2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup or honey (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup milk (dairy or dairy-free)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Whipped cream or coconut whipped cream
Blend the Avocados:
In a food processor or blender, combine the ripe avocados, unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup (or honey), milk, pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Blend Until Smooth:
Blend the ingredients until the mixture is completely smooth and all the ingredients are well combined. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor a couple of times to ensure even mixing.
Taste and Adjust:
Taste the mousse and adjust the sweetness with more maple syrup or honey, if needed.
If you prefer the mousse to be chilled, cover the mixture and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to an hour before serving. Chilling will enhance the flavor and texture.
Divide the chocolate avocado mousse into serving dishes or glasses. You can top it with whipped cream or coconut whipped cream, fresh berries, or shaved chocolate for added flavor and presentation.
Serve and enjoy your creamy and healthy Chocolate Avocado Mousse.
This delicious mousse is gluten-free, dairy-free if you use a dairy-free milk, and a great way to enjoy a rich and chocolatey dessert with the added creaminess of avocados.
