Keto Mocha Mousse


Ed continues the ketogenic diet - a high fat, low carb diet. The diet has not halted the growth of his tumor, as we had hoped, but since Ed is feeling well, he has chosen to continue the diet. Especially as he starts radiation today, we hope that the anti-inflammation aspect of the diet will help him feel well during treatment.

After a year on the diet it feels normal to cook special food for Ed. I'm always on the lookout for simple, delicious recipes. Keto food can be tasty so if I'm not licking the spatula when I fix a recipe, then it isn't good enough.

A friend gave me this recipe, and I've made it frequently this summer. Super easy and definitely passes the yummy test.

I split the recipe into two servings with 2 net carbs each. If you are not worried about carbs, you could change the sweetener to sugar or honey but, you would have to adjust the amounts.

Keto Mocha Mousse

1/4 tsp instant coffee
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/16 tsp pure stevia powder (or sweetened to your taste preference)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Place all ingredients in a bowl. Beat until cream forms stiff peaks. Serve.

Variation: Omit the coffee and the cocoa powder and stir in pureed red raspberries after beating cream.

  4. This looks so good Gina. Can honey or agave be used instead of stevia?

  5. Praying that God will do miracles through the upcoming radiation treatments. Praise to our Lord Jesus for all the daily miracles of health and strength that He has given Ed daily during this past year, and for His daily miracles of strength and health that He has given to you also, Gina! Praying for God's continued blessings on your family. We love you!

  6. Continued prayers. I am doing intermittent fasting. I have read that fasting is also good for sickness. Since I am doing it for weight loss, I do not know all the details. Perhaps you are already inundated with information but I just thought I would mention it. Chris W.

  8. That looks lovely! I will be trying it! Have you tried a keto panna cotta? Very similar, except that it's just set with gelatin instead of whipped.

    Praying for you and your family daily!
