Description

Chocolate Avocado Mousse – This velvety vegan chocolate mousse recipe has all the gorgeous flavor you’re looking for and an ingredient list you’re going to love! (Paleo, dairy-free)

*IMPORTANT NOTE: The ingredients are given in a range since avocados can vary so much in size. You’ll need to play with this a bit to get the flavor right where you want it, depending on the size and ripeness of your avocados. My sweet spot is typically 6 Tbsp. cocoa powder, 7 Tbsp. syrup, 7 Tbsp. milk, 2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/4 tsp. salt.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 medium ripe avocados (pits removed)
  • 67 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 68 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 68 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk (or your favorite)
  • 1 1/22 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/81/4 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. Scoop the avocado into a food processor or blender, discarding the skin and pits.
  2. Add 6 Tbsp. cocoa powder, 6 Tbsp. syrup, 6 Tbsp. milk, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/8 tsp. salt to the food processor.
  3. Puree until the mixture is smooth and velvety, adding additional syrup or milk needed. Taste and add additional syrup, vanilla, or salt as desired.
  4. Transfer mousse to an airtight container and cover.
  5. Chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving, tasting once more once the flavors have had time to develop.
  6. Add additional syrup, vanilla, or salt to adjust flavor, or more milk as needed to loosen the texture.
