I have to admit it, I am addicted to chocolate. But this time, I have made a delicious chocolate mousse with a higher protein content.
You will have several options when it comes to choosing the chocolate for this recipe. It will be up to you, either if you like it more or less sweet and more or less protein. I used the Sugar-free Dark Chocolate bar by HSNfoods, which has a 72% of pure cocoa. Although you can use the Hyperprotein Dark Chocolate Tablet sweetened with stevia. But the cocoa drops to a 52%.
