Who said you can’t enjoy drool-worthy desserts on the keto diet? Pooey on them! If you love chocolate and who doesn’t and still want a guilt-free treat after dinner (or any time of the day, really), this chocolate chia mousse fits the bill perfectly!

You can whip up this delectable sugar-free dessert in under 15 minutes.

Is this healthy chocolate mousse keto-friendly

I’d love to tell you that this chocolate chia mousse is 100% keto-friendly, but I’d be lying. While it is most certainly much lower in carbs than most regular desserts, it still has a slightly higher carb count than a keto dessert should have.

But with that said, if you watch your carb count throughout the day, this treat should still be safe to enjoy guilt-free.

What you will need to make chocolate chia mousse

The beauty of this healthy dessert is that you don’t need a lot of ingredients or equipment.

There are two simple ways to make this chocolate chia mousse. The first way is to toss all ingredients in a blender and poof! Ready in minutes.

The second way is to soak the chia seeds for at least 45 minutes before adding all the remaining ingredients.

Equipment

Blender – if you choose to make it the speedy way, you will need a blender.

Small bowl – you will need a small bowl to mix all the ingredients in.

During this time, using a mixer, beat the coconut cream.
