The ingredients for this keto chocolate mousse
Heavy cream: When choosing a heavy cream make sure it’s unsweetened, organic, and preferably from grass-fed, grass-finished cows. This way you avoid the added sugars, antibiotics, and GMO crops that are fed to these animals which in turn can harm your health.
Raw cacao powder: Raw cacao powder is unsweetened and in the purest form. This way, you can avoid any extra additives that are often found in most chocolate.
Powdered erythritol: I like to use erythritol as a sweetener for my keto recipes. You can also replace this sweetener with any other keto-friendly sweetener of your likings like monk fruit or stevia. Make sure to use a powdered (or liquid stevia) form, this prevents the mousse to taste kind of ‘crunchy’.
The flavoring: To give the chocolate butter mousse some extra flavor, I added vanilla extract. You can choose to leave this ingredient out, but I prefer to use it since it gives it a more delicious taste.
- 1 cup unsweetened heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 3 tablespoons powdered erythritol
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large bowl add all the ingredients and mix with an electrical hand mixe until it forms a nice thick chocolate mousse.
- Optional you can pipe out the chocolate mousse with a piping bag.
