Goat cheese is packed with healthy fats, protein, and calcium! What better way to incorporate this wonderful cheese than within an easy to make mousse? This Keto Goat Cheese Mousse with Blackberry Sauce is silky and fluffy. It is further sweetened by healthy blackberries. The softness of the mousse, paired with its sweetness, makes this a lovely and comforting dessert! (Or breakfast. I won’t judge!)
I thought about incorporating chocolate into the goat cheese mixture. Ultimately, I opted not to, simply due to wanting to keep overall carbohydrates lower. However, if you have some carbs to spare, I think it’d be a great idea. You could either add melted chocolate or a couple of tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to the goat cheese mixture. Of course, you’ll want to taste test if you make this change. Cocoa powder, in particular, may require a bit more swerve/sweetener than this recipe has by default.
