You probably know that I love easy keto desserts that are insanely delicious and require few ingredients.
I love to add some berries and mint leaves when they are in season for extra taste and freshness.
Low carb & keto chocolate mousse Ingredients
To make this keto chocolate mousse, you’ll need some low carb ingredients and follow a few instructions. Trust me – it’s not hard to make this no-bake recipe that’s very versatile. It’s perfect to be used as a keto cupcakes frosting or inside some delicious layers of low carb cake.
No matter how you choose to use this recipe, it’s perfect for family gatherings. Everyone will love it. Here are the main ingredients you’ll need:
- Cocoa Powder – Quality of the ingredients matters because you need a dark and rich cocoa powder for the best flavors. Dutch-Process cocoa powder is my recommendation because it has a deeper chocolate flavor.
- Heavy Cream – If you are looking for a dairy-free keto dessert you can replace the heavy cream with high-fat coconut milk and follow the same steps.
- Sweetener – To sweeten the keto chocolate mousse you can use your favorite sweetener: xylitol*, erythritol or monk fruit.
If paleo use coconut sugar, maple syrup or raw honey, I don’t like to use stevia when there’s chocolate involved because I fell that it accentuates the aftertaste.
* Xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs, so if you are puppy lover be very careful when using it.
