Whiskey is Low FODMAP

Whiskey is low FODMAP in portions of 30 ml. It flavors this Low FODMAP Irish Whisky Chocolate Mousse and you will taste it – so reserve this recipe for whiskey lovers.

Dark Chocolate is Low FODMAP

Dark chocolate is low FODMAP in 30 g portions. Each serving of this mousse contains 21.25 g. We recommend that you use a dark chocolate that does not include dairy, as there is plenty of dairy in this dish with the heavy cream.

Heavy Cream is Low FODMAP – Or You Can Use Lactose-Free

Heavy cream is low FODMAP in ½ cup (60 g) portions in a whipped status. We just use a small dollop on top of the mousse, as a delectable creamy, smooth, rich topping.

Buy lactose-free heavy cream, if you can. Or, make your own following our simple DIY directions. Check out our article DIY Lactose-Free Dairy.

Raw Eggs

This chocolate mousse recipe uses raw eggs, which many traditional chocolate mousse recipes do.

You have two choices here. You can use fresh, raw eggs, which is recommended for those with healthy immune systems and not recommended for the very young, the elderly or those who are pregnant.

If you are concerned, you can buy pasteurized eggs and then you don’t have to worry.

Makes: 12 servings

Author: Dédé Wilson


  • 9 ounces (255 g) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, preferably about 60 % cacao mass, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) brewed coffee
  • 3 tablespoons whiskey
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream; use lactose-free if possible


  1. Combine chocolate, brewed coffee and whiskey in a small saucepan and heat over very low heat, whisking gently, until the chocolate is about three-quarters of the way melted. Remove from heat and allow residual heat to melt chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool until just warm.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. Gently whisk in the chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Beat the egg whites until peaks form with electric mixer. Fold about a quarter of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it up, then fold in the remaining egg whites.
  4. Divide chocolate mousse into 12 small serving dishes and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to overnight.
  5. Right before serving, whip the cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and top each chocolate mousse with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve to oohs and aahs.


  • If you are concerned about egg safety, buy and use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.
