Creamy and chocolatey, these lollies were made with whipped cream, giving a light, airy texture which makes me rethink how I have been making all the other lollies up until now. A simple addition of confectioner’s sweetener and melted 85% Lindt®, and you have a dreamy after-dinner treat. I marked this low carb and not strictly keto, due to the presence of soy in the Lindt®. As we know, soy should be avoided on the keto lifestyle. However, if you are simply living the ‘if it fits your macros’ lifestyle, these lollies will be a great addition to your summer creations. The lolly moulds I use are 100ml / 3.4 fl. oz capacity, but there is so much air whipped into the mixture, you will only use about 70g of mixture to fill each mould. This was how the macros were calculated. I also added a few drops of chocolate essence which really lifts the flavour to another level – you will love it! NOTE: If you choose not to freeze the mixture as lollies, enjoy these as a simple chocolate mousse served up in six ramekins. Unlike other chocolate mousse recipes, these do not require any ‘setting’ time in the fridge – they can be enjoyed immediately.

Chocolate Mousse Lollies (Low carb)
- Break up the chocolate and place in a small, non-stick pan.
- Gently melt the chocolate over low heat - this doesn't take long, less than a minute. Once melted, remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
- Pour the double cream into a large mixing bowl. Add the sweetener and use a hand mixer to whip to semi-soft peaks. Once the melted chocolate has cooled, pour into the cream.
- Mix until stiff peaks form.
- Fill the lolly moulds (100ml / 3.4 fl. oz) in capacity with the mixture. Remember, it is a stiff mixture that cannot be poured in, so use a small silicon spatula to fill.
- In between each scoop, knock the lolly mould down on the kitchen counter top to allow the mixture to settle, avoiding any large air pockets in the lolly.
- Click the lid/stick in place of each one, and place in the freezer overnight.
- Transfer the popsicles to the fridge 30 minutes before eating or simply run hot water on the outside of the mould to make it easier to slide out.
