This rich, creamy Keto Chocolate Mousse recipe is ready to devour in about 10 minutes! It feels very fancy and decadent, but has just 3 net carbs per serving and couldn’t be simpler to make.
I couldn’t survive my low carb life if it didn’t include a bit of CHOCOLATE! I bet many of you can relate. 😉
While I often just keep it simple and reach for something like a Lily’s chocolate bar (the salted caramel one is my absolute fav), I also love to get in the kitchen and whip up a dessert that I can share with my family.
Yes, they all eat and love our keto desserts too! I’m pretty picky about that ‘sweetener aftertaste’ so I do my best to eliminate it altogether. Keep reading for how I do that and what products I use!
I just know you’ll love this easy chocolate mousse recipe. Nothing better than a 10 minute dessert!

Cream Cheese – The rich, tangy flavor of the cream cheese helps counteract any aftertaste you might normally detect from the low carb sweetener. We have the best success with eliminating any aftertaste from the sweetener when we add cream cheese. It’s magic.
Powdered Sweetener – I use and love Lakanto Sweeteners. They’re a mix of monkfruit and erythritol, which are both natural sweeteners. Lakanto is a ZERO on the glycemic index, which means that it will not spike your blood glucose and can be counted as zero net carbs. Swerve is also a great choice.
Heavy Cream – This adds a light and fluffy texture as well as a rich, creamy flavor to the chocolate mousse!
Cocoa Powder – You can certainly use any cocoa powder that you have on hand, but keep in mind that this recipe has very minimal ingredients. This means that the better quality they are, the better the dessert will taste. If you really want to be fancy, this Valrhona cocoa powder is amazing. For something a bit more economical but still very nice, try Rodelle. And of course, Hershey’s works too!
Vanilla Extract – We recommend pure vanilla and not the imitation stuf.
Toppings – We like to garnish this keto chocolate mousse with some additional toppings like fresh raspberries, chocolate shavings, or some keto whipped cream!
We use Thrive Market for a lot of our specialty ingredients and keto snacks or products. Their prices tend to be cheaper than the local stores and I love that you can so easily sort products by diet.
Like Costco, this is a membership site, but we find that it’s more than worth it based on the amount we save over the regular grocery store.
They have monthly or yearly plans. Check it out here.
- Decadent and Indulgent: This keto chocolate mousse feels like a ‘cheat’ but it fits perfectly into your low carb lifestyle.
- Rich and Velvety: Rich, creamy, soft, fluffy…all the good things about mousse!
- No Added Sugar: We use sugar free erythritol as the sweetener. It’s all natural, is a zero on the glycemic index, and has zero calories.

- Chocolate Goodness: Need we say more?
- Mix – You’ll start by beating cream cheese until it’s fluffy and then you’ll add the rest of the ingredients and beat all that together until it’s thick, rich, and creamy. <— Bam, keto chocolate mousse! Use an electric hand mixer to make things easy. It really doesn’t get more simple than that for dessert!
- Garnish – This keto chocolate mousse is delicious as it is, but you can really take it over the top with a few extras! Give the mousse a dollop of homemade whipped cream (or squirt some out from a can, no shame)! Use a vegetable peeler to shave a chocolate bar over the top of the mousse. I absolutely love Lily’s Chocolate. A couple of raspberries or strawberries are perfect with this. They add a little pop of tart flavor that helps cut the richness of the mousse.
It’s so easy to whip up dinner, dessert, or even snacks with this cute hand mixer. It’ll simplify just about any baking recipe by keeping all that mixing quick and easy. A good electric hand mixer like this one is a must for any kitchen, and they don’t take up much space. I’ve used this hand mixer for years and it’s my favorite! Get it on Amazon.
This keto chocolate mousse will need to be refrigerated! It should last at least 3 to 4 days if well covered.

I use and recommend Lakanto sweetener or Swerve for this recipe. Using other sweeteners may affect the sweetness level in this dessert. With Lakanto/Swerve, I would call this a semi-sweet mousse, leaning towards dark chocolate. You may add more or less sweetener to your tastes.
