Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Is there anything the humble avocado can't do? I don't know about you, but I am avocado obsessed! I could eat an avocado everyday and not get tired of them. They are so versatile and are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and yes- dessert! 

This vegan version of chocolate mousse may be my favorite. So healthy, and full of heart healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. I was in heaven! I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder since I am a fan of super dark chocolate. But you may want to try regular cocoa powder if you are more of a milk chocolate fan. 

This mousse comes together super quick in a food processor and is even more delicious when chilled before eating. 

I piped the mousse into fun chocolate cups I made using mini balloons. Make sure to temper the chocolate before dipping your balloons and once the chocolate hardens pop and remove the balloons. 🎈


3 ripe avocados

6 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup

1 tablespoon Göod Berry Co. Elderberry Syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/2 teaspoon instant espresso (coffee brings out the flavor notes of chocolate) 


Slice avocados in half and remove pits. Scoop out avocado flesh and place in food processor. Add all remain ingredients and blend on high speed for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides and then blend again on high until all ingredients are full combines and you have a rich chocolate pudding texture. 

Put avocado mousse into a separate bowl, cover and let chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. 

Pipe or spoon into desired vessel. Garnish with fresh or frozen berries, coconut, almond butter, sprinkles or whatever you have on hand. Enjoy!
