For those embarking on a low-carb or keto journey, indulging in sweet treats can often seem like a distant memory. This keto strawberry mousse, however, revives the joy of dessert with its delectably creamy texture and vibrant bursts of fresh strawberry flavor. Originating from French cuisine, mousse traditionally means ‘foam,’ characterized by its light and airy consistency. This recipe replaces sugar with keto-friendly sweeteners, making it an ideal choice for those wishing to satisfy their sweet tooth without compromising their dietary goals.

This delightful keto strawberry mousse pairs wonderfully with a light almond flour cookie or a handful of toasted nuts for added crunch. For a more elaborate dessert, consider layering the mousse with low-carb granola and fresh berries in a parfait glass. If you’re serving it as part of a larger meal, it makes a perfect, refreshing finish after a rich and hearty main course like grilled steak or roasted chicken.

Keto Strawberry Mousse
Servings: 4


  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup erythritol or preferred keto sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • A pinch of salt


  1. In a blender or food processor, purée the strawberries until smooth. Pass the purée through a fine sieve to remove seeds, if desired.
  2. Transfer the strawberry purée to a medium bowl and stir in the erythritol, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the heavy whipping cream and a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently fold the strawberry mixture into the whipped cream until fully incorporated and smooth.
  5. Spoon the mousse into serving cups and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set.
  6. Before serving, optionally garnish with fresh strawberry slices and a sprig of mint.

Variations & Tips For a different flavor profile, try using raspberries or blueberries in place of strawberries. If you’d like to add more texture, consider folding in finely chopped nuts or unsweetened coconut flakes. Additionally, for a more indulgent mousse, incorporate a small amount of softened cream cheese into the strawberry mixture before folding it into the whipped cream, resulting in a richer, cheesecake-like consistency.
