Easy-Peasy Paleo Chocolate Mousse
I love a good healthy alternative to my favorite chocolate desserts. If I didn’t make myself these kinds of treats, I would likely be putting away a box of Oreos every evening. My sweet tooth is like no other, especially at night–gotta have my dessert after dinner!
Here’s what you will need to make this low carb, gluten free, sugar free and paleo double chocolate mousse:
- canned coconut milk (full fat)
- sugar-free dark chocolate (such as Lily’s)
- Steviva sweetener (stevia + erythritol blend)
- vanilla extract
- salt (optional)
For the meringue:
Steviva Erythritol and Stevia blend
I really love the Steviva blend it contains one of the highest quality Rebaudioside A (stevia extract) an all natural grain extract, erythritol, a filler which is naturally occurring in a variety of foods and derived from non-GMO fermented grain. I found a lot of great information about stevia and erythritol that I actually didn’t know on their website.
The Steviva Blend is granulated like sugar, dissolves quickly and has a 2:1 sweetness ratio to sugar, so it is very easy to measure making it ideal to bake and cook with and it also has less than one calorie and less than one carbohydrate per serving. Also, it’s safe for diabetics and may be used in hot or cold liquids or sprinkled on cereals and fruit. I personally like it better than using just a granulated erythritol. I feel it bakes well and tastes better as a blend.

Chocolate Mousse with Toasted Meringue
Rich and delicious double chocolate mousse topped with a beautiful toasted meringue. This decadent recipes is easy to whip up and made paleo, gluten free, sugar free and low carb--it's bound to satisfy all chocolate cravings!
1 c coconut milk (full fat)
3 tbsp Steviva stevia & erythritol blend
3/4 c sugar-free dark chocolate chips, Lily's
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt optional
crushed nuts for layering optional
In a small sauce pan or pot, heat the coconut milk, Steviva and vanilla extract until just before a boil. Place the chocolate chips into a heat proof bowl and pour the hot coconut milk mixture over the chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes and then whisk until smooth. Distribute the chocolate mixture between 6 serving cups and place them in the refrigerator to chill for one hour or until solid.
Once ready to serve, prepare your meringue. Place the egg white, Stevivia and cream of tarter into a heat proof bowl over a small pot of boiling water (double boiler) and whisk until the steviva has melted and no more grittiness remains. Remove the bowl from the heat and use a hand held mixer to beat, starting on low and gradually beating on high. Beat for 5-7 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Carefully place the meringue in a piping bag.
Remove the chocolate cups from the refrigerator and top with crushed nuts if desired before finishing with meringue. Use a kitchen torch to toast meringue if desired.
