One of my favorite desserts my grandmother used to make reminds me of this Keto/Low Carb Chocolate mousse. I love how recipes can evoke memories that are so special. My grandmother always let me get right in the kitchen with her and help her cook. No matter what I threw together, she would always taste it and act like it was the very best food she had ever put into her mouth. My love for cooking started early in that tiny kitchen, and it has continued to grow ever since. I saw both of my grandmothers and my mother serve our family through wonderful homemade southern foods. Some of my most vivid childhood memories originate in the kitchen or around a table with family. Now that I am all grown up with kids of my own, I love having my kids in the kitchen with me. Gathering together as a family to prepare meals and enjoy them together creates memories and traditions that are so meaningful. As we enjoyed this Keto/Low Carb Chocolate Mousse, I couldn’t help but think about Sunday afternoon meals that we enjoyed around the table laughing and sharing with those we loved when I was growing up. Just because we are following a keto/low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a keto approved sweet treat now and then. I challenge you to gather your family together and enjoy the blessings in your life.
