If you like strawberries as much as we do, and want something light, fluffy, and still keto-friendly then this recipe is exactly what you’ll want to make. Like this keto strawberry cheesecake, this low carb strawberry dessert tastes amazing!

 

 

This strawberry keto mousse uses only fresh strawberries, cool whip, and a bit of gelatin powder. Of course, vanilla is used too, because it makes this recipe so much better.

This recipe is super easy to make, just like our berry cheesecake parfait recipe, and you just have to puree the strawberries and mix everything together. Plus, there is no sweetener used in this recipe as the strawberries are sweet on their own. However, if you enjoy your desserts sweeter, you can use a low carb sweetener of your choice. 

Can frozen strawberries be used to make this keto mousse?

If you do not have fresh strawberries, you can also use frozen strawberries. Before use, thaw the frozen berries and process with the recipe as usual. 

 

Tips to make the strawberry mousse:

  • Use cool whip for this recipe. If you do not have any cool whip, use a mix equal amounts of cream cheese and heavy cream, with some gelatin powder to stabilize the mixture.
  • For this recipe, we used fresh strawberries, but you can also use frozen strawberries. Just make sure to thaw them before use or, if you do not want to thaw the strawberries, use a high power blender to blend frozen strawberries. 
  • If you want more flavor you can add sugar-free strawberry Jell-O to this recipe.

Storing and freezing low carb strawberry mousse

You can store the strawberry mousse in a fridge for up 24 hours in a jar. This recipe isn’t ideal for freezing as the mousse will collapse and become very runny once thawed. So avoid freezing the entire low carb mousse. However, you can freeze in small drops like yogurt drops and use on top of ice cream if you’d like.

Can other fruits be used?

You can use many other fruits to make variations of this keto mousse. For instance you can use blueberries to make a keto blueberry mousse or blackberries to make a blackberry mousse or raspberries to make a keto raspberry mousse. When it comes to different flavors you can experiment with just about any keto friendly fruit of your choice. 

How to make this strawberry mousse firm?

Many people wonder how to make strawberry mousse firm. Many times, when a mousse isn’t firm this is simply because the recipe does not incorporate ingredients like gelatin. This recipe here uses gelatin which makes this particular keto strawberry mousse firm. There there is not need for extra firming.
