Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Avocado Mousse - An Apple a Day

I love this dessert, so much so, I’ve been known to have it for breakfast on those mornings I just don’t have time to organise myself (I just dial down the dates). By using avocado to make this mousse, you’re not only nourishing your body with healthy fats, you’re alsoΒ topping up your stores of biotin, vitamin B6, vitamin K and folate; whilst cacao boosts your intake of magnesium. The best part? It tastes great πŸ™‚Β

Avocado Mousse - An Apple A Day

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 people 1x


  • 2 large ripe avocados (Hass works best)
  • 1/3 cup cacao
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. natural vanilla extract
  • 6 fresh organic dates OR maple/honey/rice malt syrup to taste (no more than 1/4 cup)
  • 1 pinch celtic sea salt


  1. If you have decided on fresh dates, remove pits before soaking them in the coconut milk for 10-15 minutes prior to processing. This will soften them so they ensure the final texture is smooth and creamy πŸ™‚ 
  2. Once soaking is complete, combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process the mixture until it resembles a velvety smooth texture. Transfer to small bowls before serving πŸ™‚ 


The success of this dessert will depend on the ripeness of the avocado and the variety selected. You may need to adjust sweetness slightly each time you make this recipe. I find Hass avocados work best.
