Low Carb Chocolate Mousse Recipe

/ / / Low Carb Chocolate Mousse Recipe

This low carb chocolate mousse is a delicious dessert that won’t stack up on the carb content.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may know that I’ve been eating clean AND low carb for a few weeks now. The results have been amazing for both my pant size and my blood sugar. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that everyone should eat this way. I’m simply saying that this is what’s working for me at the moment, so I’m sticking with it.

Clean Eating Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

This particular recipe may not be for everyone as it is definitely high in fat. But part of following a low carb diet (for most people) is increasing your intake of healthy fats. If this recipe doesn’t fit into your eating plan, I have a ton more in my dessert section that you might enjoy. I hope you’ll check them out!

Now if you ARE following a low carb / higher fat eating plan, then this might just be the dessert recipe to get you through the holidays without feeling deprived.

  1. What brand of stevia do you recommend?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Katrina – I generally don’t. I am growing my own stevia plant and will do a post on that when I actually have enough plant to work with. It’s still pretty small. But if you have to purchase, I recommend the pure liquid form. Far less processed than the powder as I found out.

  2. Hi Tiffany,
    Always have loved your site! I found this desert and I know it’s one of your older post, but, I hope you get my question. Can you direct me to the little cookies they look so crunchy and yummy and I was not able to find them in your desert section?
    Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Louise – Little cookies? You mean the chocolate chips? What I placed on top here were just larger, round pieces of baking chocolate. Is that what you meant?

  3. Yes I guess to me they looked like little chocolate cookies? Ok, I I guess I have never seen chocolate like that but thanks I will look for that.

  4. I’m eating low carb, but find it difficult to get healthy days in my diet. Your comment implied that this was helping to lose weight? Do you count calories while eating low carb? I was thinking to cut calories, maybe substituting cottage cheese for the ricotta would work? Thanks. Looks good.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shawna – Every person is different. I know the majority of low carbers do not count calories. But I’m sure there are some that do. Depends on what works best for you. Just going low carb alone should help significantly if you keep your carbs low enough.

  5. Yes, I eat low carb and count calories. Even if you don’t think it has carbs, it probably does. Eating too many calories in general make you gain weight. You need to be in a caloric deficit to lose weight. 3500 calories = 1 pound is the general rule. Of course, everyone is different. Use an app like myfitnesspal to log everything you eat. And I mean EVERYTHING: The dressing on your salad, the oil you sautéed with, the sauce you baked your chicken in, the soda you drank, your morning coffee with all the fixings. It will make you aware of everything you consume. You’ll soon learn your idea of a serving size is way, way off.

    After cutting carbs, I find it hard to hit my daily calorie goal of 1300 a day (I also eat clean, limit fruit, and workout every day, eat tons of veggies), in case you worry about starving on low carb. I also limit my drinks to green tea and water.

    Hope that helps.
