Easy Chocolate Mousse {Keto / Low Carb}

I don’t think I could survive without a little chocolate in my life, and this Keto friendly Easy Chocolate Mousse recipe is a lifesaver for sure. Whether you are trying to battle a craving or needing extra fat in your day – this is a must try recipe.

Keto Easy Chocolate Mousse

One of my favorite desserts my grandmother used to make reminds me of this Keto/Low Carb easy chocolate mousse. I love how recipes can evoke memories that are so special. My grandmother always let me get right in the kitchen with her and help her cook. No matter what I threw together, she would always taste it and act like it was the very best food she had ever put into her mouth.

My love for cooking started early in that tiny kitchen, and it has continued to grow ever since. I saw both of my grandmothers and my mother serve our family through wonderful homemade southern foods. Some of my most vivid childhood memories originate in the kitchen or around a table with family. Now that I am all grown up with kids of my own, I love having my kids in the kitchen with me. Gathering together as a family to prepare meals and enjoy them together creates memories and traditions that are so meaningful.

As we enjoyed this Keto/Low Carb easy Chocolate Mousse, I couldn’t help but think about Sunday afternoon meals that we enjoyed around the table laughing and sharing with those we loved when I was growing up. Just because we are following a keto/low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a keto approved sweet treat now and then. I challenge you to gather your family together and enjoy the blessings in your life.

Second Layer

Optional

Instructions

In a large bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.

In a separate bowl, beat on medium speed the cocoa powder, Swerve Confectioners, butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth.

Combine the two bowls and beat with a mixer until everything is combined.

Spray an 8 X 8 pan with cooking spray and spread the chocolate mouse layer evenly in the bottom of the pan.

For the top layer combine the heavy whipping cream and swerve and beat until stiff peaks form.

Spread the homemade whipped cream on top of the chocolate mousse layer.

Optional: Grate 1/4 of a square of an unsweetened chocolate bar on top.

Refrigerate overnight and enjoy!

Notes

The sugar alcohols from Swerve are not included in Nutritional Information since most subtract sugar alcohols from carb count. Optional ingredients are not included in nutritional information. Nutritional information is provided only as a guide.

Mine did the same thing, it wouldn’t mix together at all. I made another batch of the chocolate though, mixed in some whipping cream until it was smooth and then mixed that in with the other. It turned out fabulous!! More chocolate flavor and it tasted like there were crushed oreo’s in it from the first crumbly batch ?? I would do it this way from now on. You would have to recalculate the macros for it though with the added ingredients

How much is a serving size? Also is swerve zero carb?(I’ve never used that before) I made some of the mousse, and substituted ‘sweet additions calorie free stevia sweetener.’ Which has 0 carbs. I’m just trying to find out how much I can have according to the amount o carbs the Recipe has ?? thank you!

Made this yesterday & it was delicious but I had chunks of butter & cream cheese that did not blend in. They both were at room temperature but when you combined all the ingredients together the HWC was cold & I’m guessing it made the butter & cream cheese not blend in well. Please let me know if I should also have the HWC at room temperature. Also is there a solution when whipping HWC it won’t splatter all over the place? I even put is down in the sink but that didn’t help, lol! I really want to make again because it so good!!!

I LOVE this recipe but i hate to make it bc when i use my mixer to mix the cocoa powder with the other ingredients before adding to the whipping cream, it goes EVERYWHERE! what can i do to keep from have cocoa powder ALL over me and my kitchen???



Microwave cooking and nutrition

Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?

How does microwave cooking work?

Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.

Are microwaves safe to cook?

Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.

When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.

Are microwaves bad for your health?

The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.

But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
