Your new favorite healthy no bake dessert is here! This Low Calorie Protein Mousse recipe is packed with delicious chocolate flavor, easy to make with protein powder, and comes with unlimited variations.
You’ll want to start this one by taking out either a hand mixer or food processor like we’re using today. Alternatively, you could also mix everything together by hand it’ll just take a bit longer.
Add right into whatever you’re using 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/2 of a banana, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 3 packets of your choice sweetener, 3 tablespoons of a powdered peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 scoops of a chocolate protein powder, and 6 ounces of a plain fat free Greek yogurt.
Process or mix everything together for around 3 minutes or until it has the consistency of mousse.
You can switch up the flavor of your low calorie protein mousse by mixing and matching your protein powder and Greek yogurt flavors. Some of my favorite examples? Banana protein powder with vanilla Greek yogurt and salted caramel protein powder with pumpkin Greek yogurt! Let us know what combinations you come up with in the comments below.
To make a quick crust for this protein mousse you have a couple options:
The first option is to crush up a few graham crackers and put them into the bottom of a bowl prior to pouring your mousse in.
The second and my preferred option is to just use a regular or mini pre-made pie crusts (featured below). Mini pre-made pie crusts are cheap and will allow you to easily portion them out!
Optionally top your low calorie protein mousse with some fat free whipped cream or topping, nuts, pieces of a protein bar, and so on.
Pro tip? Put it in the fridge to cool/thicken up before eating.
