Smooth and creamy vegan chocolate avocado mousse.
You’d never guess from the taste that the main ingredient is avocado in this perfectly textured mousse!
Avocado as an ingredient in a dessert?
This dessert is so easy to make! It’s only 7 easy ingredients and you pretty much just add them all to a food processor and process until gloriously smooth.
The main ingredient is of course fresh ripe avocado and then we have cocoa powder, maple syrup or agave, vanilla, coconut cream and salt.
The only thing to watch out for is that the avocado is properly blended in with the rest of the ingredients. Sometimes when you think you’re done and you’re scooping it out into the serving glasses you’ll find some chunks of avocado that didn’t get blended in properly. So make sure it’s all nicely blended in.
1/2 cup (120ml) Maple Syrup or Agave
1/4 cup (60ml) Coconut Cream
2/3 cup (63g) Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Salt
2 Medium to Large Avocados (total flesh weight ~13oz/368g)
Add the maple syrup, coconut cream, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt to the food processor. Then add in the avocado flesh and process until very smooth. Make sure the avocado is properly blended in.
Transfer to 4 serving glasses, top with grated vegan chocolate (optional) and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.
Hope you will enjoy the recipe!
