- 2 tbsps. of coconut oil
- 1/4 cup organic cacao powder

- 1-2 tbsps. of liquid chocolate stevia or monk fruit
Step #1: Steam cauliflower until soft.
Step #2: In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients in basic recipe

Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fantastic, micronutrient-dense, fat burning, ketogenic dessert or snack recipe the family will love! You will really enjoy the unique mousse like texture on this and the collagen protein is great for your gut, hair, skin, joints and nails.
Cauliflower is a great low-carb, keto food that is rich in fiber, B vitamins and anti-cancer agents such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbonyl that help to support glutathione levels and detoxify bad estrogens.
Dark chocolate or cacao is rich in theobromine and polyphenols that improve circulation throughout the body and support balanced levels of dopamine and serotonin to keep us happy and motivated!!
You will want to make sure you use true gelatin in this recipe, as collagen peptides or bone broth protein will not create the gelatinous like texture that is key to form the chocolate mousse. Try this recipe out and let us know how you like it in the comments box below!
I’m wondering if chia seed would be a keto approved substitute for the collagen or is there anything else to thicken it?
You can try it Holly! If you are looking for non animal products then perhaps using nut butter would help thicken it as well.
Oh wow! Great idea, thank you!
18 carbs per serving?? Where are the carbs coming from? Seems very high for a “keto” recipe. Even net carbs would be 10g…
Hey Juanita, Thank you for bringing this to my attention! The nutritional macros were not correct and I have updated them to reflect appropriately. Blessings!
