This is hands down my new favorite treat. These little mousses take only two ingredients and can be whipped up in literally less than two minutes. And they’re completely healthy. I know, right?
So Dustin and I are back on the healthy bandwagon. We’re on week three of trying to eat the diet that came with our exercise program (T25 from Beachbody). Mostly, we do pretty well, but Dustin cannot abide plain greek yogurt. And to tell the truth, I struggle with eating it straight up too. We agree it tastes a lot like a bowl full of sour cream. I figured I’d just buy a flavored version, but when I checked the sugar content, I put it right back. Those things have as much sugar as cookies!
So we were planning to gut it through for the next 7 weeks. But as I was preparing Dustin’s yogurt bowl snack last week, I saw some sugar-free Jello packets a friend gave me, and the light bulb turned on. I poured a packet into his yogurt, swirled it round, and tasted it. Instead of sour cream, the glorious flavor of raspberries hit my taste buds.
This can be done with any Jello flavor, and with any pudding flavor. We’ve been eating this as a dessert with sugar-free chocolate pudding swirled in, and it tastes heavenly. Honestly, I would eat this even if we weren’t trying to work on our diet.
Now, full disclosure: we’ve been calling this mousse at our house for lack of a better term. It does not have the light consistency of standard mousse, but it does taste a lot like it, and we love the rich creaminess the greek yogurt gives this dessert. As long as you’re not a mousse purist, this is an amazingly delicious dessert you can enjoy with out hurting your health goals. If you are a mousse purist, go ahead and give it another name, and enjoy!
