Important Notes About Ingredients:
Peanut butter: Smooth and creamy peanut butter, with no added sugar. Avoid using crunchy or the natural kind, as it will be harder to whip.
Cream cheese: Full fat and softened cream cheese. You can also use dairy free cream cheese.
Powdered sweetener: Don’t waste your money buying expensive packaged varieties, make your own homemade sugar free powdered sugar.
Vanilla extract: Optional, but adds a lovely touch of vanilla.
Heavy cream: Either standard or heavy whipping cream can be used.
How do you make a peanut butter mousse?
Start by adding the peanut butter, cream cheese, powdered sweetener, and vanilla extract, if using it, into a large mixing bowl. Using a hand or stick mixer, beat together until combined. Next, add the heavy cream into a separate bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently beat 1/4 of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Fold through another 1/2 of it, before adding the remaining cream until combined.
Now, transfer the peanut butter mousse into a piping bag with a star tip attached. Pipe the mousse into serving glasses or mason jars and refrigerate for 30 minutes, to firm up.
Tips to make the best low carb peanut butter mousse
You can prepare this mousse up to 3 days in advance. Omit any extra toppings (e.g. crushed peanuts or whipped cream) until you are ready to serve it.
Don’t add all the whipped cream at once- Do it in batches so it keeps the whipped peanut butter airy and light.
If you’d like to make this peanut free, swap out the peanut butter for either smooth almond butter or tahini.
Storing and freezing the peanut butter mousse
The mousse should always be stored in the refrigerator, covered. It will keep well for up to 2 weeks.
Cover the mousse completely and store them in the freezer, for up to 6 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
