5-Minute Classic Chocolate Avocado Mousse

  • Author: Faith
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


Decadently thick, rich chocolate mousse gets its unbelievably creamy texture from avocado, which is a fabulous source of heart-healthy fats.


  • 1 medium-large ripe Hass avocado
  • 1/3 cup (30 g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant espresso powder, dissolved in 1/2 teaspoon warm water
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. (You can add a splash of cold water to thin it out as desired, but I prefer it thick.)
  2. Spoon into 2 small serving bowls or glasses and serve, or cover with plastic wrap and store refrigerated for up to 3 days before serving.
