Is Chocolate Mousse Keto?

Regular chocolate mousse may be keto-friendly, depending on the ingredients used. The traditional recipe is slightly more complicated than my version, and it requires whipping egg whites, then tempering them, and incorporating them into the chocolate mixture.

A serving of chocolate mousse has over 30 grams of net carbs, which is too high and may kick you out of ketosis.

Keto Chocolate Mousse Ingredients

  • Cream cheese – make sure to take the cream cheese out from the fridge for at least 30 minutes before using it to make sure it’s softened. Replace with mascarpone cheese for a more buttery texture and flavor.
  • Dark chocolate – I used 90% Lindt dark chocoalte and chopped it into small pieces to melt easier. You can use Lily’s chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate. Choose high-quality chocolate because the taste of the mousse depends on the chocolate flavor.
  • Heavy cream – Use high-fat heavy cream with more than 30% fat content because it whips up quicker.
  • Sweetener – I recommend using a keto powdered sweetener for this quick keto chocolate mousse as it incorporates easier with the other ingredients. Erythritol or monk fruit sweetener is perfect for this recipe. 
  • Cocoa powder – use unsweetened cocoa powder.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Mousse

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds or until completely smooth.
  2. Whip the heavy cream using a hand mixer until soft peaks start to form.
  3. Combine the softened cream cheese, melted dark chocolate, sweetener, and cocoa powder using an electric mixer.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream using a spatula.

Tips and Variations

  • Do not overbeat the heavy cream; otherwise, it may curdle and turn into butter.
  • Make sure to incorporate the whipped cream slowly to keep as much air as possible.
  • To prevent the chocolate from burning in the microwave, you can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate.
  • Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the mixture to intensify the chocolate flavor.

How To Store

It’s best to serve eggless chocolate mousse chilled for a few hours.

  • Fridge: Store leftover mousse refrigerated for 4-5 days. Cover each serving glass with plastic wrap to keep the mouse fresh.
  • Freezer: The texture changes drastically when defrosting because it contains dairy. But this recipe for quick keto chocolate mousse is quick to make the day before.

How To Serve Chocolate Mousse

These are some of my favorite toppings for this low carb chocolate mousse:

  • A dollop of keto whipped cream
  • Chocolate Shavings
  • Almonds Flakes
  • Fresh berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries.
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Fresh mint
  • Sugar-free sprinkles
