Chocolate Mousse – High Protein Low Fat

This recipe for Chocolate Mousse High Protein is so easy to make and eat for breakfast!

One of the issues I commonly see is people drinking coffee first thing in the morning without food. Coffee is great and thyroid healthy ONLY when we drink it properly and that is WITH food. Or at least before or after food. The food part must happen close to the coffee drinking to supply the necessary carbohydrates to support the increase in metabolic rate caused by the coffee. Otherwise, we cause stress to the body, raising cortisol. This is why some people get the jitters and feel terrible. Read more about Coffee Drinking here.

Often, we don’t have time to stop and make something to eat, so this is why pre-prepared, easy-to-grab little bits of nourishing food is so important.

This Chocolate Mousse High Protein recipe is high in the RIGHT protein, low in fat, features enough carbohydrates to support the coffee drinking AND has fruit as well. And to make it even more perfect, it tastes AMAZING too!

Let’s get cooking!

Chocolate Mousse High Protein

Chocolate High Protein Snack
Prep Time10 minutes
Course: Snack
Cuisine: Healthy
Keyword: 5 ingredients
Servings: 8


  • 1 Large Bowl
  • 1 Mixing Spoon


  • 1 500g Cottage Cheese 17.64oz
  • 1 410g Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 can 14.46oz
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter Powder
  • 1 670g Jar of sour cherries 23.63oz


  • Drain the liquid from the cherries and set the liquid & cherries aside separately.
  • Add all ingredients into a bowl except the cherries & mix with a spoon until well combined.
  • Add the cherries & stir through.
  • From here I portion out the mix into 4 x 1 cup sized plastic containers and store in the freezer until needed.
  • Place one container in the fridge to thaw out, if you are planning to eat it the next day.


  • You may eat this recipe as ice cream too!
  • If you are planning to eat it every day, you can store it in the fridge for about 7 days. I just prefer the freezer as it keeps longer, and I’m not forced to have it before it goes off. 
  • My cottage cheese is the smooth type that doesn’t have curds – it’s more like a Skyr or European cottage cheese. I can just mix it with a spoon and it’s smooth and fluffy. If your cottage cheese is different, you may need to use a food processor or stick blender to get it smooth.
  • The sour cherries go perfectly with all the sweet, however it still tastes amazing without them too. Add any fruit you have that you think would work with chocolate!
  • The peanut butter powder is optional but makes it taste awesome. As nearly all the PUFA fats are removed, it’s an ok food to have once in a while.

I find myself making this recipe at least once every 2 weeks to stock up the freezer. It just takes a few minutes and is the perfect quick breakfast option, with all the necessary macros to go with coffee. I love pro metabolic food!

Happy cooking!

Raw cacao chocolate may not be such a super food.

chocolate cake

Boo! Devastated.

I know, right?

Unfortunately, we’ve all been sucked in (me included, big time,) by the marketers who conveniently leave out the bad bits, when singing the praises of raw cacao.

So while it may have some benefits, for some people the bad outweighs the good and problems arise. Let’s just say, it’s no bone broth!

Chocolate Cheesecake Fudge

Chocolate Cheesecake Fudge

Just another quick little recipe that I have featured on Instagram before but haven’t managed to post here – Chocolate Cheesecake Fudge.

In the past, if there was ever a choice of cake going around, my preference was always cheesecake. Not sure why, but it just hit the spot. The more I learn about good fats, blood sugar spikes with too much starchy carbs and the rest of the havoc caused by wheat products (currently reading Wheat Belly by William Davis MD and having mind blown,) I am coming to understand more why my body would choose this higher fat treat option. It knows best!

Protein Bar Chewy Chocolate

healthy, weightloss, raw cacao, coconut oil

This Protein Bar recipe was another accident as I am still on my quest to make a brownie type of treat without a truckload of dates in it. Everything still turns out yum, if not an interestingly different texture to what I envisaged. However once again it’s good enough to add to the recipe list and something I would make again.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bites

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

One of my favourite things about simple recipes is that you can sometimes just add one more ingredient to the mix and it completely changes it to a new taste sensation. And this is what happened here for these Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bites.

I had Philly cheese in the house for some reason and was making my PB Protein Balls and my usual weekly batch of Homemade Chocolate and decided to mix it in and the result was a decadent ‘to-die-for’ dessert that’s super healthy!

Homemade Peppermint Patties

peppermint, dessert,

Peppermint and chocolate is a fantastic combination. These Homemade Peppermint Patties are the only dish with peppermint that doesn’t taste like toothpaste to me.

I put together this recipe last year but have made a slight change, as I didn’t like the way the coconutty part was a bit crumbly. Macadamia nuts to the rescue as their oil content helps the ‘stick it’ factor and mild taste takes on the flavour of whatever you put with it.

Ta daah peppermint patties perfection.

White Chocolate Fudge

Healthy Fudge, White Chocolate, Slim Birdy

So I was remembering my younger days and my preference in chocolate was always the milk chocolate type, not dark as that seemed too bitter. Super sweet white chocolate inspired this Healthy White Chocolate Fudge and luckily when you make it yourself, you can adjust the sweetness to suit.

Homemade Chocolate…and a new buttery twist.

Homemade chocolate is so easy to make, you’ll wonder why you’ve never done it before!

One of my big revelations when I finally worked out how to lose weight was that you don’t have to completely give up the taste of the stuff you like to eat. You just need to tweak it and make it at home. So it goes from being junk food, with no nutritional value, toxins, and chemicals that your body can’t recognise, to something so amazingly good for you. It still tastes fantastic, but now with amazing nutrition as well so it has an automatic off switch, making binge eating or over eating a thing of the past.

So one of the foods that most people absolutely love is chocolate.

Macadamia Chocolate Toffee


A decadent Macadamia Chocolate Toffee recipe should be in everyone’s bag of tricks!

The success of my Sesame Snaps sent me off onto other creative tangents as to what else I could toffee snap using the same method and nearly the same ingredients.

I think I mentioned my oats/raisins disaster – probably for the best as I don’t eat oats and was just trying it for my husband. He gave it the resounding thumbs down, so we stick to the original sesame for him.

However I thought my all time favourite macadamia nuts might do the trick as they are buttery and delicious, especially when roasted and I wasn’t disappointed. (Drool, drool.)
