This High Protein Jello Mousse is a low carb dessert, made with just a handful of ingredients. It’s sure to become a standby dessert for those times when you just must have a keto dessert.

Here’s Why This Recipe Works

I’ve been craving sweets lately which is a very slippery slope for me. But it’s also time to put together some healthy treats so I thought I’d try this very simple recipe. Not bad for 20 grams of protein!

Much better than a protein bar in that sense and a lot fewer calories. It would also make a great snack or meal during the soft food and full liquids.

What I like about this recipe is that it’s extremely versatile. You can vary the flavors of jello and have a completely different dessert each day.

Of course, anytime you can have protein for dessert and have it taste good is a win-win all around.

How to Make High Protein Jello Mouse

  1. Heat the water until it’s warm but not boiling.

2. Add the jello mix to the water and let it sit while you gather the other ingredients.

3. Dump the remaining ingredients into the bowl.

4. Blend the ingredients together until smooth.

5. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins and allow it to set.

6. After allowing them to set, enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for Making This High Protein Jello Mousse

  1. The most important thing about getting this recipe right, is to BE PATIENT and make absolutely sure the gelatin is completely dissolved in the water before you start. If you don’t do this, you will have granules in your mousse and that will not be a good thing.
  2. Use a flat silicone whisk or a hand blender to aerate this mousse as much as possible.
  3. Vary the flavors to get different desserts.
  4. Blend for a long time to aerate the dessert and get a light, airy, mousse-like texture.

You will love this Jello Mousse that kills the toughest sweet tooth cravings without feeling deprived of your favorite foods.

Hi there, I’m just wondering if you think it would be okay to use vanilla whey protein powder instead of the unflavoured one. I do have both, but I find in desserts and sweet goods that the vanilla is often nice. Just wondered what your thoughts might be. Thanks – I’m looking forward to trying some of your recipes!

Very satisfying!

I’ve tried similar dessert recipes using sugar free Jello. So yummy but I’ve been told the aspartame kicks you out of ketosis. I’ve resorted to unflavoured gelatin instead and used fruit flavoured water additives that are sweetened with sucralose.

Mine turned out really thick. Yours looks light and airy, like mousse. Wonder what went wrong??

I have a horrible sweet tooth and recently started a diet. I made this and it is really good and curbs the sweet tooth.

I used orange jello and found it needed a bit more flavor. I added some sugar free orange drink powder and a little fresh lemon juice. Mine set up too firm, so I added more Greek yogurt and some sweetener. Next time, I’ll try lemon jello with fresh lemon rind and lemon juice added. This is a great, guilt-free snack! Thank you! I shared the recipe with a low carb group, giving credit to its creator and her site. Also mentioned Urvashi’s wonderful cookbook.

Can you make this without the protein powder ??

Looks interesting – but did you use nonfat or full fat Greek yogurt for the nutritional analysis? I’m sure either version would work in the recipe, but with the full fat there would be a calorie and fat difference.

I believe I used full-fat since that’s all I buy, but I may have to re-check.

Alas, I did not care for it. Too gritty or something?

Karen Farmer says

that looks so yummy!! …and a great change from yet another protein bar

thanks so much for posting, I’m going to have to try this!

Excellent idea!! I mix the premade b.cherry sf jello with fage Greek yogurt and then add a dollop of cool whip on top! Makes for a not too horrible option for dessert. I’m going to have to find some flavorless protein powder to add in!

I love the NOW unflavored one. It doesn’t have that weird protein powder after-taste. You could use it for the protein pudding mix I’ve posted here too. We eat that almost every night. I’ve also used it for the pumpkin “cheesecake” recipe I’ve posted. Yeah, we have like a 5 pounds jar of that stuff at our house 🙂
