Chocolate Trifle Recipe

A luscious dessert for the everydays that will shine a smile on every face. Irresistible and easy chocolate trifle recipe with no carbs.

However, trifles can be made quite elaborately, that is not why we love trifles at all. In fact, trifles as its name implies are pretty trifling to make.

A basic trifle doesn’t require much but a bit of sponge cake, custard and whipped cream. Traditionally, it should also contain a bit of fortified wine but since kids are not allowed a pint of beer in the morning, alcohols in desserts are also generally frowned upon in families with kids.

Not like stuffing kids with sugar should be any different than nourishing them with lager, but we aren’t that point of social recognition yet so desserts or even meals full of sugar are still fine.

Probably a bit of sugar here and there wouldn’t be such an immense problem but partly because the addictive nature of refined sugar and the irresponsible usage of it by almost everyone who is making food its empty calories are everywhere.

So, as its with every addiction after admitting our reliance on the substance and decided to leave it out of our life, we must find something that fills the space that is torn out from us. The problem with quitting sugar though is that we have nowhere to hide.

When quitting other abusive substances like tobacco, people tend to find refugee in the earthy pleasures of eating, putting on not small amount of weight during the process.

The real cruelty in this process is that if we use aids like nicotine gum in this process as our body keeps stashing the excess energy, it also stuffs the nicotine in there. Once we decide to stop eating 10 times a day and start slimming down, the nicotine stored in our fat gets released into the bloodstream causing nicotine craving again.

Luckily, with sugar we don’t have this roller-coaster and once we quit there is no more physical craving for the stuff, only psychological. When we quit other abusive substances, we can choose not to do it anymore easily but unfortunately, we still must eat after quitting sugar.

Even more excruciating that we must eat the same food that we used to have but without sugar now. That’s just plain torture and very few of us can bear that.  Our childhood favorites without the abundant amount of sugar taste like brand new washing up sponge and shoelace.

It takes a little time for our taste buds to adjust to the new reality, given that we don’t kill them with some new miraculous artificial sweetener. After we adjust to the world of real flavors, we can create and enjoy life as it is.

Like this chocolate trifle that will provide something that has never been before. It’s so decadent that no one will ever notice that it’s healthy. Given of course that an absurd amount of whipped cream could be counted as healthy, but cream is full of minerals and vitamins, right?

The base of this chocolate trifle is our favorite spongy keto chocolate cake made of almonds while to chocolate layer is made of luscious chocolate mousse. The best thing about it is that the cake base can be frozen in slices and used up whenever the fancy took us to whip the cream up.
