Keep Your Mousse Chocolatey and Your Blood Sugar Healthy

It is no secret that chocolate mousse is the ultimate favourite of many for satisfying their sugar cravings. There are several ingredients in chocolate mousse, such as refined flour, sugar, and chocolate. These ingredients are rich in simple carbohydrates (glucose and sucrose) along with free sugars, both of which break down easily causing a glucose spike. This makes chocolate mousse a high-GI food, ultimately leading to hyperglycaemia and is not advised when trying to control blood sugar levels.

Tips to consuming chocolate mousse without disturbing glucose levels
• Try almond flour or lupin flour instead of refined flour.
• You may replace sweet chocolate with cocoa.
• Consider adding minimal sugar or using stevia instead.
• You may add desiccated coconut to the mousse for fat. This slows down the breakdown of glucose in the bloodstream and lowers the spike.
• Try practising portion control as much as you can.

Adding dark chocolate to your chocolate mousse can make it healthier and more delicious. Remember, the darker the chocolate, the less sugar it has. Avocados, coconut milk, almonds, and fruits in your mousse will also boost its nutritional value.
