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.

No, it’s not paleo suitable but it’s easy to transform it into a dairy-free dessert. Just use chilled coconut milk instead of the heavy cream. Feel free to use any paleo sweetener you like.

Instructions

  • Prepare the gelatin in a small bowl. Add the powder and mix it with the cold water. After one minute add the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is dissolved and it looks clear. Let it cool.
  • Meanwhile, combine in a medium bowl the cocoa powder and the low carb sweetener.
  • Add the whipping cream and vanilla extract. Beat the mixture at medium speed with a mixer. Scrape the bowl from time to time and continue mixing until it looks fluffy.
  • Mix again until the gelatin is completely incorporated.
  • Divide the keto mousse into serving glasses, top it with whipped cream and sugar- free chocolate shavings.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. It tastes incredible if you let the low carb chocolate mousse in the refrigerator overnight.

Notes

* Use coconut milk solids instead of the heavy whipping cream for a dairy-free chocolate mousse.
