Chocolate mousse or mousse au chocolat originates in French cuisine. The French word "mousse" translates to "froth" or "foam." This elegant dessert became popular in the United States in the 1930's along with chocolate pudding.
French mousse was originally made with sweet fruits, savory meats, or veggies. It is typically served in fine glasses or small bowls and garnished with nuts, fruits, and sauces.

- 2 cups Heavy Cream
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 tsp. Liquid Stevia
- 1/4 tsp. Mineral Salt
- Optional: Cocoa Nibs, Shredded Coconut, Crushed Nuts, Berries
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with an immersion blender. Use a deep bowl to prevent splatter. Mix for about 1 minute until the chocolate mousse is thick and fluffy. Scoop it into small bowls and garnish with the optional ingredients. Add a few berries on top for a great flavor combination!
- Mixing adds air for fluffy texture.
- Use a food processor or Nutribullet instead of an immersion blender. You can also whip the chocolate mousse with a whisk, but it's a workout!
- Enjoy low carb berries on the keto diet. Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries only have 3-4 net carbs per 1/4 cup. View my Strawberry Mousse for a great example.

Imagine this scenario: after a busy day, you eat a light dinner and are still feeling a little hungry. You ask yourself, should I eat something else or should I abstain until tomorrow? Eating a small bowl of chocolate mousse will satiate your hunger and set you up for successful Time Restricted Eating the next day.

It's best to east in a consistent structure that fits your unique lifestyle. For example, I eat breakfast at 11:00 AM, an optional snack at 2:00 PM and a large dinner at 7:00 PM. When you choose eat with structure, your metabolism will become accustomed to a consistent pattern. The body is much happier when it can rely on a predictable pattern of eating. Alternatively, there is mindlessly eat without structure. The body is not able to predict food consumption and the metabolism becomes off balance.

Buying bulk foods online can save you money and time. You also help support my blog when you click through my links and purchase anything from Amazon. I only choose the best keto ingredients for your diet.
Cocoa powder is a great ingredient for the keto diet. For every tablespoon, there are 10 calories, .5g fat, 1 net carb, 2g fiber, and .5g protein. Cocoa is high in magnesium, which is an essential mineral involved in many biochemical processes. Most Americans are deficient in magnesium, and supplementing with magnesium citrate before bed can promote restful sleep. You could also just eat a couple tablespoons of cocoa nibs, which are super dense in magnesium!
Liquid stevia is my go to sweetener for the keto diet. I like the Better Stevia brand for their large size and variety of flavors. A large bottle will last me 4-5 months, and I use it everyday! Liquid stevia is a super strong sweetener. If you are new to using it, start with only a few drops and taste test. Be sure to check out Better Stevia's different flavors like: vanilla, toffee, coconut, chocolate, and more.
An immersion blender is a great cooking tool for quick keto recipes. It’s all the benefits of a blender without the awkward cleanup. You can use an immersion blender for all kinds of recipes. Check out my Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup or my Homemade Keto Mayo for a couple examples. You could also use a Nutribullet or food processor to make my keto chocolate mousse.
Redmond Real Salt is my go to mineral salt. This brand has the most minerals and best flavor. It is harvested from salt mines in Utah, which come from ancient oceans. You don’t have to worry about any toxins or plastics, which are found in the oceans today. If you would like to eat more mineral salts, I often use Himalayan pink salt, Celtic Sea Salt, and regular iodized salt for the iodine.
