rasperry chocolate mousse #MullerMoment

I have become hooked on Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt.  It has become one of my favorite afternoon snacks.  I love taking a few minutes out of my day to just relax and enjoy a sweet treat.

And for an extra special treat, I thought it would be fun to whip up some Raspberry Chocolate Mousse using Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Raspberry Chocolate Chip Yogurt.

Easy Raspberry Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients:

Directions:

Step 1:  Add chocolate chips and milk to microwave bowl.  Microwave for 20 seconds.  Stir and microwave for another 15 seconds or until melted.

Step 2:  Add yogurt to chocolate and whisk together.  Pour into individual bowls and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Another easy and delicious dessert.

Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurts are available at Walmart and come in three flavors – Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean.  I think I’m going to have to make Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse next.

So, the next time you’re craving ice cream, indulge in Muller’s Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt instead.  With less sugar than other yogurts and only 190-210 calories, you can enjoy them without the guilt.

Couscous and Herb Salad

I’m so exciting to be participating in The Secret Recipe Club this month.

It’s my first month and it was so much fun!  What is The Secret Recipe Club? It’s an awesome way to not only find but share new blogs. Each month, one member is assigned to another member from their group secretly (hence the name). That person selects a recipe (or more) to make, photograph, and then will draft up a blog post. Everyone in the group posts on the same Monday together and gets to see who had their blog and what recipe(s) they chose. It’s such a fun experience and it’s a great way to get new followers, too. There are always new blogs to discover and our club has plenty to offer! If you are interested in joining or want to learn more, visit The Secret Recipe Club’s website.

Zucchini Carrot Bread with Earl Grey Glaze

Zucchini Carrot Bread with Earl Grey Glaze

I LOVE Zucchini Bread!  It is one of my favorite treats especially when it’s cold outside.  Nothing is better than zucchini bread with a nice cup of hot tea.  I have two goals for the new year – cut back on my sugar intake and drink less coffee.  I can do that easily by cutting out my afternoon coffee and switching to tea.  I’m also going to start baking with Truvia instead of sugar.

Today I’m sharing a delicious recipe for Zucchini Carrot Bread with a Streusel Topping and an Earl Grey Glaze.  It’s my first recipe with Truvia and I can honestly say that you can’t taste the difference.

Zucchini Carrot Bread with Truvia and Bigelow Tea

The Zucchini Carrot Bread alone is awesome but the Earl Grey Glaze adds just the right amount of sweetness that makes it a wonderful treat.  Plus, I was able to reduce the number of calories in this quick bread recipe by using Truvia instead of sugar.

Ingredients Needed:

Bread:

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of nutmeg, ginger, cloves (optional)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Truvia
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded carrots

Streusel Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Earl Grey Glaze:

  • 1 Earl Grey tea bag
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk

Directions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray two loaf pans and set aside.

Step 2:  Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and spices in bowl.

Step 3:  In separate bowl, whisk eggs, vanilla, oil, Truvia, and brown sugar.  Add zucchini and carrots and mix until well combined.

Step 4:  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and continue to whisk until there are no lumps.

Step 5:  Pour batter into 2 prepared pans.

Step 6:  Make struesel topping by combing all ingredients in small bowl.  Use a fork to cut the butter in with the other ingredients until it becomes crumbly.

Step 7:  Sprinkle crumbs over the tops of batter in the two pans.

Step 8:  Bake the bread for 50 minutes to an hour.  After 50 minutes poke center of bread with a toothpick at 50 minutes.  If it comes out clean, the bread is done. If it comes out wet, bake longer.

Zucchini Carrot Bread Recipe

Step 9:  Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes in pan.  Then, remove from pan and let cool completely on wire rack.

Step 10:  While bread is cooling, make Earl Grey Glaze.  To make Earl Grey glaze – Bring milk to boil.  Remove from eat and steep tea bag in milk for 10 minutes.  Cream butter with powdered sugar.  Gradually add milk and beat until smooth.

Step 11:  Drizzle glaze over zucchini carrot bread.

Step 12:  Slice and enjoy with a hot cup of Bigelow Tea.

Zucchini Carrot Bread Recipe

It may seem like a lot of steps but it is so worth it!  You can freeze one loaf so you have some for later which you are definitely going to want.  This is definitely the best zucchini bread I’ve ever had and I highly recommend adding the carrots.
