I really have no idea where this has been all my life. I can’t stress hard enough how easy and delicious it is and no, you REALLY can’t taste the avocados. It is creamy, decadent and chocolatey. It is so easy to adjust this recipe according to your tastes and dietary needs. I feel so justified eating avocados for dessert. Go make some!
Some notes on sweetener- if you like a dark chocolate flavor, you really don’t need much. I used a granulated stevia and erythritol blend in this batch. You can use whatever sweetener fits your taste and needs. You can also lower the cocoa powder and increase the sweetener and coconut milk to make it more of a milk chocolate mousse. Adjust the amount of liquid to make it a thick fudgy pudding or more of a light mousse. For AIP, use roasted carob powder.
This is decadent enough for small servings in cute little dessert cups or tiny bowls. I love that I am satisfied with a small amount. I’ve really been working on eating the right things in the right amounts each day because that’s the best way I know to keep my hunger and hormones doing what they should and giving me the right signals. Your batch may vary based on the size of your avocados too, and this is super easy to scale up or down for a different sized crowd(or more leftovers in the fridge for you). If you do eat more than one serving though, I sure won’t tell on you for eating extra avocados as dessert.
Avocado Chocolate Mousse THM S with paleo, keto and AIP options
A decadent chocolate mousse you won’t believe is low sugar and made from avocados!
- 2 hass avocados
- 1-3 tbsp granulated erythritol and stevia blend such as THM Gentle Sweet, adjust to taste see notes in blog post, use the sweetener of your choice, you could use honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk adjust for consistency
- flake salt or sweetener for serving, optional
- 3/4-1 cup cocoa powder or roasted carob powder adjust to taste
Place all ingredients (except optional salt) in a food processor. Process until smooth. Adjust for sweetness and consistency, adding more coconut milk in 1-2 tablespoon increments if needed to be creamier and more mousselike. For a fudgy pudding, use less. Serve sprinkled with flake salt or drizzled with a little maple syrup.
