Keto Chocolate Mousse for One


1/3 Cup Plain Heavy Whipping Cream

1/3 Cup Sour Cream

2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)

1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2 Dropper full of liquid stevia. (I like the English Toffee flavor.)

2 Packets powdered stevia.

Note: Experiment with your level of sweetness. I like my Keto desserts pretty sweet. 

Directions: Put the heavy cream in a mixing bowl and whip it with a hand mixer until thick.  Add the sour cream and blend, then add the other ingredients and blend until smooth. Spoon into a glass and chill at least one hour in the refrigerator.

Is Sugar Addiction a Real Thing?

Here are the criteria for addiction from the DSM-5:

  1. Taking the substance in larger amounts or for longer than you're meant to.
  2. Wanting to cut down or stop using the substance but not managing to.
  3. Spending a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from use of the substance.
  4. Cravings and urges to use the substance.
  5. Not managing to do what you should at work, home, or school because of substance use.
  6. Continuing to use, even when it causes problems in relationships.
  7. Giving up important social, occupational, or recreational activities because of substance use.
  8. Using substances again and again, even when it puts you in danger.
  9. Continuing to use, even when you know you have a physical or psychological problem that could have been caused or made worse by the substance.
  10. Needing more of the substance to get the effect you want (tolerance).
  11. Development of withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the substance.

In this video, I describe how sugar qualifies as an addictive substance, and I describe ways to break free.
