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.

HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

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.

      yes but taste it to make sure it is sweet enough for your taste and add more if you want. The texture may be a little gritty because of the granulated sweetener.

    I found it far too sweet using Nativa 1:1. A small taste was delicious, but eating it by the spoonful was definitely too sweet to enjoy. Going to try it again with half the amount of Nativa 🙂

    I used granulated Lankanto sweetener. The sugar didn’t dissolve so it tasted granulated. Anyone else have this issue?

      Yes, that’s why the recipe requires powdered sweetener

        I made this using the chocolate, and loved it! So did my husband. I feel it could have been a bit sweeter, I used 1/4 c. swerve, so next time I’ll use a bit more. It kept beautifully in the fridge for about 4 days and just got better! Today I made the recipe but instead of chocolate, I added strawberry freezer jam that I made with monkfruit sweetener. O.M.G! It’s beautiful and delicious!!! Thank you for the recipe!

    I’m lazy. Really lazy. Lol. So I kinda ignored the steps, dumped everything in one of my rocket blender cups and threw it on the blender. After maybe a minute, you could hear when it was done by the change in the sound. I took it off and it was PERFECT. Cold, thick, creamy, rich, chocolatey deliciousness. Oh. My. Mousse. I can’t lie. I ate half of it. And the other half is in the fridge for breakfast. ?. Thank you!!!!!!!

    Great recipe. Being on Keto I am sensative to sweetness and would use less sugar next time I make this but it depends on the sweetener you use as well which for me was different than what they used in this recipe. I also added chopped pecans for texture and added healthy fat and it was amazing!

    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.

        That’s a good question that I didn’t know the answer to. I found this:
        Pour the mousse into an airtight container. Leave 1 inch of headroom for expansion as the mousse freezes.

        Seal the container and affix a label to the front.

        Write the contents and expiration date, two months from the current date, on the label.

        Freeze the chocolate mousse for up to two months.

        Thaw the mousse in the refrigerator until you can spoon it out of the container.

    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.

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