Skinny Chocolate Mousse

Wait…but…is “skinny” and “chocolate mousse” legally even allowed to appear side-by-side in the same sentence, you wonder?

It is when describing this sumptuously low-fat, low-glycemic and high-protein dessert.

How does this café-worthy classic confection merit such a healthy description? By abandoning traditional ingredients like refined sugar, cholesterol-laden yolks and fatty creams, achieving the same swoon-worthy, silky sweet decadence with ingredients like high-fiber dates, soft tofu and Greek yogurt instead.

The best part is what you get for those 5 grinding minutes of very good blender behavior – a light, fluffy chocolate mousse that your mouth won’t soon forget. Even though your waistline will.
