Recipe: Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate and avocado are one hundred percent, definitely counted among the foods I love most. So I was very excited when I found this recipe and I just had to try out. It is very easy to make and so tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe Hass avocado
  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate, or 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt or fleur de sel

Directions

In a double broiler, or in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate with the coconut milk, stirring until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.

In a food processor, combine all ingredients until creamy, then add chocolate mixture and blend until smooth. (As I don’t have a food processor, a normal hand mixer will work too – although you have to be really thorough to make sure there are no lumps of avocado left.

Spoon or pipe into dessert cups. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top of each one. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
