION: Garnish with coconut shreds or sliced almonds for added effect (not included in below nutrition)
