This delicious Chocolate Protein Mousse is healthy, easy to make and tastes like a decadent treat!
It’s a satisfying way to boost your protein intake even while enjoying dessert! Protein helps stabilize your blood sugar, makes you feel more full and satisfied and has the added benefit of supporting muscle tissue.
Increasing your protein intake is important as we age because we absorb less amino acids from the foods we eat. Those aminos are crucial for our immune health, brain function, hormone and enzyme function AND muscle growth. Eating more protein helps ensure you have the building blocks needed to repair and rebuild muscle after your workouts.
I’ve included my I Chocolate Protein powder, which is a 100% ORGANIC, high protein (21 grams per serving), nutrient-dense whole food protein powder that combines 4 plant-based protein sources into a delicious chocolate protein powder to support your active lifestyle!
