Dark chocolate avocado mousse

Who doesn’t love chocolate mousse – and it’s even easier to enjoy this devilishly delicious dark chocolate avocado mousse knowing it’s also healthy.

We all know that avocado is a great source of healthy fats and omega 3’s but dark chocolate also has a huge variety of health benefits (check out my article on it here). This recipe also uses honey instead of sugar and so it’s a treat you can enjoy without putting on a load of weight.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 medium avocados, ripe and squishy with pips and skins removed
  • ½ cup full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • grated chocolate or cocoa powder for serving

Instructions:

  1. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water and bring the water up to a simmer.
  2. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over the water and allow the chocolate to melt.  
  3. Make sure that not even one drop of water gets into the melting chocolate as this will destroy the consistency.
  4. When the dark chocolate is melted and smooth remove from the water and set aside for 5-10 minutes to cool slightly.
  5. In a high-speed blender or food processor place all the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  6. If the mixture is too thick to blend, add a tablespoon or two of additional coconut milk until the desired consistency is reached.
  7. Refrigerate the mixture for 30-45 minutes until it is chilled.
  8. You can scoop it into bowls as is or fill a pastry bag with a large star tip and pipe into small bowls for a more decorative look.
  9. Serve with a light dusting of cocoa powder or some grated chocolate.
  10. Enjoy your scrumptious, guilt-free and healthy dark chocolate avocado mousse.
