The Dish's Low-Carb Chocolate Mousse
1 1/2 cups full-fat coconut milk
1/2 lb bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 lb unsweetened chocolate, chopped
pinch of salt
unsweetened whipped cream, optional
chopped toasted almonds, optional

Place the coconut milk and the chocolate into a heat proof glass bowl and place into the microwave. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring often, until melted.

Place a metal bowl over a bowl filled with 2 quarts of ice and 1 cup of water. Add the chocolate mixture to the metal bowl and whisk until the mixture forms a smooth, shiny mousse, about 8 minutes.

Serve in espresso cups for the perfect portion. Top with whipped cream and toasted almonds if desired.
