What’s A Keto Avocado Chocolate Mousse?
A Keto Avocado Chocolate Mousse is a low-carb version of the classic chocolate mousse.
It keeps the same fluffy mousse texture but without all the carbs brought by the white sugar that it always added to classic mousse recipes.
This dessert is low in carbs and high in taste and texture.
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
This keto avocado mousse is amazing because it tastes like a classic chocolate mousse, but it’s also:
- 4 Ingredients
- Ready In Under 10 Minutes
How To Make Keto Avocado Chocolate Mousse
Making this recipe is very easy as it only takes a few minutes and 4 ingredients.
- Avocado – you need to pick a fresh, ripe avocado. To know if your avocado is ready, it should be slightly soft to the touch, and removing the stem should reveal a green flesh. Sometimes, despite looking perfect, the flesh of avocados can have a very bitter or earthy taste, in particular at the end of the season. Make sure to taste the flesh before adding the other ingredients.
- Cocoa Powder – Cocoa powder is what brings the delicious chocolate taste and color to this recipe. Make sure to pick unsweetened cocoa powder to keep the added sugar low.
- Sweetener – the best option for this is to use a sugar-free crystal sweetener such as erythritol or allulose. You can also use non-sugar-free options if you are not on a keto diet such as dates or maple syrup.
- Coconut Cream – Coconut cream is a delicious ingredient that brings a ton of creaminess to the recipe.
Making The Keto Chocolate Mousse
This is a perfect keto dessert since avocado is a keto-approved vegetable.
In order to keep the pudding sugar-free, add two tablespoons of sugar-free crystal sweetener – swerve or monk fruit sugar blend.
The texture is pretty much the same as the recipe using dates. But, honestly, I love the taste of the sugar-free one!
It’s silky smooth and creamy, less dense than the one with dates. Plus, there are only 3.8 grams of net carbs per serving, and you save 100 kcal! Amazing, right?
That’s the recipe I make for my husband and kids. I am using Medjool dates. They are softer and blend very well without soaking time.
The texture of the chocolate mousse using dates is slightly thicker, more like a cream. It is delicious but more fulfilling too. I recommend serving this one in smaller serves – maybe for six people instead of 4.
It will make very small portions, but it’s enough, I think. The kids love to pair this mousse with fresh raspberries. It’s a great combo if you love fruits and chocolate.
This version with dates will get super dense if you store it in the fridge for a few hours. It is absolutely amazing!
You can store these keto avocado chocolate mousses for up to 2 to 3 days in the fridge.
Wrap each ramekin with plastic wrap to prevent the top from drying out.
It’s also possible to freeze the mousse and you can even eat it frosty, it has a texture similar to a sorbet.

Hi, what a wonderful recipe. I look forward to trying it. Is the calorie count of 274.5 for each ramekin or the entire recipe? Do you have a lower calorie substitute for the coconut cream? Thank you.
Carton coconut milk is low calorie and will work but the mousse won’t be as creamy and thick. Nutrition panel is for one serving, yield appears on top of the recipe card. Enjoy!
First… OMGOODNESS!! This recipe was a family hit (and the hubs has a major sweet tooth so we are winning!)
I would like to clarify something tho… one part of your recipe says for keto version to add 2tbs of sweetener but then is says 1/4 cup toward the end to keep it at 3.6 net carbs (I used monkfruit). Which is it? Help! 😊
Ummmmm this recipe is PHENOMENAL! I didn’t have coconut cream so used heavy cream instead. Followed the rest of the recipe exact and it came out incredible. Super rich and filling. I can’t believe this has avocado in it! Can’t taste it at all. Thank you!
What can I use instead of coconut cream? I have cashew, almond or dairy milk.
It will be very liquid and runny if you use milk. I won’t recommend that option. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine
thank you for your wonderful recipes, I love them. but I have a problem with the ingredients, would you please add the value in grams?
Yes sure, teaspoon and tablespoon are the same in Europe so you can use the one you have. I converted the cup in ml or gram when need. You need a medium size avocado. Enjoy and take care, XOXO Carine.
Hi there! How long will this keep in the fridge? I am eager to try it but I will be the only one eating it, so if it made 4 servings would they last 4 days? Thanks!!
I would say 3 days for sure! Otherwise, I freeze leftover in popsicle mold to make keto ice block 🙂 Enjoy! XOXO Carine
Je suis Française aussi (mais j’habite en Californie). Top ces recettes low-carb. Ma maman (qui vit en France du coup) vient de découvrir qu’elle est pré-diabétique, et elle a éliminé les aliments à fort indice glycémique, mais la petite note sucrée de la fin de repas lui manque, alors on cherche des recettes de desserts pour qu’elle puisse également profiter de la vie cet été. Il faudrait donc qu’on teste cette petite mousse avo-choco! 😀
Bonjour et bienvenue sur le blog! Quelle bonheur d’avoir une francaise qui me lit. Ma maman habite en france et elle est diabetique depuis 6 ans. Elle teste tout mes desserts depuis la bas donc je pense que ta maman devrait pouvoir les realiser facilement. Je te recommande de lui offrir un lot de cup mesureuses car mes recettes ne sont pas toutes en grammes. Avec ca elle reussiras les recettes a coup sur. Hate de lire le prochain commentaires. A tres vite, Carine.
Can this be made using carob powder instead of cocoa powder?
Sure! Enjoy the mousse, XOXO Carine.
Is this okay to make the day before?
Absolutely! Store in the fridge in an airtight container. You can also store them directly in serving ramekin/jar but cover with plastic wrap to avoid the top to dry out. Enjoy the mousse. XOXO Carine.
Im confused. The notes say the keto version serves 6. However the Nutritional Information showa 4 servings. Please advise as to how many servings are used in the Nutritional Information calculation. Thank You!
The nutrition panel, both are showing data for 4 serving. Sorry if the little note on top of the nutrition panel was wrong, it is well 4 serving! Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.
Avocados are different sizes. What size to use? Sorry about the small print…just happened and I am not happy. Tried to fix it but would not work.
I mentioned 1/2 cup of mashed avocado in the recipe. I am not sure why you are not seeing it on your recipe carb tho. This is a no fail recipe, the only difference you can see if you have slightly more avocado is a more liquid texture and less sweet taste that are easy to balance with stevia drops. Hope this helps. XOXO Carine.
Just tried this recipe, added a bit more organic cocoa. Love, love, love it!
Oh thank you ! I am so happy to read your comment. Thanks for trying my recipes. XOXO Carine.
nice and creamy, I reduced the cocoa to 2 tablespoons and was enough to me. did not expect the outcome to be so nice, was approved by the whole family.. thanks for the recipe.
Thanks so much for this lovely comment. I am very happy that you are trying my recipes and love them. This mousse is very surprising indeed! So glad all your family enjoy the treat. XOXO Carine.
Hi! I have dried dates, will that work instead of fresh?
Sure, make sure you soak them into hot water 3-5 minutes, squeeze extra water and use in the food processor. Soaking dried dates make them softer and creamy. It will be delicious this way too. Enjoy the recipe. Have a lovely time on the blog. XOXO Carine.
Great recipe. Also easy and quick. With some berries makes an impressive desert
Berries ! yummy addition 🙂 I will give this a go next time. Thanks for testing my recipes, enjoy the blog! XOXO Carine
Any chance I could use stevia? Thats
my sweetener of choice. If so, how
would I adjust recipe?
Sure you can ! I would recommend using liquid stevia it will blend better than powder. Simply follow the recipe without adding the swerve sweetener. Starts with drops of liquid stevia and taste. Then adjust one drop at a time, give a good stir between to make sure it is perfectly incorporated to the mousse. Enjoy the recipe my friend! XOXO Carine.
Thanks so much for your wonderful receipt I will also try it you are sure wonderful woman
Thank to you for trying them and being here with me. XOXO Carine.
