Avocado Chocolate Mousse
A ragluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, low carb, vegan, and paleo dessert. This easy avocado chocolate mousse can be made in a blender in 2 minutes!
This avocado chocolate mousse is a combination of healthy and delicious ingredients that come together to create a dense, rich, and silky smooth pudding.
How to make chocolate avocado mousse
The best thing about this recipe is that it’s so simple and quick to make. All you need is:
- a couple of avocados,
- a splash of unsweetened almond milk,
- agave nectar,
- raw cacao powder,
- chia powder,
- and a touch of almond extract.
Just throw everything in the blender or food processor and mix until creamy and smooth. The avocado gives this mousse its creamy texture and the chia powder works as a thickening agent.
Serve the chocolate mousse plain or topped with cacao nibs, fresh raspberries, and/or whipped coconut cream.
Use Hass avocados for a super creamy dessert
What does avocado chocolate mousse taste like?
Don’t worry, you will only taste a faint hint of avocado. While it’s not quite the same as a classic mousse, it’s not far off and so much better for you.
Give it a twist!
This dessert is also easily customizable. I used raw cacao powder, but you could always use unsweetened cocoa powder instead.
Replace the agave nectar with honey, or maple syrup, and adjust the amount to your taste.
If you can’t find chia powder grind chia seeds in a food processor or coffee grinder.
Substitute the almond milk with coconut milk, cashew milk, or any other plant-based milk.
Not a fan of almond extract? Vanilla works just as well!
To make this recipe paleo, replace the agave nectar with honey or maple syrup
How to store leftovers
Chocolate avocado mousse can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 1 week.

Just made this. So good! Thank you. Creamy and chocolaty just what I needed. Trying to be healthier and replace my old habits with new ones. I will make it again. Looking forward to making more of your recipes.
I am so glad to hear that, Jebe! :) You should try the Silken Tofu Chocolate Mousse, it’s delicious!
This recipe was so easy and delicious! For the chia powder I just used chia seeds and a half tsp of organic hemp powder, and also substituted honey and it was perfect!
Glad you liked it! :)
Sooooo good! We omitted the sweetener and did not miss it the dark chocolate smoothness was enough ( and I’m a total sweets person I swear it’s perfect without the sweetener!) we also used Lamont powder instead of chia bec it’s all we had… perfection
So glad to hear, Amy! :)
