Keto Cranberry Mousse for an Elegant Holiday Dessert

There’s one thing you can always find in my freezer and that is bags of fresh cranberries! I live in an area surrounded by cranberry farms and and when I drive by those large red flooded fields of cranberries, I know it’s time to stock up!

Are Cranberries Keto?

Many people are surprised how easy it is to fit cranberries into a keto lifestyle. The nutritional benefits of cranberries are impressive and you can read those details in Medical News Today.

Fresh Cranberries are low in carbs and high in fibre. One cup of cranberries has only 50 calories,  12g carbs and 5g fibre. So for this recipe, that is only 7 net carbs spread over 12 servings.

This does not apply to dried cranberries which are typically loaded with sugar. It is much better to dry your own in the oven or a dehydrator.

One thing I love about cranberries is that with their intense flavor, a little goes a long way.

Tips, Tricks and Hacks when making Keto Cranberry Mousse

  • You can make individual desserts or spread cranberry cheese mixture over a crust to make a cheesecake (see image below for basic almond crust)
  • If you want the dessert to be super smooth, blend the cranberries using either a food processor or strong blender like a Vitamix
  • The dessert is just as good if the cranberries are left a little chunky so don’t fuss if you can’t get it super smooth
  • If using frozen cranberries, be sure to completely defrost them first
