Guac-Chocolate Mousse
Recipe type: Healthy dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
While avocado is responsible for the oh-so-creamy texture, the cocoa powder adds that rich and decadent chocolate sensation—and together they create this super light, rich and fluffy mousse!
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli baking chips)
  • 1 large ripe avocado, peeled and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder (if you like a less chocolatey mousse, use a tad less)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk, divided in half
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, (for a less traditional mousse with a twist try a fruit flavored extract or mint extract or 1 -2 mint leaves for Guac-Mint Chocolate Mousse ;))
  1. In a blender, add the avocado and cocoa powder
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute with a microwave safe bowl. Then at 15 second intervals to prevent burning, microwave adding splashes of water as needed to keep the consistency smooth until the chocolate is melted.
  3. Add the melted chocolate to the blender, half of the almond milk and vanilla extract to the avocado.
  4. Blend ingredients together until smooth, adding in more almond milk if needed.
  5. Pour the creamy, rich , yet airy and light mousse evenly into small ramekins or bowls. You can eat as is, or freeze for a few minutes to eat chilled or store in fridge cool but sweet treat!
