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.

So good eat mine with blueberries and some Greek yoghurt. So easy to make and tastes better than real chic mousse !!

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?

This one is the "smooth operator" chocolate mousse! I added one more small banana and unsweetened coconut flakes to the mix. After it cools off in the fridge, I'll mix in a handful of dried cranberries or just dip my strawberries in it 😋

Best mousse recipe - EVER!! Before having to go gluten-free/dairy-free/peanut-free, I made chocolate mousse with milk/cream/butter. The texture wasn't near as firm and silken as this! It's DIVINE - and nutritious, too!! Amazing!! I doubled the recipe, and am having a hard time keeping from eating all of it in one sitting...oh, my!!

Hi Laura-Jane, I L<3ve this recipe but my family isn't really into it because you can really taste the banana. Can you suggest the ingredient that I could use to maybe replace the banana for them but still get that nice foamy creamy texture?
Thank you so much, and keep up with good work, I absolutely adore your recipes!!

Love,
Karmen

Hi Karmen!

A couple of thoughts:

1. If your bananas was over-ripe (getting pretty brown), it might have been abnormally banana-flavory... which is not good.

2. If your banana was NOT over-ripe and it was still too banana-ish for you, try using another avocado instead of the banana - plus, if you do that, you might want to add some more sweetener (dates, maple syrup etc) to compensate for the lack of naturally-occurring sugar from the bananaa if you omit it.

Hi Debra!

The nutritional info here at www.therawtarian.com is all custom, so I am not able to provide this for you.

However, I think if you use WordPress there are probably some nutritional info plugins that you can use :)

I tried a different avocado raw cacao powder mousse recipe that didn't have bananas in and it was a revelation! I am intrigued by use of bananas in this recipe as it will add fiber and nutrients - however, I would like to know whether the taste of the banana will be too overpowering? Thanks!

Not at all, Sara! Banana provides sweetness and creaminess rather than flavor. Try it and let me know what you think. (and of course the riper the banana is, the more powerful the flavor will be, so avoid those over-ripe bananas!)

I don't have a food processor, can a blender be used instead?

You certainly can use a food processor for this recipe, Ashley!
