Chocolate Mousse

Families Magazine is proud to bring you 20 healthy and easy to make snacks with recipes included!

Chocolate mousse

Serves 2 – 3, prep time 5 mins


  • 1 cup reduced fat Ricotta
  • 1/2 cup low fat vanilla yoghurt (or try berry)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons pure cocoa (100%)
  • *Optional
  •  Fresh berries
  • Choc chips
  • Crushed Nuts
  • Coconut
  • Orange Zest


  • Simply whisk together your Ricotta, yoghurt and cocoa and garnish!

So quick and simple! I didn’t think it needed any extra sweetness as the vanilla yoghurt I used was already sweet, but you could of course add a little sugar if you wanted.
