Chocolate Mousse

This has to be one of the easiest deserts to make, and it looks so fancy and elegant. I love quick 3 item recipes! This is another recipe that anyone can eat but was created specifically for people dealing with candida issues. I know plenty of people that are eating a restricted diet for candida issues but really miss their desserts. This is a dessert for the milk chocolate lovers. Even friends who do not like stevia have loved this one. But be warned it is not a light dessert. You always have a balance, if it is lean, it is probably filled with sugar, if it is low sugar it has fat. This one which is sweetened with stevia has no sugar in it, but has plenty of fat. That being said, use this as a once in a while treat not an all the time thing. You can eat this plain or with your favorite fruit!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream or coconut cream

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 180 drops or 6 droppers of stevia

If using regular cream

  1. Whip the heavy whipping cream until light peaks form

  2. Add in the stevia and coco powder and continue whipping until stiff.

If using coconut cream

  1. Take your can of coconut cream and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Do not shake it the purpose is to let the solid and liquid separate. Make sure it is coconut cream, meaning full fat not coconut milk or light milk.

  2. When you open the can drain the liquid portion and either use it for something else or just toss it.

  3. Take the thick cold cream and whip it until light peaks form.

  4. Add the stevia and coco powder in. Coconut whipped cream is not always as stiff as regular whipped cream.

  5. Some people have reported inconsistencies between different brands or even using the same coconut brand but different cans. Just get a few cans so you can be one of the cans will work. That being said even if it does not whip up like normal it will still work wonderfully for dipping fruit.

Serve either one with strawberries or your favorite fruit.

1/4 cup serving has about 102 calories in it.
