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 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.

What to use this Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse for?

This Low-Carb, Keto, Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse Recipe makes a simple, but decadent, restaurant quality dessert that could either be served on its own or used as a cake frosting, filling or on crepes and pancakes.
