Directions:
1. Soak 1 cup (150g) of hazelnuts overnight in cold water. The next day, rinse well and blend with 1.5 cups (355ml) of warm water until well ground up. Strain the hazelnut milk TWICE and reserve the nut grounds for later use. (Optionally, flavor the hazelnut milk with a dash of salt and a few drops of hazelnut-flavored stevia, see above list for the link).
2. Melt 1 cup (150g) chopped keto chocolate using 20-second bursts in the microwave, stirring well between each burst. Gradually whisk in 3/4 cup (180ml) of the warm hazelnut milk, then either whip with an electric mixer or pour it back into your bullet blender and blitz a few times to aerate. Place your glass cups slanted in a muffin tin (see video above) then pour in the chocolate mousse until just about to overflow. Keeping them slanted in the muffin tray, move to the freezer and chill for 30 minutes to an hour, or in the fridge for 4-6 hours.
3. To make the hazelnut panna cotta layer, first split the remaining 3/4 cup of hazelnut milk into two portions, keeping one portion chilled in the fridge. Soak 2 tsp of powdered gelatin in 2 Tbsp (30ml) of cold water and let sit for 5 minutes.
4. Mix together one portion of the hazelnut milk with 3 Tbsp (30g) of erythritol, then heat in the microwave until the sweetener has dissolved fully. Next, heat the soaked gelatin in the microwave using 15-second bursts until it has melted, then mix this into your hot hazelnut milk. Once the gelatin has dissolved into the milk, whisk in the remaining portion of chilled hazelnut milk and 1/2 cup of cold heavy whipping cream. Let this panna cotta cool to room temperature before pouring into your (upright) fully-chilled chocolate mousse cups, filling the remaining space but leaving a small space at the top. Chill the cups in the fridge for a few hours, or cheat by chilling in the freezer for 30 minutes and then transfering to the fridge for the last hour.
5. OPTIONALLY, toast 1/2 cup of the leftover hazelnut grounds in a frying pan, stirring constantly, and add 2 Tbsp (28g) salted butter. Once fully dried out and toasted golden-brown, let cool and use to top the chilled desserts, with an additional decoration of chopped keto chocolate.d shake off the excess

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
