I love Chocolate.
I also love Simple.
Here are simple recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth. Some of these recipes will also give you the theanine and "feel good" nutrients in chocolate - without all the sugar!
My favorite this winter is not really a dessert - but I enjoy it just about as much! 🙂
KETO HOT CHOCOLATE
This has been my favorite beverage this winter! Super simple. Delicious. Truly a relaxing cup of, "AHHH!" 🙂
1 TBSP CACAO POWDER
3 TINY SCOOPS NOW STEVIA
BIG SHOT OF CREAM (Raw is AMAZING, but I use whatever is available!)
For extra long mental clarity - or if I am wanting to pause or suppress my hunger a bit I add:
1 TBSP GRASS-FED BUTTER
1 TBSP MCT or COCONUT OIL (If this is your first time using MCT be sure to start with a teaspoon and ease your way up to a Tablespoon over a few days to a week. (The first time I had MCT oil, my brother-in-law gave be an overflowing, heaping tablespoon - I RAN to the bathroom and didn't touch MCT oil again for months!)
MINI KETO CHEESECAKES
I tested this recipe out at two holiday parties this year! Each time they were a big hit!
In order to make it easy to transport, I left the mini cheesecakes on a serving tray with a glass ball jar containing defrosted blueberries or fresh raspberries with a serving spoon so each person could add fruit as they pleased. I would definitely do it again!
Mini Keto Cheesecakes Recipe:
8oz Cream Cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3-6 scoops Stevia
Blend together and bake in pyrex dish or mini muffin cups 350° for 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Serve topped with fresh berries and/or real cream whipped with a scoop of stevia.
Keto Chocolate Mousse
Ok. So, MY Keto Chocolate Mousse didn't look like the above picture - more of a faded look to the chocolate, yet still beautiful enough for a party with the blueberries and chocolate chunks on top.
I honestly just eat the mousse as is. Who wants to wait? This is chocolate!
Keto Chocolate Mousse Recipe:
- 1/4 - 1/2 Ripe Avocado
- 2 Tbsp Cream (raw is amazing!)
- 1 Tbsp Cacao Powder
- 3 Scoops Stevia
I put the above ingredients into my personal Ninja cup - but blending it up any way you have handy will work!

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Quick, Simple Chocolate dipped Strawberries are the perfect Keto Dessert!
Healthy and delicious!
MELT 85% Dark Chocolate Chips are my favorite out of the package, but there is some sugar! The best keto option, of course has no sugar. You can either use Lily's chocolate chips or use 100% Dark Chocolate chips (a client insists that a handful of dark chocolate chips instantly reduces his blood pressure when high - I'd love to hear if you have found this true!)
DIP Strawberries into melted chocolate by holding the top. (Make sure your strawberries are organic as they are one of the "dirty dozen" and usually has lots of pesticides used to grow them.)
PLACE onto waxed paper and
REFRIGERATE for two hours.
