Mmm, cheesecake… I LOVE cheesecake, which to be honest, is a pretty easy dessert to make paleo, low carb, or keto. But now that I’m not doing dairy, I thought cheesecake wasn’t going in my pie hole any time soon!
I gave it a little thought and knew there had to be a way to recreate cheesecake using coconut milk. I also wanted a recipe that is easy to make without a lot of steps, so I came up with this easy recipe! This dairy free keto cheesecake mousse isn’t quite cheesecake, but it does taste like cheesecake—just a lighter, fluffier, no-bake cheesecake mousse! This no-cook dessert is super quick and easy to make.
In just 10 minutes, you can have a fancyish dairy free, low carb treat! Just make sure to refrigerate your coconut milk overnight! Lately I’ve been making desserts that call for the cream from coconut milk, so I’ve been keeping a couple cans in the fridge, just in case!
You can even skip the crumble for this recipe, and just make the mousse—even easier! I used the mousse to top my Easy Low Carb Pancakes with some berries which was really good too!
1 c. Almond flour
3 Tbsp cacao powder
¼ c. Granulated zero calorie sweetener like Swerve*
*If you prefer a smoother crumble, you can substitute powdered sweetener
2 cans Full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
½ c Powdered zero calorie sweetener
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 ½ tsp. Lemon juice
For chocolate cheesecake mouse, add 4 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
Makes 4 desserts
Using a fork, combine all crumble ingredients until Coconut oil (or ghee/butter) is evenly distributed. Set aside.
Scoop the hardened coconut cream from the refrigerated coconut milk into a bowl (save the liquid for later to use in something like smoothies). Add remaining mousse ingredients and mix with electric mixer for 2–3 minutes until very smooth.
Layer the crumble and cheesecake mousse in a glass dish or decorative glass.
