Low carb chocolate mousse
- 1¼ cups 300 ml heavy whipping cream
- ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 2 egg yolkegg yolks
- 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
- 3 oz. 85 g dark chocolate with a minimum of 80% cocoa solids
- Break or chop the chocolate into small pieces. Melt in the microwave (20-second intervals, stirring in between) or using a double boiler. Set aside at room temperature to cool.
- Whip the cream to soft peaks. Add vanilla towards the end.
- Mix egg yolks with salt in a separate bowl.
- Add the melted chocolate to the egg yolks and mix to a smooth batter.
- Add a couple of spoonfuls of whipped cream to the chocolate mix and stir to losen it a bit. Add the remaining cream and fold it through.
- Divide the batter into ramekins or serving glasses of your choice. Place in the fridge and let chill for at least 2 hours. Serve as is, or with fresh berries.
Plain chocolate mousse is amazing. So enjoy it. But if you seek variety, go ahead and flavor your mousse with licorice powder, orange zest, peppermint. If you don't mind alcohol in your cooking, try dark rum, bourbon or whiskey. All flavorings should be mixed with the eggs before combining with the cream.
I would not run the risk of making this mousse with unpasteurized eggs, given the current 4/16/18 Nationwide recall of eggs in 9 states due to Salmonella (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/eggs-recalled-salmonella-fda-notice-206-million/).
Surely, Diet Doctor can do better than this to protect the health of its users, especially when many pay for its services.
10/10 for taste and ease.
There is absolutely no taste of eggs. Zero.
IT IS DELICIOUS!! Happy Valentine's Day all.
My neighbor has chickens and I buy eggs from her when she has enough - Based on what you said, I am hoping that if I just wash mine off the same way as you do I am good to go. She just sells them to me 'sorta straight from the chicken' so it seems all should still be intact?
Thanks for your help on that
Thanks, Jenny! I'll pass your message along to our team!
Let us know how that works for you!
Net cards are 7g, so I'm not sure why this wouldn't be keto.
But also new to Keto (day 3) so still trying to understand everything.
A receipe is considered keto if it has less than or equal to 4 energy percentage carbs. In this recipe, carbs are 10%.
