Is Classic Chocolate Mousse Keto?

No, a classic chocolate mousse recipe is not keto-friendly because it contains added sugar.

Sugar is, of course, not a keto-friendly sweetener, and therefore, you can’t eat a traditional chocolate mousse on a keto diet.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Mousse

There are many ways to make an easy keto chocolate mousse at home.

You can make a chocolate avocado mousse to keep it dairy-free, or try this cream cheese chocolate mousse recipe!

Ingredients

All you need to make this light and fluffy mousse are:

  • Softened cream cheese – take it out from the fridge at least 30 -45 minutes before making the recipe. This softens the cream cheese block and makes it easier to beat until a creamy consistency. Cream cheese is keto-friendly.
  • Heavy cream or heavy whipping cream – you will use some to beat cream cheese and the remaining amount to whip into whipped cream. Learn more about keto-friendly dairy products.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Powdered erythritol – or any keto powdered sweetener you love, like powdered erythritol or powdered allulose.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt – optional, but it brings out the chocolate flavor.

Beating The Cream Cheese

First, in a large mixing bowl, add cream cheese, vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup of heavy cream.

Beat on low speed at first, then increase to medium-high speed to form a creamy consistent batter

Adding Powdered Ingredients

Stop the beater, add powdered erythritol, unsweetened cocoa powder, and salt.

Beat again at low speed at first to prevent the powders from bursting out of the mixing bowl.

Keep beating until the ingredients are well combined, and the mixture is thick.

Then, set aside at room temperature while you whip the heavy cream.

Whipping The Heavy Cream

In another large clean bowl, preferably cold, add heavy cream and whip until stiff peaks form.

It takes about 1-2 minutes max to turn heavy cream into a fluffy whipped cream.

Don’t overbeat the cream, or it can become very dense and make the mousse less fluffy.

Folding In The Whipped Cream

Now, use a spatula to gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese chocolate mixture.

The more gentle you fold in the whipped cream, the fluffier the mousse will be.

Transferring To Single-Serve Containers

The best way to enjoy a fluffy and creamy chocolate mousse is to split the batch into small containers before refrigerating.

Also, don’t pack the mousse in the container. Fill the container gently to add air and keep the mixture as light and fluffy as possible.

Refrigerating

Refrigerate the mousse for 1 hour to enjoy the best flavor and texture of this cream cheese chocolate mousse keto recipe.
