This low calorie high protein peanut butter mousse tastes amazing, and if your dad is a peanut butter fanatic like mine, then I promise he’ll love this recipe too! This year I’m treating dad to the recipe below and to a box of his favorite Peanut Butter Cookies from The Protein Cookie Company. I’m thinking this peanut butter mousse would make a nice layer between two cookies. What do you think?
- 4 ounces of fat-free cream cheese
- ½ cup Stevia
- 1 ounce of vanilla protein powder
- ½ cup natural peanut butter
- ½ cup fat-free milk
- 8 ounces of fat-free Cool Whip
To get started you’ll need a big mixing bowl. First I mix together the 4 ounces of fat-free cream cheese, ½ cup Stevia and the vanilla protein powder.
Next, I mix in the peanut butter and the milk until it is smooth. I use a hand held mixer; this makes it easier. Once those ingredients are mixed I grab a big metal spoon and gently fold in the Cool Whip.
Finally, I scoop the fluffy mixture into four small glass bowls and refrigerate for at least two hours. I know you will be tempted to dive into it before two hours have past, but it tastes awesome cold.

Beastly Recipe Notes
- You can try different flavors of protein powder, chocolate protein powder works well. But experiment, chocolate peanut butter might be wonderful. You could also use almond butter rather than peanut butter.
- If dad is looking to get SHREDDED, then consider sticking with the fat-free options.
- Depending on your nutritional needs, you can replace the fat-free milk with whole milk and replace the fat-free cream cheese with the real cream cheese. You get the idea.
- You could also replace the fat-free milk with Almond milk or Rice milk. No matter how you choose to make it; I have a feeling it will be one of your dad’s favorites too!
