A feathery light keto chocolate mousse that is so easy to make
Mad Creations Chocolate Mousse - Sugar Free, Gluten Free

I have made this sugar free chocolate mousse more times than I care to say.  It is incredibly easy and equally incredibly delicious.

It is great on it’s own and it has been featured in a few other of my recipes because it is THAT good.

Ironically I used to love those diet mousse pots you can buy at the supermarket.  Back in the day when I thought low fat was the way to go.  Haha!  Joke was certainly on me! 

All those low fat treats, and “healthy” grain meals only got me fatter than I ever should be, and at risk for a heart explosion.

So if you are like I was then toss away the low fat, and make a mousse that absolutely smashes in flavour, anything you can buy at the supermarkets.

Keto Chocolate Mousse Ingredients

This keto mousse recipe is super simple to make. Basic ingredients with a minimum of fuss to prepare. Just the way I love to have all my recipes. (If you really are a keto sweets fan then use the link to check out a lot more).

Eggs – I always use jumbo eggs at room temperature. Use very fresh eggs so that you get stiff peaks with whipping the whites.

Sweetener – I use Sukrin Melis. It is powdered sweetener which is zero carb and zero calorie.

Dark Chocolate – I use Well Naturally Dark Chocolate to keep this recipe sugar free and keto friendly. It is sweetened with Stevia and Erythritol.

Cream – I use thickened or heavy cream.

Vanilla – Vanilla Extract or beans

Nutmeg – I always grate my nutmeg fresh. This chocolate mousse is seriously taken to the next level with fresh nutmeg.

Flavours for Chocolate Mousse
Add essential oils, finely grated citrus rind, or extracts to flavour the mousse. Flavoured protein powders, collagen powders and flavours such as Vital Zing Drops can be used to flavour it.
Is it safe to use a recipe that has a raw egg?
There is low-level risk of salmonella being present on eggshells. It’s a risk that exists in all poultry products.
It is recommended that raw eggs be consumed immediately after being cracked open. This is because if the shell contains salmonella and a small piece is to fall into the eggs, the risk grows. It is up to you to include raw eggs. I don’t have an issue. The risk is small, and to be fair, salmonella poisoning can occur from many other foods that are pre-packaged or freshly prepared. The risk of salmonella with raw eggs is not a high-risk food, so I am good with that. Here is a short article to read>> to make your own decision.
How to Make Chocolate Mousse without Raw Egg?
If using the conventional method; to make chocolate mousse with cooked eggs all you need to do is set up a saucepan over medium low heat. Place the egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of sweetener into large heat-safe bowl and whisk over the simmering water until pale. Be sure to continually whisk and not to have the heat to high (to avoid scrambling). Remove from the heat once pale and warmed through. Set the mixture over a bowl of ice while preparing the chocolate in Step 1. Add the slightly cooled eggs. Whisk until well combined. Follow on from 4.

    Although I havent tryed it yet, do you have to use nutmeg? Or does it have to be freshly grated?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      You can leave it out if you want to.

    Yum! This is making me crave. Delish!

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      I hope you enjoyed it.

    2. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Haha! Enjoy!

  3. Chris

    So easy! Even after half a day of day drinking, therefore a few mistakes and not quite following the instructions as per recipe…even my Master 17 yr old said ‘oh yum!’

  4. Janet

    Does the mousse taste eggy, with raw egg in it..??

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      No, it doesn’t taste eggy at all.

  5. Jasmine

    I’ve made this twice now and it hasn’t turned out the best either times. After I whip the cream I add the melted chocolate to the cream but it doesn’t combine well, the chocolate solidifies into lots of tiny pieces making it grainy. Any tips?

    1. Megan

      Try bringing the chocolate to a cooler temp and a little bit of cream in after it has cooled and the whip in all together

  6. Nicole

    No thermomix option?

    1. Megan

      This has been amended for you

  7. Nicole

    1. Megan

      Yes it is. The correction has been made

    Megan how do you melt your chocolate and do you have the amendment above?
    In your Picture what is the topping cream or a vanilla Mousse?


    1. Megan

      Hi Deborah, I just melt the chocolate for a minute in the microwave and stir until all smooth. The topping is lemon curd mixed with whipped cream

  12. Liz

    Do you add the chocolate to the egg mix or the cream? When do you add the chocolate?

    1. Megan

      I will have to have a look liz and adjust the recipe. Sorry.

    Wow! Is all I can say – so easy – although I did have to message the wonderful Megan half way through as wasn’t sure if whipped cream was to go in the mousse or was a topper! (It goes in with egg whites and chocolate!) I made 9 little chic pots – 10 really if you count the one I may have inadvertently eat while making it. I added the orange essential oil – Mr. non LCHF couldn’t tell it was Keto and has devoured 3 already. Great ‘do ahead’ dessert. Thank you Megan!

  14. Tia

    Would honey work ok for the sweetener? X

    1. Megan

      I haven’t tried it but it should
