Easy Chocolate Mousse (Low Carb)

We've followed a low carb eating plan a number of times over the years. 
We try to keep carbs to a minimum, but it isn't easy...especially during the summer when I have a baked goods stand at the farmer market. 

EEKKK!!

I love having recipes to follow so we're not just eating 'plain' meat and veggies. 
I've made this one for years.  I know there are lots of different ideas all over the net as to the amounts of these simple ingredients, but this is what I use. 

If you need it sweeter, or more chocolate-y - just adjust to your liking.  I was excited to add a pop of flavor by adding a bit of coffee extract - MMM!

*TIP* - I froze the bowl and beaters for about 15 minutes so the cream whipped up faster. 

And of course, if you want to make this with REAL sugar, go for it! You'll just want to beat it long enough the sugar is no longer grainy.

Enjoy soon!

EASY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE 

1 c. heavy cream
3 pkts. sweetener
(we like Truvia)
2 - 3 Tb. unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. coffee or caramel extract, to taste, optional

Add all the ingredients to a (preferably)
chilled bowl and mixer beaters (see TIP above). Begin beating on low speed, until everything is incorporated, then whip it on high until it reaches stiff peaks.  Top with a little bit of whipped topping...a sprinkle of baking cocoa and ENJOY!
