I like to think that I don’t have a sweet tooth. I don’t crave candy, and usually end up feeling ill if I binge on too much sugar. I’d like to take a moment to thank my mom for this! Growing up, our candy intake was heavily monitored. So much so that – due to not being allowed to gum – I once tried sneaking some bubble gum from a goodie bag that I got from a friend’s birthday party. The only time I could find to chew my gum in secret was, yep… bedtime.
Long story short, I learned my lesson after a hair cut and my favourite nightgown being thrown out. Oops.
So, while I don’t usually crave sugar, I definitely DO crave chocolate. All the time. And while I enjoy dark chocolate, I don’t love it as much as that creamy, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth-delicious milk chocolate. But as I mentioned above, too much sugar and this girl is not a happy camper, and there’s a heck of a lot more junk in most milk chocolates out there. So, I did some research and found a heavenly, creamy recipe for chocolate mousse…. And a healthy (ish) one to boot! There’s a few of these around actually, so after reading a couple, i decided to try my own take on it. A lot of the recipes I found use banana, but I don’t always include it in my recipe as I feel that the banana flavor can be overpowering. So without further adieu, here it is!
