The Origin of this Chocolate Avocado Mousse

The other week, one of my college housemates was in town.

We went out for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed catching up on life–and we had a lot of catching up to do. Wow, has the time flown! Her daughter was graduating from a master’s program that weekend and is getting married soon – and she had just come from another graduation of her 2nd daughter….and there is talk of marriage there too. Slow the train down!!

Of course, we enjoyed the food as well. Nums.

We almost never eat out. With the special diets in our family, it’s not that much fun to navigate menus and bother the wait staff with all of our questions. And then typically you end up with something that you could have made much better at home). PLUS I’m the ultra frugal type. There have been so many times in my life when eating out wasn’t an option due to finances that I just don’t think about it as being a normal thing.

The Healthy Dessert Dilemma

The restaurant was amazing. It’s famous in my city for yummy food that’s allergy-friendly–and BOY did it fit the bill. We had to wait for a verrrrrrry long time to get seats (people were literally standing outside for lunch seats at 1:30 in the afternoon), and it was worth it. We spent our time looking at our lunch options, but mostly at the dessert options.

Mmmm…Huge gluten-free cupcakes with heaps of dairy-free frosting, bars, cookies. It all looked amazing. My friend pointed out her favorite–the Chocolate Avocado Pudding. I opted for a DF & GF Chocolate Cheesecake.

More about that later.

Anyhow, after we were finished eating, out the desserts came. We were pretty full, but you know. Dessert has to happen sometimes. Especially when it’s chocolate.  And avocado. When you can have chocolate THIS healthy–it has to happen.

We didn’t eat much of the treats then but sampled them each several times after sharing a bite of our own dessert with each other. I thought my cheesecake was perfection and my friend’s pudding was seriously yummy too.

I’m soooo going to recreate that cheesecake….just you wait. But for now, I tackled the chocolate avocado pudding, thinking it would be easier to handle. And of course, since that lunch date, I have needed healthy chocolate badly so I knew that it had to happen soon.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding. Nailed.

Well, I nailed it. And if I do say so myself, it’s better than the one in the restaurant.

I like my chocolate dark. and sweet. with a little salt. And this is it.

And now you can have it too.

The avocados add such richness to this–they are super health and creamy and you’ll be getting loads of fiber and other nutrients in with your chocolate.

Like we needed a reason to eat more, chocolate, right?

Eat it on its own for a lovely treat, but you’ll want to share some with someone you love. Maybe.

Sharing chocolate is a good thing, but it’s hard. You know what I mean.

It’s great as is, lovely with a dollop of whipped something, or even sprinkles of chocolate powder, shavings, nuts…berries. Whatever your health-chocolate-loving heart desires.

Just make it, and then thank me.

Chocolate Avocado Mousse or Chocolate Avocado Pudding?

Though I intended to make this as a Chocolate Avocado Pudding, but after making it, I made a lovely discovery.

You can indulge in this recipe immediately for a lovely smooth healthy Chocolate Pudding treat. OR you can let it chill for at least an hour in the fridge and then the texture is more like a Chocolate Avocado Mousse.

Either way you have a dessert that you will love and that will love you back. Not only are avocados seriously good for you, but check out how good chocolate is good for you here.

Now, I do have other healthy chocolate recipes on my site, namely this Chocolate Chia Pudding, Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding, Chocolate Truffles, Healthier Chocolate Dip, and also this Chocolate Almond Chip Ice Cream.

Oh, and then don’t forget Dairy-Free Homemade Chocolate Chips.

Shame on me.

So you’d think that would be enough?

Who am I kidding? There can never be enough healthy chocolate!

In fact, I’m working on several more right now.

I say bring on the healthy chocolate. Now. Coupled with some whipped cream.

Adjusting the Sweetener

Yes, this recipe calls for bunch of sweetener. I tried making this chocolate avocado mousse with varying amounts of sweeteners and found that this was the perfect blend of sweeteners. You can read this post on the problem with stevia taste and this one called What Is Stevia to find out more about using stevia and blending it with other sweeteners.

The sweetener is needed to offset the avocado flavor, but of course you can adjust the amount down if you like.

  1. Most recipes from blogs I follow have nutritional information that includes the serving size. It is impossible to calculate what is needed without it …here is an example:

    Nutrition Information:
    Yield: 7 Serving Size: 1/2 cup
    Amount Per Serving: Calories: 33Total Fat: 0gSaturated Fat: 0gTrans Fat: 0gUnsaturated Fat: 0gCholesterol: 0mgSodium: 21mgCarbohydrates: 9gFiber: 2gSugar: 4gProtein: 1g

    Without a SERVING SIZE, you can’t correctly decipher how much to consume to get the listed information! (ie: carbs 9g IN 1/2 CUP)

    Making the “serving size” 1 gram, is ridiculous, as America uses the standard, NOT METRIC, system. And 1 gram is TINY! (1g= 0.2 tsp.)

    Here is another nutritional information from KetoDietApp blog: (she includes metric AND standard as she is located in the UK) She also says that her nutritional information is more accurate than most…
    Nutritional values (per serving, 1 1/4 cup/ 300 ml)
    Net carbs8 grams
    Protein15 grams
    Fat36.1 grams
    Calories429 kcal
    Calories from carbs 8%, protein 14%, fat 78%
    Total carbs9.8 gramsFiber1.8 gramsSugars4.9 gramsSaturated fat21.1 gramsSodium1,233 mg(54% RDA)Magnesium28 mg(7% RDA)Potassium310 mg(15% EMR)

    My reasons for asking for better nutritional information and especially for usable serving sizes is due to being diabetic and needing to know the carb information PER SERVING so I can calculate if the recipe is viable for me (with or without substitutions)
    Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Carol! Would you mind telling me here or privately what site that is? Again, I don’t think I can do it and if I did it would be very time consuming, and since I checked multiple very popular sites and none of them had it I am not sure most people are looking for it, but I can certainly understand why it’s valuable. I did see that Food Network has it at least on some of their recipes and 1 very popular site has it for 1 beverage recipe but I couldn’t find it on any of her other recipes. I’m so sorry! I wish I could promise that I could do this but I’m scrambling as it is. I would have to remake recipes one at a time and I still don’t know that it’s feasible with my recipe system but I can ask. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

  2. 5 stars
    It looks good, but your information on almost all of your recipes, it will list the servings, but not HOW MUCH IS ONE SERVING?
    you should put that information in the recipe.
    Thanks for this, I’ve looked at some avocado chocolate recipes before…..

    1. Hi again, Carol!

      As mentioned on your other comment, I am really sorry that we don’t have that information on the blog. I just checked some not so popular as well as very popular sites, and none of them did either. I would have considered it, but from checking the recipe system that I use (which is widely regarded as the best one for bloggers), it can’t use it since it determines nutritional information from grams, so if I chose a cup for a serving, for example, it will throw everything off. It only seems to be able to determine servings by grams and I would guess for most people that won’t be helpful. In any case, if I do this I would be in the vast minority (couldn’t find a site that did it) and it would take me a ton of time to redo all of these recipes and measure them out. I understand why you would want it so maybe….but I do have to watch what I spend my time on. If you can find a number of other sites that have it please do show me. Thanks!

  3. It would be great if you could advise what is your approximate weight of an avocado… Here we have the small, medium & super-large, all stating they’re Haas avocados. 2 of the small are about the size of the large, so it helps to know how much is the expected amount for the recipe. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi there. I know that’s a bit of a conundrum. Typically 6 ounces is considered to be typical size for a Haas avocado but I don’t know about all the other sizes. Confusing! Hope that helps!

    1. Do you mean I should have them on the blog as an option? If so, there’s a handy calculator that you can use on the recipe card…..sometimes the measurements are a little unwieldy but it does work :). I also hope that means you like them :)!!

      1. Sometimes when you see a new recipe, it’s b/c you have a craving or want to just try it out, and a pre-calculated single serving recipe would be fun!
