  • 2 large ripe Avocados or 4 small ones
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup you could also use honey, etc.
  • 1 Tableaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbspn Milk coconut, almond etc
  • 1-2 Tbspn Coconut Cream


  • Remove the pips from the avocados and scoop the pulp into the food processor/blender.
  • Add the cocoa, maple syrup, vanilla and milk.
  • Blend and blend until all the lumps and bumps are gone... then blend some more.
  • Taste the mousse at this stage. If the taste of avocado is too strong add 1 Tablespoon extra each of cocoa and maple syrup. Blend and retaste. Repeat again if necessary (remembering the taste of the mousse will mellow and improve upon resting)
  • The mousse is great to eat now, but for a lighter consistency transfer to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment.
  • Add the extra milk and whisk for 3 minutes, or until fluffy.
  • The mousse will keep in the fridge for 3 days... but will most likely be eaten much quicker!
