<article> <section> <p align="justify">Sweet treats make a fantastic way to cap off your day. However, it can be a bit of a challenge to come up with one that fits a keto lifestyle. Thankfully, more and more companies are producing ingredients that work well with keto—such as high cacao content chocolate bars. With an intense flavor and few or no added sweeteners, these pack a punch! They’re great to nibble or to add to satisfying desserts like this one.</p> <h2>Mad for Mascarpone</h2> <p align="justify">Mascarpone is a soft, fresh Italian cheese similar to the more commonly known American cream cheese. However, it’s got a higher fat content—up to 70% butterfat. It also has a richer, slightly tangy taste. That’s because it’s made using lemon juice or tartaric acid, a byproduct of winemaking. This makes it friendly for vegetarians, whereas some other cheeses that use rennet are not. The high fat content makes mascarpone particularly great on a keto diet. If you can’t find it in your local grocery store, you can swap in softened, full-fat cream cheese for this recipe.</p> <h2>Feeling Fraiche</h2> <p align="justify">Thick, tangy, spoonable, and loaded with healthy fats, crème fraiche falls somewhere between sour cream and yogurt on the dairy spectrum. Infused with healthy bacterial cultures, it’s great for rebalancing your gut biome and improving digestive health. It also gives you a dose of ketosis-fueling butterfat. It adds body and flavor to recipes calling for similar ingredients like Greek yogurt, without the potential for sneaky hidden sweeteners. Can’t find it at your local store? Use full-fat sour cream instead.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Chocolate Brownie Mousse</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT5M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT30M">Cooking Time: 30 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 4 </span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 cup mascarpone cheese, at room temperature</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ cup crème fraiche or sour cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 ½ tablespoons granulated monk fruit sweetener</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 ounce 85% cacao dark chocolate bar, grated (about ¼ of a bar), divided</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ cup heavy cream</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ teaspoon vanilla extract</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li><p align="justify">In a large bowl, add the mascarpone, sour cream, cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of monk fruit sweetener, salt, and ⅔ of the grated chocolate.
