Healthy Chocolate Mousse with Chia Seeds, Almond Milk & Banana

A chocolate mousse that is also healthy – can it get even better? I love chia seeds, and I use them in so many dishes, but my favorite way to use them is in a mousse like this. I eat this chocolate mousse for breakfast, but you could easily eat it as a dessert as well. It takes some time to make it, since you have to mix the seeds with the almond milk the night before,  but it’s worth the effort. Even my husband loves it, and believe it or not, he asked, if we could have the chocolate mousse instead of scrambled eggs last weekend!
