My Seriously Yummy Concoction!!

The Magic Bullet has yet to fail me!!! I LOVE it! I whipped up this ultra healthy mousse in seconds, and the mint came straight from the garden. Yay! Here's how I made it.

Danielle's Heavenly Mousse

1 small container of low fat vanilla yogurt (I prefer Yoplait Light)
2 heaping tablespoons of Knudson Free cottage cheese
1 tablespoon of Amaretto flavored Agave Nectar
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
2-3 peeled and pitted organic figs (optional)
In Magic Bullet container combine above ingredients. Attach flat whipping blade and mix until mousse has formed (about 45 seconds). That's it. If you are using figs (which will create a thicker mouse after it sets in the fridge and will require longer blending time), be sure that they are room temperature before blending. Blend with chopping blade, remove and attach flat whipping blade until smooth. Allow to set in fridge at least 30 minutes before serving. This thing is quick and incredibly yummy! Here is the pic of the ingredients I used. Click on the pic to enlarge. I don't necessarily like a stiff mouse, so I did not add the figs. Because I use the thick and creamy yogurt, I get the consistency I'm looking for. ENJOY! I did.
