This is a changed recipe for a Chocolate Chia Mousse that you can find here.
I make this dessert a lot, whenever I feel like something chocolatey and lower in calories. Here it is made with a sugar, but it can be replaced with a Low FODMAP sweetener.
This is why I create different versions of it – this Low FODMAP Coconut Chocolate Mousse with desiccated coconut turned out great!
You can also add to the classic version of Chocolate Chia Mousse:
- suitable amount of raisins (FODMAP Monash app suggests 13g as a portion),
- suitable low FODMAP amount of nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans,
- I love peanut butter and a peanut butter powder. This powder is amazing in smoothies, with a banana and here a tablespoon will transform your chia mouse as well,
- you can add toppings such as berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) or banana. I wouldn’t add banana straightaway, ONLY after setting the chia mouse. It is because the banana will go brown and won’t be as fresh.
This recipe has been approved by a Low FODMAP dietitian, Evelyn Toner. Find interesting articles about Nutrition, IBS and FODMAP on her blog.
