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.

    Did anyone notice with the “Milk” ingredient. It no longer becomes vegan ?

      Are you talking about the coconut milk, Mark? Coconut milk is not from an animal and is vegan. Let me know if I can answer any other questions!

    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.

      I always have trouble finding good avocados as well!! While it is a bit caloric it’s made with real ingredients so a little goes a long way.
