Low carb, healthy fat, Chocolate mousse from WTF? Recipes
This WTF? team favourite is dangerously good, with a truly restaurant-quality texture and taste. For those who love the classic dark chocolate and orange flavour, we recommend adding orange zest to the mix. Whatever you do, it will be hard to stop at one helping – so maybe save this for a really special occasion!

Energy 254 Cal
50g dark chocolate (85% cocoa or higher)
⅓ cup cream
2 egg yolks
½ cup cream
10g dark chocolate (85% cocoa or higher),
shaved into curls
2 Tbsp berries (defrosted, if frozen)
Add the finely grated zest of ½–1 orange
Add a dash of vanilla
1. Chop the chocolate into smallish chunks and place in a heat-proof bowl. Set a metal sieve over the bowl and keep to one side. Place the first measure of cream (⅓ cup) and any additional flavours in a small heavy-based pot and bring slowly to the boil over a medium heat. Watch it carefully, as cream often boils over suddenly.
2. When the cream is boiling, take it off the heat, immediately whisk in the egg yolks and pour the hot cream mix through the sieve into the chocolate. Cover with a plate and allow to melt for 5 minutes before whisking until smooth and incorporated. Allow the chocolate mixture to cool.
3. Whip the second measure of cream (½ cup), add to the cooled chocolate mixture and fold it through. Divide the mixture between small serving dishes or glasses, cover and place in the fridge to set.
4. Serve with the chocolate curls and berries.
What the Fat? Recipes is the latest offering from the WTF? team: Professor Grant Schofield, whole-food dietitian Caryn Zinn and Michelin-trained chef Craig Rodger. LCHF typically stands for Low-Carb, High-Fat, but WTF? have renamed it Low-Carb, Healthy-Fat, to better reflect what it’s all about. While they suggest we eat more fat, the emphasis is on healthy sources of fat. LCHF is not a ‘diet’, but a way of life. This book teaches you all you need to know to reap the benefits of the LCHF lifestyle. What the Fat? Recipes, RRP$49.95, Blackwell & Ruth. Buy online here: BUY THE BOOK
