Banting Chocolate Mud!

Last Sunday, everyone was having dessert except me! I decided to make myself something with Lindt dark chocolate. I’d seen something online and experimented with it. This is how it turned out.


  • Lindt 70% (or 85% if you prefer) – you need 2 squares per person
  • 1/3 cup cream per person

Lindt 70


I took two squares of the chocolate and quartered it into a small ramekin bowl.

Quarter 2 squaresMicrowave it for 1 minute, until melted…

One minute in the microwaveWhip 1/3 cup of cream until thick….

One third cup creamGradually stir it into the chocolate – reserve a little for serving…

Whip the cream and pour into the chocMix it well and you can serve it in the same ramekin bowl with a spoon of cream…

Serve with a blob of creamIt is rich and delicious! Just perfect as a Banting dessert. For a fantastic alternative, use the flavoured chocolate Lindt – orange or mint, or if you want some zing, chilli. But just remember that the flavoured Lindt has higher carbohydrate content.

Carb count:

  • Using 2 squares 70% Lindt: 4g per serving
  • Using 2 squares flavoured Lindt:  6.5g per serving
  • Using 2 squares Nestle Aero: 9g per serving.

The problem comes in trying to restrict yourself to one serving! 😉

The 70% Lindt is quite strong, so you could get away with using only 1 square and reducing the carbs to about 3g per serving.

It’s worth experimenting with. It’s delicious!

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Keep the smile going!

God bless you!

In His Grip,
