Chocolate Mousse LCHF and Paleo
Regular followers of this blog will know we've already featured some lovely recipes by Swedish chef Birgitta Höglund. She features on Diet Doctor site and also has her own low carb/Paleo recipe blog.
Today we have not one, but two delicious ideas. The first one is just brilliant if you follow the LCHF lifestyle, and the second one is equally brilliant but is more suited to the Paleo style. I'm sure there are some readers who may in fact try them both ... as always, dear reader, the choice is yours ...
Chocolate Mousse LCHF 6-8 servings
1.8 oz (50 g) dark chocolate 70-90% cocoa
2 large egg yolks, from free-range eggs
6 3/4 fl. oz. (200 ml) heavy (double) cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (not vanilla sugar)
You can find the instructions on how to make this delicious LCHF mousse at Birgitta's blog here
Chocolate Mousse à la Paleo (4 servings)
3 1/3 fl. oz. (100 ml) coconut milk
2 tablespoons cashew nut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
a small pinch of sea salt
Cocoa nibs for garnish

For those of you who haven't met Birgitta ... here she is,
I must say I love the look of all the great fresh and low carb food on her table
Now there are times when eating a chocolate mousse when some halved strawberries or raspberries go well, so why not add them to your shopping list, they are very LCHF friendly.

Hope you may enjoy a chocolate mousse soon ...
All the best Jan
