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)
Sea salt

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

To find the instructions on how to make this lovely Paleo mousse go over to Birgitta's blog here

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.

strawberries 6gm blackberries 5.1 gm raspberries 4.6gm of carbohydrate per 100gm weight.

Hope you may enjoy a chocolate mousse soon ...

All the best Jan

Many thanks for your comment Lisa, I find chocolate mousses are very popular in our family, and these are both very nice recipe suggestions from Birgitta.

The paleo version is delicious (with a little Splenda and a few raspberries).
