Chocolate Avocado Mousse Recipe

Super Healthy Chocolate Avocado Mousse

The idea of avocado chocolate mousse has been popular on the health food scene for years, but some of the recipes out there are unfortunately so awful they only prove true mainstream society’s claim that avocado chocolate mousse is too weird or too healthy to really be dessert.

This is exactly what happened to me a few years back when one of my friends found a recipe for avocado chocolate mousse and decided we should try it. The results were so terrible that it took me five years to even think about coming up with my own version of the popular dessert.

(Note to self: Always be suspicious of a chocolate pudding recipe that does not call for any salt whatsoever.)

However, when the subject of avocado chocolate mousse came up on the blog a few weeks ago when I posted my 20 favorite Healthy Chocolate Recipes, I was finally inspired to give the idea a second chance.

And I’m so glad I did! With the right recipe, avocado chocolate mousse can be really good, for a healthy dessert or not!

Above – watch the video how to make avocado chocolate mousse!


The best part about this avocado chocolate mousse is that it tastes so decadent and so sinful that you completely forget you’re getting so many health benefits at the same time!

Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free, contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients; and just one serving of the superfood offers eight percent of the daily value of fiber—a nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has also been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

With less than one gram of sugar per ounce, avocados have the least amount of sugar per serving of any fruit, and they act as a “nutrient booster” by helping the body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients.

Vegan Avocado Chocolate Mousse

When I was asked to help raise awareness and get the word out about National Diabetes Month—which takes place every November—I immediately wanted to help. My grandfather had diabetes for as long as I knew him, and I know many readers of this blog are also all too familiar with the disease.

Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, and another 86 million are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes in the future.  The HAAS Avocado Board (HAB) has joined the American Diabetes Association in the national Stop Diabetes movement, with a campaign goal of helping to increase awareness about the role that good fats play in daily nutrition.

And I couldn’t think of a better time than Hug A Fat Month to post this particular recipe – because it is full of healthy fats!

The recipe is vegan, paleo, gluten free, and you can even use a sugar free sweetener if you want to make a low carb or keto avocado chocolate mousse.

The message I’m trying to convey with this post isn’t that eating avocado chocolate mousse will cure diabetes. (If only it were that simple.) But the American Diabetes Association wants people to choose a sensible diet that includes healthy fats—such as avocados—in moderation and in place of higher-cholesterol foods.

Eat delicious foods, enjoy what you are eating, and really be mindful by savoring food slowly so that you eat less and feel more satisfied.

  • 1/4 cup dutch cocoa OR melted chocolate chips

(Watch the video above to see the recipe being made step-by-step.) I used 3 tbsp almond milk, but if you’re not using a liquid sweetener then you might want to add a little extra for a smoother consistency.

    “You really can’t taste the avocado!” This was not true for me. And I gotta say, I’m not a fan of the taste of avocado on its own. This is the 3rd avocado pudding type recipe I have tried to see if anyone can really tone out that avocado taste while keeping that creaminess. So, this is a very fluffy, creamy mousse. Flavor-wise, it needed a lot of help. I added extra maple syrup, then added greek yogurt, and finally added a scoop of birthday cake flavored protein powder. These additions lessened the taste of avocado, obvs the greek yogurt adds a tang that some people hate, but it also added more calories. I think I am done with avocado puddings. Thanks for trying!!

    This is the absolute best recipe for “chocolate pudding” ever! I served to friends not telling them the ingreds. and they were blown away. I will never make chocolate pudding any other way!

  3. Mike Smith says

    Made it per the instructions with the chocolate chips. Delicious. Not overly sweet. This is a keeper. Simple and straight forward. To commentators…..only make a comment AFTER you’ve made a recipe…..don’t say “oh…this looks delicious…can’t wait to make it”. EVERYTHING looks delicious! LOL! Doesn’t help anyone just giving a ‘like’ when you haven’t even made it! And do NOT give a star rating based on pictures!

    Sorry if I’m missing this—but is the nutritional value available? I need to know how many carbs in a serving, for my daughter with Type 1 diabetes.
