This light whipped dessert is so rich and creamy that you will want to eat it every day. Easy keto chocolate mousse is the perfect snack!
Whenever you really want something sweet or have a chocolate craving that just won’t go away, this is the perfect recipe to prepare.
Keto Chocolate Dessert
I don’t know about you, but when I start craving desserts and sweets, I don’t want to wait for something to bake. I like having things on hand that I can make in less than 10 minutes.
This chocolate mousse tastes incredibly light! In fact, it kind of reminds me of a whipped cream topping. It has a really rich chocolate flavor – you will want to eat it slowly, savoring every bite.
Easy Low-Carb Mousse
This is a kid-friendly dessert and believe me – when you sit down to enjoy a little bowl of it, your kids are going to ask for some too. I suggest making a double batch and storing it in the refrigerator.
If you do store it in the fridge, keep it in an airtight container with a lid. It will stay fresh for about a week.
Mousse With Whipping Cream
This dessert has about 7 grams net carbs in each serving. I used a combination of cream cheese and heavy whipping cream which gives it the perfect texture. It’s both creamy and fluffy at the same time.
When you sweeten in, use a confectioner’s sugar substitute – my favorite is Swerve. A granular sweetener will alter the texture too much and a liquid sweetener won’t thicken it like it needs.
The almond extract is optional, but I suggest you use it. I think it rounds out the flavor of the cocoa powder giving it a nuttier taste.
10-Minute Keto Dessert
One of my favorite things about this dessert is that it only takes 10 minutes to make! No chilling, no cooking, it’s so easy. An electric mixer or a stand mixer will make the entire process a lot faster.
It’s tough to mix this by hand with a whisk – but not impossible.
Take this dessert to the next level – add some toppings. Some of my favorite low-carb toppings for mousse are:
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Chopped Nuts
- Sugar-free chocolate shavings
Keto Dessert For Two
This recipe makes the perfect amount for two servings. Serve the mousse in some glass ramekins or some decorative cups and it’s perfect for special occasions like Valentine’s Day or anniversaries.
You can also use this recipe as a dessert topping for low-carb cupcakes or waffles. Or, dip some apples in it! The options are endless.
Since this is a no-bake recipe, you can literally mix all the ingredients together as a last-minute dessert.
