Persimmon is high in fiber and relatively low in carbs. It works perfectly as the base for this keto mousse recipe.

What can I top keto chocolate mousse with?

You can make whipped cream with heavy whipping cream as a topping. If you want it sweeter, you can add an artificial powdered sweetener like a monk fruit blend.

To cut the carbs a bit more, you can use unsweetened cocoa and a sugar free sweetener in this keto chocolate mousse recipe. Try coconut cream whipped cream rather than traditional whipped cream.
