Sugar-Free Coffee Creme Mousse is a no bake low carb dessert that even a non low carb eater will fall in love with!
What is Coffee Crema?
Crema is the most amazing, robust, flavorful foam that rests on the surface of a shot of perfectly brewed espresso. If you don't see foam, it could be the result of using stake coffee beans. The foam tastes like you added some luscious cream to your coffee. Caffe Crema is probably all over Europe, but in particular enjoyed in Italy where my family is from. This past spring we traveled to Rome, Florence, Sicily and Capri and coffee crema was enjoyed every chance we got! In Florence, they have coffee shops with simple espresso bars because so many have their lunch break and pop in quickly to enjoy an espresso. This dessert was inspired by my travels with my family and it is luscious, even if you don't like to drink coffee, I bet you'll love this dessert!
Quick Coffee Mousse
With just 6 ingredients and no baking needed, this is a tasty mousse that can be enjoyed with your afternoon tea or coffee! It doesn't need any special ingredients, most likely you have all the ingredients on hand in your kitchen. The mixture consists of 3 types of cream which makes this incredibly decadent with a soothing mouthfeel.
Tools to Make Coffee Creme Mousse
Blender-I use my Vitamix blender almost daily to make my morning coffee with collagen added. A high-powered blender is a fabulous addition to your low carb keto kitchen.
Stand Mixer-For this recipe, using the mixer or hand held electric mixer to combine the heavy cream and coffee mixture, makes for a very smooth texture.
Ramekins- I use ramekins for many recipes, like my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake and my Red Velvet Mug Cake and even my 2 Minute English Muffin.

- Spoon into two serving glasses or ramekins. Chill for 1 hour or overnight. Top with crushed coffee beans and shaved chocolate if desired when ready to serve.
I made this recipe today and was a little disappointed. The ingredients would not whip up no matter how long I had it in the mixer. So it was a runny mess.
Would this work with mascarpone instead of ricotta?
Gonna try this! But, chocolate......can this be chocolatized?
I replaced stevia with erythritol and it was tasty. However only a part of it got creamy. Underneath it was this coffee liquid Any ideas of what I did wrong?
Thanks (love the recipes).
Probably the heavy cream did not get whipped thick enough at the end after adding in the coffee mixture. Sorry you had trouble.
I just found this recipe tonight, I don't have all the ingredients, I will definitely make this recipe tomorrow.
I don't care for ricotta or cottage cheese, can I substitute cream cheese?
Awee *sniff sniff* I was so excited to print and try this out ...
