Delightful Chocolate Mousse - Gluten-Free and Healthy

I don't know about you, but I need chocolate.  I never used to.  My mom and sister would RAID the house for chocolate around "that time of the month," but me?  I would go for the lemon drops.  (Those were my FAVORITE!  Sour and Sweet!  YUM!)  Nowadays, I need chocolate.  Probably as much as my sister and mom did, but I kind of like it ALL the time.  LOL  So, I had to come up with some sort of "alternative" way to eat it, other than grabbing a candy bar. (Because have you tried the Snickers Peanut Butter?!!!!  Oh. Em. GEE!!!!!  Don't get me started!)

So, one night, in desperation for my dark chocolate fix, I started throwing stuff together.  I have PERFECTED this recipe I tell ya!  I've probably been making it for the past 3 months, but haven't shared it with you because something was "off" (but notice, I still ate it?!!!! LOL)  This whips together VERY quickly and you may even have all the ingredients in your pantry.

Ok, ok, ok.....I wipe your drool already!  I'm getting to it!  I'm getting to it!

Servings: 1

1/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
3/4 tsp. natural peanut butter
1 tsp. organic maple syrup
1 1/4 tsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs

In a bowl, add the yogurt, peanut butter and maple syrup.

Add the cocoa powder, then stir.

Next, add the dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs and stir it up.


I gave this recipe to my good friend Maria to try....(just to be sure it passed) and here's a beautiful photo she took!
