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.
