Cooking TLC with Karen Rysavy   
Quick Delicious Mousse!      

This recipe from Volume I is one of the most popular (with both customers and myself). It's easy to vary, extremely decadent, will wow any non-lowcarber you serve it to, and it can be made several days ahead of time, making a good choice for busy Thanksgiving Day cooks.


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (240 ml)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (225 gm)
  • 2 Tb. unsweetened peanut butter (30 ml)
  • 1 Tb. unsweetened cocoa powder (15 ml)
  • 1 cup Splenda Granular (240 ml)
TRULY LOW CARB HEAVENLY MOUSSE Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature before beginning. This is easiest to make in a stand mixer. Beat heavy whipping cream until peaks form, and set aside. Be careful - If you over do this step, you'll make butter! Beat cream cheese by itself for several minutes until very smooth, scraping down sides of bowl and beaters as needed.

Add Splenda, peanut butter and cocoa powder. Mix very well, scraping down beaters and sides again. Incorporate one scoop of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture first, to lighten it. Then, by hand, using a wide rubber spatula, fold in remaining whipped cream. Do not over mix, it is okay if you can still see veins of white streaking the mix.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Try to eat just ONE, okay. (That's one serving, not one batch.)

NOTE: Carbs can be reduced by using only half as much cream, or substituting sugar free syrup for some of the SplendaT. By omitting the chocolate and peanut butter and substituting extracts or sugar free syrup, the flavor combinations are practically endless! Experiment and find your favorite.

I have had the best results using 3-4 Tb. (45 - 60 ml) of Sugar Free DaVinci Gourmet syrups. I like to make raspberry mousse and add ripe berries, or peach, with fresh diced peaches added. You could also add nuts, unsweetened coconut, etc.
