Keto Fluffy Chocolate Mousse

 Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/3 cup low-carb sweetener

 
Directions
  • Using mixer and large bowl, mix the heavy whipping cream and sweetener on medium-low speed until it thickens up.

  • Add cacao powder and beat until stiff peaks form.

  • Divide between 4 serving glasses and decorate as desired.

 
NOTES 
  • Chill in the refrigerator for just a few minutes after preparing or serve immediately. This will keep your mousse from having that ‘deflated’ texture.
  • When properly stored, it can last for 5 to 6 days in the fridge. Freezing not recommended.
  • For a lighter chocolate, reduce cocoa 1 tablespoon or so.

Curried Peanut Dip (keto friendly)

This creamy, spicy-sweet dip will be loose and pourable when warm, but it will thicken once fully chilled. We love to pair it with leftover roast or rotisserie chicken, jammy eggs, cucumber spears, and roasted sweet potatoes for the perfect (desk-friendly) lunch.


MAKES ABOUT 1 PINT

Ingredients 
  • 1  Tbsp. vegetable oil

  • ¼  cup jarred red curry paste

  • 1  14.5-oz. can coconut milk

  • ½  cup creamy peanut butter

  • 3  Tbsp. unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 1  Tbsp. fish sauce

  • 1  Tbsp. honey

  • Kosher salt


Directions
Step 1
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium. Add curry paste and cook, stirring frequently, until paste begins to stick to bottom of saucepan and is very fragrant, 2–3 minutes.

Step 2
Whisk in coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook, whisking occasionally, until mixture turns darker in color and is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and whisk in peanut butter, vinegar, fish sauce, and honey. Season to taste with salt; it should be well seasoned since the things you are dipping in it may not be (i.e., boiled eggs, cukes, etc.). Let cool to room temperature, then transfer to an airtight portable container and chill.
 
Notes0
Do Ahead: Dip can be made 4 days ahead. Keep chilled.
