Healthy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

lakanto-goldenBody Ecology's sugar-free and guilt-free healthy chocolate mousse tastes as good as the real thing. Our light and fluffy chocolate mousse is made with zero-calorie Lakanto sweetener, which does not leave an unpleasant aftertaste.

Here is a recipe from my new cookbook available now! Over 250 sugar-free, gluten-free Body Ecology friendly recipes including smoothies, brunch, soups, dressings and dips, quick-and easy meals, desserts, and much more!

This delightful mousse is not only delicious, it’s dairy-free! For a twist on an old favorite, try adding dried orange peel in step 1.

The desire for sweet-tasting foods and drinks is quite normal. In fact, our very first food, mother’s milk, was warm and sweet, and we’ve formed an emotional bond with this taste, so avoiding sweets is not the answer! But as you know, refined white sugar or corn syrup is poison, and even natural sweeteners like agave and honey will feed yeast and make your body more acidic. Body Ecology recipes use sweeteners like Stevia and Lakanto so that you can make sweet treats for you and your family that actually taste like they are made with sugar. Even though traditionally we like to eat desserts after a meal, it’s best to eat them separately on an empty stomach. And when you eat them, please drink a fermented beverage as well.
