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).
