Following the keto diet doesn’t have to mean cutting out dessert entirely. This keto chocolate mousse recipe only uses mashed avocado, vanilla extract, cacao powder, water and Keto Protein Chocolate to create a creamy keto dessert recipe.
This treat doesn’t compare to a traditional mousse recipe’s level of sweetness, but it will help satisfy any lingering after-dinner dessert cravings without knocking you out of ketosis. It's also got the perfect macros, with 256 calories per serving and 4 net carbs (total carbs minus fiber), 20 grams of fat and 12 grams of protein. You won't want any food until the next day!
The secret ingredient is Ancient Nutrition's Keto Protein Chocolate, which provides high-quality protein and fat from chicken bone broth and coconut MCTs plus energizing antioxidant and adaptogenic herbs. It's truly a superior keto protein.
How to Make Keto Chocolate Mousse
First, slice open the avocado and scoop out the flesh. Smash in a small bolw and then add to a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, simply hand mix in a mixing bowl, with wooden spoon.
Next, add the vanilla extract, keto protein powder and cacao powder and process (or mix) until creamy. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a scraper.
Add the water and process (or mix) until smooth.
Divide into four dessert bowls or glasses. Optionally, add some a few fresh blueberries and shaved coconut on top. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator up to three days or in the freezer up to two weeks.
