Keto Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is my toddler’s all time favorite. Even at times I love to indulge in the heavenly chocolaty mousse. My physician has advised me to follow low carbohydrate diet because of some medical issues. And there was I craving for something sweet very badly. But then I wanted it to be guilt free as well. So I went ahead and prepared this heavenly keto friendly (Ketogenic diet is a type of food habit that includes high amount of fat, moderate amount of protein and low amount of carbohydrate) chocolate mousse.
