Ingredients and Variations
DAIRY: A mouthwatering mousse starts with full-fat dairy products for maximum flavor! Heavy whipping cream and cream cheese guarantee the ultimate fluffy chocolate whip.
CHOCOLATE: Any brand of cocoa powder will do, and with this recipe, the cocoa powder amount can be adjusted for mild or maximum cocoa flavor. Dutch-pressed cocoa is alkalized and provides a smoother flavor and is higher in antioxidants, so it’s worth the extra few cents!
SWEETENER: Swerve is one of the most popular sugar alternatives on the market because it measures just like sugar. But any granular or liquid sugar substitute can be used, simply check the ratios on the packaging. Stevia and monk fruit sweeteners are also popular choices.
EXTRAS: In addition to the vanilla extract, it’s fun to customize keto chocolate mousse! Try adding a drop or two of coconut extract, banana liqueur, brandy, or even rum for a whole new flavor! Or go for orange extract and enjoy a citrusy burst of flavor. Or mix in some creamy peanut butter with the cream cheese, for a chocolate peanut butter mousse!
PRO TIP: If using nuts as a topping or a mix-in, toast them first in a dry pan to make them extra crunchy and intensify the flavor!
