New Recipe: Strawberry Hazelnut Mousse

I made a delicious mousse today.

It’s technically chia seeding pudding, but I title things how I see fit. And the shoe fits.

Okay, dietitian confession here. I’ve always been a little scared of chia seed pudding. Maybe it’s because I was a Swiss Miss pudding gal. The type that has one texture; ultra smooth but probably not actually sourced from the Swiss cows on the label. I’m willing to believe the lie to save my childhood, though.

Anyways, last year I finally made chia seed pudding and even though it included my favorite ingredients (pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon), I could take it or leave it.

I left it.

When Forager Project proposed a recipe content, those chia seeds were looming at me from the top shelf and I knew it was time to take on the challenge. And, voila! I don’t give myself enough credit #humblebrag because this recipe took one try and it’s freaking delicious. By that, I mean that:

  1. my husband enjoyed it and,
  2. I finished the jar off in one day.

Bonus! This recipe has 9.8g of fiber per serving, ~ 40% of your daily fiber need. Plus, 24g of heart-healthy plant-based satiating fat. This is an incredible meal option for long-lasting energy and focus.

Strawberry Hazelnut Mousse

Fat & fiber-rich, ultra-creamy & balanced for breakfast, snack or 4th meal.

  • 1 <strong>carton of Forager Strawberry cashew yogurt </strong>
  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
  • 3 TB Hazelnut Butter
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 sliced strawberries
  1. Add chia seeds to yogurt and stir briskly to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 5 hours (until it's achieved thicker gel-like consistency.

    Use an immersion blender to smooth out the yogurt & chia combo. 

    In a small bowl combine the ground cinnamon, and hazelnut butter. 

    Once the pudding is set, place ½ the yogurt in a glass mason jar, add a dollop of the butter mixture, and top with 1 sliced strawberry to cover the surface. Repeat 3x or until the ingredients run out.

    Get creative with your topping – consider toasted chopped hazelnuts and dark chocolate chips

    Voila! Always serve chilled.

The ingredients for this recipe were provided by Forager Project. There’s a recipe contest based on creativity and taste and I’m obviously participating. What dietitian isn’t ultra-competitive, type A and always down for a challenge? Wish me luck!
