I found a recipe for a Chocolate Chia Mousse online a few years ago ad since then, I changed it many times, by adding, changing or taking away ingredients and changing it into Gluten and Lactose Free Chocolate Chia Mousse, to be Low FODMAP.
It’s the easiest dessert in the world. Whenever I have craving for something sweet or specifically for chocolate, I make it. The worst is waiting for it to set!
I used here a lactose free milk, but it is your personal preference, you can use any suitable lactose free or non dairy milk, which you like.
Also, I used sweetener, but if you don’t count calories, you can easily replace it with sugar with a similar content.
Lactose free yogurt is necessary to be added as well as milk, so the consistency is a bit thicker. But you don not need to look for a thick, Greek style lactose free yogurt, because chia seeds with make the mousse ticken anyway, therefore an usual yogurt will do.
Ingredients for 4 servings of a Gluten and Lactose Free Chocolate Chia Mousse:
4 tbsp. cocoa powder
30 g chia seeds
100 ml 2% lactose free milk
(almond milk or other non dairy alternative can be used).
2 tsp. suitable sweetener
(sugar can also be used, but it will change the total nutritional value)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
100 g lactose free yogurt
(it doesn’t have to be a Greek style, lactose free yogurt, a standard one will be good).
Instructions for a Gluten and Lactose Free Chocolate Chia Mousse:
Mix all ingredients well, put in small glass bowls and refrigerate to set for at least 3 h.
This dessert can be served with blueberries, strawberries, chosen nuts (for example almonds) or cacao nibs.
