Avocado is so delicious and nutritious that it is hard not to have these sitting ready for you to enjoy in your fruit basket at home.  High in natural fats, proteins and potassium, it is a great way for vegetarians and vegans to include this as part of their daily healthy diet.

Here I wanted to share my delicious and decadent recipe for Avocado Chocolate Mousse. It is so fancy yet simple and will curb those chocolate cravings.

Serves 4


2 large ripe avocados
4 tbsp cocoa powder
100g dark vegan chocolate
2 tsp vanilla extract/essence
1 ripe banana
5 tbsp plant based milk (I use Soya but all types will work)


  1. Scoop the avocado flesh out and put in a bowl
  2. In a blender, add ALL ingredients except the dark chocolate pieces and blend until well combined
  3. Grate 1/4 of the dark chocolate and melt the rest
  4. In glasses or serving dishes, scoop half the mousse into them, add a drizzle of melted chocolate, top with more mousse and sprinkle some grated chocolate on top.

Wonderfully satisfying, vegan & gluten free.  Enjoy!
