Mint Chocolate Avocado Mousse (vegan + Paleo)
This Mint Chocolate Avocado Mousse is delicious, simple and healthy dessert you can make in minutes! Full of healthy fat from avocados and naturally sweetened, you are going to be licking your blender clean!
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
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon mint extract (depending on how strong you want it)
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 and/or mint extract if needed to reach your desired taste preference. Blend again if more sweetener or extract 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.
