Keto Chocolate Mousse Recipe

This delicious keto chocolate mousse is the perfect dessert for those following a Low Carb Diet. With only three simple ingredients, this recipe is quick and easy to make, and will satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your health goals.

Ingredient for Keto Chocolate Mousse

One of the key ingredients in this recipe is heavy cream, which is also known as double cream or thickened cream. For the best results, it is recommended to let your cream sit at room temperature before using it. The other ingredient is chocolate, and any sugar-free chocolate can be used. Sugar-free chocolate chips work well in this recipe, but for those who prefer a rich and dark mousse, a keto chocolate bar with at least 78% cocoa content can also be used. Finally, vanilla extract is a must for any good keto mousse, as it enhances the flavor of the chocolate and cream.

To make this low-carb chocolate mousse, you don’t need any fancy kitchen gadgets or equipment. The recipe is straightforward, and the preparation time is minimal. Start by heating half of the cream in a small saucepan on low heat. Once it simmers, remove it from the heat. In a large mixing bowl, place your chocolate and pour the warm cream over it. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes to allow the cream to melt the chocolate chips. After a few minutes, gently whisk the mixture until it’s smooth and glossy. Add the remaining cream and vanilla extract, and gently fold them through. Refrigerate the mixture for 2-3 hours, then whip it using an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form.

When the keto mousse is ready, distribute it among eight 6-inch ramekins or scoop it out into bowls. You can top it with some keto whipped cream or drizzle it with some sugar-free chocolate syrup. The mousse can be prepared up to three days in advance, and you can store it in the mixing bowl during this time.

Using Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Mousse

It’s important to note that not all chocolate is keto-friendly, so it’s best to use Sugar Free chocolate chips or a keto chocolate bar with at least 78% cocoa content to keep the carb count low. Additionally, heavy cream should be used instead of milk or half-and-half to keep the recipe low in carbs.

Tips and Tricks

To ensure that the mousse has a smooth and creamy texture, be sure to let the heavy cream sit at room temperature before using it. This will prevent the sides of the pan from burning when heating the cream in the saucepan. Also, when beating the chilled mousse, be careful not to overmix as it may become too fluffy and lose its texture.
