This Keto Avocado Chocolate Mousse is an easy, paleo, healthy 4-ingredient sugar-free dessert recipe with a delicious fudgy chocolate texture. It’s also vegan, low carb (3.8 grams net carbs per serving), and gluten-free.

Keto Avocado chocolate mousse

My favorite way to make this keto avocado chocolate mousse is using my sugar-free crystal sweetener – I love Swerve or Monk fruit sugar.

When you have been pre-diabetic, trust me, you are always worried about going back to sugar.

But I have got a family that doesn’t enjoy the sugar-free sweetener as much as I do. Monk fruit sugar or erythritol is good for you. It’s natural, but some people don’t appreciate their taste at first.

It could have a slightly fresh, minty aftertaste. After 5 years of using it, I don’t notice this anymore, but well, my husband and the kids usually prefer a refined sugar dessert.

So, that’s why today I tested this recipe in two ways. 

Option 1- 100% Sugar-free Avocado chocolate mousse (green ramekin pictures).

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?

Option 2- 100% Refined Sugar-free Avocado chocolate mousse (white ramekin).

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!

Below I provided both nutrition panels to cater to any diet. Feel free to try the recipe that makes you feel good and happy.

As you can see in these two pictures, the texture of the sugar-free chocolate mousse (green ramekin) is very similar to the one using dates (white ramekin).

  • In a blender, scoop out the ripe avocado flesh, unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar-free crystal sweetener (or pitted dates), canned coconut cream, and vanilla extract.
  • Blend until smooth - about 1 minute on high speed.
  • Transfer the chocolate mousse into ramekins and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The longer it stays in the fridge, the creamier it will be.
  • Serve with chocolate flakes or unsweetened desiccated coconut. 
Storage: You can store these avocado chocolate mousses for up to 2 days in the fridge. Simply wrap each ramekin with plastic wrap to prevent the top from drying out.
Serving size: this recipe is very rich and fulfilling. I highly recommend serving it in 6 mini ramekins (half the size as the one in the picture).

    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!

    • 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

  3. Hi 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.

  4. 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

  5. Hello 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.

    • 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

    • 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.

    • 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?
    Thank you

    • 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.
