Healthy Peanut Butter Mousse Recipe
Any sort of mousse is right up my alley. And healthy mousse? Well, that's the best kind! This PB mousse is made from 3 simple, healthy ingredients: peanut butter, Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt, and a little bit of nonfat milk.
I know I've mentioned Dannon's Greek yogurt before (remember this Skinny Funfetti Cake Batter Dip?), but just to re-emphasize: the brand matters in this recipe. I'm not a major Greek yogurt fan in general. There are a few select ways I can really enjoy (and even prefer) the “hardcore” stuff (like Chobani), including my PB Apple Dip and this Pecan Honey Chia Seed Yogurt Bowl. That being said: I think Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt tastes like Cool Whip with a similar consistency (when you whisk it with a little milk), and I adore it for healthi-fying recipes, because it packs a serious protein punch and is low cal.
Of course… feel free to use whatever brand you'd like, but know that Greek yogurt flavors vary greatly by brand depending on how they sweeten the yogurt. So if you opt to use a more “sour” tasting brand, just be aware that your results are going to taste different than mine.
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2/3 cup Dannon Fit & Light Greek Yogurt, vanilla flavor
- 2 tbsp nonfat milk
- Whisk together the peanut butter and the yogurt, adding the milk as needed to thin the consistency. Add more or less milk to taste.
- Serve immediately or chilled.
- Optional: add mini chocolate chips.
