greek yogurt 52 ways #21: mini chocolate mousse pie

If you're following along, I will be sharing summer break 2015 week #6 tomorrow. :)

I recently discovered Yoplait's Greek Yogurt Whips. Each cup is exactly as advertised- Greek yogurt that has been whipped so it has a mousse-like consistency. There are multiple flavors (see here), but my favorites are strawberry cheesecake, vanilla cupcake, key lime pie, and coconut macaroon (some are not on the website). I also like Yoplait's Yogurt Whips, which are made with regular yogurt. See here. A flavor that the regular yogurt has that the Greek yogurt varieties don't is chocolate mousse. To whom it may concern, I think it's time to add chocolate mousse to the Greek Yogurt Whips. Until then...

We'll make our own Greek yogurt chocolate mousse pie. For this dessert, gently fold one chocolate mousse yogurt with 1/2 a container of Greek Yogurt Whips- coconut macaroon (vanilla cupcake would work, too). Spoon the mousse into an already prepared mini graham cracker crust. Garnish with whipped cream and cocoa powder.

This dessert is especially nostalgic for me. When Evie was born more than 9 years ago, she cried all night that first night at the hospital. It was heart breaking and exhausting. That morning after she had finally fallen asleep and I had taken a nap, the hospital brought me a slice of chocolate mousse pie. It tasted like nothing I'd ever had... kind of like my-baby-just-cried-all-night-I'm-gonna-cry-into-this-delicious-chocolate-mousse-pie. Have you ever tried that before?? ;)
