Keto mousse is a simple dessert that helps to satisfy sweet cravings. It’s very simple to make – we just whip up some fat (like cream, butter, cream cheese, mascarpone) with flavours. This version combines a high-fat base with vanilla and berries, for a rich, creamy and fruity taste.
It is delicious, summery and very, very high in fat. Anyone who is not on a ketogenic diet should probably stop reading now! You have been warned.
This Keto mousse recipe clocks up about 4g net carbs, from cream cheese and blueberries. You could lower this by substituting some of the cream cheese with more butter or cream instead.
This recipe is based on my very popular keto chocolate mousse from last year. I tweaked the proportions slightly.
I included blueberries for this recipe, but you can use any other berries instead, or skip that step and just have a vanilla-flavoured mix.
I also used a real vanilla pod because I quite enjoy playing around with those little vanilla seeds. You can also substitute with 1 -2 tsp of sugar-free vanilla extract.

Can’t have trivia and stevia still leaves an aftertaste. But monk fruit sugar is wonderful. No aftertaste and better for you. Use the powdered kind in the mouse. Recipe calls for 3ozes cream cheese, 1/2 c heavy cream, 1teasp vanilla, 1/4 c monk sweetener, 2 tablespoon cocoa and a pinch of salt. Beat until thick and creamy. Change flavoring as desired.
It’s just adds a small amount of moisture, so you can add a little less cream. I use liquid stevia in a lot of recipes. Add the cream in small amounts until you get a good consistency
Just tried this, using unsweetened white chocolate, melted and cooled, in place of the butter. It made an awesome white chocolate/blueberry fat bomb! This would also be delicious with raspberries.
Ooh – white chocolate – I like your thinking! I must try it too.
Agree about raspberries – really any berries would work instead of blueberries.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, and best of luck with your diet!
Sounds great! Can’t wait to try with strawberries. But, biscuits? What am I missing?
Sorry – biscuits? Not sure what you mean?
Right under Ingredients it states “For the biscuits”. I, too, was wondering…
Oh dear – yes, you are absolutely right – it mentioned biscuits by mistake! I copied the layout for the recipe from a different one, changed the contents but missed out the bit about the biscuits. Corrected now! Thanks for letting me know.
Thanks for the tips and breal down of recipes. I will be trying these for desserts.
Thank you Sharon, best of luck with your diet!
I know this is an old recipe, but I just stumbled upon it. Made it tonight so I can have for breakfast. Super yummy! Thanks for sharing!!
Thank you Meka, I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe 🙂
Seriously yummy. So glad I found this recipe, easy to make and really worth it!
Hi Bianca, liquid drops should work fine for this particular recipe.
Hi thanks for some awesome recipes. It’s tough to find low carb granulated sugar options for a keto diet in South Africa. I use stevia drops, what adaptions can I make to make cookies with the drops?
