While this rich and creamy chocolate mousse happens to be vegan, I actually didn’t make it because of any dietary restrictions or preferences.

The truth? I had recently played the avocado lotto and had several ripe beauties ready and waiting to be used so I decided to use it as an excuse to make a healthy chocolate mousse recipe.

Traditionally made with heavy cream, egg yolks and sugar, my version is made with omega-3 rich avocados, creamy coconut milk and dark chocolate.

In typical Liz fashion, I couldn’t resist adding in a pinch of warm cinnamon to complement the cocoa powder. Espresso powder would work well also.

Your spoon is waiting.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • To melt the chocolate chips, create a double boiler by placing a bowl on top of a pan filled with 3 inches of simmering water. Gently stir the chocolate chips until they are fully melted then remove from heat. 
  • Place the pitted avocados, milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a high speed food processor and pulse until smooth. Pour in melted chocolate and pulse once again until everything is evenly incorporated. 
  • Pour mixture into four serving dishes or glasses and refrigerate until firm, a minimum of 3 hours. Serve with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream if you wish. 

Notes

If you don’t have chocolate chips on hand a roughly chopped chocolate baking bar will also work.
Serve with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream if you wish.

  1. This sounds delicious; I just wish it were a bit less caloric. And that it was easier to find good avocados. The one thing I miss about southern California is the neighbors with avocado trees.
