The keto chocolate mousse recipe is a very simple and quick recipe for extremely delicious double-chocolate mousse. Ready in minutes! Highly addictive.
Chocolate is probably the most loved and the most desirable type of dessert on earth. The best thing about chocolate is that you can really have a lot of it (and in various different forms) on a keto diet with little or no guilt. There are literally thousands of recipes that will let you enjoy the wonderful chocolate taste without unnecessarily consuming sugar and carbs.
Today, I’m showing you one of my favorites. What am I talking about? Keto chocolate mousse with double chocolate taste and triple pleasure, of course. I’m a huge fan of chocolate so I tweaked the recipe in such a way that it tastes really awesome, has few carbs and isn’t a (huge) fat bomb.
My keto chocolate mousse looks exactly like regular chocolate mousse dessert you can order at restaurants or buy in cake shops. The only difference is that it tastes so much better, has few carbs and absolutely no sugar. What’s more, one serving has only 630 kcal and is a perfect keto fat bomb (63 g of fat).
Doesn’t my keto chocolate mousse look awesome? I know it does! The best news is that you can enjoy it in a few minutes from now.
Ingredients For Garnish (Optional But Recommended)
20 g of sugar free chocolate. You can also use dark chocolate with at least 75% of cacao powder. Check the label and make sure there is no added sugar or there is very little of it (a few grams at the most). I recommend choosing the chocolate sweetened with natural sweeteners only (either stevia or erythritol). Beware of sugar-free chocolate sweetened with maltitol. This is not a keto-friendly option.
Instructions (Keto Chocolate Mousse Base)
Pour heavy whipping cream into a larger bowl. I poured both types of cream and simply blended them together. PRACTICAL TIP:
For 500 ml of heavy whipping cream you need a larger bowl so that some (or most) of the cream doesn’t go out of the bowl once you start blending. I’m speaking from my own experience.
Beat the cream until it becomes solid and thick. The thicker it is, the better the end result will be.
Set aside 3-4 tablespoons of whipped cream (before adding cocoa powder) if you want to put it on top for extra white decoration later. Feel free to skip this step if you don’t want your chocolate mousse to be double color. PRACTICAL TIP:
Don’t add sweeteners to the white part of your chocolate mousse topping. This will add a nice diversity of taste once you combine it with the sweet chocolate part.
Add cocoa powder, stevia and vanilla extract to the whipped cream. Blend until smooth. PRACTICAL TIP:
Don’t add all of the ingredients at once because the cream may collapse (especially if you add too much erythritol). It may also happen if you totally go overboard with stevia. Add a few drops at a time, blend and taste if it’s sweet enough.
Blend the cream once again until it has a uniform chocolate color. Add more cocoa powder if you want your mousse to be darker and more chocolate. PRACTICAL TIP:
Add the ingredients slowly and taste your mousse until it is as sweet and as chocolate as you want. You can also mix the final version with a tablespoon.
Put your keto chocolate mousse into smaller bowls or glasses. PRACTICAL TIP:
If you opt for the version without topping, you can eat it right away or let it rest for about an hour in the fridge. This will make your keto chocolate mousse even denser and tastier.
Instructions (Chocolate Topping)
If you want the double-color version, add a tablespoon of whipped white cream on top of the ready chocolate mousse. This will make it look even more spectacular.
If you want to add another level of the chocolate taste, grate the sugar-free chocolate and sprinkle your mousse top with it.
Bon appetit! PRACTICAL TIP:
You can eat your keto chocolate mousse right away (which you will probably do). You can also let it sit in the fridge for an hour (or even longer) so that it gets even more dense and delicious. Want ice-cream? Let your keto chocolate mousse rest in the freezer for 1-2 hours.
