Beyond Gorgeous

Low Glycemic Chocolate Mousse

A big party was coming up.  I knew that the smart thing to do is plan ahead. If everyone else is eating high glycemic cake and with mounds of ice cream, I had better make provision for my runaway sweet tooth.

Time to try that chocolate mousse recipe I found on Pinterest. It’s made with coconut milk and sugar substitute.  This recipe has the earmarks of a winner.  The main component is coconut milk, which is nutrient dense but is low/moderate on the glycemic index.  The cocoa powder is very low glycemic and the alternative sweetener I used has an index number of zero.  And it is easy to make.  It also makes a great low-glycemic, sugar-free frosting.

So what went wrong with my plan?  It was so good I ate the whole thing by myself in one sitting.  Not so smart.

Here is the recipe, which I am keeping in my “winner” file. However, remember that eating too much of it makes it high glycemic and high calorie.  So don’t do that!

 Chocolate Mousse 


1 can coconut milk

1/4 cup plus 1 T cocoa powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

sweetener to taste

Put the coconut milk in a bowl and leave it uncovered in the refrigerator overnight.  It should get very thick.  You may have to drain off any watery liquid.  Whip in cocoa, vanilla, and sweetener and divide into four serving dishes or use it to frost cupcakes.

Thank you to for the recipe and the picture.

Eating to live and living for Christ,

I believe everything said made a bunch of sense.
However, what about this? what if you added a little content?

I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title that makes people
want more? I mean Low Glycemic Chocolate Mousse – Beyond Gorgeous is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s
front page and note how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers
excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a
little livelier.

After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is

Is there a means you can remove me from that service?

Appreciate it!

Recipe Day -- Good-For-You Chocolate Cake
I looked at the recipe in disbelief.  NINE eggs? Surely that was a misprint.  Only 3/4 cup flour in a cake?  Not likely.  As I studied about coconut flour, though, I saw that, yes, it does take that many eggs to make a successful cake with this healthy type of flour, and it takes a much smaller
