Summertime means quick and easy keto desserts, but this easy keto chocolate mousse recipe is one you’ll want to make all year long. Thanks to ChocZero chocolate chips, this low carb sugar-free mousse has just 1.6 grams net carbs per serving – making it a delicious and simple way to satisfy those chocolate cravings, in a healthy and low carb way!
Even better, keto mousse takes just 10 minutes to make, so it’s easy to make whenever you need a quick and satisfying dessert. It’s thick, creamy, decadent, and FULL of rich, chocolate-y flavor.
Traditional chocolate mousse is made with egg yolks and whites, with the whites providing lift and the yolks providing creaminess. It’s a little fussy – you have to separate and temper the eggs, and there are multiple steps. This keto chocolate mousse with heavy cream is a lot simpler – just 4 ingredients and five fuss-free steps.
ChocZero sugar-free chocolate chips are the star of this quick keto dessert. They are low carb, sweetened with monk fruit, non-gmo, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free (read why soy is bad here), and use only natural ingredients.
But best of all, they taste amazing! No weird aftertaste. I use them to make keto chocolate chip cookies, sprinkle on (or fold into) keto pancakes, and now, for this easy chocolate mousse keto recipe.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Mousse
This keto chocolate mousse takes just 10 minutes – and with no oven required, it’s the perfect no bake keto dessert for a hot day.
- Melt chocolate chips. In a small double boiler on the stove top, or a small bowl in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips. Remove from heat and allow to cool until no longer hot, but not solidified.
- Beat cream. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Sprinkle powdered sweetener on top, and beat until just combined.
TIP: Do not overmix! Soft peaks will form trails, but are not super stiff. If you hold your mixer up, the peaks should curve over.
- Mix chocolate and mascarpone. One the melted chocolate is lukewarm, stir in the mascarpone, until smooth.
- Fold in whipped cream. To finish your sugar-free mousse, add the chocolate mixture to the whipped cream, and gently fold together, until just combined. Taste and adjust sweetener if needed.
- Portion. Transfer low carb chocolate mousse into small glass jars or serving dishes.
- Serve. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and more chocolate chips if desired.
Easy Keto Mousse FAQs
Can I use a different sweetener to make keto mousse?
Yes, but I prefer powdered allulose for the smoothest quick keto chocolate mousse.
If you don’t have it, my keto sweeteners guide has a conversion calculator included – use that to find out how much to use of whatever you have. Just make sure that you are using a powdered sweetener, so that your mousse is smooth, not gritty.
