Anyone that knows me knows I am NOT a chocolate lover, in fact I hardly ever eat it. But it’s Valentine’s Day, and I found this healthy and yummy recipe from my friends at CleanEating that will satisfy even the most avid chocolate lover! Hope you have a wonderful day with loved ones!
Chocolate Yogurt Mousse with Vanilla Cherry Compote
2/3 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
1 1/4-oz dark chocolate with cherries, finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh or dried unsweetened seeded cherries
2 tsp raw honey
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 sprigs mint
1. Line a sieve with two sheets of paper towel. Place over a bowl and pour in yogurt. Place in refrigerator to drain for 30 minutes. Discard excess liquid from bowl. Transfer drained yogurt to a bowl and whip vigorously with a whisk.
2. Place chocolate in a clean, dry heat-proof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a simmer. Place bowl with chocolate over simmering water and melt, stirring occasionally. Whisk chocolate into yogurt and vigorously whip until smooth. Pour into two serving dishes. Refrigerate until needed.
3. In a small saucepan, bring cherries, honey, vanilla and 1/4 cup water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cherries have softened, about 5 minutes. To serve, top yogurt mixture with cherry topping and mint. Serve mousse chilled and cherry topping lightly warmed or at room temperature.
