Peanut Butter Cup Mousse

in All Posts


This recipe is a HUGE hit in my house. I kept meaning to share but forgot over and over – probably because I’m too busy licking a spoon.


It turns out that, if you mix peanut butter and Greek yogurt, this wonderfully fluffy “mousse” is created! Add in a little cocoa powder, a splash of cinnamon, and (optional) some honey and… TADA!  It’s totally delicious and an excellent source of protein and healthy fats.  This is one food that I can always count of the kids to eat… Unless I eat it all first.  Seriously.  This stuff goes QUICKLY in my house!

  • 1/3 cup full fat plain Greek Yogurt

    I tried this before, and it was a little too tart for me… I never thought to add honey! Can’t wait to give it another go!

    I rely on Greek yogurt as a daily protein source (for a vegetarian diet), and while peanut butter + Greek yogurt has been my go-to apple dip for years, I’d never considered its dessert potential. Great idea.

    Did you get it this whipped with just a utensil? Looks legit!

      Yes just a spoon!

    I’m curious what brand/type of PB you used? That seems key to the consistency. I assume it’s a natural peanut butter?

    • Caitlin October 30, 2015, 11:17 am

      I think that was organic PB from Costco?? Yes, natural. I have used a few different types of natural PB, sun butter etc and it always come out whippy.

    Yum! This is a great idea. I often find these kinds of recipes too sweet so I like that the honey is optional 🙂 Pinning!

    That looks good! Quick and easy = my kind of recipe!

    Ahhh, a normal mousse recipe! I was half-expecting to have tofu in this recipe. This one, I would actually try I think!

    do you mix by hand or with a mixer? Might try with almond butter b/c we have a peanut allergy in the house.

    • Caitlin October 30, 2015, 11:17 am

      By hand!

  • Donna October 29, 2015, 7:53 pm

    This is genius!

  • Megan October 29, 2015, 7:59 pm

    I agree this is delicious!

    You do know that honey can be dangerous for babies under 1 (or maybe 2?)? Because of a botulism risk. I hope you omit the honey when Claire gets it!

      I forgot all about that! Thanks for the reminder. She doesn’t usually have added sugars anyway.

    How do you make it so fluffy?

    • Kiara November 4, 2015, 9:21 am

      It just IS that fluffy, oddly.

    Looks good, but Sex With Your Pants On!

    It’s hard doing it the Whole 30 with kids, I know, but we find that they actually default to better foods if we just stick to it. And that way I totally don’t feel like a bad mom if I get them ice cream or other sweets, because they don’t crave something sweet daily. Good luck!

  • Casey October 30, 2015, 12:03 pm

    Hmmmm now this sounds VERY interesting. I would like to give this a shot and see how it goes. It definitely looks fluffy like mousse.

  • Sarah @ irunieatilive November 1, 2015, 2:57 pm

    Wow, this looks really great!! I love full fat Greek yogurt and include it pretty much on a daily basis as part of my breakfast. Never even considered turning it into a mousse! Definitely trying this. I may even turn it into a “dessert for breakfast” concept. Because chocolate for breakfast is always a good idea. 😉 Thanks for sharing this!

    Oh my goodness. This is amazing!!! I am pregnant and craving peanut butter and chocolate… This is a healthy way to satisfy that craving. Thanks for the recipe!
