Keto Friendly Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

Keto Friendly Low Carb Chocolate Mousse - Only 4 Ingredients - 5 minutes to make with and immersion blender.

How I invented Keto Friendly Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

My kitchen closes at 7:00 PM. This is a self-imposed rule. This usually isn’t a problem, except when I am writing or editing. I forget to eat and my eating window quickly closes in on me. Today was no exception. I had a BPC earlier in the morning, then had a small lunch a few hours later. Around 6:00 PM, I heated my leftover Broccoli and Cheddar Soup for supper but I soon realised I was low on protein and fat for the day.

A thought crossed my mind. Dare I? I dared. After all, the soup had broccoli and I had my powdered greens early in the day. My veggies were eaten, now it was time for a legally sanctioned treat. With gleeful anticipation, I created this rich, decadent, chocolaty and super easy dessert. It took me less than 5 minutes to make and I used 4 ingredients. I’m not kidding.

I am sure you could use this mousse for a filling in a Keto friendly, gluten free cake or for a low carb icing if you are serving your sweets immediately, it’s quite substantial but not overly sweet.

I didn’t think of such things as I am not a baker. I just scooped the awesomeness and put it in a bowl and ate it as is.

Yield: 1 Serving
Calories: 423; Fat 25.6g; Net Carbs 3.4g; Protein 45g

Ingredients:
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbsp New Zealand Unflavoured Whey Powder
Stevia drops
1 tbsp cocoa powder

Directions
Put everything into a very clean and chilled immersion blender friendly bowl or measuring cup.
Use the whisk attachment of an immersion blender. If you don’t have one, use a regular whisk or hand beaters.

Beat until creamy and thick. (About 1 minute!)

Tips:
Read your Whey powder nutritional value labels carefully! I use grass-fed, unflavoured whey whenever I can. As it is lower in carbs and higher in nutrition.
Clean your immersion blender easily by putting a couple of drops of dish soap in the bowl you used to whip the cream. Add hot water and place the blender in the hot soapy water and let it spin for a few seconds. Rinse and it is clean!

Easy Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe – Low Carb Keto Friendly

Soup Recipe Easy Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe - Low Carb Keto Friendly

Low-Carb, Keto Friendly, Broccoli and Cheddar Easy Soup Recipe

(Another on-the-fly recipe by Katherine)

ingredients

240g (8.5 oz) Broccoli Chopped (Peel Stems)
40 g (1.4 oz) Cheddar Cheese – freshly grated
2 cups Chicken broth
1 cup Water
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
Mrs Dash Seasoning, Salt, Pepper, pinch Nutmeg.  Feel free to substitute with your favourite spice.

Optional:
1/2 small onion chopped fine, cook with broccoli
The nutritional counts of this recipe do not include the onion.
I didn’t think to add onion when making this the first time and I honestly didn’t notice the difference!  However, it might be nice.

Optional garnish – 2 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled as a garnish. Again, the nutritional values for bacon are not included in this recipe.

Directions:

Heat chicken broth and water to a low boil.   Add 1/4 pinch of salt if you are using low-sodium broth.
Add chopped broccoli (and onion if you are adding it). Cook until broccoli is tender.

Transfer everything to a high-speed blender, blend until smooth, then return everything to the pot, lower heat to medium.
Tip A food processor will not blend this soup well as it will not break down the fibre in the broccoli. Use a blender!

Add the heavy cream, cheese, and spices. Stir gently on medium heat until the cheese is completely melted and incorporated.

Optional: If you like a really creamy soup without any texture, use an immersion blender at this stage. I also like a lot of cracked pepper in my soup.
