Super easy Chocolate chip strawberry mousseI used fat free sugar free pudding and light whip cream but kept in the real sugar for extra sweetness.  It is a fast and easy dessert that can be made and assembled in less than 15 minutes for a busy week night treat.  Super low in calories too!

The Ghiradelli chocolate chips are a special treat to what looks like a normal mousse. They give a touch of dark chocolate decadence and a nice crispiness to the creamy mousse. (affiliate link.)Strawberry chocolate mousse with extra crunch

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Mousse
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Ingredients
  • 1 (2.1 oz) pkg of Fat Free Sugar Free Jello Pudding mix
  • 2 cups of skim milk
  • 10 strawberries, quartered
  • 4 tbsp of dark chocolate chips. (the Ghiradelli brand taste wonderful!)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Light whip cream
  • Sprig of mint
  • Strawberries and chocolate chips to garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine the pudding mix, vanilla extract and skim milk in a cold bowl. Whip with a whisk for about 2 minutes and place into the refrigerator.
  2. While it is setting, slice the strawberries and mix with the chocolate chips and sugar. Stir several times over about a 5 minute period. The sugar will make a very slight syrup for the strawberries.
  3. Take out the pudding and whisk one more time.
  4. Layer some of the pudding, some of the strawberry/chocolate chip mixture, and whip cream topping. Repeat another group of layers. (see note on layering below.)
  5. Add a dollop of whip cream, a slice of strawberry, a few chocolate chips and a sprig of mint to garnish.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
This dessert needs to be layered just before serving. The sugar makes the strawberries form a slight syrup and if made ahead, it makes the pudding too thin. It only takes a few minutes to layer though. Just do the prepare the strawberry mix and the pudding mix earlier in the day. Then layer at dessert time.

      My husband loved it and he’s not a mousse guy. The chocolate chips added a great crunch to it.
