Low-Carb Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mousse


I love chocolate.  It is my favorite thing, like ever!  If it provided all the nutrition I needed, I could easily live on nothing but chocolate for the rest of my life.  And I'm not picky, either!  I like chocolate in ALL its forms.  I like chocolate milk, chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, chocolate wafers, chocolate plain (of course), and even chocolate wine!  Suddenly, I'm reminded of Bubba from Forrest Gump.  This is a super-duper-easy, low-carb, no-cook, chocolate mousse recipe that only calls for three ingredients.  The garnish is completely optional, but it sure does make it look pretty!  Obviously, since the garnish is optional, its stats are not included in the nutritional information.


*BONUS:  This stuff freezes really well!  It makes a crazy-creamy ice cream dish.  I divvy mine up among a few 1/2 cup containers and freeze it for single-serving ice cream.  :)



Ingredients:

Directions:

1.  Combine the heavy whipping cream, cocoa powder, and Truvia.  Blend in a "traditional" blender, with a hand mixer, or with an immersion blender until thickened.

2.  Top with sugar-free chocolate chips, chunks, or shavings.

Yields: 4 servings (about 1/2 cup each)
