What is the Keto Diet?

Briefly, this diet focuses on consumption of high-fat, low-carb, low-sugar products. When you’re on this diet, your body reaches the state called  ketosis, when it burns fat instead of sugar. It has numerous health benefits (4), which include reducing the risk of cancer, acne, diabetes, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease (2, 3, 1). 

The products allowed on Keto generally include: 

  • Meat and protein: beef, poultry, pork, lamb, goat, turkey, organ meats (liver, tongue), ham, sausage, bacon, eggs
  • Seafood: mackerel, salmon, tuna, trout, cod, oysters, lobster, crab, octopus, shrimps
  • Fats and oils: butter, ghee, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, lard, duck fat, macadamia nuts, and avocado oil
  • Vegetables: lettuce, kale, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, onions, peppers, 
  • Dairy: Cheese (cheddar, goat, cream, blue, parmesan, mozzarella), sour cream, full-fat yogurt, mayonnaise, heavy cream
  • Low-sugar fruits: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, cherries, avocados
  • Nuts and seeds: macadamia nuts, pecans, Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds 
  • Healthy oils: Primarily extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil.
  • Avocados: Whole avocados or freshly made guacamole.
  • Low-carb veggies: Most green veggies, tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc.

As you can see, this list robs you of any products that could satisfy your sweet tooth. Yet it absolutely does not mean you must strip yourself of creamy desserts and yummy candies. It is entirely possible to make a sweet treat while strictly following Keto and not breaking the ketosis. Follow our ultra-simple keto chocolate mousse recipe to see for yourself!

Keto Chocolate Mousse

Keto Chocolate Mousse

Most chocolate mousse recipes involve melting chocolate, separating eggs, beating egg whites, and chilling for hours in the fridge. This recipe allows you to avoid that heavy-going monotonous process and be done with your dessert in only 10 minutes. 

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup powdered sweetener
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chocolate shavings, raspberries for garnish

Ingredients for your chocolate mousse

Keto Chocolate Mousse Instructions

  1. Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on low speed until well incorporated.
  3. Increase speed to high and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Spoon mixture into 6 serving bowls and top with chocolate or raspberries if desired. 
  5. It is very important to use good sweetener in order to make the taste perfect. Stevia is one of them, making the mousse sweet just right and allowing you not to break the ketosis. 

Besides, you may choose to add some accent to your mousse. For instance, you may add some peppermint extract, or top it with unsweetened coconut or a dollop of whipped cream. Alternatively, you can add a small spoonful of instant espresso or use low carb fruit toppings. You can keep this mousse in the fridge and enjoy it the next day too!
