A light and airy sugar free cheesecake mousse recipe that's quick and easy to prepare. This low carb dessert is great with chocolate or fruit sauce.
You can probably tell from my previous recipes that I like low carb mousse recipes. They're sweet, fluffy and make the perfect light dessert after dinner!
I'll share all of my favorites at the end of this post.
But, before I do, I've got another great recipe to share with all of you low carb fans. A sugar-free cheesecake keto mousse!
A Healthier Option
This sugar free cheesecake mousse is great because it ends up being much healthier than regular cheesecake. This dessert doesn't have a crust, meaning gone are the calories and fat of melted butter and the heaviness of an almond flour crust.
The best part is that it's one of the quickest low carb desserts you can ever make. Plus, it only uses only six ingredients and a single bowl (instead of a springform pan!) that you likely already have.
How To Make An Easy Keto Cheesecake Mousse
This is the easiest keto dessert with cream cheese you have ever made!
The entire recipe along with the recipe steps are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Keep reading - I have some important tips and helpful pictures of the process of making the keto fluff that I'm sure will help you out.
Whip The Softened Cream Cheese
For this recipe, you start by putting a block of cream cheese in a mixing bowl. (photo #1) For this sugar free cheesecake keto mousse, I use it right out of the refrigerator.
To soften the cheese, I put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then stir it up with a fork (photo #2). It's important to start with softened cream cheese, otherwise you could end up with lumps.
Add Sweeteners and Extracts
At this point, it's time to add sweetener and flavor extracts (photos #3 & #4). I love using a mix of erythritol and stevia along with stevia extract powder. But, feel free to use the sweetener(s) of your choice.
You can always taste test to get the amount right of sweetener. The recipe needs about ½ to ¾ of sugar replacement depending on how sweet you like it.
For the extracts, I use vanilla and lemon. However, feel free to experiment with different ones or lemon juice to change up the taste!
Mix In Whipped Cream For A Light Keto Fluff
The sweetened cream cheese mix is excellent by itself before adding the whipped cream.
However, to get the airy texture, you'll want to incorporate the cream by folding it in first (photo #5) which prevents too much deflation. Then, the entire mixture is whipped together (photo #6) with an electric mixer.
How To Fold In Ingredients For A Fluffy Cheesecake Mousse
No, it's not like folding a shirt. You have to take your time and be gentle.
To fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese, take your spatula and lightly bring the cream cheese from the sides of the bowl on top of the cream cheese in the middle.
Folding is basically a lighter version of mixing. You are still combining the whipped cream with the cream cheese, but you are doing it gently.
How To Serve Keto Cheesecake Fluff
Another wonderful thing about this low carb dessert with cream cheese is that you can serve it in a variety of ways. Pick your favorite!
Chill And Serve In Individual Dishes
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 the mousse first and then putting it into serving dishes.
I recommend using a pastry bag to pipe the mousse into single servings gives a pretty look, but scooping it out with a spoon is okay too.
Add Fruit Or Spices To The Mousse
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 of the sugar-free cheesecake keto mousse. Or, maybe you prefer a low carb fruit sauce.
There are so many different ways to go about it!
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.
You can even blend it with another low carb mousse for an easy layered dessert!
I enjoyed this low carb cheesecake mousse so much that I'm already planning to make it again. But, I may change up the flavors next time.
A chocolate or berry cheesecake flavor would surely be tasty. There's practically endless possibilities with this simple keto dessert with heavy whipping cream and cream cheese.
How To Store Keto Fluff
Just like other low-carb cream cheese desserts, this needs to be refrigerated. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for about 4-5 days.
Can you freeze a low-carb dessert with cream cheese?
Yes, you can but the texture will change. Instead of being light and fluffy, it will become a hard block, kind of like a solid block of ice cream.
As it thaws, it will be easier to eat, but it still won't have the same fluffy texture.
Just a fair warning.
