Carl’s Chocolate Mousse

Here’s a simple recipe for chocolate mousse that I eat one spoonful at a time. It’s rich, sweet, and chocolaty, and being fat-adapted I don’t have to eat a lot to be satisfied. I use Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, but you can use your favorite. Since I started a ketogenic diet in February, 2016 I have done lots of tests with artificial sweeteners. Many of them spiked my blood glucose. I found, though, that Xylitol does not. What’s more, I can’t tell Xylitol from sugar. It’s important to note that if you have dogs, you should not have Xylitol in your house, as it is poisonous to them and could actually kill them.

I introduced this recipe on my ketogenic lifestyle podcast with Richard Morris, 2 Keto Dudes.

  1. Whip the cream, but not too much - very soft peaks. I use a stainless steel bowl that has been chilled in the freezer, and a hand mixer.
  2. Add the other ingredients and mix with a spoon (at first), and then with the mixer, until completely combined.
  3. Chill in the fridge overnight so the sweetener dissolves. Alternatively, you could dissolve the sweetener in cream over low heat, but you'd have to chill just a little it before whipping. Enjoy.
