What makes this raw chocolate mousse recipe so special? The addition of avocado gives it that fluffy, mousse-like texture. And to get the full effect of the texture, you'll want to refrigerate it for at least 1 hour before noshing on it!

Note that the coconut oil is an important ingredient - it's what helps the mousse harden up a bit in the fridge.

Because this is such a small recipe, it whips up best when made in a food processor.

For extra flavor and fun, add fresh berries to your mousse when eating!

PS: Make sure your banana and avocado are fresh and at the peak of perfection.

Hi Claudia!
Glad to hear it is yummy! I want to make it soon as well!

How long did it take for you to grow the avocado and banana trees? I really want to grow them because I am obsessed with avocados and bananas (among other things!).... I live in California. Do you think it would grow well here?

Thanks!
-Grace :)

P.S. Roughly how many servings does this make?

How many do you think this serves? For a normal person? :P Would you say this could serve 4? Or 1? Haha, thanks :)

Ammmazing! Love it! Everyone in my home benefits from this recipe;)

So easy to make. I only discovered it recently and I can't tell you how many times I've made it already. I'd say the recipe serves 4!

Thank You

Sorry, Brittany, the coconut oil is necessary as it helps to thicken and/or solidify certain recipes. In this case you can omit the coconut oil - the pudding just won't be as thick.

I have some avid banana haters in my house. If I wanted to leave the banana out, would you recommend just adding more avocado? or more coconut oil? Or upping both a little? Thanks in advance!

I'd say, go for this one instead :) It is called an "icing" but if you refrigerate it it'll be mousse-like :) https://www.therawtarian.com/raw-chocolate-icing

I don't have a food processor and the only "blender" that I have is the Nutribullet.. Any tips? Maybe mix by hand?

Tasted the mix out of the food processor as did Mr 5. I did mine with the addition of a blood orange (rind and juice).....jaffa mousse.....passed the taste test with flying colours!! 8 serves in the fridge (I doubled recipe using 3 med avos and 2 lg bananas) chilling for family dinner for 8 tomorrow night. BRING it ON!

Yep - sure was.....so much so that my brother made it for his GF and him (both there for mine) next day and I made it for the kids yesterday (with orange again). We served with frozen raspberries on top for the family thing and fresh strawbs last night for the kids.

Would a vitamix instead of food processor work with this recipe?

Hi Josie,

A food processor is recommended, but yes, this is one of the few recipes that would work in a VM or a FP.

Laura Jane,

This is so fabulous. Made it for a picnic this weekend and going to use it for a cooking class on Friday. My husband says it reminds him of his mother's Dutch chocolate pudding recipe in which she would add orange zest to. I will try that next time...
Thank you, thank you, thank you! The Rawtarian is my go-to everyday and I appreciate it so much.

What is the big difference between this and your avacado choco pudding, taste-wise?
