Think you don’t like cottage cheese? Try whipped cottage cheese as a sweet smooth decadent treat.
This light and fluffy keto dessert has a surprising ingredient – cottage cheese!
If you are craving a sweet treat that’s also low carb, try whipping up this super easy chocolate mouse using cottage cheese, a keto-friendly sweetener, and unsweetened cocoa powder. You can use an immersion blender to whip up the cottage cheese as I did, a food processor, or a personal blender would work too.
If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy cheese as a dessert, this is it! I was inspired by this Instagram post by Shred Happens, and I’m so glad I gave it a go.
It’s a unique & easy idea that is dreamy and delish! I am honestly super impressed at how great this whipped cottage cheese turned out. The texture is smooth and the taste is yummy.
Consider making a chocolate or raspberry variation!
I am including a recipe for both chocolate mouse and raspberry. Both are very delicious. If you enjoy raspberry ice cream then you’ll love the whipped cottage cheese with vanilla extract, sweetener, and raspberries. it reminds me of my homemade keto raspberry cream pie.
I topped mine with a few keto chocolate chips and additional raspberries, but this can all be adjusted to your taste!

Tips for making the best cottage cheese mousse:
- Adapt this idea to your taste buds using your favorite keto sweetener to taste and consider making other variations such as strawberry or adding a favorite keto nut butter. There are so many ways you could customize!
- Try to grab a full-fat cottage cheese. This will yield a thicker creamy whipped mouse and is more suitable for keto.
- This idea would be easy to double and store half in the fridge for up to a day or two.

I believe you typed your carb numbers wrong
Hi Debbie, we double-checked with carb manager and still finding them correct. Total carb – fiber – sugar alcohols = net carbs. I hope that is helpful on how we came to those values.
Yummy treat. I made it just as you said with cocoa and monk fruit sweetener and full fat cottage cheese. What a great snack after my stationary bike workout. I added some frozen (thawed) raspberries on top of the chocolate for an added boost. 😋😋
Yay! Glad you enjoyed it with the raspberries, Jaci! 😋 Thanks for letting us know how yummy it turned out for you! 🥰
love this so easy. I did try some variations of the chocolate recipe. Instead of Cocoa I added 3-4 pkts of true lemon, lime or orange, added extra 1 tsp of sweetener to my taste. really good. definitely going to continue to try new variations to my taste. thank you for sharing your recipe
You’re SO welcome! 💖 Thanks for sharing how you made yours! Sounds delicious! 😋
