Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Instead of whipping up egg whites or melting chocolate in a double boiler, this recipe only requires a simple food processor, a handful of ingredients, and three simple steps to get started.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 6 Medjool dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth, thick and glossy. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the processor in between blending.
  • Refrigerate prior to serving and serve with fresh raspberries, some cacao nibs and a sprig of mint.
  • Prepare this recipe in advance and store in the fridge. Serve with 2 spoons, dig in with your partner and enjoy a romantic dessert together.
