Dr. Rosemarie Cannarella Lorenzetti offers a healthy recipe for low-carb chocolate "mousse" that includes what some might consider an unlikely ingredient: avocado.
Posted in , Apr 20, 2016
This was adapted from an on-line Atkin’s recipe to satisfy my chocolate passion and need for a sweet treat. It is easy and quick to make—but actually tastes better if refrigerated overnight and eaten the next day.
|½ ripe avocado||1 tsp. granulated stevia|
|1 tsp. dark chocolate powder||1 Tbsp. whipping cream|
1. Combine all ingredients and whip with hand-held beater
2. Put in small bowl and refrigerate.
3. Eat with a dollop of whipped cream on top, with a sprinkle of pecans, almonds or walnuts.
Hints: You may need to add more (or less) Stevia (sweeten to taste). The dark chocolate powder is a bit bitter—add a dash of lemon juice if needed.
