Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

That’s right, chocolate mousse was my first love. My first low carb dessert love that is! I’ve always had a big sweet tooth growing up and when I first started shifting to a low carb lifestyle, I could not last a week without getting a sweet treat, while staying Keto. Back then, all I used was heavy cream and unsweetened cocoa, that’s it. But now I know better. This version is much tastier! This recipe has a few more ingredients than my original, all while staying keto-friendly and tasting x2 better.

Naturally Sweetened

I love this chocolate mousse not only because it’s rich and creamy, but also because it’s naturally sweetened without anyharmful chemicals. Choosing to follow a low carb diet has made me more aware of what I put into my body. Before I would just walk down the baking aisle and pick up a box of instant pudding and whip that up. But, in most of those, there are way too many ingredients that I no longer want to consumer, even (or especially) in the “sugar-fee” instant boxes. I love knowing what I’m putting into my body now. No more relying on conveniently packaged food products!

To make this a sugar-free dessert, you’ll need to use a natural sweetener. My favorite granulated sweeteners are Monk fruit (no after taste) or the Stevia packets.

How To Make Low Carb Chocolate Mousse

This can be quite the complicated one. You see, what we are doing here is adding all the ingredients together into one large bowl. Find your electric blender, set it to medium speed, and blend until your arms are tired, or for about 3 minutes. You’ll want to blend until your mousse is creamy and stiff peaks are formed. Pretty tough, huh? 😉

Seriously though, I love having a quick and easy recipe on hand when I want something sweet and chocolatey. I should point out that you can sweeten this yummy dessert more or less to fit your taste buds. If you want it more chocolatey, add a little more cocoa. If you want it sweeter, add more sweetener. Easy Peasey.

The Perfect Low Carb Chocolate Treat

I love how creamy this turned out, and it is so filling! Due to the heavy cream being a high-fat dairy, this basically acts as a fat bomb as well. This is a term you may be familiar with if you’re on the ketogenic diet. You can learn more about it here. To optimize the flavor even more, add some whipped cream on top (I know, whipped cream on your whipped cream) and garnish with some unsweetened cocoa nibs or even some Lilys chocolate chips. This would also be a great topping on a cake! I’m more of a buttercream girl but my mom loves a good whipped cream icing on a cake, so I may have to make this for her birthday!

We remade the recipe and added them in these super cute mason jars with ChocZero Bark (keto friendly chocolate) on top and it was the best decision ever! Our code “buttertogetherkitchen” gets you 10% off HERE.

  • OMGoodness, can I add on a star? This looks and sounds so yummy! I am having a hard time believing a rich, creamy, chocolaty dessert has only 1 carb per serving. I’ll eat more than 1 serving but still that is so low even with my diabetes I could have this.

    • I know right?! Thanks to the heavy cream used for this. But, oh so delicious.. Love us some guilt free dessert! 🙂

  • Love how the recipe is so easy! I love how you used some sweeteners so it is keto friendly and low-carb. 🙂 I think we all want some dessert, even when on keto. 😀

  • I adore recipes like these, that are really easy and simple to make and only use a few ingredients. I also love that the sugar intake is natural. Great job and definitely one to try out.

  • This recipe sounds super delicious!!! Oh my goodness I absolutely adore mousse and this recipe looks super easy to try!

  • Wow! This one’s a winner.This looks so delightful and tasty. I would love to try making this recipe. My boys would both probably DIG this!

  • I made this tonight and it was so good! Carbs came out a little higher, maybe cause I used swerve. We will definitely be making this again!

  • I made this in my Bullet blender cup. Stay with it or it WILL turn to chocolate butter! I did thin it out (after it was out of the bullet) with Almond milk. I split the mousse into 2 portions and added the almond milk to each as needed. This became more like a pudding. I put a little sprinkle of unsweetened coconut on top. WOW! So good. I could only eat a little because it is so rich. Going to try to freeze some to see it I can get ice cream like. Maybe spread it on parchment and freeze. To be continued.

  • FREEZE IT! I did this and it seriously tasted like simple buyers chocolate ice cream that I used to buy before going keto. It’s AMAZING! Thank you!

  • Absolutely Fantastic!! This was so easy and it is so good! I can’t believe it’s only 1 carb!! I did however replace the 1 tsp of vanilla with 1 tsp mint extract. Everyone loved it! I think we have a new family favorite! Thank you!

  • OMG, This is the fastest and best sweet treat I’ve had on keto. Even if I wasn’t doing keto I’d love it. My bf tried it and loved it, but no sharing, lol! I stretch it out to 3-4 servings, it is rich but so satisfying! I freeze 2 and one in the fridge in small containers. Then I get to eat the rest out of the bowl, lol! 🙂

  • A 5-star dessert for sure! Delicious and so quick and easy. I just made it and it really satisfies the sweet tooth. Because I didn’t have enough cream I had to cut the recipe in half, but it was still very satisfying. I also added about a teaspoon of espresso powder. Will definitely make again…and again…and!
