Chocolate Avocado Mousse

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


Units Scale
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 2 avocados
  • 110 ml thickened cream
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Coarsely chop 180g (6oz) dark chocolate and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate, stirring with a metal spoon until chocolate is smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. Finely grate remaining chocolate.
  2. Cut avocados in half and scoop into a blender. Reserve avocado shells. Add melted chocolate, cream, maple syrup and vanilla to blender and process until smooth.
  3. Spoon mixture into avocado shells. Sprinkle with grated chocolate.


  • This healthier dessert is super creamy, and will also help you get plenty of healthy fats and an extra serve of fruit/veg.
  • You can serve the mousse in the avocado skin but this is totally not necessary!
  • Tip: Use a dry metal spoon when stirring the chocolate as moisture in wooden spoons can cause the chocolate to seize (go hard and grainy).
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
