Low-Carb, Keto, Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse Recipe in a shot glass

I had some difficulty naming this Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse Recipe. The truth is that this chocolate mousse really is a cheesecake mousse. There is nothing special and complicated about it.

To make this chocolate mousse low-carb and sugar free, I used Stevia sweetened semi-sweet chocolate, cream cheese, Swerve sweetened (or powdered Erythritol) and heavy cream.

Almost like thick, stabilized chocolate whipped cream.

Cream cheese is the perfect ingredient to thicken and make this keto chocolate mousse silky, light and creamy.

This dessert is so simple to make and I make it every time I crave something chocolatey!

I like to top it with fresh berries and whipped cream.

What ingredients do you need to make this Keto chocolate mousse?

  • keto chocolate
  • cream cheese
  • keto sweetener

  • vanilla (optional)

How to make Keto chocolate mousse?

  1. Beat cream cheese and powdered sweetener until combined.

  3. Slowly add in the heavy cream, while beating on medium speed. Increase the speed to high and beat for 1-2 minutes, until creamy and fluffy.
  4. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.

What kind of sweetener to use in this Low-Carb, Keto, Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse Recipe?

As usual, I used powdered erythritol or Swerve. You can use liquid stevia to taste on its own or in combination with he powdered erythritol to make the keto mousse more sweet.

Liquid Stevia vs Swerve (or powdered erythritol)?

I personally only use liquid Stevia extract in drinks. I almost never use it in making or any desserts.

Both sweeteners are calorie free and have the same amount of carbs. They both taste less sweet that sugar to me and have a slight after taste. I’d say that Stevia extract has a stronger after taste to me.

Use what works best for you.

Can you make this Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse in advance?

Yes, you can make it in advance and keep in in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for a month.

  1. So yummy! I’ve made this mousse twice now and it’s my perfect go-to for when I’m craving something sweet!

  2. Well this recipe looks delicious it’s not keto friendly. Most keto diet or try to keep their carb intake to 20 to 25 carbs per day and at 10 grams this is almost half.

    1. WRONG:This diet has been around since 1921 and has many types or forms of it
      Types of Ketogenic Diets
      There are several versions of the ketogenic diet, including:

      Standard ketogenic diet (SKD): This is a very low-carb, moderate-protein and high-fat diet. It typically contains 75% fat, 20% protein and only 5% carbs (1).
      Cyclical ketogenic diet (CKD): This diet involves periods of higher-carb refeeds, such as 5 ketogenic days followed by 2 high-carb days.
      Targeted ketogenic diet (TKD): This diet allows you to add carbs around workouts.
      High-protein ketogenic diet: This is similar to a standard ketogenic diet, but includes more protein. The ratio is often 60% fat, 35% protein and 5% carbs.
      However, only the standard and high-protein ketogenic diets have been studied extensively. Cyclical or targeted ketogenic diets are more advanced methods and primarily used by bodybuilders or athletes.

      The ketogenic diet as a treatment for epilepsy was discovered in 1921 by Dr. Russel Wilder, MD, of the Mayo Clinic.

      1. Yes, you are absolutely right Debbie. I’d assume that someone like Leann, who is very concerned about carbs does not take this into consideration.

  3. Love this dessert !  I used sugar free Hershey’s chocolate chips instead . Melted and added into the cream cheese 
    Doubled the recipe. So delicious ! 

  4. My husband and I LOVE this dessert! I use Cacao powder in it instead of melting the chocolate. So EASY and Delicious! Thank you so much. Have made this 3 times now! I also want to try putting it into an Almond flour pie crust. 

    1. Hi Kathy,
      I doubt that Rita will be notified about your comment and will be able to respond.
      You can use 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in this recipe. Let me know how it turns.

    1. Hi Sue,
      I don’t own a microwave and I use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. I use Lilly’s Dark Chocolate. There also is a Stevia sweetened chocolate at Trader Joe’s that can be used. Baker’s unsweetened chocolate works as well, but you may need to increase the amount of the sweetener. Hope this helps.

  5. So easy and delicious! I melted chocolate chips into my cream cheese to make it easier to stir, so everything came together in one bowl. Yum!
