Chocolate Avocado Mousse.

Believe me, you are going to want to make this recipe right now. Like immediately.

Most likely you've seen these on the internet before, but believe me, this one is amazing.

Avocados are a special diet girl's best friend when it comes to making desserts. And I'm soooo excited to bring more of them to you in the near future.

I already have these multiple healthy avocado recipes including Grasshopper BarsAvocado Lime Pudding, and Chocolate Avocado Truffles on my site, and today, we're adding this delectable, dark, and rich Chocolate Avocado Mousse.

After trying this recipe you are for sure going to want to stock up on avocados when they are on sale and follow my instructions for freezing avocados so you can whip up this pudding anytime a heavy duty chocolate craving hits.

Can you say Yum?

The Birth 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 question. 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 a 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.

MMMMMMMM…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 Mousse. 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?

You Choose!

So I did intend 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 Chocolate Avocado Pudding treat. OR you can let it chill for at least an hour in the fridge and then you will have a heavenly Chocolate Avocado Mousse.

Mmmmmmm…

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, 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.

Too much Sweetener?

If you look at this recipe, it calls for a bunch of sweetener. I tried making this chocolate avocado mousse with varying amounts of sweeteners and found that this was the perfect blend of xylitol and stevia. 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 down if you like.

I'd be interested in hearing what you end up using!

  1. 12 scoops? of Stevia – when did a scoop become a measure?
    What amount, measurement, size, Is a Scoop? of Stevia? Thanks

    • 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.

    I love chocolate mousse and the addition of avocado is genius!

  3. Jereann Zann says:

    I love avocado and this looks terrific! Great tips too for freezing avocados!

  4. Alisa Fleming says:

    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!

  5. amanda -runtothefinish says:

    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!

  6. How much Stevia is this? How big is a scoop?

  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!!!

    • 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!

  9. How much is 110 g cocoa

  10. Do you have links for the cocoa powder, stevia extract and xylitol that you prefer to use?

    • 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!

  11. Denise Ordiway says:

    1 and a half cups of sugar? That sounds like an awful lot!

    • 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!

  12. Thanks for this recipe!!!! My wife made this and it was AWESOME!!!!!
