Chocolate Mousse

This is a great keto dessert for dinner parties. Make just before your guests arrive and serve at room temperature so the mousse is gooey and melts in your mouth. A dash of alcohol adds a nice kick (omit if serving to kids).

  • 120 g 90% dark chocolate 
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp xylitol (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vodka  (optional) 
  • Serve with whipped cream and fresh berries.


  • Break the chocolate up and place in a heatproof bowl.
  • Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in a saucepan. Set the heat-proof bowl over the saucepan, ensuring the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl.

  • Whisk egg whites until stiff.
  • Gently mix the yolks and the melted chocolate.
  • Add the alcohol to the chocolate mixture (if using).
  • Fold the stiff egg whites, a few spoonfuls at a time, into chocolate mixture until incorporated.
  • Pour evenly into the glasses you wish to serve the mousse in.
  • Keep at room temperature until ready to serve.
