What are the 3 ingredients for lemon keto cheesecake mousse
Obviously I used cream cheese but the other two ingredient are heavy whipping cream and a stick of sugar free lemonade drink mix. I bought all of the ingredients at Aldi and while I used a lemon to decorate these keto desserts, they are not necessary. I just used the zest of the lemon by the way.
Let’s make this no bake dessert
First thing to do is make sure your cream cheese is softened. If you are desperate you can heat it up in the microwave for 10-30 seconds. But be careful not to soften it too much. Add it to a mixing bowl and cream.
Next add 1 stick of the sugar free lemonade and the heavy whipping cream and beat until it’s nice and creamy. It should look like the mixture below.
You can spoon it into small containers or pipe it into little dessert cups like I did. And that is all there is to it!
Above you can see that I just added some lemon zest for color. I used a microplane to make the zest. In the photo below I made a little flower with the lemon peel. Just use a vegetable peeler to make wide strips of the peel and cut them into petal shapes.
Keto Lemon Mousse Recipe Notes and Tips
- The cream cheese should be softened and the heavy whipping cream should be cold.
- You can try different flavors of sugar free drink mix to change the flavor.
- You can also try to add additional flavors using extracts like this raspberry extract.
- If you don’t have an icing bag and tips, just spoon the mixture into a ziplock bag and cut one of the corners. You can then use that as an icing bag to pipe into little 3.5 oz dessert cups.
Well I hope you give these embarrassingly easy low carb desserts a try. They make a great dessert or snack too. The nutritional information for 1 serving is:
