P2 Chocolate Mousse

Oh my goodness.  I was skeptical about this as I mixed it up but I am amazed at how good it tastes!  This dessert counts as a protein, so for me, it works best on a day I'm busy and don't have time to cook up two proteins for meals.  Or if you're just craving chocolate, it'd be worth planning to have this dessert as a protein.  Yum!  If you like cheesecake, I think you'll like this.  It would also make a fabulous fruit dip - for apples or strawberries! 

Chocolate Mousse

1/2 cup Cottage Cheese (I used low-fat, technically rogue on HCG P2)
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
Splash of Vanilla
Liquid Stevia to taste

Puree all ingredients together and adjust stevia to the sweetness you like.  Start with just a few drops and add one a time until you like it.  Enjoy!

I made this with cottage cheese and cocoa with vanilla creme liquid stevia AND frozen sliced strawberries! Yummy! Thanks for the idea!!

Lianne said...

So glad you liked it! :)

Chrystal said...

Hi. Did either of you have a gain after eating the "rogue" ingredient?

Jewelcat said...

I'd like to know the answer to Chrystal's question too. Did you gain after using the rogue ingredients? Also I have been doing the HCG diet for awhile now and my doctor told me if I was to cheat that I would have to do a apple day in order to get back on track. Did you gain and have to do the apple day when using your rogue ingredients? Just curious...thanks!

Lianne said...

I never post any recipes that cause me trouble. Anything posted here worked fine for *me* - but I always list if there is anything rogue because I want to make sure readers know that and be cautious the first time trying those ingredients. :)

Jewelcat said...

Thank you! I found your site through a friend and I am sooo loving your Blog and the variety of choices. This is my second time to do the diet and have lost 50lbs so far. I love it! However the same old thing does get so tiring after awhile so these fresh ideas are brilliant. God Bless! :)

Lianne said...

That's fantastic, congratulations!! And good luck on this round! :)

Jim Mcclendon said...

Lianne....I just lost 35lbs on phase 2 and your recipes are going to save my life in phase 3 and 4!! I can't thank you enough......I have saved you to my favorites and will be checking in a lot to try all of these!! Thanks again...Jim from Michigan

Lianne said...

Congratulations Jim! That's wonderful. I'm so glad the blog could help :)

cf momma said...

Just made this to get a second meal in today while not eating to eat. Love this! Has anyone tried it frozen? Wonder how it would freeze.

Lianne said...

Sounds delicious, let us know if you try it!

claudia said...

In my p2 hcg 6 days into it...Tried it with strawberries jam and skipped the stevia and vanilla, oh my god, it tastes just like strawberries chocolate mouse!! This was a sunday treat though, i wouldn't do this every day of course. Next time to cut the cal, i will use just strawberries, frozen or fresh ...this time i craved so much a dessert that i just needed it to try this...thank you!!!

kimberloni said...

I made this last night it was amazing and added it to my blog Linking to you. Thank you so much for your recipes. I think you are going to make my P2 protocol so much better!!!

Jenn Graham said...

What is the rogue component of this recipe? The cottage cheese? I thought that was an allowable item in the original protocol? Enjoying your blog. Thanks!

Lianne said...

It's supposed to be fat free, to be fully compatible, but I don't want the other ingredients in fat free cottage cheese so I use low fat. :)

Stephanie Kennedy said...

Thank you for this. I'm on day 6 and really needed a sweet treat and this was perfect. :)
I'll still eat this, even when I'm not on HCG.

redribbons said...

Sour cream or ricotta works too, but only allowed on Phase 3!

Brandy said...

I used low fat cottage cheese and dark chocolate stevia with the wondercocoa (hmm, I don't HAVE vanilla in my cupboard)
Used immersion blender, and am now enjoying a yummy dip/snack with strawberries.
Starting my 2nd week, and already lost 10 pounds! Love this, thanks so much!

Lianne said...

Love it! Way to go!

nicole said...

I don't know WHAT I'm doing wrong. But I cannot get the flavors to work. It's just not getting a sweet taste. I'm afraid if I add too much stevia it will become really bitter.

Lianne said...

Bummer! It's tricky to sweeten bitter cocoa powder with just liquid stevia. What kind of stevia do you use? I honestly have only found one brand I really, really like and that is NuNaturals liquid version. None of the powdered versions taste good to me at all.

How long have you been off of sugar? I don't like the taste of this if I've had sugar (real sweetness) relatively recently, but when I've been off for a while, even just plain strawberries taste sweet and this becomes something that really tastes good.

Just brainstorming what might be going on with it for you. It is a bummer to be excited about a dessert type dish and then not like it, I'm sorry :(

nicole said...

I tried both plain, liquid Sweetleaf (Stevia) and I also tried it using Vanilla Creme Sweet Leaf.

I've only been doing HCG's VLCD (P2) for about 10 days but I wasn't a big sugar person before hand and I used Splenda in my coffee and baking.

I used FF Cottage Cheese because my hubby bought the wrong kind so I'm wondering if that, possibly, had something to do with it?

nicole said...

Lianne,
Are you still doing this diet? If so, you should join this FB group. It's an HCG Diet Support group. Most of the members follow the original protocol but it's a WONDERFUL group. I definitely have been able to get through this without them. I just love it so I thought I'd let you know about it in case you're interested :) https://www.facebook.com/groups/LittleChoicesMatter/

Lianne said...

It could be the FF cottage cheese, or even just the brand. I have found that I hate daisy brand cottage cheese, but I like the others I've tried.

Authentic One said...

I too only found one brand of stevia I like with no bitter after taste and that is KAL liquid stevia. I use it even when I am not on protocol AT ALL! Sweetleaf has a bitter after taste and about a dozen bottles sit in my cabinets of every flavor but I dont use them. I will use Truvia when I want a powder for baking (stevia and sugar alcohol blend-neither a sugar nor alcohol). Not all fat free products are the same! Im more likely to try this on P3. My progress is just too good right now on P2 to have a push back.

Sam Athelete said...

Losing weight shouldn't be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to achieve weight loss are often prone to take more risks. The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

Twarnz Zammit said...

Just tried this recipe and I think I added a tad too much cocoa powder or not enuff stevia BUT more practice and I'll nail it I'm sure! Still tasted pretty yummo! I love this blog! Found soooo many things I am excited about trying! I start my official ph2 in just one more day! Let the journey to a healthier & happier me begin!

carolinaskies said...

this was soooooo good, thanks

Cenia Kline said...

On the hcg diet I am on we aren't allowed dairy until Phase 3... But may try this on P3 :)

The Jones's said...

Just stumbled into your blog by chance and I thank my lucky stars!!! Excellent variety of dishes and yet so simple!!! thankk you very much and God bless you!

JamesRanch said...

Love...love your blog....just starting HCG....very good ideas!

Matern Mayhem said...

On day 7 of my first round of HCG and I'm down 7.6 lbs. This blog has been a GODSEND! I'm so glad I found it!!

Mischa Brewer said...

I made something similar. I used plain Greek yogurt. I read the labels and got the one with the least amount of sugar. I would usually just eat a 1/4 c Greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp stevia, and 1 tsp cocoa powder. I like more of a dark chocolate, so a full tsp might be too much for most. It is what helped me get through Phase II.
I also made chicken taco wraps. Use Braggs liquid amino, garlic, ginger, cumin, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste and 3.5 oz of ground chicken or turkey. After cooked put on iceberg lettuce leaves and a little bit of salsa and enjoy! Delicious!

Kathleen LaSelle said...

I couldn't have made it through 7 weeks on P2 without this cheater recipe. You're a goddess in my book, Lianne!

Deb said...

I cant get this to blend it my blender..the cottage cheese stays under the blades..any tips..?? Which vitamix do you have and do you blend this in that..??

Lianne said...

Oh that is tough. I wonder if you made a double recipe if the higher volume would allow it to mix?

I have made it in the Vitamix and also with a stick blender. This is the stick blender I have - I LOVE it, use it ALL the time: http://amzn.to/2u3Cdml

I got a new Vitamix this year - this is the one I got: http://amzn.to/2t9JbJt

I still have my old one, it's 10 years old and definitely still works. I am pretty hard on them since I blend frozen fruit almost every day so I wanted a new one for that. But it works fine for less difficult blending. This is my 10-year-old Vitamix: http://amzn.to/2t9xG4N
