Easy Low Carb Keto Chocolate Mousse

Easy Low Carb Keto Chocolate Mousse

I've got the most delicious dessert to share.

It's based on a chocolate mousse recipe that I found on Tasteaholics.  They are really good at simplifying recipes down to just a handful of ingredients and only a few steps.  They've got this great series of cookbooks called In Five, where each recipe has 5 ingredients, 5 steps and 5 or less net carbs.  I love the simplicity of it.

 Easy Low Carb Keto Chocolate Mousse Recipe

And so this sugar-free mousse recipe is a very concentrated and chocolatey dessert with only 5g net carbs per serving. 

I updated my original recipe in May of 2018 to lighten up the consistency a little bit.  (Some people found the recipe "too fudgey" and I couldn't disagree.)  But if you came here for the original recipe, it's at the very bottom of the page.         

Ok, now it's time for me to show myself out.
