keto chocolate mousse

When I make keto desserts, I like them to be super easy with only a few ingredients.  Recipes like my Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies, butter cookie fat bombs, and Keto Mug Cake.  This Keto Chocolate Mousse ticks all of those boxes, plus it is incredibly delicious.

Most chocolate mousse recipes involve melting chocolate, separating eggs and beating egg whites, and chilling for hours in the fridge.  I avoided all of that with this easy recipe!

This recipe is a denser chocolate mouse (my favorite) because it doesn’t incorporate beaten egg whites.  It would be easy to make this lighter, though, by incorporating 3 egg whites beaten to stiff peaks.


What we need to make this recipe is heavy cream, sweetener, sifted cocoa powder, and vanilla.

The first step in making this delicious keto dessert is whisking the heavy cream until it gets nice and thick.  It’s usually ready when you start to see ribbons form in the cream.  You can whisk the cream by hand or you can use a stand mixer, or even a hand mixer.

Now we are going to add in the sweetener, sifted cocoa powder, and the vanilla and whisk a little more until everything is all combined.

    This was pretty good. I used liquid Stevia. There is an after taste because of the Stevia. I don’t know what other sugar substitute would work better, so I guess I will stick with the Stevia. I have xylitol. Why is there no sweetener that tastes as good as the real thing. I just love sugar.

    Super easy to make and the consistency Ian great but I’m questioning the amount of salt because that’s all I’m tasting. Next time I will add much less.

    The mousse was delicious. I used some almond extract too maybe 1/2 tsp. With crushed almonds on top.

    I made this tonight and it’s fantastic! I looked at the calorie content and the carbs and was expecting this to be one of those low carb desserts where you get about a quarter of a cup per serving and end up eating the whole thing yourself but it really is a generous portion when divided four ways.

    Hi! This sounds delicious! I am in Australia and use Natvia sweetener, would it be the same amount as the brand you mentioned?

      I am not sure but if it is a 1 for 1 replacement to sugar and it’s powdered, then it should work fine
