It’s the holidays! It’s so easy to overindulge at this time of year. Even just a nibble here or there adds up. I ❤️ sweets but I try my best not to eat too many at the holidays, so I don’t derail my healthy habits. With my fibromyalgia I have said for years if I eat crap, I feel like crap. The easiest way to avoid the temptations is to make sure I have a little something to treat myself. 😉
This recipe is so simple and you can make it look elegant with a few toppings. And by using full-fat coconut milk, you are getting added health benefits for your heart and immune system. The MCTs found in this milk are good for your gut and the good fats and protein combination help satisfy your appetite.
Peppermint Mocha Mousse
I used 1/2 cup full-fat Coconut milk to every scoop of Orgain protein powder. I used the Orgain Peppermint Hot Cocoa protein powder, but your favorite chocolate one will work well too! My can of coconut milk had been chilled in the fridge so it was thickened up some. Coconut Cream works well too!
Mix well. Sprinkle crushed candy canes, cacao nibs, and a dusting of cacao powder on top. Voila! Instant dessert.
Hint: This protein powder is also a great protein shake or hot beverage too!
