Guilt Free Vegan Chocolate Mousse

All The Goodness, None Of The Guilt!


Chocolate mousse
vegan chocolate avocado mousse . Dairy free, sugar free, guilt free

At first, you’re probably thinking – chocolate mousse made with avocado – Gross! But wait for it.. To make the traditional chocolate mousse, eggs and heavy cream are needed. This makes it hard for people like me on the “team dairy-free” to truly enjoy this divine dessert. My boyfriend and a lot of my friends are part of those team members, so I make sure to make it in a way that we all can enjoy. And believe me when I say, this chocolate mousse is so good, no one will know it’s healthy nor dairy-free. My boyfriend’s father (Pete) is a difficult one when it comes to trying out anything healthy, he will absolutely not budge and refuses anything that may sound like it has fruits, veggies or anything healthy in it! – If only he knew 😉

This avocado chocolate mousse is super creamy, dairy-free, vegan, refined sugar-free, and very chocolatey, which has been a big part of my life for years now. You do not taste the avocado AT ALL. Not even Pete knew he was eating avocado! The avocados are purely used to make this mousse thick and creamy. It also adds in healthy fats and fiber so it’s a complete win/win!



Easiest recipe ever and here we go – Throw everything all together into your food processor – The avocado, cocoa, dates, almond mylk or coconut cream, and a pinch of himalyan salt. Pulse until smooth and creamy. And that is it! See the full recipe below.

If you don’t want to use dates, you can use another sweetener like honey, agave or maple syrup. I chose dates for this recipe because they don’t spike blood sugar, making it perfect for diabetics. That makes me happy.

Once you transfer the mousse to the jars, you can garnish it with chopped walnuts, cacoa nibs and coconut flakes. Feel free to use whatever nut instead or to go without, it’s just as nice.


Avocados: Make sure they are good quality and ripe. I recommend buying them ripe and ready in the shop – those ripen-at-home ones tend to go from hard to mouldy. Hass avocados are the best (though not cheap).

Coconut Cream: If you cannot source coconut cream in a tin, buy a can of coconut milk and cool it in the fridge overnight. This causes the cream and the liquid to separate. The  next day spoon out the coconut cream for your chocolate avocado mousse and use the leftover liquid for your next smoothie or curry.

Flavour and Spices: I love the flavour of cinnamon and ginger in chocolate. I also love adding a drop of the wild orange Doterra essential oil into my chocolate mouse, it’s a game changer if you’re into orange flavoured chocolate – Plus it’s a great immunity booster, packed with vit C!

It’s really important to blend your avocado mousse until it is super silky and smooth. If you don’t have a food processor or a high speed blender, just take your sweet time. You don’t want to find any green lumps and bumps in it!

You can store the mousse in the fridge for up to week in an airtight container or you put it in an ice cube tray and freeze it. When you’re ready to eat it, either defrost it or throw the cubes straight into a power blender and enjoy half-frozen! It’ll taste a little like chocolate ice cream.

Can’t wait for you guys to make it, please share your recreations with me and tag me on Instagram, I love seeing them!

Much love and have a happy day everyone xx
