Secretly Healthier Chocolate Mousse

4.8 from 12 reviews


  • 3 large eggs, separated into yolks and whites
  • 3/4 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together egg yolks, Greek yogurt, brown sugar, flour, and sea salt. Place over low heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened slightly.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the chocolate chips and stir until they melt into the egg yolk mixture. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a standing mixer, whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Slowly drizzle in melted chocolate mixture, folding carefully as to not deflate the egg whites. Fold until homogenous.
  4. Pour mousse into 8 small ramekins, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours (up to 5 days) before serving! Optional toppings: whipped cream and chocolate shavings!
