CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Aug 23, 2018

(VEGAN & VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY)

 

One of my favorite things to bring to a social gathering is dessert.  Being a holistic health coach and personal trainer, people always assume that I would never indulge in dessert, WRONG!  I love a chocolaty dessert just as much as the next woman, especially in that time of the month!  I am always tempted to eat desserts when they are around at a party, so I know if I bring a quality dessert, I’m less likely to be tempted by unhealthy options and I will have something that I don't have to feel guilty about.

 

This chocolate mousse recipe is to die for!  It is rich and your one serving will leave you feeling satiated, full and of course just like most ladies that have had their chocolate fix, happy!  It is full of healthy fats, protein, fiber, antioxidants, iron, magnesium, and does not contain processed sugars! Cacao powder has natural elements that have been found to have incredible benefits throughout the body, such as lowering LDL cholesterol, improving heart function, reducing cancer and it is a natural mood lifter and antidepressant.  Sign me up! 

 

Who ever thought dessert could be so good for you?!  Can't wait for you to give this one a try at your next social mixer!
