I see real possibilities with this recipe. You could dress this one up with some sweet cinnamon almond meal sprinkles to mimic graham cracker crumbs and add some drizzled strawberry sauce for a strawberry cheesecake parfait.
Maybe you want to put some chocolate shavings on top or a low carb fruit sauce. For a quick topping, I sprinkled sugar free chocolate chips on each serving. Another option would be to double the recipe and use it as a light and airy no-bake cheesecake filling.
For this recipe, you start with softened cream cheese and add your favorite sweetener. I love using a mix of erythritol and stevia, but feel free to use the sweetener(s) of your choice.
You can always taste test to get the amount right. The recipe needs about 1/2 to 3/4 of sugar replacement depending on how sweet you like it.
I use cream cheese right out of the refrigerator and put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it. You need to make sure you start with softened cream cheese, otherwise you could end up with lumps.
The sweetened cream cheese mix is excellent by itself before adding the whipped cream. However, to get the airy texture, you’ll want to incorporated the cream by folding it in first which prevents too much deflation and then whip the entire mixture together.
You can pipe or spoon the mousse into individual serving dishes right away or do it after the mousse has chilled in the refrigerator. I prefer chilling first and then putting into serving dishes.
Using a pastry bag to pipe the mousse into single servings gives a pretty look, but scooping out with a spoon is fine as well. I enjoyed this low carb cheesecake mousse so much that I’m already planning to make it again.
