avocado chocolate dessert mousse recipes Oct 25, 2023

Avocadoes are in season, cheap and delicious right now, so I wanted to show you a way you can use them up that isn't a salad! This mousse is super rich and totally yum, but the best part is it's packed with fibre, polyphenols (both of which our gut bugs love), and has a natural mood boosting effect thanks to the cacao. Cacao is also a wonderful source of magnesium and provides some iron too.

As it is very rich, a little goes a long way and it pairs perfectly with fresh berries and mint for more of a nutritional punch! Enjoy.

Serves 6-8


2 x ripe avocados

½ cup cacao powder

200ml coconut cream

4 x Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in hot water for 10 minutes

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

To serve: Mint leaves and strawberries


Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. If needed add 1-2 tablespoons of water. Adjust sweetener if preferred. Serve straight away or set in the fridge for at least 1 hour and serve with fresh mint leaves and strawberries. *Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.
