Healthy chocolate protein mousse


chocolate protein mousse I am changing my workout routine, lifting heavier and more often than before. So I now need more protein than I used to! SO here is one of my latest favorites. This chocolate protein mousse is so quick to make that you have no excuse. It is propped with almost 30 g protein, and is the perfect morning, mid-day or evening snack. You can experiment with different protein powder flavors to get variety. But as you know, I am all about chocolate..

Chocolate protein mousse

This mousse takes 2 minutes to make, and fills you up for many hours.


100 g Low fat quark (for all my scandinavian readers: mager kesam)

2 tablespoons water

20 g Chocolate protein powder (I used a low carb one)

2 teaspoons Psyllium Husk (fiber supplement)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Mix the low fat quark with the water. Add the chocolate protein powder and the cinnamon. Mix it up, and add the Psyllium husk in the end. Mix until smooth. See pictured below.

2. Put the chocolate protein mousse in a wine glass or a ice- cream glass, and add oranges or apples as desired.

  1. What type of protein powder do you use? I’m constantly on a search for a healthier low carb protein powder. Also cheers on your blog! I love all these great healthy desserts! I’ve been trying to get my boyfriend to understand that eating healthy can be super delicious and your blogs might be the key!

      Hi Celina! Thanks for the comment, and sorry for the late reply. I am happy you like the blog! I use several types of protein powder. It depends what I am using it for. But the ones I use always are all natural and clean, gluten free, lactose free. I am also constantly on the search for the best one. If you are looking for a clean, all natural proteinsupplement I would recommend you to try About Time protein or All Pro Science protein, as theirs is not artificially flavoured or sweetened, and their whey is from grass-fed, healthy cows. They both also have vegan options, and low carb. I plan to do a overview of the protein powders I prefer, so watch out;) Have a super day! Maria

  2. Love your recipes, what is the equivalent to Quark in Australia do you know?

    1. thatcakechick Author says:

      Thanks, Jess! In Australia you can find quark here or here. However as a substitute you can use greek yoghurt, creamed cottage cheese or even Ricotta. I have not done this myself, but I am positive that it would turn out good. For a high protein, low- fat alternative ceramed cottage cheese would be the best substitute. If you can’t find creamed cottage cheese, you can just blend it in your blender until smooth. Here is an overview of the different milk products, and how to use them. Good luck, and let me know how it turns out! Maria:)

  3. Hello!

    Finally found the recipe I have been searching for!
    Can I leave off the Fibre supplement and Cinamon – will it still get a mousse texture?

    Thanks, Sarah

      Hi Sarah! That’s great, happy to hear that! Yes, you can skip those ingredients. I would suggest to add a bit more protein powder, so it won’t be too runny (the fibersupplement makes it thicker). You can also try to add just 1 tablespoon water first, and then 1 tablespoon more to desired consistence. Good luck! Let me know how it turns our:)
