We all have those moments when nothing sounds better than curling up next to a big bowl of chocolate-something, whether than means a bar, ice cream, pudding or milkshake. Besides being one of the tastiest treats, cacao is jam-packed with antioxidants. It’s also one of the best sources of plant-based magnesium, which is a vital nutrient that may help improve sleep and relieve stress in users. That’s exactly why we had to dream up this Easy Chocolate Mousse recipe.

So, let’s get to the details: Our latest creation is a rich dessert that boasts only five ingredients. Yep, you read that right. It might feel like you’re solely enjoying a creamy, easy chocolate mousse recipe, but two scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides ensure you’re reaping major health and beauty benefits. Our Collagen Peptides help to support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints.

The avocado and coconut in this recipe contain healthy fats, which helps to keep tasters full and energized with every bite. Talk about food with benefits.
