Low Carb Keto Strawberry Mousse

A dairy free Keto strawberry mousse recipe that only needs 7 minutes prep. I'm using coconut cream instead of heavy whipping cream , which means this low carb mousse is wonderfully creamy yet light and airy.

Instructions

Use coconut cream from a tin/can. If you cannot source it, go for canned coconut milk. Place the can in the fridge so the cream and the liquid separates. Use only the firm white parts. 
Recipe works with fresh and frozen strawberries.
You can replace the coconut cream with whipped double/heavy cream or mascarpone.
