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.
