THE Premier Low-Carb store .. .. AND Meeting Place

I giggled when I saw what Jonathan had sent me in an email. I had asked my youngest son to forward the photo he took of my mousse. In the subject line, it read simply: "Mouse". Just like with the word "dessert", if one leaves one 's' out, it becomes desert, as in a hot and dry, sandy desert.

Easy, rich chocolate mousse – freeze until more solid for an ice cream-like treat says my hubby. The grated chocolate takes the chocolatey taste up a notch and adds texture contast. I have several mousse recipes in my cookbooks – Creamy Delight Orange Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Coconut Mousse, Double Chocolate Whirl, and Snow Pudding.

8 oz spreadable cream cheese
1 ¼ cups coconut milk (from a can)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1/2 cup sugar
½ cup powdered erythritol
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp xanthan or guar gum
½ oz unsweetened baker’s chocolate, grated

In food processor, process cream cheese. Add coconut milk; process. Add liquid sweetener, powdered erythritol, cocoa and xanthan or guar gum. Process until smooth and thickened. Sprinkle each serving with grated chocolate shavings. Serve immediately or chill and serve later.

Guess what I am making tomorrow to go with my LC Choco Mayo cake.. ;]

TY so much GF!

Jennifer said...

Hmm, your chocolate cake sounds yummy, Christina. You love that recipe don't you? I'll have to try it one of these days, since you like it so much. I think it was originally from BettyR?

I took you up on your offer to make a video on your recipes. My wife loves this one. I like it too since it simple and easy to make for her (even if I not much of a chocolate fan). Thanks Jennifer, and if you want me to tweak the attribution let me know.

Hi Kent - I was tickled pink to see your video and you making my recipe. How cool is that? Every time you do that, I'll blog about your video so that we make the most of the synergy - is that okay? We're going into the city now, but tomorrow I must do some blogging, as I'm woefully behind this month.

Oh boy, what planet are you and my eldest son, Daniel, from, Kent? LOL Daniel also does not care too much for chocolate. I love it, but it gives me migraines sometimes. So happy your wife likes that dessert. :-)

You still look great many years later after going low-carb - amazing!
