I whipped this up after school one day when I wanted peanut butter and a healthy snack. There are many other toppings that can be used with this such as Nutella®, extra peanut butter, granola, fruit, oats, graham crackers, cookies, or cereal. The possibilities are endless!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Microwave peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl until liquid and smooth, about 20 seconds.

    Advertisement
  • Stir Greek yogurt into the peanut butter with a spoon until smooth, scraping off any peanut butter stuck to the spoon. Stir in stevia and vanilla extract. Fold in chocolate chips.

Cook's Notes:

For a stronger peanut butter flavor, use up to 3 tablespoons peanut butter.

You can use vanilla Greek yogurt instead. Omit the vanilla extract if you do.

You can omit the chocolate chips and use the mousse as a topping on something else.

1.11.17 First, I must say after looking at the nutritional breakdown, I’m not convinced how “healthy” this is, but I can say that it is delicious. Certainly is quick to prepare, and if piped into a dish or a small glass, actually has good presentation (nice enough for a company dessert). I just sprinkled on a few chocolate chips rather than mixing in, and the consistency is incredibly smooth and peanut-y. Next time, I'm going to add more vanilla Greek yogurt which I think will lighten the mousse texture even more. I can see mixing in some chopped banana or even some crisp pieces of bacon. Sarah, thanks for sharing your recipe. •••••UPDATE 12.25.17••••• FYI, I made this yesterday substituting Nutella for the peanut butter which was a nice variation on this simple dessert. Read More

Not great I thought it wasn't sweet enough. I also didn't like the tartness of the yogurt. It was also way to thick to me called a mouse in my opinion. I may try it again with vanilla yogurt. Read More

I don't like Greek yogurt much, but this was good. I'll definitely try it again sometime. I used natural peanut butter, and at 10 seconds in the microwave, it didn't seem liquid as indicated in the recipe, so I put in for another 10 seconds. That was a mistake, because the peanut butter started to cook--it got thick and grainy. I was still able to incorporate all of it into the yogurt, but it took quite a bit of stirring. Next time, I don't think I need to microwave at all. Also, I think I will try honey to sweeten instead. Read More

I used maple syrup instead of stevia. It was really tasty! I think I'll try mixing in some bananas next time too! Read More

What a fun little dessert! I made this and piped it in chocolate cordial cups so I omitted the chocolate chips. The tang of the yogurt nicely complemented the sweet chocolate. One serving actually filled six cordial cups for a small after dinner dessert. Read More

If I make this again I will put less Greek yogurt in it because I found it a bit too tangy. Quick and easy. Read More
