What is Mousse?

What’s the difference between mousse and pudding? Mousse is light and fluffy. The texture comes from whipping air into the mixture. It can be served sweet or savory.

Pudding is usually made from milk and sugar and thickened with cornstarch.

How to Make Stiff Peaks in Whipping Cream

When working with whipping cream and with many desserts, you will see instructions to beat the cream until soft, medium, or stiff peaks form. In this recipe you will beat the mixture until stiff peaks form.

Stiff peaks stand straight up when you lift your beaters from the mixture. 

Soft peaks will barely hold shape and will fall over.

Medium peaks hold their shape but will curl at the top, as opposed to standing straight up.

Can You Have Whipped Cream on Keto

You are better off making your own, which is really easy to do.

Add 1/2 cup whipping cream to a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer and mix for 2 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon of granulated sweetener. Mix until whipped cream forms.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 84 grams chocolate chips I use Lily's. This was about 1/4th of a cup, but be sure to weigh your chocolate chips for accurate macros.
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Confectioner's Sweetener I use organic powdered monkfruit. Use Discount Code STAYSNATCHED to save.

Instructions

  • Add 1/2 cup heavy cream and the chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Melt the cream and chocolate in the microwave for 60-90 seconds. Stir until the chocolate has fully melted. Microwave again if necessary. Mine took 90 seconds
  • Allow the melted chocolate to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup heavy cream, vanilla, and the Confectioner's (Powdered) Sweetener to the cooled chocolate in the mixing bowl.
  • Use a hand mixer or standing mixer to beat the cream and chocolate on medium for about 1-3 minutes until stiff peaks form. You can test stiff peaks using your mixer. Turn the whisks upside down they batter should point straight up without collapsing at all (or maybe a little bit just at the very tips). The mixture is thick and heavy. Do not overbeat, the mixture will split.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • The mixture will make 2 1/2 cups of mousse.
  • I use whipping cream that has zero carbs per serving.
  • If you don’t use powdered Confectioner’s sweetener, you may experience a change in texture and can taste the gains of sugar.
  • To make homemade whipped cream: Add 1/2 cup whipping cream to a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer and mix for 2 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon of granulated sweetener. Mix until whipped cream forms.

Super easy recipe, I've have made it at least 4 times with different flavored chocolate chips and it has never failed me. Initial thickness depends on if I let the ganache fully cool however, it always sets nicely once refrigerated for about an hour.
