Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream, divided (14 fl. oz.)
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest or 1-2 drops orange oil
  • 1 serving Orange Cream Keto Chow
  • whipped cream & chocolate chips for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Place 1/4 cup of the heavy cream and all the chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each interval until the chocolate is completely melted. Stir until glossy and smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the remaining heavy cream with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Add the vanilla extract and orange zest, then sprinkle the Keto Chow over the whipped cream and beat on medium speed until fluffy and stiff.
  • Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the bowl and beat on medium speed until combined.
  • Spoon the mousse into four dessert dishes, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least one hour. Serve garnished with whipped cream and a sprinkling of chocolate chips if desired. Keep refrigerated for up to three days
