Love at First Bite…
This raspberry cheesecake mousse is oozing with love. It’s the perfect dessert for Valentine’s, special anniversaries and stay-at-home date nights.
This raspberry cheesecake mousse tastes so good it’s hard to believe it’s made without sugar!
This low carb sugar-free dessert uses ingredients commonly found in most low carb, keto kitchens. To make it, you’ll need the following:
♥ Fresh and frozen raspberries
♥ Philadelphia cream cheese
♥ Heavy whipping cream
♥ Sugar-free vanilla extract
♥ Sugar-free red velvet baking emulsion
♥ Sugar-free sweeteners (xylitol, erythritol, and EZ-Sweetz)
Using Lorann’s red velvet bakery emulsion adds depth to the berries in this recipe and gives this raspberry cheesecake mousse its gorgeous pink colour. It’s my new secret weapon!
I use my faithful old KitchenAid stand mixer to make this recipe. The one I have is a soft pistachio colour but there are so many shades to choose from. Here’s a small sample. Aren’t they pretty?
Being able to swap between bowls makes mixing a breeze! It’s one of my best buys ever!
I may or may not be known as the kitchen gadget queen. All I can say is having the right equipment makes life in the kitchen a whole lot easier. Buy right—buy once. Works for me!
Spending time in the kitchen is the best place to be—especially when love is in the air—and you’re making something special for the one that you love.
Great food, great company…
A beautiful table set for two. Lights down low. Sultry music playing in the background. It might sound schmaltzy but it’s kinda nice to pull out all the stops now and then, don’t you think?

- Add three more fresh raspberries to each dish
- Remove raspberry syrup from fridge and pour a little over raspberries in each dish, until all the syrup has been used
- Add another layer of cheesecake mixture to each dish, until all of the cheesecake mixture has been used.
