Healthy Chocolate Mousse

Posted by MelissaE Jul 15, 2011

I feel like I owe a double dose of recipe knowledge today since I haven't been around for a while. Here's a good one I tried last week. It's for a  dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free chocolate mousse. Although the avocados might seem a peculiar ingredient here, do not be fooled. They add the perfect texture to this delicious treat. Enjoy as a dessert or a breakfast with lots of fruit and nuts.


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • Sweetner (I used a combo of 2 pinches of stevia + 3/4 cup of maple syrup, but you can use honey, agave, etc...)
  • 2 tbsn pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raw, unsweetened cacao powder
  • Mint or strawberry garnish


Blend all together. Add fresh mint leaves on top or enjoy with fresh berries.
