Healthy Chocolate Yoghurt Mousse – Thermomix & regular recipes

Healthy Chocolate Yoghurt Mousse


Healthy Chocolate Yoghurt Mousse, yes it’s healthy and it’s delicious & really easy to make. This is a great way to have a “treat” that’s actually good for you.  We don’t often have desserts with mid week meals, do you?  Usually, if the girls want something after dinner (& they always do as a) they never their eat dinner & b) it’s avoiding going to bed) they have a yoghurt or an apple and that’s about all the effort that is required, but every now and then, when I have the time and inclination, (& they have actually eaten all of their meal), I’ll try something new.

I hated yoghurt growing up, love it now & have it most days but back then, no way, but I did like a Chocolate “Yogo”, remember them?? I think maybe it was a Western Australian delicacy (we lived in Perth for 9 years when I was young) anyway this Healthy Chocolate Yoghurt Mousse is my updated version of the good old Chocolate Yogo.

You don’t need much in each serving because it’s quite rich and when loaded up with berries and nuts it’s filling too. It’s gluten free, grain free, just about refined sugar free (depends on what chocolate you use) & takes all of 10 minutes to make plus 2 hours chilling time to make it “mousse” like.  It would make a great after school snack too.

Healthy Chocolate Yoghurt Mousse Thermomix


  • 3/4 C (185 ml) 155g milk

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 C 560 g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 C mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 C almonds


  1. Put milk & chocolate in the TM and melt the chocolate 60 degrees / Speed 3 / 3 minutes
  2. Add the maple syrup (or rice malt syrup) & vanilla extract and combine Speed 4 / 3 seconds
  3. Add the yoghurt and gently combine Reverse / Speed 3 / 7 seconds
  4. Spoon into 4 serving glasses and put in the fridge for 2 hours until set
  5. When ready to eat arrange the berries and nuts on the top and serve
  6. Enjoy!

For those wanting to make it the regular way it’s all the same ingredients but rather than melt the chocolate etc in the Thermomix you…

Put milk & chocolate pieces in a saucepan over a medium/ low heat stirring occasionally until the chocolate is melted and it’s all combined. Remove from heat.

Add the syrup and vanilla extract and stir through & then add the yoghurt and fold through until it’s well combined.

Transfer into 4 serving glasses and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

Top with berries and almonds and enjoy!

 Do you remember Yogo’s? Do you try to go healthy on desserts or think “hey, it’s dessert so I’m going all out”!?

    Oh I love yogo (and yoghurt) and make something similar in the thermie, although mine’s not quite as healthy as yours! I love the idea of adding the nuts and berries. So much pretty and delicious!
