If you’re a peanut butter lover, then you’ll enjoy this rich and creamy low-carb, Keto Peanut Butter Mousse recipe. It’s the perfect quick dessert that will cure your sweet tooth! It uses just 5 ingredients and can be enjoyed as is or as part of a layered no-bake dessert.
Why Make This
With this quick and easy dessert, you get the flavor of peanut butter and the texture of cheesecake without baking! I love throwing this together when I’m craving something sweet, but don’t have the time or desire to bake.
Best Peanut Butter for Keto
I enjoy peanut butter regularly. However, I always opt for unsweetened. If you are sensitive to peanut butter, you can swap it for any of these keto-friendly nut butter options.
How to Make No Bake Mousse
Making keto mousse is simple no matter the flavor you choose. You can use the picture below to see the process step-by-step.
One thing that makes the mousse creamier is to start with softened cream cheese. Not only is it easier to blend, but it also prevents lumps and clumps in the final result.
Substitutions & Variations
You can balance the sweet flavors of this keto mousse with salty bites of chopped peanuts. Instead of caramel extract, feel free to add vanilla extract if that is what you have.
Add ½ tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder for a chocolate peanut butter version. It would also be delicious to throw some chopped keto peanut butter cups on top.
I have not tried this recipe with dried peanut butter, but I use powdered cocoa in the chocolate version of this recipe. When using dried ingredients, I find that you can add about one tablespoon. But, you can always add more to taste for richer peanut butter flavor.
What To Serve This With
Overall, this keto mousse is delicious and rich and can stand on its own. If you’d like to pair it with something, some fun options are:
- Keep it simple and add a dollop of keto whipped cream
- For a mostly no-bake keto recipe, you can enjoy it like I do in my keto cookie dough bars
- You can use these delicious Nut Clusters as a crunchy garnish
- Make a sandwich with my Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
- Add a bit of a salty crunch by enjoying it with a few salted peanuts
