Do you love dessert? I do, and although I only eat dessert on the weekends, it’s always challenging to find a recipe that has luscious mouthfeel but isn’t going to instantly pile on the pounds. Easy Low Fat Mango Chia Mousse is only 100 calories per portion, it’s sweet from the natural sweetness of the mango and creamy from 0% Greek Yogurt, chia seeds ensure that it holds together in a mousse-like texture. The bonus is that it really is simple to make using your blender.
How to make Easy Low Fat Mango Chia Mousse
Prepare the mango by cutting off the flesh either side of the central stone and chop roughly and juice the lime.
Put the mango, lime juice and honey into the jug of your blender. I used the Optimum Nutri Force Extractor which looks very much like other personal blenders but with 1000w of power at your fingertips you can whizz up your breakfast smoothie in 50 seconds. Not only that, the Optimum Compact Nutri Force Extractor comes with both a 1 litre and a 450 ml cup. There are two stay fresh travel lids, a flip-top lid and a removable cup handle too, perfect for smoothies on the go.

Pulse the mango and then run the blender until the puree is smooth.
Pass the puree through a sieve to ensure that there are no fibres left in the puree.
Place the Greek yogurt into a bowl and add the mango puree and grated ginger, and mix thoroughly then add the chia seeds and stir them through.
Pour the Easy Low Fat Mango Chia Mousse mixture into six small bowls or glass pots, cover and put in the fridge and leave for at least two hours but preferably overnight.
