Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Total Time:
10 mins
Creamy, rich healthy Avocado Chocolate Mousse made with avocado, dark chocolate, and maple syrup. You can't taste the avocado! Paleo, vegan and gluten free.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate — or chocolate chips, at least 60% dark, about 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons
  • 2 large ripe avocados — (about 8 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup  Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon  kosher salt
  • Optional: 1–3 teaspoons light agave nectar — or maple syrup, OK to substitute pure maple syrup, though the flavor will change somewhat
  • For serving: fresh raspberries — sliced strawberries, whipped cream (or whipped coconut cream to keep vegan), chocolate shavings

Instructions

  1. Place the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring between each and watching carefully so that the chocolate does not burn. When the chocolate is almost completely melted, remove it from the microwave and stir until smooth. Set aside and let cool until just barely warm.
  2. Halve and pit the avocados, then scoop them into a food processor fitted with a steel blade or high-powered blender. Add the melted chocolate, cocoa powder, Almondmilk Cashewmilk blend, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend until very smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed. Taste and add a few teaspoons of agave if additional sweetness is desired. Spoon into glasses. Enjoy immediately as a pudding, or for a thicker, mousse-like consistency, refrigerate until well chilled, 2 hours or overnight. Serve topped with raspberries, cream, and chocolate shavings.

Recipe Notes

  • The mousse can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 1 week.
