Chocolate Orange Mousse
This low carb, chocolate-orange mousse is light, fluffy and incredibly tasty! With only requires 5 ingredients, 2 directions and 10 minutes of preparation time, this heavenly mousse is one of our favorite keto desserts!
Everyone who knows my husband, knows he is a massive chocoholic! Before going keto, the most common presents he received at Christmas (every year!) were boxes of chocolates! Even though he loved them all, his favorites were the chocolate-orange ones! So when I was developing this recipe, I constantly had him in mind.
The Best Lazy Dessert…
As you guys probably know by now, I absolutely love spending time cooking and baking… but there are days, like today, where I feel extremely lazy. And this, my friends, is the best lazy dessert ever. It only:
- Requires 5 ingredients
- Has 2 directions AND
- Takes 10 minutes to prepare!
Could it get much better than that? Nope, I don’t think so either!
As I mentioned above, chocolate-orange is a favorite flavor combination in our house. However, you can omit the orange zest (and orange extract) for a plain (but delicious) chocolate mousse, or create your favorite chocolate combination with a few drops of your favorite flavored extracts. If you’re feeling a little stumped on what flavor you are fancying (like me…a lot), here’s a few suggestions to spark inspiration:
- Salted Caramel
How To Make This Perfect Mousse…
To make this marvelous mousse, use an electric beater to beat all the ingredients together, until stiff peaks appear. Cover it (or transfer it to an air tight container), and put it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (preferably a couple hours longer if you have the time, but its not necessary). Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and ENJOY!
