chocolate and berry chia mousse

A GUT LOVING CHOCOLATE TREAT

Our chocolate and berry mousse are a healthy twist on an old favourite. For these, we’re using gut loving homemade yogurt instead of cream, raw honey (or maple) to sweeten them up and chia seeds to create that same thick and creamy mousse texture. Don’t let the healthy ingredients fool you. These chocolate and berry syrup chia mousse might sound less decadent but they’re pretty much still like chocolate heaven in a glass. In fact, they’re so good for you - you can perfectly consider pulling one from the fridge, any time of the day – even at breakfast.

And, they also taste great made dairy-free with homemade coconut yogurt. We’ve given you ingredient options, so you can safely customize the recipe to suit your dietary preferences. 

To get you started, below are the links to all our favourite homemade yogurt recipes:
