Many of my friends are trying keto diet. I saw they kept making cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza base and many more ingredients are substituted with cauliflower.
But haven’t seen anyone making dessert out of it. So i was surfing and come across this fantastic blog call ‘Low carb yum’ and saw this fabulous recipe of chocolate mousse made out of cauliflower..
I was so not convinced that it would taste good. But this recipe was so good that I had to give it a shot. But of course I won’t spoil my whole head of cauliflower for this recipe, which I thought would be total failure. So I decided to make just two servings, incase no one eats then the loss won’t be much.
I gathered all the ingredients that was needed and quietly started prepping it, as I did not wanted my husband and daughter Amal to know that the base of this chocolate mousse is cauliflower, if they know it I was sure the would not even touch it forget tasting..
And my guinea pig was my daughter Amal post lunch I handed over the bowl of mousse to her and she wiped it clean. I asked her was it ok and she casually replied it was good😃
When I mentioned it to her that it had cauliflower she was so surprised.
I totally recommend this recipe.. I am sure it will satisfy your sweet cravings without much damage.
