Jan here, having fun as we get all into this spring thing, slimming and trimming, and feeling good.... But what's this? I offer you a recipe for Peanut Butter Mousse?
Don't worry - it's low carb and delicious. If you're a Trim Healthy Mama, this is an S snack or dessert. For everyone else, it's low carb and gluten free.
I got this recipe from a blog called All Day I Dream About Food. You'll have to go check out these recipes!
This one is so easy to make, it's called 5 Minute Peanut Butter Mousse in the original version. Like always, I fudged with the recipe a bit. You'll have to try both the original version and mine, and see which you like better.
1/2 cup whipping cream
3 ounces "1/3 less fat" cream cheese (softened)
3 Tablespoons natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons Truvia (or to taste)
Dark chocolate bar (at least 85% cacao) (optional)
You'll need two medium bowls.
In the first one, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. I used my hand rotary beater.
In the second bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla and Truvia. Beat until light and fluffy.
Add the whipped cream, and beat it some more until it's well blended and creamy.
Spoon the mousse into a custard cup or dish and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
You can decorate the mousse with shaved dark chocolate, like I did, or leave it plain.
This was a delicious treat! Since I used crunchy peanut butter, the mousse had a bit of a crunchy texture, but that just added to the experience.
Who says eating healthy and losing weight means we have to suffer?
I'll leave you with a gratuitous puppy picture. A year old, and he still can't keep his ears straight!
