Heavenly Mousse

Save or PrintThis was one of my first really good creations, and when I shared the recipe with my new online buddies, they started telling me I should write a cookbook. One of them actually dubbed this OIAB (“O” In A Bowl…. if you still don’t get it… never mind!).
Somewhat to everyone’s surprise, I actually DID publish that cookbook, just 6 months later  Here is another sample from  Cooking TLC Volume 1, for your dieting PLEASURE.

Heavenly Mousseheavenly mousse

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 Tb. unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 Tb. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granular Splenda™
Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature before beginning. This is easiest to make in a stand mixer.
Beat heavy whipping cream until peaks form, and set aside. Be careful – If you over do this step, you’ll make butter!
Beat cream cheese by itself for several minutes until very smooth, scraping down sides of bowl and beaters as needed. Add Splenda™, peanut butter and cocoa powder. Mix very well, scraping down beaters and sides again.
Incorporate one scoop of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture first, to lighten it. Then, by hand, using a wide rubber spatula, fold in remaining whipped cream. Do not over mix, it is okay if you can still see veins of white streaking the mix.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Try to eat just ONE, okay. (That’s one serving, not one batch.)

6 servings, each: 303 cal, 29 g fat (17 g sat.), 7 g carb , 4 g protein

Carbs can be reduced by using only half as much cream, or substituting sugar free syrup or Fiberfit for some or all of the Splenda™. By omitting the chocolate and peanut butter and substituting extracts or sugar free syrup, the flavor combinations are practically endless! Experiment and find your favorite.  I often use 3-4 Tb. of Sugar Free DaVinci Gourmet™ syrups in place of half the Splenda. I like to make raspberry mousse (with rasspberry syrup) and add ripe berries (see photo), or peach, with fresh diced peaches added. You could also add nuts, unsweetened coconut, etc.
Make this recipe with Fiberfit and cut the net carbs in HALF! Made with 3 Tb. Fiberfit in place of 1 cup Splenda, each serving has just 3 net carbs! (5 g carb, 2 g fiber).

About Karen

Less than a year after starting a low-carb diet, I was TEN SIZES and SIX HUNDRED cholesterol points lighter! Now, YEARS later, (I am into "decades" now) I STILL love and live a low-carb life! Interests I have TWO grand-angels now, a husband of 24 years, and two kids, one of whom is grown and making those grandbabies (my girl), the other still in school (my boy). I do everything for the office end of my husband's electrical contracting business, as well as everything for my website(s), and am fortunate enough to (read that: I worked my butt off so I could!) live in the beautiful Vail Valley of Colorado. When I can find a spare minute, which isn't that often, I like to ride my big bad motorcycle or ski, depending on the weather.
