Chocolate Avocado Mousse (vegan)
Chocolate Avocado Mousse is an easy, healthy dessert recipe that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! Whipped up in minutes with just a handful of ingredients in your blender, this rich pudding is vegan, Paleo and lovely!
Servings: 4 servings
- 2 medium ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder or cacao powder
- 1/3 cup maple syrup or to taste
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon optional
Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits with a spoon. Scoop the avocado flesh into a blender.
Add remaining ingredients to the blender. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides a few times to ensure that everything is evenly blended into the mousse.
Taste the mousse and add more maple syrup if need to reach your desired taste preference. Blend again if more sweetener is added.
Divide avocado mousse into 4 small jars, cups, or containers. You can enjoy immediately but I find it best if chilled in fridge for at least an hour. Or save it for up to 2 days in your fridge. When ready to enjoy, top with whipped coconut cream, berries or chocolate chips.
