Sometimes the simplest desserts are the best desserts. Enter our easy keto chocolate mousse!
Any mousse is divine, but this keto dessert is just heavenly!
You’re not dreaming—this luscious, whipped, chocolatey dessert is truly keto-friendly. I made this rich keto chocolate mousse with only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep… so yep, it’s that easy!
Rich chocolate flavor with just the right amount of sweetness
What I love about this dessert is that it curbs my sugar cravings without being over-the-top sweet. There’s just the right amount of Swerve Confectioners Sweetener and a lovely cocoa flavor from the ChocZero Milk Chocolate Chips. These keto baking chips are SO good by the way and have no added sugar due to being sweetened with monk fruit.
Tips for perfectly rich keto chocolate mousse:
- Change up the flavors from a traditional chocolate mousse to mint chocolate by adding in peppermint extract.
- In the summertime, you can freeze the mousse in popsicle molds for a delicious and refreshing treat!
- We love using ChocZero baking chips in our dessert recipes! Better yet, you can use our exclusive promo code HIP2KETO at checkout to score 10% off your entire order.
- Dairy-free? Try Silk’s dairy-free heavy whipping cream and a tablespoon of coconut oil (in place of the butter) for a keto non-dairy dessert idea!
Keto Chocolate Mousse
yield: 8 SERVINGS
prep time: 10 MINUTES
total time: 10 MINUTES
Whipped cream and melted keto chocolate chips come together to make a light and airy, yet sinfully rich chocolate mousse.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons Swerve confectioners sweetener (or more to taste)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup ChocZero milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large bowl, add heavy whipping cream, Swerve confectioners sweetener, and vanilla extract. Whip with a hand or stand mixer until soft peaks form about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt keto chocolate chips and butter in the microwave in 15-second intervals until fully melted. Mine only took a total of 30 seconds! Stir to combine. Let the chocolate cool for at least a few minutes.
Once cooled, slowly pour melted chocolate into the whipped cream and fold gently until completely incorporated.
Divide out into cups or sealable portion bowls and chill for one to two hours before serving.
Top with additional chocolate chips if desired, and enjoy!

My sidekick Emily had this to say about this keto chocolate mousse recipe:
“I love anything chocolate and this is literally the easiest chocolate dessert to make! It’s not overly sweet, which is perfect. Rich desserts are more my style than something overly sugary tasting. The best part is that it looks super fancy and like you put a lot of effort into making it!”
My Hip sidekick Jenna also gave this keto chocolate mousse a try and here’s what she thought:
“This has such a great flavor and is so simple to make: just whip it together, refrigerate, and it’s ready to be enjoyed! This turned out beautifully and even the kids enjoyed it, having no idea it’s sugar-free! I saved half of this for the next day and it was still good then, too. In fact, I think it could be refrigerated for a couple of days and it would still be in great shape.YUM!”

I tried making this the other night and the texture seemed off. The chocolate and whipping cream didnt blend well together.. The only thing I did different was using Lily’s dark chocolate chips… Could that be the cause?
Hmm, could be as milk chocolate is creamier. Also, maybe next time try to whip it a bit longer and / or be sure to fold the melted chocolate gently into the whipped cream. Hoping these suggestions are helpful!
Thanks for the reply I will try again soon with your suggestions. 😊
You’re so welcome!
I am wondering why you cannot just use cocoa powder and add mini chocolate chips on top or fold into mixture. This is how I do it. It seems to me whipping cream has to stay cold and when u add something hot into it ir will change the texture
Hi Penny! We found that melting chocolate produces a richer chocolate taste and is closer to a traditional chocolate mousse recipe. You can use cocoa powder but that makes more of a chocolate-flavored whipped cream. The recipe has been updated to include letting the chocolate cool a little before adding it to the whipped cream.
Hi Deanna! You can try letting the chocolate cool down for a few minutes before adding it to the whipped cream. That will help it blend better. The recipe instructions have been updated as well.
What else can I use besides Swerve, and how much? I have some liquid Stevia that I don’t know how to use, haha.
