Now what isn’t to like about putting coffee, chocolate and cream together? These are beautiful little decadent low carb much custard treats for after dinner.
Low Carb Mocha Custards
What I love about low carb mocha custards, is the fact that there is no added sugar and made with simple ingredients. I absolutely love dark chocolate, creamy custard and a good coffee.
To combine my favourite flavours in a low-carb dessert is bliss. In addition they are low carb, no added sugar, wheat free, and gluten free. What flavour custard is your favourite?
Low carb mocha custards can be made quickly and served with a drop of brandy cream for a special adult only treat.
In a small saucepan, gently warm the cream, coffee and chocolate pieces together until almost simmering, but do not let it boil. Remove from the heat.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs yolks and sweetener together until pale and fluffy.
With the saucepan off the heat, whisk in slowly the egg yolk mixture. Stir constantly to stop the eggs from cooking or curdling.
Place the saucepan back on the low heat and whisk slowly until the mixture thickens.
Pour into tiny espresso cups and refrigerate until set.
Serve with whipped cream, grated chocolate, nuts, or chocolate covered coffee beans.You can also add a coffee liqueur such as Baileys, whiskey, Kahlua once the custard has thickened at the end of step 4. This will obviously increase the carbs and is not intended for children.
