Lily’s dark chocolate chips (for topping, optional)

Sweeten and Flavor: Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of your chosen sugar substitute to the mixture. The sugar substitute should be keto-friendly and to your desired sweetness. You can adjust the sweetness to taste.
Whip It: Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip the mixture. Start on low speed and gradually increase it as the ingredients begin to combine. Whip until stiff peaks form. This will take a few minutes. Be careful not to overwhip, as it can make the mousse too thick.
Chill: Once stiff peaks have formed, your mousse is ready. If you prefer a firmer mousse, you can place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
Optional Chocolate Chips: If desired, sprinkle some Lily’s dark chocolate chips over the mousse. These chocolate chips are low in net carbs and suitable for a keto diet.
Freeze: To enjoy a more frozen treat, transfer the mousse to the freezer and allow it to set for about 2 hours. This will give it a slightly firmer texture, making it more like a frozen mousse.
Serve: Remove from the freezer, let it sit for a few minutes to soften slightly, and serve.
