Tip For Low-Carb Diet Success
My biggest tip for low-carb diet success is to embrace new recipes and unusual ingredients that you have not used before. I’m talking about ingredients like erythritol and stevia glycerite (natural sugar substitutes) which are both used in this 15 Minute Low-Carb Rich Chocolate Mousse recipe.
Order some from Amazon and try it out. You can make so many beautiful, low-carb desserts and treats with natural sugar substitutes like these. They have no calories, no carbs, do not affect blood sugar levels and are not artificial.

15 Minute Low-Carb Rich Chocolate Mousse
Melt chocolate in the microwave by breaking up into smaller pieces and then microwave in short bursts of 20 secs on 75% power. Stir after each burst to ensure the chocolate doesn't burn.
Add cocao powder, vanilla extract, coconut cream, sweeteners (powdered & liquid), and salt to the bowl.
- Process for 15 seconds until well combined.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl again and whiz again for 10 seconds or so.
- Add the melted chocolate to the other ingredients and process for 15-20 seconds.
- It should be smooth and have a rich, velvet like texture.
- Serve with a few raspberries and cream.
The mousse is best served immediately so it retains it's creamy texture, however it can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Once refrigerated, it loses its soft texture so heat briefly in the microwave (5-10 seconds) to soften before serving.
Alternatively, any leftovers can be frozen in small portions and turned into fat bombs!
