Keto Chocolate Mousse – Low Carb

What else could be more divine than cream with chocolate? 5 ingredients chocolate mousse that will put a smile on every faces!

There are those weeks when we barely have time to brush our teeth let alone baking something that makes the stress bearable. (Exercise won’t count here as it’s not edible.) For those hard times now we have something in our sleeves. This low carb dessert will fill the gaping hole that the busy workweek made in our baking schedule. To be honest it’s not really a baking than whipping but at the end it doesn’t really matter anyway. It’s of course a sugar free recipe that is sweetened with whatever we feel comfortable with. However this is as always, optional.

Ingredients

  • 8.8 oz /200g Dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon Cocoa powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • Sweetener to taste (optional as most dark chocolates are already sweetened)
  • ⅞ cup / 200ml Heavy whipping cream

How to make Chocolate mousse

  1. Break the chocolate into pieces and place it in a small saucepan over another pan of gently simmering water. Stir until chocolate is melted then let it cool off.Melted-chocolate-gp-SunCakeMom
  2. Place eggs and the optional sweetener of choice in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until it’s light yellow color and doubled in volume. It will take about 5 minutes.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-2-SunCakeMom
  3. Eventually add cocoa powder to the mixture.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-3-SunCakeMom
  4. Fold in cooled chocolate carefully until combined.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-5-SunCakeMom
  5. In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened about 2-3 minutes.Beat-cream-gp-SunCakeMom
  6. Fold the thick whipped cream into the eggs mixture carefully.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-6-SunCakeMom
  7. We are after a uniform creamy texture and chocolaty color.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-7-SunCakeMom
  8. Spoon mixture into serving glasses and put them in the fridge to chill before serving if that’s possible.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-8-SunCakeMom
  9. Anyway, if we are lucky enough and our chocolate mousse survives for an hour in the fridge, decorate them with some extra whipped cream and chocolate topping before serving.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-9-SunCakeMom
