Key Lime Yogurt Mousse with Toasted Oat & Almond Crumble

Recently, I have been really digging the light and refreshing desserts. Not sure if it’s the hot and humid weather that we’re experiencing over here 24/7, or just the fact that I love all things fruity… but I’ve been all about the fresh treats these days. Can’t stop won’t sop.

This key lime “mousse” is perfectly tart and is made with Greek yogurt + light cool whip for a lower fat and calorie dessert that is deliciously decadent! Honestly, you could eat this for breakfast. The oat & almond topping is basically granola and is a wonderfully crunchy addition to the creamy mousse.

And um can we just talk about how pretty mousse is? It was so simple and quick and came out looking like this! Basically just go make this now.

 Key Lime Yogurt Mousse with Toasted Oat & Almond Crumble 
 Serves 4 

2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I used Fage 2%)
1 cup Light Cool Whip
1/4 cup Key Lime juice
6 packets Truvia or other sweetener
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, almonds, honey, butter, and vanilla. 
2. Bake oat and almond mixture in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
3. In a large bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, Cool Whip, Truvia, and Key Lime juice. 
4. With a stand-up or hand held mixer, whip the mousse on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until a mousse-like texture is reached. 

5. Divide mousse among 4 cups and top with oat & almond mixture. Serve immediately or refrigerate mousse for 2-3 days in an airtight container.

This mousse kind of makes me want to be on vacay right now. So refreshing and summery. Soon enough. 🙂

 Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
