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. Looks to me that 6 Tbsp of the Gentle Sweet would work for the xylitol and about 9 Tbsp for the stevia. Hope it works out! I would work w/ that and do it to taste.

  1. 5 stars
    This is THE BEST! No avocado taste and super easy. I used almond milk with mine. This recipe is a keeper!

  2. 5 stars
    OMG!!! Amazing! I did add 1tsp of Torani sugar free vanilla syrup + 3 TBS of heavy whipping cream, Keto friendly…. It totally masked the avocado taste!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe I will definitely be making this again!
    11tbs= 2/3cup

    1. No, it’s not. The avocados tend to need quite a bit of sweetener, but you are welcome to try using less if you like.

  3. I’ll definitely do this recipe! I found out my son was allergic to milk 2 years ago and chose to continue breastfeeding, so I had to do dairy free diet. But sometimes I NEED chocolate! Loved to find your blog! Lots of information and very nice to read! Congratulations!

    1. Thanks! Hope you like it!!! We had the same problem! You can read more about it here but it was more than just dairy!!

    1. They can really vary in strength (as can all stevia). I would look up a conversion chart online and use it to taste. Enjoy!

  4. 12 scoops? of Stevia – when did a scoop become a measure?
    What amount, measurement, size, Is a Scoop? of Stevia? Thanks

    1. Hello Holly.

      Thanks for reading. I have been using scoops as a measurement for most of my stevia recipes b/c there is typically a small 1/32 tsp scoop in many stevia extract containers as a 1/32 tsp (1 scoop) is hard to measure. I have a link in that line in the recipe to a post that talks about how to use stevia.

      I just updated the measurement for the stevia for this post and might go back and do it for others since we are going to be trying to get nutrition facts for the recipes and that would be a necessary change. Thanks and hope that is helpful.

  5. I like mine as a mousse! I have to agree on the sweetener, too. I’ve found that several avocado pudding recipes are under-sweetened and end up with a strange taste since avocado can assert itself a little!

  6. I made a version of this a few years ago and totally forgot how yummy it was!! I will have to bust out my avocado skills again to try it!

  7. I love experimenting with avocado dessert recipes. Looking forward to trying your version of the mousse as I’m still looking for one I really like. I’ve made your Chocolate Mint Grasshopper Bars and my family liked them a lot. The mint seems to cover the avocado taste well.

  8. Hi. I’d like to try this, but you have mixed several measurements! 3/4 cup and then 110g? How much, in cups/ Tablespoons is 110g???
    And is that 11 TABLESPOONS of xylitol? Sounds like an awful lot! PLUS STEVIA??? REALLY?
    When avocados come down in price, I’ll definitely try this…I’ve seen many chocolate/avocado recipes, just not sure if mixing them is a taste I want: LOVE avocados, LOVE chocolate, just not sure the combination is something I’m going to like, but I do want to try this!!!

    1. Hi there. I updated the post w/ the amount of cocoa. Yes, it’s a lot of sweetener. Of course, you can adjust it to your taste but this version has been taste tested and approved. Hope you like it as much as we do. Another chocolate avocado recipe (or two) coming soon!

      1. Adrienne: do you tend to like your desserts sweeter or less sweet?
        Just trying to see if I could add less sweetener…can’t stand stevia…I’ve TRIED, but it’s a no-go. I will try Bocha Sweet and/or allulose, both low/0 glycemic.
        Thanks for the recipe!

        1. Hi Carol! I tend to like them more sweet but that is changing some these days. You might taste the avocado but it will depend on the cocoa that you use as well. Would love to hear how it goes for you.

    1. Hi Dawn – thanks for reading! I just updated the post with links. The cocoa – I just picked an organic one. I don’t have a favorite right now – I loved the one at Costco that they stock in the winter but it’s not organic. I just bought Azure’s this month and am going to try more brands so I chose a reasonably priced organic one for you. Hope you like it!

    1. Hello Denise. It is a lot but of course if you are using stevia it isn’t. I just added some information in the post to address this concern. You can of course dial the sweetener down if you like but we thought this version was just right. Enjoy and thanks for reading!
