Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place all ingredients in food processor. Process until extremely smooth. (You can't over-process this one, so do keep going until it's perfectly mousse-like!)
  • 2. Spoon mousse into individual dishes and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before eating.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

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 Holly,

The avocados are for creaminess - you can do cashews instead - but you will need to do it in the blender instead.

maybe 1/3 cup cashews should do it - or maybe 1/2 cup somewhere in between there

I have been wanting to try an avocado chocolate "pudding" for some time, but I was hesitant to give it a shot. When I found this recipe online, I finally decided to give it a try, due to the apparent simplicity. Thank you for not disappointing me! The mousse was delicious, truly a treat. I will make this again and again!

Can I substitute banana with something else?

I don't recommend it, but if you must use something else instead of the banana then there are two things to consider: Banana is used for creaminess and sweetness.

For the creaminess, you can add another avocado instead.
But you will need to add something else to sweeten it, like dates and/or a sweetener (agave/maple syrup/honey etc)

I've made this recipe 3 times now. The first time I was so surprised just how delicious it was. The second time I made the mistake of using frozen banana (all I had) which made the mousse granular. The third time I added some orange essence - delicious! Next I want to try peppermint essence. You could almost use it as frosting, it's so rich! The boyfriend loves it too. And my brother (using maple syrup, as he's vegan).

Rich , creamy texture. This is even richer than "real chocolate" mousse- might try adding the vanilla or orange zest next time.

I use the large green Florida avocados for my sweet dishes. These avocados have a very light flavor, are naturally sweet and seem to complement dessert recipes.

Yum Gail! I am ashamed to admit it, but I have no idea what kind of avocados I use. I live in a small rural area and I just tend to buy whatever they have in store. I am curious now to try different types!

I added a touch of vanilla to enhance the chocolate. I love the simplicity of your recipes. It's encouraging me to go raw again. Thanks for your work!!
I have been eating raw cacao for years...I will check out the info on toxicity, but I'm sceptical.

I omitted on tablespoon of the coacoa and used 1 tablespoon vanilla powder, so incredible! I made it in the past, but I must agree, the vanilla gives it something!
