Easy Keto Chocolate Mousse Recipe. We love this low carb chocolate mousse because it’s super easy to make and has minimal ingredients! PLUS is doesn’t use a sugar free pudding mix like other low carb dessert recipes.
Rich and creamy with chocolatey notes, this Keto Chocolate Mousse recipe is as elegant as it is delicious! It’s a beautiful crowd-pleasing dessert to entertain with, or keep it stashed in the fridge for when a sweet tooth strikes.
This low carb chocolate mousse is a perfect for an easy weeknight dessert. You can whip up a batch on Monday night and eat it for dessert each night. It’s insanely quick to make and doesn’t need any fancy equipment.

Keto Chocolate Mousse Ingredients
We chose to go a different route than other low carb mousse recipes. Most of them use a box of sugar free pudding, but instead we made ours completely from scratch!
- heavy whipping cream
- unsalted butter
- So Nourished Powdered Erythritol
- stevia glycerite
- pure vanilla extract
- brewed cooled coffee, or coffee extract
- cocoa powder
- whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks
How to Make Easy Keto Chocolate Mousse
First, add the cream, butter, So Nourished Granular Erythritol, stevia glycerite, and salt to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Next bring to a boil, and then turn the heat down so it doesn’t boil over and cook until slightly thickened, about 7 to 8 minutes, whisking occasionally.
Then remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla, coffee, and cocoa powder. Cool to room temperature. Beat about 1 cup of the whipped cream into the cooled cocoa mixture.
After that, use a rubber spatula to fold in the rest of the whipped cream 1/4 at a time until well blended. Serve chilled. Store covered in the fridge for up to 10 days.
If you noticed, you’ll see that we actually used a new sweetener for this easy keto chocolate mousse recipe. So Nourish reached out to us to give their new keto sweeteners a try!
In addition to the powdered erythritol that we used in this low carb chocolate mousse recipe, So Nourished also has a few more low carb sweeteners.
So Nourished Low Carb Sweeteners
- Granular Erythritol
- Powdered Erythritol
- Granular Monk Fruit Erythritol
- Powdered Monk Fruit Erythritol
So far we’ve only tried using the powdered erythritol in a recipe, but we’re super excited to try the rest! They have the first powdered monk fruit blend in bulk that we’ve seen and we can’t wait to try it in more keto recipes!
