It’s football season which means it is time for Chocolate Greek Yogurt Mousse!  We enjoy football and chocolate so this is a great blend of both.  Chocolate Greek Yogurt Mousse is a diabetes friendly dessert that won’t disappoint! It is also a great gluten-free option for you to serve.  For this recipe, you will need greek yogurt, dark chocolate chips, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, Bailey’s Irish cream, Oreo cookies and blueberries.  You can decorate the top of the mouse with fresh fruit and/or something to celebrate the holiday or sporting event where you are serving this dish. As you can see here, we used the mousse as a dessert during the Super bowl.

You can substitute stevia for the sugar if you need to be careful with your carbohydrate intake.  This recipe can also work with silken tofu instead of greek yogurt.
