Healthy Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate Mousse is a typical unhealthy dessert with heavy cream, sugar, egg yolks, and sometimes even butter… but not this one, this recipe is actually healthy!
This is thick, rich, smooth, creamy, sweet, chocolatey, flavorful, decadent. And it’s rich. Oh wait, did I already say that? Well, I’ll just keep saying it because it’s twice as rich as anyone would ever guess or possibly imagine.
Oh, this Healthy Chocolate Mousse can totally work as a frosting too, that’s how sweet, thick and creamy it is. Once it chills overnight and firms up you can frost or pipe some onto cakes and cupcakes. Or you can just ladle some into your face… you know, the typical serving ideas 😉
Just to prove to you how much better my Healthy Homemade Chocolate Mousse is, I am including a nutrition label comparison between Martha Stewart’s recipe and the Desserts With Benefits recipe. Martha’s nutrition label is on the left, the DWB nutrition label is on the right:
I didn’t realize how different two recipes of the same dish could be. My recipe is actually moderate in calories, fat and carbs while Martha’s recipe is the complete opposite of a nutritionally balanced dessert… 450 calories, 38g of fat and 25g of saturated fat?! That’s just insane. I think we can all agree that my recipe is better, nutrition-wise and taste-wise, yes?
