As you read this, I am just waking up to the warmth and sunshine of a Florida morning. At least, we hope I will be waking up to warmth and sunshine, as this is our long awaited and much-deserved vacation. We are making the trip down to see my father and his wife on Longboat Key and then we will make our way back up to Orlando for a few fun days at Disney.

She’s supportive and friendly and strikes me as an all-around great person. So when I knew I’d need some friends to fill in while I was away, I asked her immediately. Please make sure you check out her great blog too!

How to Make Low Carb Peanut Butter Mousse
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream (about one cup whipped)
- 4 oz cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 7-10 drops stevia extract (equivalent to 1/3 cup, or to taste)
Whip your whipping cream to stiff peaks in a medium bowl with a hand mixer and set aside.
In another medium sized bowl, beat together cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla extract and stevia until smooth and creamy.
Add in whipped cream and mix on medium speed for about one minute or until the resulting mousse is light, fluffy and no lumps remain.
Serve peanut butter mousse immediately or store in refrigerator up to a week. Top with sugar free dark chocolate shavings if desired.
