Avocado Chocolate Mousse: “Chocolate Mousse of the Gods”

BySarah Axtell, ND December 24, 2021

This Avocado Chocolate Mousse (aka “Chocolate Mousse of the Gods”) is simply divine! Yep, that’s right, the main ingredient is heart-healthy AVOCADO! But no one will be able to tell… It’s deceptively delicious!


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
    or 1-1/4 cup soft dates
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2/3 cup cacao powder


1. If you are using dates: pit the dates and cover with fresh water to soften for 5-10 minutes.
2. In a food processor: Blend avocados (scooped out of the skin without the pit!), maple syrup (or dates), vanilla, and olive oil until smooth.
3. Spoon in cacao powder and blend until creamy.
