Keto Chocolate Mousse

Keto Chocolate Mousse


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol or stevia (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: whipped cream, shaved dark chocolate, berries


  1. Chill Equipment:
    • Place a mixing bowl and beaters or whisk attachment in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes to chill.
  2. Whip the Cream:
    • Take the chilled mixing bowl and beaters/whisk attachment. Pour the heavy whipping cream into the bowl.
    • Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, whip the cream on medium-high speed until it thickens and forms soft peaks. Be cautious not to overwhip.
  3. Add Cocoa and Sweetener:
    • Gently sift the unsweetened cocoa powder into the whipped cream to avoid lumps.
    • Add the powdered erythritol or stevia, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Fold and Mix:
    • Using a spatula, carefully fold and mix the cocoa powder, sweetener, vanilla extract, and salt into the whipped cream. Ensure the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  5. Taste and Adjust:
    • Taste the mousse and adjust the sweetness by adding more powdered sweetener if necessary.
  6. Chill and Set:
    • Divide the chocolate mousse mixture into serving glasses or bowls.
    • Cover each serving with plastic wrap or place a lid on top.
    • Refrigerate the mousse for at least 2-3 hours to allow it to set and develop its flavors.
  7. Serve and Garnish:
    • Once the mousse is set, you can top it with a dollop of whipped cream, some shaved dark chocolate, or a few fresh berries.
