I’ve got the most delicious dessert recipe to share.
It’s a chocolate mousse recipe that is going to knock your socks off.
The recipe is based on a chocolate mousse that I found on Tasteaholics. They are really great at simplifying recipes down to just a handful of ingredients and only a few steps. And they’ve got a 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.
These bowls of chocolate mousse might not look like much, but don’t let your eyes fool you.
This sugar-free mousse is a very chocolatey and decadent dessert. It’s light and airy and has only 5g net carbs per serving. Not too shabby for a bowl of low carb chocolate mousse.
Ok, now it’s time for me to show myself out.
