Here is the second recipe from my chocolate milk series!  My chocolate protein mousse is going to ROCK your world, I promise.  I am a HUGE mousse fan, but of course want to make the healthiest version for me and my family.  After several tries, I think I’ve perfected this protein mousse for you to enjoy.  What makes it especially delicious is the use of fairlife ultra-filtered milk.  With half the sugar and 13 grams of protein, compared to regular milk which has only 8 grams, it also amps this recipe into something delicious and extra nutritious.

As you can see, I of course used fairlife ultra-filtered milk again.  As I’ve stated before, this is the ONLY milk we drink in the Hughes’ household.  It has 50% less sugars than regular milk, and 13 grams of protein!  And you know how I love my protein.  What I really appreciate about this brand is their dedication to natural products for families.  I love that this milk is ultra-filtered to maintain deliciousness while also providing the cleanest products.
