Healthy Chocolate Mousse

This recipe along with my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough would have my top recipe request and I keep forgetting to post about it (whoops). 

This is also probably the only recipe I'll ever make using a "special" type of ingredient that can't be substituted since its what changes some Yoghurt and Cocoa Powder into a mousse like consistency and that special ingredient is PB2 powder - Original or Chocolate both work. 

If you live in countries like the US, PB2 should be pretty widely available and while its pretty hard to find in shops in NZ and is a lot more expensive ($20 upwards for a small tub) it can be done. But I get mine from here - where a big tub (double the size of a small tub) ranges anywhere from NZ$13 to NZ$15 depending on the exchange rate at the time and if you use the code "QJM503" at the check out to get $10 off your order. 

And while you can use an ingredient like Peanut Flour I wouldn't recommend it as it doesn't become as thick or have the same amount of flavour as PB2 considering PB2 is powdered peanut butter rather than only dried peanuts. 

Now onto the recipe: 


- 150g pottle of any type of Yoghurt 
 -2 Tspn of PB2 Powder 
- 1 Tspn Cocoa Powder 
- Sugar/sweetener to taste 
- Any other flavourings you want, though not essential - Mint or Orange Essence, Natural Peanut Butter ect ** If your adding anything other than Peanut Butter as your flavouring or just want a plain Chocolate Mousse, I would recommend using the Chocolate flavour rather than the Original**


- Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix until theyre all combined and you have a thich mousse like consistency 
- Add whatever toppings you desire - I love pouring in some Oats and adding a scoop of Natural Peanut Butter 

If you decide to try this recipe please tag me on Instagram @fragiletofit I would love to see your recreations and what you though of it. 

Happy cooking,
