Hot Chocolate Mousse

{Sugar Free, Dairy Free Option, Gluten Free, Low Calorie, Low Fat}


Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mousse is the perfect sugar free treat that you won’t have any guilt over not sharing. It is light and airy. This is also gluten free with a dairy free option.

This Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mousse is made with almond milk and glucomannan as its thickening agent. Together with flavors of chocolate and vanilla blend into the perfect dessert or snack.

I topped mine with cacao nibs because I’m kind of obsessed with them right now. If you like dark chocolate, you need to check them out. They can be eaten raw, but we are enjoying them sprinkled on desserts and oatmeal for a special touch.

My husband and daughter both were impressed with how simple it was to make and how delicious the final product is. Sometimes you want to taste of hot chocolate without the heat. This will be the perfect dessert for just that occasion.

For Trim Healthy Mama’s: This recipe makes 2 large servings and would be a Fuel Pull snack or dessert because it is low in fat and carbs. Enjoy!

  6. This looks so smooth and luscious. Thanks for sharing your recipe at Sweet and Savoury Sundays, we’d love for you to link up again this weekend.

  7. just a heads up – omitting the cottage cheese won’t make it dairy free since Greek yogurt is a dairy product. Using coconut milk yogurt might be an alternative to make it genuinely dairy free.

  8. So I just made this tonight for my Fiance and I. It turned out ok any suggestion on how to get the lumps out? I tried adding the gluccie slowly (which I think is what the lumps are), but I maybe didn’t add it slowly enough? Also it seems some what slimmy verses fluffy…any suggestions? TIA!

    • Oh no! Yeah, I would guess the lumps are the glucci. Are you using you mixer with a whisk attachment? That was what really changed the consistency for me. When I was using any other method, it wouldn’t allow enough air to mix in and wouldn’t have the same consistency. With the clumps… I’m trying to think why it would clump. I add the glucci while the whisk is still turning probably at a medium speed. I hope this helps!

  9. I just made this & it is pretty good. However, I have read & reread the recipe & can ‘t figure out for the life of me why it is called Hot Chocolate Mousse when it is actually eaten cold. Can you shed some light on this? Thx

  10. YUMM. . .just made this in blender on low — using carob — too late in the evening for chocolate. Did not refrigerate — ate immediately. YUMM.

  11. Only sugar free if you use unsweetened almond milk. Regular almond milk is high in sugar, which is why I stopped buying it.

  14. I’m out of gluccie…. would xantham gum work instead? Have you tried this in a blender? I have a stand mixer, but thinking it may not work as well as a kitchen aid would. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
