Avocado Cacao Mousse Recipe - raw & vegan

Gorgeous, rich and silky dark raw chocolate mousse. A delicious, delicately chocolatey sweet makes a perfect dessert.


4 ripe avocados
1/3 cup raw coconut nectar
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder)
pinch of salt
fresh fruit and nuts for garnish


In the bowl of a blender or food processor, blend avocado until smooth. Add all other ingredients, blending until mixture is uniform. Chill for about 2 hours in the fridge or half an hour in the freezer. Garnish with fresh fruit or chopped nuts.

Serves 4-6.

Author's note on the recipe:
If you want to try this recipe, but don't have the raw coconut sweetener or cacao powder on hand (they are specialty type of items I wanted to try), agave, honey and unsweetened cocoa powder are fine-tasting substitutes. The mousse will no longer be strictly raw, but it is still delicious! And it retains the spirit of the dish.
