Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse

This has become one of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts or snacks! It’s honestly like dessert that takes 60 seconds to whip up. What’s better than that?

Enjoy by itself, with fruit, granola, or sweet pita chips. Also ahhhmazing with whipped cream!

Fueling notes:

  • Greek yogurt provides 1/3 of your daily calcium needs and 20+ grams of protein
  • Cocoa powder polyphenolic compounds called flavonoids which act as antioxidants and fight inflammation. It is also rich in magnesium, copper, and iron
  • Pre-climbing, pair with as much carbs as you’re hungry for at least 1-2 hours before your session
  • Post-climbing, pair each serving with 60-80 grams of carbs for that ideal 3-4:1 ratio.

The Stuff

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa powder (or more if you want!)
  • Sugar (or another sweetener) to taste (I do ~2 tbsp)

The Steps

  1. Mix everything together carefully (the cocoa powder has a mind of it’s own and likes to get everywhere).

Did you make it? I’d love to see how it turned out! Tag @climbingdietitian on instagram.
