Chocolate Chia Seed Mousse
A keto friendly chia seed mousse that’s made with seven ingredients and is only 2 net carbs!
Chia seed made their official debut back in the 1970s!
You know, those terra cotta planters shaped into different characters and faces to which water was added just so that the chia seeds could sprout to make it look like hair.
Good thing these seeds have come a long way since then because they are chock full of nutrients that are better utilized by the human body, not a planter!
Chia Seed = Power Seed!
They may be small but chia seeds provide us with:
- A great source of fiber!
- Minerals like iron and calcium
- omega-3 fatty acids
Chia seeds have been found to play a role in supporting skin health, keeping us looking young! They support our digestion, heart health, and can aid in weight loss and building muscle!
An Easy Treat!
What I love most about this chocolate chia seed mousse recipe that it’s a “dump recipe”! Which means you can dump the ingredients into one vessel to get the job done. Here, we use a high speed blender to mix together chia seeds, coconut cream, cacao powder, keto-friendly sweetener of choice, vanilla powder, and a touch of salt.
Honestly, the hardest part will be waiting for it to chill so that you can experience that perfectly smooth, rich consistency.
Once it’s done, go ahead and play around with the toppings! Try some coconut whipped cream, chopped nuts, shredded coconuts or berries. Whatever you choose, it will be delicious!
Perfect Any Time of Day!
And just because this is a chocolate recipe, doesn’t mean you have to wait until after dinner or a special occasion to enjoy this!
This chocolate chia seed mousse is nutrient dense, so don’t feel guilty if you want to enjoy this for breakfast or a mid-day pick me up!
