Chocolate Parfait

These parfaits are great when you want to entertain, yet still want to stick to your healthy way of life. Because of the sugar in the graham crackers and whipped topping, however, it’s best not to make this an everyday treat. The layered combination of mousse, whipped topping, and grapham cracker definitely makes this worth a splurge.

You’ll Need:
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon very cold fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua or other coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1 envelope (1.5 ounces) sugar – free low-fat chocolate mousse mix
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 chocolate graham crackers, crunshed into fine crumbs
  • 1 cup thawed fat-free frozen whipped topping
In a large bowl, combine the milk, Kahlua, mousse mix, and cocoa. With an electric mixer fitted with beaters, whip on low speed until blended. Slowly increase the mixer speed to high, whipping until it’s fluffy. In each of 4 large dessert dishes, layer 1/4 cup of the mousse, 2 teaspoons of crumbs, and 2 tablespoons of topping. Repeat layers once more, using the remaining ingrediants. Refridgerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
