Paleo Avocado chocolate mousse – 2 recipes: Sugar free or refined sugar free
My favorite way to make this paleo avocado chocolate mousse is using my sugar free crystal sweetener – I love Swerve or Monk fruit sugar. You know how much I love sugar free dessert recipes right? Even if I am ok to indulge on some sweet refined sugar free desserts someday I do prefer a 100% sugar free recipe for myself. When you have been pre diabetic trust me, you are always worried about going back to your sugar addiction. But I have got a family who don’t enjoy the sugar free sweetener as much as I do. Monk fruit sugar or erythritol are good for you it is natural but some people don’t appreciate their taste at first. It could have a slight fresh /minty aftertaste. After 5 years using it, I don’t notice this anymore but well, my husband and the kids usually prefer a refined sugar dessert.
SO that is why today I tested this recipe two ways.
1- 100% Sugar free Avocado chocolate mousse (green ramekin pictures) I am using only 2 tablespoon of sugar free crystal sweetener – swerve or monk fruit sugar blend. The texture is pretty much the same as the recipe using dates. Honestly, I love the taste of sugar free one ! It is silky smooth and creamy, less dense than the one with dates. Plus there is only 3.8 g net carbs per serve and you save 100 kcal per serve !!! Amazing right?
2- 100% Refined Sugar free Avocado chocolate mousse (white ramekin) That is the recipe I make for my husband and the kids. I am using medjool dates, they are softer and blend very well without soaking time. The texture of the chocolate mousse using dates is slightly thicker more like a cream. It is delcious but more fulfilling too. I recommend to serve this one in smaller serve – may be for 6 people instead of 4. It will make very small portion but it is enough I think. The kids loves to pair this mousse with fresh raspberries. I agree, it is a great combo if you love fruits and chocolate. This version with dates will get super dense if you store it in the fridge for few hours. It is absolutely AMAZING !!!
Below I provided both nutrition panel to cater any diet. Feel free to try the recipe that makes you feel good and happy. As you can see on those two pictures, the texture of the sugar free chocolate mousse (green ramekin) is very similar to the one using dates (white ramekin).
