Interesting Facts

  • The use of erythritol as a sugar substitute in this recipe helps to keep it keto-friendly. Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol that is low in calories and does not raise blood sugar levels.
  • Adding a small amount of instant espresso powder enhances the chocolate flavor and provides a subtle hint of coffee, giving the mousse a more complex taste.
  • Dark chocolate is a rich source of antioxidants and can have potential health benefits when consumed in moderate amounts. Opting for sugar-free dark chocolate ensures the dessert remains low in carbs.
