All-Bran Greek Yogurt Mocha Mousse & GIVEAWAY


I love a good giveaway post, and today I'm sharing the last of my three All-Bran recipes and giving away a fantastic All-Bran prize pack. Not only do you have a chance to win boxes of All-Bran cereal to start your day off right, but you could also get your hands on some gorgeous and useful kitchen tools (see picture below).

This blog campaign was all about giving some classic recipes a nutritional fibre boost. I started things off with a Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball, then moved on to a main course with Turkey Corn Tacos, and now I'm ready to share what might be my favourite of the three recipes - this no-cook Greek Yogurt Mocha Mousse. It's delicious, sinfully smooth, and so easy to make it can put together in 10 minutes or less. Plus, it's actually pretty healthy!

For the first time, I'm also sharing a video of me in my very own kitchen making something. For a gal who used to anchor the morning news on television, I just have never really gotten into video with my blog. Anyhow, there you have it - me on camera making mocha mousse. I'll go hide under a rock somewhere while you watch it.

Scroll down to get this tasty and easy recipe, and enter to WIN this incredible All-Bran prize pack!
 
 
 

All-Bran Greek Yogurt Mocha Mousse
Makes four 1 cup (250 mL) servings

1/4 cup (60 mL) butter
3 tbsp (50 mL) cocoa powder, divided
1 1/4 cups (300 mL) All-Bran Buds cereal
1/4 cup (60 mL) strong brewed coffee
1 3/4 cups (425 mL) plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp (30 mL) honey
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
6 squares from a dark chocolate bar
4 mint leaves as garnish (optional)

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in 2 tbsp (30 mL) of cocoa powder until dissolved. Stir in the All-Bran Buds. Spoon into four 1 cup (250 mL) mason jars or dessert bowls and set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the coffee and the remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) of cocoa powder until dissolved. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, coffee/cocoa mixture, honey and vanilla until well combined. Spoon over crunchy All-Bran base. Chill in the refrigerator until set (at least 1 hour).

Roughly chop the squares of chocolate. Sprinkle evenly over the mousse. Garnish with mint leaves if desired.

CONTEST CLOSED: The randomly-selected winner is Asiya Baig, who also happens to be a food blogger! Find her over at Chocolate & Chillies.

  20. Although not a dessert, my favourite thing to eat when I am craving something sweet but don't want to eat unhealthy, is to eat a couple of Medjool Dates.

  21. I LOVE All Bran Buds. I secretly add them to our family chocolate chip cookie recipe all-the-time. They give this great crunch (plus added fibre) and allow me to cut back on the chocolate chips. They are of course baked with canola oil to keep those saturated fats in check too!
