If you’ve never tried avocado chocolate mousse before, this healthy recipe will take you completely by surprise!

It is rich and silky smooth… and you really can’t taste the avocado.

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.

  • flesh of 2 ripe avocados (240g)
  • 1/4 cup regular cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dutch cocoa OR melted chocolate chips
  • 3-4 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • sweetener of choice to taste (I like 1/4 cup pure maple syrup)


  • **You have two options for this recipe: The version with the chocolate chips will be richer; the version with the dutch cocoa (important to use dutch) will be lower in fat and sugar.Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. (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.

        I love this!

        I had some avocados I needed to use, so I went hunting and came across this recipe! I used Camino’s cocoa powder and their dutch-process cocoa powder, and I added just a little more maple syrup because though I love dark, bitter chocolate (I make my brownies dark enough that only I will enjoy them if I don’t wanna share…), only 1/4 cup of maple syrup was too bitter for my liking.

        Only thing I would do differently next time is use my food processor. My blender didn’t handle it well.

  1. Sara K. says

    Hi Katie – just wanted to let you know that I appreciate this post. A member of my family has Type 2 and I am at risk for developing. I am trying really hard to be healthier – exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet. I love to eat healthy foods and have purged a lot of junk from my diet over the last several years, but the most difficult thing for me is my sweet tooth. And chocolate, in particular!

    One of the reasons I love your blog is that you provide sensible alternatives so that I can enjoy a little indulgence and have some chocolate without going overboard on sugar and (bad) fat!

    Oh, and I still eat your chocolate peanut butter baked oatmeal on a very regular basis! It is my favorite oatmeal!

  2. Kristina says

    I love avocado chocolate mousse, it’s so creamy, and as you said you can’t really taste the avocado (and even if you would, I would still like it – I sometimes eat avocado toast drizzled with dark chocolate, weird I know). It’s great that you gave two options here!

  3. Lucie Javorska says

    5 stars
    That’s funny, I’m actually a huge fan of avocado chocolate pudding 🙂 I even like to make chocolate frosting out of it (and it contains no salt actually :D). Anyway, I can see why salt could make a difference. can’t wait to try your version! I’m glad you overcame that bad experience and once again created something amazing!

  4. Wendy@TheNomadicVegan says

    Ha ha, I did make avocado chocolate mousse once, and it tasted like….avocado! I actually liked it that way because I’m weird, but it did NOT go over well with the people I served it to, and I felt really bad about it. Your recipes almost never fail me though, so if I ever try it again it will be with this recipe!

    • Barbara P. Turner says

      Hi , Wendy, if you want a little sweetness, I use the baking surgar substitute in the zip bag, I use the Walmart brand Great Value. it comes in a yellow blue and white zip bag and it tastes soooo good! I’d start with 1/4 cup and go from there. shouldn’t take much to get it to where you want it for taste. hope that works.

      • Spire says

        Barbara, artificial/synthetic sugar substitutes are terrible for the human body. Try honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, or sucanat.

  5. Asia says

    Thank you for this recipe, I may try it as I actually bought too many avocados and can’t eat them fast enough the way they are. I have no problem eating too much chocolate pudding though.

    And I wonder what you mean by not believing in happy endings in your twenties and stories being over in your 20s? Hypothetically, can’t a happy “ending” (the end of dating, so-to-speak) turn into a happy beginning (marriage)? And why would settling down with someone/marriage make a story be over? Just interesting to hear other people’s thoughts.

    • Barbara P. Turner says

      Hi Asia, you can put avocados in all your smoothies along with peanut butter, any fruits, walnuts, whatever you wish, even protein drinks like whey chocolate. I just add a packet or two of sucralose substitute and you should be good to go. Hope that works. Just experiment with it.

          Hey Spire!
          Just wanted to share that the sweetners arent actually that bad for you especially for people trying to lose weight- its better that being obese,
          its a great way to cut out the calories this way and still enjoy tasty food. The study that you mentioned was done on rats. not humans. Not good enough to prove anything. there are multiple studies showing that there isn o harm in sucralose in others when used in a normal amount which is way under toxicity levels. Please dont scare people

      • Kym says

        Try date sugar as a substitute- it’s just dried ground dates, so although it’s not sugar-free or calorie-free, it’s much better for you.

        I have a chocolate mousse recipe very much like this one- but with tofu instead of avocado. Looking forward to trying this!

    • Barbara P. Turner says

      I plant to try this this week but i can vouch for the nice mint choc. chip ice cream and the black bean brownies! YUM!!!!! sHE KNOWS HER STUFF! Trust what she says! She’s a keeper!

  6. Lianne says

    Is it the cocoa to be 1/2 cup? I just tried making it and had to add more salt and some maple syrup because it was very bitter. The texture is quite nice.

    • Sarah says

      Did you use the full 6 tbsp maple syrup? I used 1/4 cup maple and then a pinch of stevia as well and it turned out perfect. But just the 1/4 cup was a little bitter. But I don’t think I’d decrease the cocoa because that would make it less chocolatey.

  7. Paula says

    5 stars
    Made this tonight with some avocados that were a bit past their time and it was amazing with cocoa powder and raw cacao nibs added in. Added a touch of maple syrup and it was perfect. Thank you!

  8. Rose says

    I don’t mean any disrespect and I’m not disagreeing with the info in your post, though, I do tend to be more skeptical of “facts” financed by industry. I definitely agree with you that healthy fats should be included in a healthy diet. I don’t think most people or even most vegans have a problem with not getting enough fats in their diet. I did recently come across this article stating that reducing fat intake and increasing complex carbohydrate intake had a positive effect on the health of type 2 diabetics (also, elsewhere, I’ve read that losing weight if overweight can improve the lab test scores of people at risk for diabetes, as well). Link:

    You know, I just re-read your post and at first I thought you were saying that fats decreased the risk of type 2 diabetes and now I’m thinking you’re saying that the fiber reduces the risk. Perhaps your posts encouraging fats was more directed at anorexics and the health minded people who overdo reducing their fat intake… I’m confused.

    As far as the recipe… it’s funny, I was considering recently trying avocado pudding or using avocado as an oil substitute in some recipes. I never liked avocado or guacamole before, but I know taste buds change every so often in your life, so I was wanting to try it in a recipe like the pudding to disguise the taste… ease my way into trying it again, lol. Though, 1/2 cup of cocoa seems like a lot in this recipe as someone else posted… I might start at a lower amount and add if it’s not enough. I wonder if it’s more of a pudding texture with the lower amount of milk.

    Speaking of healthy fats, I made your no-bake peanut butter pie last night and put a layer of your chocolate sauce recipe on top with 1 tbsp of cashew milk mixed into the sauce (it was bitter because of the sugar free sweetener I used). I made it too late last night to have it then, but I did taste it off the spatula, and I can’t wait to have the pie… like a reece’s pb pie. I know it’s an older recipe, but this is my first time making it… I tended to make certain of your recipes over and over again and not trying other stuff as much… this needs to change. 😉

    • Yoyo says

      That’s a very vague study. They don’t say WHAT fats they lowered, or what carbohydrates they added. So technically they could’ve lowered bad fats, not good fats, and upped good carbohydrates – which would be beneficial, yes. They also say that they lowered sugar in the study. Basically your argument makes no sense and is based on a misleading tag line in a vague study.

      • Kaz says

        Ik this is from a long time ago but they didn’t argue, they were just confused. I agree with you, definitely, but your reply made you come across as passive aggressive. And/or annoyed at someone who said themselves that they regularly used (and liked) your recipes. They don’t seem to be just a regular hater. Again, this is from ages ago and I an probably being pretty dumb rn, but this is just my 2 cents

  9. Pottedfern says

    Ooh I love avocado chocolate mousse! The recipe by Laura Miller (Raw. Vegan. Not Gross.) is my go-to, it’s delicious!! Although I might have to try this version too to compare!

  10. Matea says

    I agree with you: it’s unhealthy to completely cut out all fats because mainstream media has labeled “fat” as bad for you. Healthy fats are good for you and you need them! 🙂
    Also, it’s totally acceptable to drop my textbooks and rush over to the kitchen and make this, right?

    • Renee Gorby says

      I made this recipe today with 1/4 c. cacao nibs, stevia and also 1/2 frozen banana added to the pudding in my Vitamix. It was a winner!

  11. Anna says

    Wow this looks great!! I did avocado mousse once before and I have to say it was pretty gross. This one looks much more appealing!! Oh btw were you talking about the same guy in the panna cotta and the pumpkin risotto posts? Or are you still dating the guy in the panna cotta post? sorry if I’m nosy lol just curious! cuz the panna cotta post was adorable… 🙂

  12. Laura says

    Hi Katie,
    This looks really good. I have food allergies and can only use stevia or xylitol to sweeten food. I love avocados and especially chocolate so I can’t wait to try this. I have just started a food blog for other people like me with food allergies and wanted you to know I enjoy learning from your blog and of course some others out there also. You give me hope that I can reach and help some people who need cooking or baking ideas.

  13. Darline says

    Currently licking mousse off my fingers before typing! Delicious!! Made this for my husband who’s learned his body does not tolerate eggs or dairy. We made with 5 Tablespoons brown sugar & 1.5t vanilla. Will try with vegan chocolate chips next time. He’s happy to have a chocolate (his favorite) snack he can eat!

  14. Michelle says

    This was good, but it didn’t remind me of mousse. This was more squarely in the chocolate pudding category for me since it wasn’t so light and fluffy – I wonder if you’d be able to get it that way by using an electric mixer after this. I also recommend refrigerating it for an hour or so after the mixture is done to get it a little thicker.

    Mousse or not, this was tasty, thanks!

    • Michelle says

      Also, you know what would be awesome with this? Crumble up some of your chocolate cookies or brownies on the bottom of this and make dirt cups, the kids’ dessert (that may be enjoyed by some adults too… 😉 )

  15. Michelle says

    Is this supposed to taste like chocolate or avocado? Cause I made this recipe with only 1 avocado because I bought 2 but the 2nd one was too hard and I used knock off brand of sweetener and imitation vanilla? What did I do wrong it tasted so bitter! It went down the drain.

  16. Ana @ Ana's Rocket Ship says

    If only this did cure diabetes. There’s a few people I’d force feed this to if it did (funnily enough they all detest avocados….). But as it doesn’t. I’ll just have to eat their servings as well as my own. Fair enough – right?

  17. Sp says

    I’d like to try making this for my toddler. How long can it keep in the fridge. Do you know if it can be frozen and thawed without charge to texture?

    I love this pudding. I was so concerned about my melted chips seizing up when I blended them with the avacado that I forgot to add the milk. It came out delicious without it. Thank you for a wonderful, low sugar recipe.

    I just tried your recipe this morning and it tastes so good, it is like I am eating chocolate pudding! I have 4 teeth removed a couple of days ago, so I have very limited things I can eat. But this avocado mousse is filling me up and satisfying my chocolate craving!
    I love many of your recipes; pretty pictures with easy/quick to make! Thank you;)

    Oh. My. Goodness. I love chocolate. I love healthy chocolate. I love chocolate without refined sugars. And this recipe covers them all, and is A-MA-ZING!!! Love it! Thanks Katie! I’m on your page at least 3 or 4 times a week lately, trying new things. Pretty much love them all so far (except maybe the healthy cookie dough, but i’m thinking i missed something), but this one is by far my favourite and will be made MANY more times in the very near future!!

    What size avocados did you use? The smaller hass or the larger ones that are, I’m guessing, more like 2 hass in one avocado. Thanks

    Oh Katie, my sister in sweets! Ever since I discovered you and fell in love with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip, your website and FB feed are my “go to” when I’m craving a healthy treat. I had never bought avocados until Avocado Chocolate Mousse, and now I squeal with glee when the Haas are 10 for $10 at the local grocery. My only complaint is that the serving size listed with your recipes is not right – every one I’ve tried has only made one serving : )

  25. Suz says

    Oh my gosh! I made this Avocado Chocolate Mousse with the cocoa powder, and it’s wonderful! So decadently chocolatey and creamy — delicious! The only thing wrong with the recipe is I think you got the number of servings wrong–clearly this makes a serving for only one!! (wink, wink) Loving your recipes!!

    I’m not generally a recipe comment poster, but since you asked so nicely … I really want to say thank you for this. This is pretty damn good. I did the cocoa powder version and used just 2T of sweetener and it’s really quite outstanding. I can also eat it as a meal and a dessert in one – total bonus. Put a bit too much almond milk in guess, as it’s more pudding-like, but I sort of dig that. Very happy to have this recipe – it will become a staple. Thank you so much chocolate-covered Kate.

    Made several different flavors of this mousse…all using (1/2 cup) coconut milk and
    (6 Tbsp.) coconut sugar, also doubling the amount of flavoring …classic chocolate with Madagascar vanilla; chocolate chia almond with dark cherries; chocolate hazelnut; chocolate raspberry…all are yummy!!! ;0 Thanks for the recipe!

    Loved the avocado chocolate mousse! I went with the coco powder and I used 4 tbs of stevia (for my first time) to sweeten it. I could taste the funky after taste of the stevia so I just added another table spoon of chocolate and a little milk and it was fine 🙂 . Seriously delicious! So creamy! My 9 year old loved it… She hates avocados and new they were in there and just wanted to try a small bite…. She ended up liking the food processor bowl and the spoon! Next time will make it following the recipe exactly but only use 2tbs of stevia. Thank you for the recipe!!!!!!!!!!

    OH my goodness I have just whipped up a batch of this and I had to comment straight away!!! Delicious! I did half chocolate chips and half raw cacao powder (as this is what I had in my pantry) which I melted on the stove with the milk and threw into the blender with the other ingredients.
    Result = pure yumminess! Thank you Katie for a wonderful recipe x

  33. Kaylene says

    Hi Katie!
    I wanted to thank you for this recipe. I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes at 30 weeks pregnant. I was determined to control it with diet and exercise, but was worried as I have a major sweet tooth! I was pricking my finger and writing down all my foods in a journal for the dietitian my OB had sent me to. Long story short- I was able to keep my blood sugar controlled and have a healthy baby girl! After going through my food logs my dietitian asked for this recipe. She noticed that I ate it for dessert almost every night for 6 weeks straight, haha! Anywho, this is amazing and I love what you do. Thank you!

  34. Mikea says

    I just made this using a reed (i think) avocado. Its good but i think it must chill first to taste perfect. I used 1/2 cup of semi sweet choc chips because its what i had but i think it would be much better with milk choc chips. Im sure it didnt help that i used the store brand which i noticed today (after using it for years) doesnt tase too great. I ended up using 6 tbsp of maple/agave and adding cocoa poowder because i could still taste the avocado. I dont mind but my kids may not be happy if they can taste it. I also added another 1/2 t of vanilla… All additions were added after my first taste test. I would make this again. Maybe with a hass avocado. I used reed because it’s what i had and needed to be used… Thanks Katie!

  35. Belsante says

    Just made it! Loved the creamy texture. My little sister couldn’t handle the chocolateness and had to dilute it with strawberries!

  36. Mark Barnett says

    @katie: Awesome! Incredible! Used Extra Dark Chocolate Chips (68% cocoa). Extra coconut milk version. And it needed 6 tbsps sweetener, we used agave. It was a so light and creamy. No hint of avocado flavor. We quick-chilled it in the freezer for 30 minutes and yummed it up. Thank You!

  37. Mer Now Fitz says

    I searched high and low to find a chocolate mousse made with avocado that looked like it would actually be good and I’m so glad I tried yours!! Just made a double batch right now for a dinner party tomorrow night, where I’m in charge of dessert and my friend used to be a vegetarian, but is now back to eating meat. I figured she would be a good recipient of a dessert made with avocados. Since this recipe calls for a range of ingredients (2-6T sugar, etc), I tasted periodically as I made it. In the end, it was: 4 avocados, 1 cup mini Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips (melted before blending), 1/4 cup 2% milk, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp salt, 6 Tbsp granulated sugar – mixed with an immersion blender in the bowl I’m bringing it over in. So delicious!! I’m excited to serve it to them. Thanks for coming up with a great recipe!!

  38. Milena says

    I’m not a fan of avocados but I decided to give it a try.
    I was really surprised. This is a really delicious dessert and I don’t feel even a bit guilty for eating 2 portions 😛

  39. Leanne Christie says

    I can’t thank you enough for this recipe! Ive been dairy free for 4 months because im breastfeeding my 9 month old son who is dairy, soy, coconut, oat and strawberry intolerant. Trying to find healthy enjoyable puddings for us both has become a nightmare. Ive just tried this recipe and its delicious and o don’t even like avocado! My son loves it too!! Thanks again! Xx

  40. Sophie Enever says

    Tried this for a healthier desert option for a recent dinner party – it was great! I did use the wrong type of honey which gave it a funny taste, but generally the consistency was amazing! I served with some strawberries and also a few chocolate heart toppers 🙂 Thank you!

  41. Alison says

    Never tried avocado before but as I am a serious chocolate lover and want to increase my healthy fats AND because all of the recipes of yours I have tried and loved thought I would give this a go. It was really yum – only downside is HOW do you get those last bits out of the blender!!!!! ??

  42. Theresa says

    I loved the avocado chocolate pudding. What is the recipe for the chocolate drizzle shown on top? I ended up using mini chocolate chips instead. Thanks much ?

  43. Croline says

    Did this recipe today, easy and smooth! The avocado taste was a bit too present though (they were ripe, but maybe not enough?), so I turned the 4 portions I got into “mug cakes”: cooked in the microwave ( I cooked the cups separatly for 2 min each, on 800w)

    • sylvie Andrews says

      Question…..ingredients list chocolate powder twice. Do we need 1/2 cup of just 1/4 cup of one or the other?

  44. Jo says

    I made this the other day – amazing!!! – have made it again already it was so nice 🙂 (I made the cocoa version) – Thanks 🙂

  45. Sara says

    Hi there! Thank you so much for the recipe! How I made mine:
    – 2 Large Has Avocados
    -3 Tbsp Organic Cocoa Powder
    -1/4 C Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
    – Pinch of Himalayan Salt
    – 4 Tbsp Agave Nectar (Initially only put 2 Tbs, then saw it needed more so added 2 more.

    Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

    (My family had no idea there were avocados in it!) Served it over a dallop of cool whip and topped it off with chopped strawberries and grated 88% dark chocolate.

    Happy holidays!

    Thank you again. Really appreciate it!

  46. Ivy says

    Thanks for the recipe! I made this and it was so tasty. I did a half and half of the cocoa powder and melted dark chocolate chips. It really does taste decadent and not like avocados! Thanks for posting!

  47. Sweet tooth says

    I made this last night when I was having a huge urge for something sweet. I used maple syrup instead of Stevia……it was absolutely delicious…my first time making avocado mousse and I was so surprised! Would definitely recommend ?

  48. Eileen says

    Tried the recipe but since my avocados were larger, had to adjust the recipe for chocolate chips, honey and salt. Used about double but only ~ 1/4 c milk. Great consistency but the taste is a bit light and buttery with the avocado. My husband tasted the avocado right away :(. I am using this to frost his birthday cake – diabetic so better frosting than normal buttercream. Going to do 4 thin layers, 2 with raspberry, one with the mousse nd then frost the outside. Will chill before serving but think with all ingredients, will make a great cake with less sugar and the junk that normally is found in a cake.

  49. Sherry says

    I have to admit it. I was very skeptical of a pudding where you “couldn’t taste the avocado.”
    However, upon making this and after reading the comments and adding a bit more sweetener, it tasted INCREDIBLE!!
    Thanks for another wonderful recipe. I used almond milk as I am lactose intolerant and it worked beautifully in this recipe. I used my Blendtec twister jar and it blended it perfectly!

  50. The Mad Mother says

    Can I use unsweetened baking chocolate in place of the chips and cocoa?
    And would banana work as a sweetener?
    Our baby has a lot of intolerances and we’ve had a lot of success with food trials but I don’t know what he’ll be able to have for added sugars by the time he turns one in August so I’m searching for an alternative to cake for him!
    Thanks in advance!

  51. Salina says

    This recipie is awesome! I made it with 70% dark chocolate and used some honey and my 2 and 4yr old loves it!! I actually tricked them into eating avocados…Yay! 😉

    Easy to make and tasty with lovely creamy texture. Next time I will add more stevia and maybe more chocolate as I’m a sweet tooth and wasnt quite sweet enough for me.

  53. Johno says

    Made this tonight using cocoa powder , everyone loved it , added orange essence , a little honey , served withe blueberries and strawberries, it was awesome

  54. Suzette says

    So, I made this recipe with dark cacao. It as terrible until I made adjustments. I added a tablespoon of agave and it was perfect. I topped it off with chocolate chips and whipped vegan cream. But without the agave,this recipe didn’t work. Otherwise, it was awesome.

  55. Sierra says

    Hey there. Going away on a girls weekend and wanted to bring this as a dessert. Do you think if I made it the day before, it would keep well? Not sure if any of the ingredients would stop the avocado from turning brown or changing the flavour?
    Thanks for your advice

  56. Annmarie says

    Hi. I made this & it’s delicious! I used cocoa powder, maple syrup & coconut milk. Next time, I’m going to try it with raw honey & see how that turns out. Not a fan of stevia. Couldn’t even detect the avocado! Thanks for this healthy recipe, Katie!

  57. Taylor says

    Sooo good! I just did a sprinkle of stevia and about 2 T of honey. Perfect! Then I topped it with unsweetened shredded coconut. Thanks so much for posting!

  58. Sarah Brenner says

    About an hour ago I noticed I had an avocado that wouldn’t make it through the day tomorrow. So I found this and immediately made it. Completely skeptical bc of the millions of others out there, I only made a half batch, thinking I would throw it away. I used the melted chocolate method (Lily’s chocolate chips to cut back even more on the sugar). I can’t have sugar. I don’t even eat carrots in hopes to avoid it. So, it was finished blending and I very cautiously dipped my pinky in the bowl. As soon as it hit my mouth, in a completely empty house, I yelled “you shut the f- up!!” And ate the entire thing! (Sorry not sorry). Thank you. It’s been a year of no desserts or trying ones that I can’t stand. I am over the moon!

    • Jennifer says

      I’m curious how you made this without sugar since the recipe calls for it. Did the chocolate chips have sugar? Or did they have a sugar substitute?

  59. Hayley says

    Pretty good! This is my first time making an avocado-based dessert. I used cocoa powder and whole milk and initially was like oh no, it really just tastes like chocolatey avocado. However, I forgot the vanilla extract! The vanilla extract and a bit more sweetener really fixed it up. Good stuff! 🙂

  60. Morgan says

    This mousse saved my night! I have been cooking for about six hours trying to make fun vegan things to bring to a New Year’s Eve party. I had a crazy idea to make chocolate cups full of mousse but all of the aquafaba recipes weren’t working. So I went to the store at 11:00pm to find something else to make and saw the avocados! This recipe was quick, easy and insanely delicious! I had my non-vegan family try it and they loved it! Also, it looks super cute piped into vegan white chocolate cups! Thank you so much!!

  61. Bethany says

    Loved this. We’ll be making it again in a larger quantity.
    I used the chocolate (43% cocoa – i’ll aim for something a bit blacker next time, but that’s what i had), because i was afraid it wouldn’t be as silky with cocoa, and i added just a dash of maple syrup, skimped a little on the salt, and doubled the vanilla. I didn’t weigh the avocado, so not sure if i had the right amount.
    The texture was absolutely gorgeous. As to flavour, i’d have been happy to have it a little less sweet, but it was still good. I could *just* taste the avocado, but i made sure Mum didn’t see me making it, and she didn’t guess, even when i brought out the remains of the avocado for the cat to eat!
    I kept a little bit aside to see how it would store, and after a couple of hours in the fridge, the texture is just the same ( i thought it would stiffen), but it’s tasting a lot more like avocado – or rather, like something green but non-specific. I’m thinking a dash of Sable (chocolate port from Kellermeister in South Australia) or Baileys would probably fix that – or i might even try replacing the milk with strained orange juice….

  62. Anita @ feed me sushi says

    Hi Katie! This recipe was great! I made it for my boyfriend and I when we had some avocados that were getting a bit ripe. When I first said “avocado mousse” you should have seen the confused look on his face! Well he was even more confused when he took a bite because he LOVED it. He pretty much ate the whole thing and couldn’t believe there was avocado in there. It’s magic!

  63. Kaity says

    Hi, new to your recipes, but they come up frequently in my healthy dessert research 🙂

    Tried this avocado pudding recipe. It was great! I used the cocoa powder and Stevia. Additionally I broke some chocolate into small pieces and some tea biscuit cookies into the pudding. I didn’t have any milk products around besides some half and half, but it was amazing with that.

    Thanks for the great recipe! Will definitely try some others, and possibly purchase your cookbook!

  64. Nicki says

    This is crazy delicious! I used the cocoa powder and agave. A 1/2 cup of powder is way too rich- either add a 3rd avocado and more milk or reduce cocoa to 1/4 or 1/3 cup.
    Now instead of panicking when all my avocados ripen at the same time, I’m going to do a happy little dance because I have a great excuse to make a healthy dessert!

  65. Doreen says

    I used raw chocolate instead of coca and there was no bitterness. Just used a pinch of stevia and topped with coconut cream.

  66. SugarMama says

    Just made this – it was really good, but I had to put way more sugar (in my case, raw honey, but still “sugar”) in than I would have liked just to make it palatable. I’m going to try to make this again adding in a banana for natural sweetness and also cutting the cocoa powder in half…1/2 a cup makes it nice and chocolatey but so unbelievably bitter. I find Stevia seems to have a bitter aftertaste and I don’t really like it either. Any other suggestions for maintaining chocolate flavour and keeping it still sweet enough to taste like a “treat”? I absolutely LOVE your recipes – I’m a sugar addict trying to break the habit and I find that your recipes satisfy my sugar cravings in a much healthier way than grabbing a Snickers bar, so thank you!

  67. Lauren says

    I just made this and doubled the recipe. It is amazing! My children cannot tell the difference between this and regular chocolate pudding! It is absolutely delicious, silky, satisfying, and guilt free (if you don’t eat the whole bowl)!!! Thank you!

  68. Stephanie says

    Sooooo good! Even my oldest daughter (4), who swears she doesn’t like avocado, totally devoured this mousse. My youngest (14 months) did too! Oh my god it’s so delish! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  69. Adala says

    I’ve been craving a chocolate dessert that was ketogenic friendly. This recipe really hit the spot and my husband loved it too! I used my vitamix to get the smooth pudding texture. My sweetener of choice is swerve and I only used 2 Tbs. I used unsweetened almond milk and we only had 1 avocado on hand that was ripe. It’s worth mentioning that a room temperature avocado blends much smoother. This made 2 perfect dessert bowl sized servings. Thank you!!!! This is a new favorite recipe!

  70. Tabitha says

    Delicious! I made the cocoa powder version with maple syrup. It was VERY rich but I could barely detect avocado. All 4 of my kids loved it and I didn’t tell them the ingredients

  71. Judy says

    Because avos don’t last long after cutting, must this recipe be eaten right away? Will it last in the fridge & for how long? Thanks!

  72. Daniel Springer says

    Oh my belly. I have no regrets not sharing. Oh… OK maybe a little.. it’s been a tough week. I… burp.. oh.. delicious.. I can’t believe I ate the whole bowl..

  73. Erin Heintz says

    I just made this with regular cocoa powder (not dark). I liked mine a little creamier so I added more almond milk. When it was done, I topped it with Cool Whip and it was AMAZING! Thank God for this recipe because it is a GREAT alternative to the cupcakes and donuts I was eating when I got my sweet tooth!

  74. Bethany says

    Unlike most of the people who’ve posted a comment on this, i have actually tried it – twice 🙂 It’s gorgeous. The first time i made it for Mum, i kept her away from the kitchen so she couldn’t see what went into it, and she had no idea it included avocado. I am in the process of moving from loathing all avocado to quite liking Reed avos (in things, not on their own) and not minding Shepards if properly disguised; i love this mousse. Plus, i can feel relatively virtuous while eating it. But we did notice last time that the leftovers tasted discernably avocado-flavoured next day.
    I made the first batch with Cadbury “dark” melts (43% cocoa, so not what i’d call dark, but) and the latest one with half melts and half really good cocoa. Both were equally good.
    To those who are finding this recipe bitter, i’d suggest that it’s worth changing your cocoa – some are far more bitter, and the less bitter ones are often darker and much more chocolatey, so you don’t need to use as much. I used Aldi’s “Choceur” brand.

  75. Sarah says

    I made this and it turned out so good! I used the cocoa powder version, and used about 6TBSP of erythritol for sweetener. Still a slight avocado aftertaste but I love avocado so it’s not a problem. The initial bite looks, feels, and tastes just like store bought pudding.

  76. Siebert200 says

    I added a 1/2 of banana to mine and blended it together and now I love it. Before it was not sweet enough for my liking. I used honey.

  77. Jose from Australia says

    What a waste of avocados. Tried the recipe. Hated it. It tasted like avocado with some cocoa powder. Ghastly.

    • Jose from Australia says

      Wish I had read all the comments first. It’s too bitter strange avocad tasting. Yep – straight down the drain. And I still can’t get th after taste out of my mouth.

  78. Catherine Gallagher says

    I wanted this to be more of a frosting for the black bean brownies, so I added confectiner’s sugar. The avocados I used were pretty strong tasting, which meant I had to add more vanilla and finally a touch of cinnamon to make more like a Mexican chocolate. It was a hit at a party I took it to!

  79. Emily says

    The 1 tsp of vanilla really overpowered the entire dish and made everything taste kinda off, so I added another avocado and some more chocolate (both powder and melted chocolate). Love the consistency but def too much vanilla in that it reminded me of a rum cake.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, just want to mention this in case it might be what happened to you – Does your vanilla say the word “pure” anywhere on the label? A lot of the vanilla extracts sold in stores is actually not pure extract, and it’s all sold in the same place, and imitation vanilla definitely has a bad aftertaste! Not sure if that pertains to your situation but I wanted to mention it because it would definitely have caused a bad aftertaste if it was!

  80. says

    Most recipes I have seen for avocado chocolate mousse use 2 avocados, which makes a nice portion for several people, but it’s not all eaten at one time, is there a limit as to how long can it be kept in the fridge without spoiling, and how can one tell if it has not spoiled?

  81. Peter says

    I was nervous about this one, and it started badly. I did the cocoa powder version with whole milk and Swerve. We don’t have a food processor so I dumped it all into a blender which then failed to mix – the blades spun harmlessly. We added some splashes of half half to get more moisture in and that didn’t work either. We ended up mashing it all up with a spatula along the sides which worked well.
    For sweetener, I needed 8 tablespoons of Swerve. And it still tasted awful and despite the lovely color and texture I was close to chucking it out. I used kosher salt originally and added some more and it became tolerable, but I wasn’t going to make this again.
    I divided it into four servings and refrigerated them and was not particularly looking forward to finishing them. I let the kids try it the next day and they were not impressed, nor was the wife. On a whim I added yet another couple pinches of kosher salt and my serving improved even more. Salt was the trick! 3-4 pinches per serving made it indistinguishable from any other scratch pudding. Delicious!
    I ate the last serving on day 3 so it keeps reasonably well if refrigerated. I’ll use the electric hand mixer next time instead of the blender.

  82. Sandra Price says

    Amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I was eating it at my baseball game and I ‘converted’ another person; you truly cannot taste the avocado. I used cocoa powder and stevia, as you recommended for the lower option and it turned out great!

  83. Julie says

    MADE THE COCOA POWDER VERSION AND IT WAS SO GOOD. Though in my opinion, it’s more pudding like than a mousse since it’s not as fluffy. Recommend letting it set up in the fridge for a firmer/better texture. Plus it tastes best cold. I mashed my avocados by hand because I was too lazy to wash my blender but the results were fine. I love avocado so I easily tolerated the small bits in my mousse but if you really want the perfect, smooth mouth feel definitely mix everything in a blender. Love this easy, tasty recipe!!

  84. Sue says

    This was absolutely fantastic. Easy to make and insanly delicious. I even got my 8 year old to eat it and she was asking for more. Definitely worth the try.

  85. Laura Bell says

    Made this last night for a date night with my hubby, and LOVED it! I was thinking to add a frozen banana next time to replace some of the honey, and cacao nibs would be an awesome addition for a little crunch!

  86. Alexandra M Gardner says

    I made your mousse recipe tonight and it was delicious. I used 1/2 C cocoa, 1/4 C 1% milk (Yes, I do eat dairy) and 5 T of stevia. It was bittersweet, but was just perfect with a little dollop of light whipped cream. This will be my go-to when I need a healthy chocolate fix!

  87. Holly says

    This was an amazing recipe and even my extremely picky husband who wrinkled up his nose at the idea, loved it. (I had to insist he taste it. LOL) It’s just what we need to treat ourselves and stay healthy. Thank you so much!

  88. Christine A Yarbrough says

    Very, very good. Husband couldn’t tell it was his least fave food in the worl, and enjoyed it. I didn’t tell him what it was. I told him if he knew, he wouldnt taste it. I didn’t have enough maple syrup so added white sugar. Must stock up. Still bitter aftertaste, but more like dark chocolate pudding. Thank you so much!

  89. Tamara says

    I’ve always been “If you’re going to eat choc moose then just eat it, why bother with this pseudo avocado stuff”, but today with two avocados sitting in the bowl and no cream I gave it a go and I may never go back.
    Easier to make, less mess to clean up and so luscious. Now to get the men on board ??

  90. Leah solomon says

    Just made this recipe, it’s absolutely delicious! My brother hates avocado, and even he had a bowl full! It also tastes really good with raspberries.

  91. Gail says

    I made this recipe and it was a real crowd pleaser. However it was more of a rich creamy pudding consistency.
    I was hoping it would be more mousse like, with air bubbles incorporated into it. I used a cuisinart food processor. do you have any suggestions for incorporating more air into the ‘pudding’?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

  92. Patricia Schwenk says

    Just made this using cocoa powder and maple syrup as the sweetener. This recipe is genius. Great taste with a serving of vegetable. Love it. The only problem is that I’ve never bought avocados so I had no idea that you have to wait forever before they become ripe.

    Thanks again. This is just perfect.

  93. James Abell says

    Hi thanks so much, I just made this its lovely, I put some orange zest on the top.
    I’m always trying to find a healthy pudding treat substitutes this really ticks everything and more.
    Junk food is so addictive, every week I have a “junk food day” however, with this recipe I don’t really need to
    have cake, thanks!

  94. Angelina says

    I whipped this up last night and it was delicious! I made a quarter recipe as I was only cooking for me 🙂 I used half an avocado, 1/8 cup cocoa powder, 1 tbsp maple syrup, a pinch of salt, and a tbsp of almond milk. It was so rich and smooth!

  95. Pamela Egle says

    Hi, I’m wondering how much Stevia ishould use if I sub the cocoa powder for carob powder and don’t use chocolate chips? What is the equivalent to sugar I should use?

    • Jason Sanford says

      We have never tried it with carob, so you will have to experiment, but it sounds like a fun experiment. Be sure to report back if you try!

  96. Nelly Doolittle says

    I make this recipe all the time! I haven’t tried any other versions, but certainly agree that any recipe that doesn’t have salt with the chocolate, I would be skeptical also. It is especially handy to make this when I’ve bought too many avocados or just don’t eat them fast enough. I especially love making this when it’s that time of the month….it really keeps me from overeating because of the healthy fat,and I still get the chocolatey goodness I’m usually craving (I’ve only made it with the chocolate chips so far).

    Love your recipes, Katie! Thank you! ❤️

  97. Ira says

    I followed the recipe exactly with cocoa power, 1% milk, and 2 tbsp of Stevia brown sugar and it was probably the best chocolate pudding I’ve ever had!! 😀

    I’m thinking about using hot chocolate mix I bought when I was in Spain to replace cocoa powder, salt, and sweetener as well as substitute 1% milk with some almond milk to see how it turns out.

  98. Sara says

    I made this while my kids were playing upstairs and then called them down with the promise of chocolate mousse. They both took a big, excited bite, then made a face. My eight-year-old levelled a malevolent death glare at me and seethed, “There’s avocado in this!” LOL, your hidden avocado in this recipe is not so hidden. I have to agree with her. The taste was fairly prominent.

  99. Allen says

    I just started Keto this week and I decided to make this to help me reach my daily fat intake in a healthier way. I made it with Hershey’s Dark Chocolate cocoa and it is delicious. I tried a spoonful of it before I put it in the fridge. I love Mexican chocolate flavors so I plan to sprinkle the top with cayenne and cinnamon and a dollop of whipped cream for dessert tonight.

    I really appreciate how simple this recipe was in comparison to several others I researched. The results taste wonderful and feel indulgent. I have 170 pounds to lose and am incredibly grateful for resources like you as I continue this journey. I tried the non-diet, eat in moderation, anything goes approach this past fall and ended up with a net gain/loss of zero after the holidays.

    I hope Keto works for me. I have noticed a decrease in my hunger today. I hope this is a good sign! Thank you for the work you do and the great recipes!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Good luck! I know the keto diet has been helpful to so many people who haven’t found success with other diets before trying it. -Jason

  100. Julie says

    Just finished making this, and I can’t believe how chocolatey, rich, and not-avocado tasting it was! I did add about a tablespoon more of swerve because my husband thought just the 6 tbsps was too bitter from the cocoa. But I wouldnt reduce the cocoa! It turned out really well though; a bit on the cooling side because of the swerve, but the depth of flavour is unparallel, you really feel like its a regular dessert.

    Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!

  101. Shelagh says

    Just made this for the first time. Absolutely lovely. Even my veggie and avocado hating husband loved it. Can’t be bad.

  102. Shawna says

    I made this for the first time today, following the recipe to the letter and using cocoa powder. It turned out SUPER bitter with just “a pinch of stevia” for sweetening. I ended up adding teaspoons one at a time (around 8 I think) and a bit of cream to make it even close to edible. Maybe there is something missing in the ingredients? It was very smooth and delicious at the end but needed WAY more stevia to get there.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, it sounds like you used regular stevia as opposed to pure stevia, where the only ingredient is stevia extract? The pure stuff is much more concentrated, and 1/8tsp equals 1/4 cup of sugar!

  103. Mary from Salem says

    Thank you for this recipe and all your other recipes. I liked this mousse but I want to report that the avocado taste is still present. For those of us who substitute avocado or nuts for less healthy fats often, you’ll love this recipe. If, like me, you are trying to get your finicky boyfriend to accept this as regular chocolate mousse, you may be out of luck.
    I was.
    Oh well, more for me!

  104. Laurie says

    I made half the recipe because I only had one avocado. Did not have vanilla. I Substituted the milk for thickened coconut cream and maybe a couple tablespoons of soymilk, just so it would be thick. I used 2 T agave nectar and a pinch of stevia. It had a strong chocolate flavor and really took care of my sweet tooth! This recipe is very versatile! Thank you.

  105. Sanskar Shrivastava says

    I have never had avocado chocolate mousse, but I can almost imagine its consistency. It must taste delicious. Thank you for the recipe! I have to try it. It is so amazing to see people experimenting with vegan dishes and creating new concepts!

  106. Holly Couch says

    This is my go-to chocolate mousse recipe! It’s absolutely delicious and satisfies my sweets craving every time. Thanks, Katie!

  107. Seema says

    OMG… I just tried this review recipe and it’s absolutely delicious!!! My husband is diabetic and this is the perfect easy guilt free dessert to satisfy his sweet tooth. Thank you so much ☺

  108. Michelle R. Woodby says

    I didn’t have dutch cocoa so I used regular. I can’t have dairy, so chips are usually out of the running for me. While the texture was amazing, it seemed odd in terms of smell and taste. Perhaps my avocados were a little old, as they sat for a week (although they looked perfect inside!). In the future, I will not mix chocolate with avocados. I prefer them separate. Thanks for the recipe though – I had been wanting to try it!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi! Unfortunately it really is the dutch cocoa that makes all the difference in this recipe. Subbing regular unsweetened cocoa will change the flavor completely.

  109. Tom says

    Question: 240 grams? Is that per avocado or is that the total weight of the avocado flesh in this recipe?
    I am a newbie in the kitchen… as if you couldn’t tell!

  110. Sue says

    OMG – you are a lifesaver, am a newbie to vegan and kinda had a sweet tooth going on. This recipe was the perfect recipe I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and no you cannot tell its based on Avocado!!! Thanks a million

  111. TinaB says

    I have to ask if you have ever tried half cocoa and half melted chips? I think I may actually try out 1/4 cup cocoa powder with 1/8th cup melted Lily’s dark mini chips & 1/8 cup raw cacao powder to give it a robust all around decadent chocolate flavor… I’ll come back & lyk how that version turns out ❤️

  112. S says

    This is delicious! I actually didn’t even need to add any sweetener—the chocolate chip version was plenty sweet, I think! Thanks for the recipe!

  113. Vyci Duarte says

    I do a keto diet so I used Swerve sweetener and cream for the liquid. I put in a heaping 1/2 cup swerve and 7 tablespoons of the cream. It was really creamy and smooth and quite yummy. Thank you!

  114. Allison says

    HOLY CRAP KATIE! Your Avocado Mousse is INSANE! I am literally jumping around my living from how good this tastes and the fact that I can finally eat chocolate mousse again! OH. MY. GOD!
    Can’t wait to try out your other recipes as this is the first one I’ve done.
    I used 1/4 cup of Agave for sweetener and used Cacao powder instead of cocoa.

  115. Jenny says

    I tried this recipe tonight. I loved the texture but too avocado-y for my family. I think if I had added a banana maybe it would taste less like avocado. Or maybe some but butter… we froze the left overs so maybe my family will like it more like icecream.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi! Just wanted to make sure, did you use dutch cocoa as opposed to regular? (Important for masking the avocado.) Also I’ve found in recipes that peppermint extract and instant coffee are both great ways to mask other flavors!

      • Jenny says

        Thanks for the tip. I don’t think the cocoa we have is Dutch (and I never figured out the difference!). This did make delicious fudgsicles after freezing it in popsicle moulds.

        • Jason Sanford says

          Look for the words “processed with alkali” on the label and that means it’s dutch. Otherwise it’s just regular 🙂

  116. naomi winkel says

    Avocados are on sale this week at Aldi for $.49 this week so I picked up a couple of them. I’m excited to try this receipe.

  117. Toni Bailey says

    Oh. My. GOSH! This is Wonderful!! Aldis had avocados for 39c, and I bought 20!
    I froze a bit of the leftover, and it was indescribably Delicious.

    No pictures. We Ate it Before we could get the camera out!

  118. Maya says

    Just made this tonight and it’s really good! I added a bit more salt and syrup, and that helped a lot cover up the slight avocado taste (my avocados were a little sad, so I feel like fresher ones maybe wouldn’t have this issue). I’ve been having such intense cravings for rich, chocolate sweets (which I rarely have!) since rejigging my diet for health reasons, so this recipe is gold.

    I’m just wondering, how do you store leftovers? No one has mentioned that and I’m the only one who can eat avocados in my house. Does it freeze well?
    Thanks for the recipe!!

    • Jason Sanford says

      I haven’t tried freezing it and would love to know if it works. Refrigerating covered will last a few days.

  119. Faith says

    Hey Katie!
    I used honey for mine. I had to add 2-ish cups of milk to get a good texture (and that was so much milk i had to add another 1/4 cup coca!)
    I really like it! Much more detailed, rounded and full flavor than box chocolate pudding!
    (Sorry, I have synesthesia, no idea how to explain the difference in taste normally…)

  120. Angelina says

    Katie, I had no idea about the salt, but it really makes the pudding so much better. Having now made it without (a different recipe) and with, it makes a huge difference!! I used just normal cocoa powder (as that’s all I had) and I used pure maple syrup to sweeten it. Delicious. Thanks again!

  121. Oana says

    I’m enjoying right now. ❤️ Smooth and rich, love it!
    I didn’t make it look to appealing hahaha but it is very tasty.

  122. Janis Bartels says

    My husband is not an avocado fan, but I tried this recipe anyway. I don’t recommend using a blender unless you have a really powerful one. This recipe would have been much faster, easier and smoother with a food processor. I kept stopping and stirring, added more milk and more maple syrup to increase the liquid portion, and finally got it sort of smooth enough. We put whipped cream on it and my husband really liked it. And you’re right – you can’t taste the avocado. He had no idea it was in there.
    Good recipe. But next time I’ll use the food processor!

  123. Saràchi says

    I tried it and it came out more like pudding than mousse in terms of texture. BUT, that may be because I added about 1/6c of oat milk to the unsweetened baker’s chocolate that I melted. Or, because I used a blender and not one of those whip cream makers. I also added a lot more “sugar” (in this instance, I used 1/3c of coconut sugar). Maybe I’ll try maple syrup next time ?. Otherwise, I’m happy with g dessert. I’ve put some in the freezer and will try it on this hot northeast summer day.

  124. Luvs2Cook says

    Have been trying a lot of vegan (or as close to it as I can) recipes lately. Saw this and was skeptical, but after making chocolate chip cookie dough dip decided to try this one.

    The only substitution I made was carob powder in place of the Dutch cocoa. It was fabulous! You can’t really taste the avocado, and it was VERY rich. I used coconut milk, which is the only kind of milk I use now. Yum!!

    If anyone is on the fence about this, please try it! Depending on your taste, the sugar /milk may need adjusting. This is a very dark rich chocolate flavor.

    I can finally make snacks & dinners more healthy (recently had to go to a low sugar, low carb, gluten free, yeast free diet as a result of a hospital stay in which a whole slew of food sensitivities were discovered – no choice here, it was for my life – and wow is that hard, but with recipes like this it makes the transition much easier – THANK YOU! What I thought was going to be the end of my yummy elaborate dinners (oh yeah! I love to cook! Homemade lasagnas, heavy cream sauces, lots of rich labor intensive meals) and the beginning of tasteless bland meals and mostly raw veggies, is turning out to be a fun adventure. It’s even inspired me to carefully log my successful attempts – adapting recipes around all my food sensitivities. Maybe one day I’ll attempt a blog or cookbook.

    p.s. As a side, the cookie dough dip was fabulous! I had to add a lot more oatmeal than suggested, but that’s just a taste thing – again, try it).

    I’ve book marked this site and it’s now one of my go-to’s for alternative recipes. Now I need to get my fiancé on board. He won’t even taste what I made if he knows it’s “alternative.” LOL. Not even a lick. The pudding & cookie dough were so good and he wrinkled his nose. Poor thing, doesn’t know what he’s missing! And that it’s healthier!

    Thank you, thank you for your recipes!!

    Hey! Thanks for the amazing recipe. I made mine with two ripe local avocados, 1/4 cup real semisweet chocolate chips (melted), Mexican vanilla extract, sea salt, and 1/4 cup raw non alkalinized Dominican cocoa powder, as well as 3.5tbsp full circle coconut milk. Amazing, tastes good and healthy. I wonder, though, why mine seems to have ended a bit more watery, yours looks thicker. I placed all the ingredients at full speed on my processor for about 1 minute… any suggestions!

    Thanks in advance. 5 stars.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi! Possibly your avocados were smaller than the ones Katie used? That’s the only thing I can think of. Or let it chill so the melted chocolate hardens? The mousse in the post’s photos is from the batch made in the video, which used almond milk. Glad yours tasted good in any case!

  126. Fang says

    Hi Katie,
    Does the recipe call for both regular cocoa powder AND Dutch cocoa or chocolate chips? I am a bit confused to try out, avocado is expensive here in Malaysia ?

  127. Donna Sammond says

    Yummy! My husband who hates avocados loved this mousse. I used almond milk, maple syrup and just cocoa and cacao powder. Also added about 2/4 teaspoon of espresso powder.

  128. Amber C says

    This was amazing! I didn’t have a processor, but I wisked it up as much as I could and I love it. Not a huge fan of the avocado taste.. but I also don’t mind it. Definitely something I’m going to make again and write in my cookbook for special events.

  129. Britt says

    I just made this tonight and not only was it a quick and easy treat to make but it was also surprisingly delicious! I’ll certainly be making this again! Thanks for the recipe.

  130. Neida Kamali says

    Hi Katie, I was looking for different ways to use my avocados. I am from Miami Florida and I have a large avocado tree. Usually Ig eat them fresh, make guacamole or given them away. My son loves chocolate and I love avocados. This is the best combination I have heard and its healthy. I follow your easy recipe and I used my Vitamix blender and it was completly smooth. For the sweeteners I used 3 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of raw honey. This is a keeper for me! Thank you for your healthy recipe and I will use it every year when my tree provides me those lovely avocados.

  131. Kinsey says

    I love this recipe so much! It’s my first one of yours I’ve made, Katie, and I will be back to your site for many more! I’m serving it tonight for a dinner party with raspberries on top and I had a little extra after I filled the little bowls I’m serving it in—my guests are lucky there will be any left for them at all! It’s SO good! My 2 year old also gives his “deeeeelicious” seal of approval ?

  132. Casey Denhoff says

    This was delicious. I had left over avocados from a party that didn’t happen so I decided to try this. I loved it and I felt very good about not wasting the avocado as well. Especially good if you are trying to avoid dairy although that is not my issue. It is a perfect gluten free dessert with all the benefits of avocado and the luxury of chocolate. This would work as a filling between chocolate cookies or cake as well. I will make this again and not tell anyone they are eating avocado. I put some whipped creme on it – too decadent. Thanks

  133. Akina Koh says

    This was creamy, decadent and delicious! I used Natvia stevia powder as sweetener and added extra almond milk. I didn’t really need to add extra dark chocolate. It was already creamy and sweet enough for me! Hubby and kids loved it, too!

  134. Bek says

    Just made this and it’s soooo good, really mellow flavour, great when you don’t want something too rich. I melted 70% dark chocolate instead of choc chips and I used agave and cashew milk.

    Not sure if tofu or avocado is my fave base for a vegan chocolate mousse, they’re both so yummy!

  135. Rachel says

    My son has a lot of allergies and is turning 1 in two weeks. I made this to use as a frosting so he could have something resembling a cake. I just did the avocados and enjoy life chocolate chips blended and then added some of his formula for the liquid. Turned out great he loves it and I am so excited he will get a birthday “cake” thank you!

  136. Melissa says

    Dear Katie,
    I found your webside by luck. I am trying the keto diet as I found out that I am diabetic a few months ago. I come from Bavaria, Germany. I am excited to try your recipes! I just made your Keto Cookies and I already fell in love with them. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us! I am so glad I found this page.
    I wish you a belated happy new year

    Melissa P.

  137. Eileen says

    I just made the Chocolate Avocado Mousse and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Thank you. I do have a question though. Do you add 1/4 cup cocoa powder AND 1/4 cup Dutch Chocolate, or just 1/4 cup of one of them? I did only 1/4 cup of the Dutch.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, you add both in the original… but if you liked it with just the one, then it sounds like there’s no reason to do anything differently next time!

  138. Alanna says

    I’ve made this recipe many times now and feel compelled to write a review. It is so scrumptious and like “the real thing” that when I catch myself chastising myself for eating too much, I have to remember… it IS health food!

  139. Karen says

    OMG this is heaven! I can’t have dairy and sometimes crave “creamy” desserts. I only had one avocado so I made half the recipe with Orgain Keto Powder in chocolate since I didn’t have any other cocoa powder on hand. Its amazing and feels so decadent. A new favorite for sure. Thank you for sharing!

  140. Debi says

    So, so good. Really creamy. I used the dutched cocoa to keep the calories lower. I can’t say enough good about this treat.

  141. sammi says

    creamy, rich, and smooth! this recipe is perfect when you have avos that all go ripe at once❤️ super chocolate oh and decadent. i like to add coconut cream to the top of mine to counteract the rich chocolaty-ness. i just pop a can of coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours and scrape the top off for cream!

  142. Gina B. says

    This recipe is seriously SO GOOD. We’ve made it two different ways. If any of y’all are more health conscious, we can confirm that using 1/4 cup of a monkfruit erythritol sweetener blend, 1/4 cup + 2 T. cocoa powder, and 2 T. chocolate protein powder is DELICIOUS.

  143. Rebecca says

    This was absolutely delicious! I split mine up into 4 portions and put them each into the half peels of the avocados and let them set. They fit perfectly and eating it right out of the shell is such an interesting and surprisingly convenient experience! Just throw it in the compost, no need for dishwashing!

  144. Kennedy says

    THIS WAY INSANELY GOOD!!! you of course cant pretend that theres no avocados in it because it does have a but of a raw natural after-taste to it but everyone seems to love it!!

  145. Dominique says

    OMG thank you so much for this recipe! I had 2 over-ripened avocados so I wanted to figure out how to use them. I didn’t have everything in your recipe so I made a few changes. I only used 1/2c of cocoa powder, a couple tablespoons of sweetened condensed coconut milk and some organic vanilla extract…nothing else. It was amazing! My bf was out walking the dog so he didn’t know what I was doing. When he came back I asked him to try it before I told him what it was. My bf is VERY honest and if something isn’t good he will tell me (in a loving way of course). Anyways I asked how it tastes and he said “chocolate.” I asked if it tastes like anything else and he simply said “fudge.” When I told him what it was, he was genuinely surprised! I’m so happy for a healthier pudding for my cravings! Thanks again!

  146. Rosanne says

    Smooth & decadent just like you said. A bit difficult to mix in a blender. I should have used my food processor. Totally worth it! How can I leave a photo?

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, unfortunately the reader-image plugin was causing problems with the site so we had to get rid of it. We were really sad about not keeping it, because we loved getting to see all the photos 🙁

  147. Gayle Anne Lynch says

    The American Diabetes Association promotes a diet that perpetuates the disease.

    I’m shocked to see that you’re referencing them in this recipe.

  148. Bridget says

    I made this was quite delish and creamy though i could taste the avocado… I think 2 avocados might be too much? I used cacao power and 70% melted dark chocolate and I used half coconut sugar and half maple syrup. It didn’t taste chocolately enough for me ??? !!!

  149. Lara says

    This is truly delicious and creamy. I added a touch of orange extract (I love the dark chocolate/orange combo) and it turned out wonderfully!

  150. Chels says

    This is so incredibly perfect to use as fruit dip!!! It’s easier to go really light on the sugar when you have the super sweetness from the fruit. This is definitely going to be a go to. So yummy and totally satisfies the craving for something sweet

  151. Colleen says

    Really enjoyed this recipe, an easy pantry staple snack! I choose to double the cocoa powder instead of melting chocolate chips, but if I were serving to others, definately will add the chocolate chips!

  152. Jess says

    This is very delicious and good to use up avocados that you aren’t able to eat in time. Used the chocolate chips and a little less sweetener. Doesn’t taste like avocado either.

  153. Tabatha says

    How long would this last in the fridge? I ask because i am curious if you can make it ahead of time? Please let me know thanks….and remember Jesus Saves and He is coming back!!

  154. Confused says

    Yeah, I don’t understand the
    Great reviews. There doesn’t seem to be the complete recipe – just the ingredients list in the video and just the part about the ingredients being added to the blender jar in the video. No instructions on keeping in fridge or anything!

  155. Emma says

    So delicious and rich!! I had 2 avocados that were browning pretty quickly and it STILL tasted good. I used Rodelle dutch cocoa…highly recommend.

  156. Spandana Goli says

    Katie I love you!!!I can now enjoy chocolate mousse guilt-free!I had a bowl on berries n bananas I meant to eat n forgot which I then dipped in the mousse.Needless to say I died and am in heaven😬.Thank you!Thank you!Thank you!

  157. Brittney says

    I love this recipe! I can taste a hint of avocado, but I don’t mind it. It’s the perfect little treat when I need something sweet. It’s really filling so a few bites go a long way. I will definitely make it again.

  158. Michelle Caylor says

    Thank you for posting this recipe. I will be trying other recipes you posted.

    I have tried Avocado Mousse before. I really like this recipe. There was no need to let the flavors marry. I used maple syrup as my sweetener.

  159. anna says

    I just made the avocado chocolate pudding tonight and it was really easy to make and tasted great and very filling! I was going to have ice cream and chocolate sauce but decided to try this instead – I feel really good and not guilty – so thanks!

  160. beeple says

    so delicious! I didn’t have ripe avocados so I did 1 and 1/2 unripe avocados and an overripe banana and it worked so well!

  161. Phoenix says

    Thumbs up from me and my fiance, both diabetic (I’m vegan and he’s not). Made using half regular cocoa, half melted sugar free keto chocolate chips, Now brand chocolate monkfruit drops, and cashew/almond milk. Thank you for the recipe Katie.

  162. Kathleen Murphy says

    This was delicious. I used the melted chocolate chips, and heavy cream. I started out with 2 tablespoons of confectioners Swerve but kinda had a bite to it so added a tablespoon of granulated xylitol and another tablespoon of heavy cream to mix in the xylitol (5 tablespoons of cream). Very rich and yummy. It was so easy to make definitely a keeper. I give it 5/5 stars

  163. Leida says

    Loved the chocolate mouse recipe. I only had one avocado so I basically 1/2 the recipe-except for the maple syrup and a bit more almond milk. Yes, we have a sweet tooth! Thank you!!

  164. Vanessa says

    I made this with maple syrup as a sweetener, the melted chocolate chips, and a half/half mix of cocoa and cacao powders. I could definitely still taste the avocado. I even added a little powdered sugar after mixing and tasting all the ingredients because the avocado flavor was so strong. It was ok but I wouldn’t make it again.

  165. Angela says

    Delicious! I substituted the chocolate chips for ‘Swiss Miss’ milk hot chocolate mix since that’s just what I had in my pantry, but it worked out well since I didn’t end up needing as much of the sweetener (agave maple syrup) since it gave it some more sweetness. I sprinkled coarsely chopped toasted Almonds when serving!

  166. Belinda Lee says

    so could I use cacao powder instead of cocoa powder (cacao is better supposedly with anti-oxidants)?
    Also how many servings does this make as I’m only a one person household?
    thanks guys, just found your site today

  167. Maya says

    I am on a vegan keto diet so I melted dark chocolate and mixed it in with the avocado mixture. I added 2 scoops chocolate protein powder and had to add a lot more almond milk. It’s silky and delicious! Thank you

  168. Diana Lemon says

    Hello and thank you for printing this recipe! However, I could not find a video to watch the prep part and its kind of vague as far as what to do. If you could kindly email me at I would appreciate it!

  169. Isobel Stewart says

    hey, I don’t know what went so wrong for me but this turned out quite bitter and tasted very much of avocado and not much of chocolate. In the UK I think all cocoa powder is dutch processed so I didn’t have any ‘regular’ stuff but I assumed this wouldn’t be a problem. I used honey instead of maple syrup which would have also made a difference but even after adding quite a bit more honey it wasn’t great. Any suggestions?

    • CCK Media Team says

      Substituting all dutch would unfortunately definitely alter the taste. The initial 1/4 cup does need to be regular cocoa.

  170. Percy Febres says

    About two years ago, a then-gf (almost Vegan) and I (now Vegan), decided to make a vegan recipe chocolate mousse. At that time, if memory serves me right, we used avocados and soft TOFU and it turned out DE-LI-CIOUS.
    Flash-forward to two months ago. I wanted to make this recipe for my sister and her family but I couldn’t find it (then-gf has it…gosh!), so I found YOURS 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I have to say that even without the tofu, the mousse still came out so creamy and tasty that my not-very-healthy-eating bro-in-law couldn’t say no to trying it.
    I’m stoked to find you posting this and other dairy-free, yummi-licious foods.

  171. Margaret Leon says

    Just made the avocado mousse and love it, I used chestnut honey and some Xylitol for sweetener. Think next time I will use maple syrup. Love your black bean brownies as well!

  172. Stephanie says

    This recipe does not need 2 avocados. Would like to try this with one, unless you want to taste the avocado. Extra fat that is unnecessary if you ask me. I also needed a little more maple syrup and dash of cinnamon to cover that avocado taste. I needed more liquid also. It was good in the end.

  173. Kari says

    “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!!

    • Jrose says

      OMG I thought this recipe was great the way it was. I cat stand the taste of avocado and this recipe left me wondering if I forgot to put the avocado into it. This is a great way to get the healTh benefits of avocado without the taste.

  174. Wendy Sistrunk says

    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!

  175. 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!

  176. Camille says

    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.

  177. Sharon says

    Most Definately the most delicious avocado mousse. YUM!!!
    I used almond milk & monkfruit sweetener & it’s not overly sweet but for me its sweet enough & rich enough. I used 1/2 cup cocoa powder & no choc bits. Really nice.

  178. William says

    I’m sorry but I tried this and wasn’t a fan of it as is. Maybe it depends on the quality of ingredients but I find it to taste too much of avocado. So to fix that I added juice from 1 orange and zest from about 1/2 of that orange. For those who like orange dark chocolate then it’s a winner 🙂 I think I might have added a 1/4 more of melted chocolate and maybe 1 or 1/2 more avocado so it wasn’t too liquidy. I can’t remember but I hope this idea helps others who don’t like the recipe as is.

  179. Laura says

    Hi Kari, I find with avo desserts it all depends on how ripe the fruit is. Only just ripe is best as it imparts less avocado flavour. You treat a banana oppositely – very ripe to give a banana cake its flavour, and a very ripe avo is a bit like that so I go as under-ripe as possible without still being hard for an avo dessert. Also early season avocados (spring) have less flavour than late (autumn/fall) imo. It’s spring here and new season avos are plentiful so I’m making this dessert tonight!

  180. Bela Khanna says

    Hi Katie, you are a genius! I made this yesterday and it was heavenly! I used Ghirardelli Dutch process cocoa and monk fruit sweetener and no one could tell it was a ‘healthy’ mousse! It is also totally riffable so next time I may add a flavor like some Grand Marnier. Thank you for your incredible recipes that are helping me stay healthy while enjoying delicious food!!

  181. Yolanda says

    This mousse is amazing! It is so rich and delicious. I use high grade dark chocolate to get the best results! I use organic everything including the maple syrup. Everyone that tastes it…, loves it!

    • Holly says

      I have frozen it and it’s great! I didn’t let it thaw all the way after I froze it, though, so I can’t say what the consistency would be if you thawed it all the way. I ate it while still frozen but soft—maybe more like frozen chocolate custard—and it was delicious.

  182. Felicity says

    would there be any difference between using dutch cocoa and normal cocoa? Because we can’t get dutch cocoa around here 🙂

  183. RiaSunflower says

    Ooops forgot to say I didn’t have any vanilla and I forgot the salt but since I increased the vegan chocolate (orange and almond) and therefore used much less maple syrup it seemed it wasn’t missed. 🙂

  184. Terrie Ann says

    I think of Hershey’s Cocoa as regular cocoa. I looked for Dutch Cocoa and keep getting results that say Hershey’s is Dutch Cocoa. I’m confused. Hoping to fix this for Thanksgiving but I’m not sure about the two different cocoas.

    • Patricia says

      Dutch cocoa is a dark chocolate cocoa. Hershey’s makes both a regular chocolate cocoa and a dark chocolate cocoa. I really like dark chocolate, so for this recipe I will just use all dark chocolate cocoa.

  185. Billee says

    I used coconut milk. 5 tbls. sweetened with maple syrup, added a little extra. So delish!!! This is a great recipe for Paleo dieters.

  186. Amber says

    Fantastic!! Just like chocolate mousse.
    My husband I recently went on a getaway, and my husband had brought some chocolate avocado mousse for me to try from a restaurant. I was shocked at how good it was, so wanted to recreate it. This recipe is probably even better then what we had on our getaway.
    Very rich, creamy, and hits the spot if you need a chocolate fix. I used the maple syrup as the sweetener, and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe. My 3 year old also loves this!

  187. Karla Machio says

    for your information: I’ve been a diabetic for 30 years. for some diabetics, any kind of carbohydrates; even complex carbohydrates.. are a nightmare. the only carbohydrates I eat anymore are what comes in cruciferous vegetables, black beans and sweet potatoes. Any kind of grain sends my blood glucose skyrocketing. i eat meats and veggies and use fats within reason. for sweetness, i use banana or swerve sweetener. and many humans, btw should get closer to 70% of their calories from fats (nuts, etc) and ZERO grains. the human body does not need them. the human body will get its energy from the fats consumed. the food pyramid is skewed and for the purpose of making money for people who grow and sell grains 🙂

    • Maureen says

      You should read Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes without Drugs. Hope this helps!

  188. Georgina says

    Just make some and it tastes great, I put it in little bowls and placed them in the fridge. I will add some coconut and nuts on top later and eat some of this delicious vegan pudding 🙂

  189. Kimberly Moudy says

    Fantastic! I made this and shared with one of my co-workers, two thumbs up! Well, I guess it would be 4 thumbs up! Thank you for the recipe!

  190. Leslie Wrobel says

    So delicious! You can’t even taste the avocado! Be sure to weigh your avocados before using them. I only used one as it weighed 232 grams. Thanks for the sharing!

  191. Trista says

    Hi darling! I absolutely LOVE avocados and chocolate so this recipe really drew my attention. Unfortunately, I always do these cooking projects with my sister, and she doesn’t want to make this. I was just wondering if you can use Stevia in this. Thanks!

  192. Tona says

    I just made this for the first time. I used erythritol for my sweetener and added almost 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk. I also used Dutch processed chocolate instead of chips. Was so decadent and creamy!

  193. Kari Wishingrad says

    I made this for Christmas and everyone loved it!
    I prepared it on Thursday but I actually think it tastes better today, Saturday.
    Flavors melded some more. I used Lily’s chocolate chips (stevia sweetened).
    One person said it could’ve been sweeter, however I may add a bit less maple syrup for myself next time. I also decorated the top with some walnuts, coconut flakes and chocolate chips. Next time I may chop up walnuts and add to the pudding itself.
    Easy breezy, healthy and delicious!
    Thank you!

  194. Lizette Blackwell says

    Delicious! Made this in my vitamix and followed the recipe exactly. I used Hershey’s Cocoa (100% Cacao powder natural unsweetened). I can see myself tossing some Lily’s chocolate chips on top when I eat a few more bites. I also like the idea of sprinkling coconut flakes! This was really, REALLY yummy! I had to put it away or I would have eaten it all in one sitting.

  195. SHARON says

    Made with melted chips and maple syrup. No false advertising here! 😉 I could almost skip any other chocolate if I have this on hand. Well done, Katie!

  196. Suzanne Owens says

    Made this tonight. It was better then I thought it would be. Ha ha. We did add a little cinnamon to it and it made it even more delightful.
    Thanks Katie for another great one!!

  197. Taylor says

    I’ve made a chocolate avocado pudding before and tossed it after one bite.. so I want to reiterate, does it really not just taste avocadoey??? I like avocados on toast but when I made a different recipe it was soooo bad. Just chocolate with avocado. Those just didn’t mix taste wise for me. But ive heard raves about how some you can’t even tell there’s avocado in it

  198. Kerry says

    This is the best recipe I have come across for avocado pudding. (I made it with the 2 types of cocoa and maple syrup). Kid approved 🙂

  199. Cheryl Masters says

    This recipe with the chocolate and the avocado looks delicious. When avocados are available again, it’s definitely on my gotta do list. I do have one question for you. Many, many, many years ago I found a recipe for chocolate mousse and put out by Knox gelatin. 50 years later, I can’t find it anywhere. Have you ever heard of this? Have you ever tried it? With so many moves, I have managed to lose the recipe, but I really, really wish I could find it again. I would appreciate any help at all in finding it again. Thank you for any help that can be offered.

  200. Juli says

    Definitely looking forward to trying this. Clarifying questions for the chocolate chips…should I measure out 1/4 cup of chips then melt or should I start with more chocolate chips so it equals 1/4 cup when melted?

  201. Sydney says

    This was so good!
    I halved the recipe as I only had 1 avocado and used maple syrup with the Dutch cocoa. It was so rich and delicious, I couldn’t even taste the avocado. It made 2 servings and I can tell you that the serving size is generous – as someone who loves chocolate, this was packed full of chocolatey flavor.

  202. Lani says

    I’m a bit confused, the recipe states cocoa powder then also Dutch cocoa powder OR chips BUT in the video only one kind of chocolate is added?

  203. Valerie Borkstrom says

    It is delicious. I used raw agave syrup with the semi sweet chocolate chips. It tastes like a chocolate banana split without the ice cream. I have little chunks of avocado though that I did not smooth out.

  204. Dr_b_ says

    This is really delicious. Used unsweetened chocolate chips (pascha brand), and honey for sweetener, and over-ripe avocados that weren’t presentable enough for another use.

  205. Daphne Woodhouse says

    This comment is for Cheryl Masters. Did you contact the Knox Gelatin people for the recipe using their product? That’s what I would suggest.

  206. Julie says

    SO. SO. GOOOOOD! A desert made from avocado?! No way I thought it would taste good, but I had to try it for myself since I’ve made several of Katie’s other non-conventional deserts like her chickpea cookie dough dip have NOT disappointed. It was so good I had my husband blind taste test it. He was shocked to hear the surprise ingredient. I will keep coming back to this recipe since it’s a great way to get healthy fats in without loading up on carbs 😁

  207. Lou says

    Really yummy, super quick and easy to make. Used Cadbury’s cocoa powder with mayple syrup plus some chia seeds for added 😇 points! Both husband and 7 year old enjoyed too. Don’t over think the recipe, throw stuff in and blitz. Ta da!

  208. Lil says

    Looking to make this. Can you use cacao?

    Also, how far ahead can you make it? Will it keep in the refrigerator a day or two?

  209. Aj says

    It’s decent! It’s really rich! I can still taste the avocado (which is unfortunate because disliking the taste is the reason why I wanted to make this recipe) but this is certainly palatable.

  210. Olivia says

    Holy crap. AMAZING! I’m not really a fan of avocados, and I can’t taste them at all in this recipe. I used dark cocoa power, milk chocolate chips, and avocados that were on the cusp of going bad. The taste and texture are the same as a dark chocolate truffle Hersey’s Kiss. Soooooo good!

  211. William O'Meara says

    Superb! Five stars! I used the two kinds of cocoa and the maple syrup as the sweetener. Since I had some dark chocolate chips in the pantry, I melted a few tablespoons in the microwave and added them (in addition to the two 1/4 cups of the cocoas). I didn’t have almond milk handy, and not being vegan (just vegetarian), I used 10% coffee cream. Just before serving, I sprinkled some icing sugar on top and plopped a few raspberries on top as well. You don’t taste the avocado at all. And unlike so many mousses, this one is just mildly sweet like a dark chocolate mousse.

  212. Sandy Coursey says

    Chocolate Avocado Mousse….Love it! Love it! Love it! Best healthy dessert ever. I love the taste of cocoa, so this hits the sweet spot of a rich, creamy dessert. Thank you!!

  213. Manon says

    Like La I, I’m a bit confused, the recipe states cocoa powder then also Dutch cocoa powder OR chips BUT in the video only one kind of chocolate is added?

  214. Brenda Lane says

    Just made this mousse for myself and my hubby. I didn’t tell him what was in it. He gobbled it right up and had no idea there was avocado in it. Yummy!!

  215. Lisa says

    This recipe is quite good. I could definitely taste avocado, but only vaguely. But I think I’m a super taster. I added about 3t more of dark cocoa powder. Still taste the avocado a bit but it’s not a bad taste anyway as I love avocados. Thanks!

  216. KRC says

    Loved the texture of this but as others said I needed it a bit sweeter. I added extra agave with the maple syrup amt in the recipe. Very nice. Thanks for this recipe. Great dessert.

    This is very good. Lovely texture. I used the melted chocolate option. Next time I would whizz the avocado with the milk first, before adding the other ingredients, as I don’t have a proper blender, just a little chopper, and it couldn’t quite cope with all the ingredients at once – there were lumps, so I had to seive it. But it was still really good and quite easy.

  218. Jenny says

    I didn’t think I’d be able to eat a full batch for myself so I made half the recipe in a personal blender – SO good!
    I used liquid stevia, almond milk, and the regular+dutch cocoas.
    It tastes just like eating BROWNIE batter (which I attribute to the addition of the Dutch cocoa) – no avocado taste at all.
    I will definitely make a full batch, next round. Thank you for sharing!

  219. jan says

    This was excellent! I used Truvia blend w/4 g carbs/tsp instead of Swerve (also 4g carbs) because Swerve leaves a terrible aftertaste. You would NEVER know it was made with avocados. I did use the melted sugar free chocolate chips. It’s like “death by chocolate”. Also added 1-2 Tbsp of powdered peanut butter just because.

  220. Maddy D says

    This was delicious!! I always got a craving for chocolate sweets, and I am glad I found a healthy option. I used melted semi-sweet chocolate, almond milk, and maple syrup, and it was to die for!

    Thank you for the recipe. 😀

  221. Satisfied says

    OMG! I just made this and it’s a hit in my household. I did add a bit more melted chocolate chips and cocoa powder because I was still able to taste a lot of the avocado. The kids don’t know I made the mousse with avocado and I am not going g to tell them.😉

  222. MW says

    Yum! I made this years ago, just to see if it hid the avocado taste … and it does.
    It’s great to eat “healthy” fat in a dessert. Thank you.

  223. Kristi Poirier says

    Just made some today. I used dark chocolate chips and maple syrup. I first added three tablespoons of milk. After scraping down my food processor I realized a fourth tablespoon would create a better consistency. Very delicious. I posted a pic on my Instagram and immediately had to send friends a link to your recipe. Thank you.

  224. Angel L says

    I don’t know what recipe you tried but I have one we made for my cancer-fighting brother that his officemates kept stealing out of the fridge at his office. No salt, just unsweet cocoa and cacao in equal amounts, 2 large or 4 small avocados, and a half dozen pitted figs blended with a tiny bit of almond/oats/rice/regular milk and a dash of vanilla extract. I don’t recall the exact amount of cocoa and cacao powder offhand, but keep adding it to the blender a teaspoon at a time until you get lovely mousse texture.

    You *can* add a tiny sprinkle of salt for a deeper, richer chocolate, but I’d rather just use dark cocoa right off. For variety, you can throw in a drop or two of orange, coffee, or peppermint extract. Or use espresso instead of the milk to make the figs smooth enough to blend with the avocados.

  225. Kathryn says

    Omg… amazing… I was sceptical!! I’m now a fan and this is going to have to go on my permanent deserts list!

  226. Steve Cummings says

    Avocados are so versatile. I told my friend to make an Avocado / banana/pineapple smoothie. And to layer it with chocolate pudding as a delicious and nutricious dessert. He said “Oh….no avocados in desserts for me….thank you.” Avocados are underappreciated. Your recipe is super! So glad for healthy living.

  227. Llewellyn says

    I had some gross looking avocado. I salvaged what I could from very ripe ones and placed them in the freezer. Just like bananas, these avocado worked AMAZING in this recipe. So glad because I could not eat them at their present state. LOL. I’m using it like Nutella on my by bread.

  228. Auntie Bee says

    I know I am super late to the party. But this is fantastic! I have a one month old at home and my daughter wants me to make vegan carrot cake from scratch for her birthday next week which is NOT going to happen. I made a test batch of this last night and everyone loved it.

    I’m doing a trial run for her cake now:
    Graham cracked crust, this amazing mousse, macerated strawberries with balsamic vinegar and homemade coconut whipped cream. Took me about 20 minutes to do all of it in between feeding the baby.
    I might try a banana in it too. Thank you so much!

  229. Kathy Khairuddin says

    Hi Katie thank you for sharing this beautiful recipe it’s the first time I have had avacodo in a sweet recipe and was not to sure about it but it was delicious!! Thank you so much you are helping me on my road to healthier eating!!

  230. Viviane Miller says

    🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I was always step back with chocolate and avocado together.
    This really works! Fantastic, I love the flavour and the texture 😋

  231. susan says

    LOVE this! easy peasy. added 1 more tbs of maple syrup and 1/4 cup melted chocolate in addition to the 1/2 cup cocoas per my 8 y/o feedback. Was a hit with the kids!!!!

  232. Janet says

    Love the receipt (avocado mousse), but cant take all the ad’s… OMG it takes away from all the beautiful work you put into your meals. Why, not get a regular website (commercial and ad free) that have nothing but your own receipts and products on it. I simply can’t take all the ads running and jumping around on the screen.

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi Janet, while we would absolutely love to have an ad-free website, that doesn’t pay the bills. This is Katie’s full time job, and she has high server costs and needs to pay for ingredients to experiment (not to mention make a living and pay her rent). If blogs do not have ads, then unfortunately that would mean the blogger would either have to charge a subscription fee or take the recipes offline and put them into recipe books that then the readers would have to pay for. This way, readers see the content for free so you don’t have to pay anything, and bloggers still get to do what they love 🙂

  233. Allyson says

    Great recipe! I made some coconut whipped cream and folded it into the mousse. Absolutely delicious!!

  234. Tom Watson says

    Avocado chocolate mousse a real winner. I like it with more chocolate so I used both cocoa and 72% dark chocolate with a bit of corn syrup for sweetener. Done in 5 minutes and my 4 year old grand daughter loves it.

  235. Wendy Golden says

    The best ever!!!! I couldn’t believe how rich and delicious this recipe turns out. Definitely a keeper! Putting the ingredients together is the easy part. Getting the mousse out of the vitamin took longer. Any suggestions on that?

  236. Catharina Lenehan says

    It was delicious. I used maple syrup and almond milk. I added more milk as it appeared very stiff. I also used thawed avocado chunks. These come frozen from Costco.

  237. Nancy says

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! Thank you for having it on your website. It’s hard to tell there are so many avocados in this. It’s very rich, dark chocolate. I have to admit I did not use a vegan chocolate with artificial sweetner. I used Ghiradelli and it was so yummy I am making it again soon.

  238. Melé says

    I made this in my vitamix blender and it came out great! My only suggestion would be to add a little more maple syrup.

  239. Rainey says

    Thank you so much for this recipe. My 5 year old wanted to make a chocolate pie and we used this as a filling. We made a bit too much and have tons of left over. We spread it on white bread and we can’t stop eating it. As per him, “it’s soo soo soo good that I can’t handle it. Super super very good.” Giant smiles on our faces. Thank you!

  240. Vava says

    I had to tweak this recipe ALOT to get it edible for me. Still used all natural vegan ingredients. I also added a banana because I could not get the avocado taste out. Unless it’s supposed to taste like that…Otherwise, great texture.

    I’ve made this recipe multiple times and have to say it’s fabulous. Every time I serve it some one asks for the recipe. This is truly a wonderful dessert. I’d give it more stars if I could!
    I wondered if you’ve ever tried to make brownies using this as a base? Maybe just add some kind of flour and baking soda? Do you think that could work?

      We are working on avocado brownies, so hopefully that recipe will be posted once we get it right!

    Amazing! The first time I made it, I didn’t have Dutch cocoa or chocolate chips and it was still great! That time I added 3 Tbsp whole milk. The second time I added the melted chocolate chips and 4Tbsp 1% milk and it was also great. Thank you so much!!

    This is seriously the best chocolate mousse I ever had!! How can avocado taste sooo good 😍🤩 I topped it off with strawberries, mint and crushed pistachio!!! Sooooo good even my 9 year old loved it. Thank you

  245. Ash says

    It was ok. Can taste the avocado a little bit. I added 1/2 tsp of raw honey to help with that. Looks like there’s a typo in the recipe since the YouTube video only shows one type of 1/4 cup cocoa and I only used 1/4 not twice

  250. Gulcan says

    I’ve tried your recipe. Not sure if it was the brand of cacao I see, was a bit bitter. And i use coconut cream cream instead milk, so i add more cream to balance the bitterness. It worked very well and so delicious result. Thanks for the recipe and the idea. Now i know what to do with my over-ripe avocados 😍

    5 stars
    This is a fantastic recipe! Two things I did differently. I used 4 Wholly Avocado minis because I have trouble determining when an avocado is past its time. With adding all the other ingredients it came out fabulously. The other thing I did was I froze them for my husband’s lunch! He is a professor and needs a wee bit of a jolt to get him through the afternoon teaching, grading, meetings, etc. This dessert is perfect! Thank you!

    • Cyndi Froehlich says

      Thank you, I was trying to figure out how many minis to use! I wanted to cut the recipe in 1/2 and this is perfect!!

    Had always been curious to try an avocado chocolate “mousse/pudding” recipe, and found your recipe and finally tried it – why did I wait so long?!! This is delicious! My avocados must’ve been a bit on the small side as I only got 2 servings (rather then 4), and used the melted choc. chips and maple syrup options. Absolutely divine! Also great to find more delish ways to use up ripe avocados. Thanks for the recipe.

    I’m a (vegan) firefighter, and the guys I work with couldn’t believe that this is vegan! It’s wonderfully light in texture for having ingredients that could be heavy (avocados, chocolate chips, cocoa) and I love that you can vary the sweetness level

    I haven’t made this in awhile but was craving something decadent and chcolatey and it hit the spot! I’ve always used the option for 1/4 c melted chocolate chips instead of Dutch cocoa and it turns out perfect, no avocado taste. Also, I just gotta say I get a great laugh out of some of these comments. You’re the best as always, CCK!

  256. Mel says

    This recipe is a keeper, I will make it again and again.
    It came out chocolatey with no hint of avocado taste, and was super fast and easy to make.
    I made it in my food processor and got a beautiful smooth creamy texture.
    I used the regular and dutch cocoa powder, coconut milk, and a little extra maple added for my sweet tooth. Took only 5 minutes to put together and pop in the fridge to chill. Thank you <3

    I made this but with organic cacao. BEST chocolate mousse I have ever tasted. Rich, creamy, and when I serve it no one believes there is avocado in it. I sweetened with some Maple syrup and Allulose to make it lower in sugar.

    This is great! I too had tried an avocado chocolate mousse once upon a time that was not not not good. Tasted mainly of avocado. This is so much better. An actual creamy dessert! Now, as written, with just cocoa, it was too dark for me, so I made it again with 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup Dutch processed cocoa (I like that better than “natural” cocoa powder) and the full 3 Tbs milk and I thought it made a simple decadent dessert. I’ve been on a bit of a nutella kick lately, so I also made a serving swirled with hazelnut butter and that was excellent too. Thanks for sharing your recipe and for getting me to revisit avocado chocolate desserts. Good stuff!

  263. Andrea says

    This was one of the first recipes I made for my daughter when she had to go dairy free. She was little and so sad to give up so many things she enjoyed. This put a giant smile on her little face!😊 Since then we’ve learned how to make most all things dairy free. Your chocolate granola and the chocolate covered cherry smoothie are our top favorites I think. Thanks so much for all the great recipes!

I used dark chocolate chips, and it was so rich, creamy, and decadent! 10/10- thank you!

  269. Barbara Tetter says

    I made this recipe everyone loved it. How far in advance can you make this and can it be frozen?

    • CCK Media Team says

      It can definitely be made a day or two in advance, but we would not recommend freezing it because you’d get an icy texture.

  270. Darcie says

    Hi! Although this recipe looks delicious, I have to ask how you arrived at the net carbs when 1/4 cup of maple syrup alone has around 55 grams? Is the nutrition based on the way you make it, or using another keto friendly sweetener? Also, what kind of chocolate chips are you using? Thanks 🙂

  271. Annette says

    Made this for company. Had six beautiful avocados from Costco so this recipe was perfect for using two. Classic chocolate mousse is very rich and can be a tad heavy after a full dinner. This provided that deep chocolate flavor ( I used 1/3 instead of 1/4 cup melted dark 72% cocoa chocolate chips) and the satisfying creamy mouth feel of a traditional egg custard without the guilt.
    I will definitely make this again.

  273. Liz says

    This chocolate mousse is perfect! I’ve tried making chocolate mousse with silken tofu and with coconut milk/cream and I find them both a little bit sickly. I’m not a fan of avocados but I’m on keto so I’ve been trying to incorporate them into my diet, and wow, this recipe blew me away! I made the cocoa powder version with powdered erythritol instead of syrup and double the almond milk, I also added 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder and it turned out beautifully! 😍 I’ll definitely be making this again and again!

  275. Bagpuss66 says

    I used 1/4 cup of vanilla protein powder instead of the regular cocoa and 1/4 cup of the Dutch processed cocoa and it was/is delicious. This will now be my go to desert as it is lovely to eat and so easy to make. Thank you for the recipe.
    Much love from Sheffield UK.

    This avocado mousse was delicious. I was looking for something that could replace an unhealthy box of chocolate pudding. It’s a little thicker than pudding but if that’s a problem just add more milk. I used oat milk. I used maple syrup. I doubled the recipe but no need to double the maple syrup. Wonderful creamy dessert!!!

  277. Paula says

    How many cups of avocado is in this recipe? Avocados vary in size. We have huge avocados on our tree, 2-4 pounds each. I would love to make this recipe but if I use 2 of my avocados I don’t think the proportions will work out. I anyone knows, please let me know. Mahalo

    I just made two batches of avocado mousse. Both are good even though they didn’t turn out the same.
    One is darker and stiffer. The other light and silky soft.
    The dark one I blended the maple syrup and milk together then folded in the cocoa powder and melted chocolate.

    The other I blended the best I could after all ingredients were in since the avocado wasn’t quite smooth then folded in the melted chocolate.

    Whatever the case they aren’t the same. Maybe a difference in the avocado.

      So i made a double batch. I melted 1/2 cup of sugar-free choc chips with only 2 tbsp of almond milk. Mixed everything with a food processor and it turned out great. It was thick enough to frost a cake and make some decorations with a piping bag. And it tastes great!

    I made this tonight and to be honest I was seriously skeptical, but to my surprise this recipe is fantastic. I can’t even believe how silky and rich, this chocolate creamy pudding is.
    I used unsweetened almond milk for the milk and 1/4 cup of honey for the sweetener. I plan to freeze some into pudding pops with the next batch. Thank you soooooooo much for sharing this delicious recipe. I can’t wait to make this for the next work party. ❤️

    Excellent the next day! I was disappointed right after I made it, because I just didn’t think it tasted that good. I put it in a covered bowl in the fridge, and the next day tried it again. Wow! It was amazing! Decadent chocolate mousse! I made a double batch, and it’s been in the fridge now for 4 days and it still tastes so good!
    I used monk fruit for the sweetener, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I used a little more almond milk than the recipe calls for because I used the dry monk fruit. Excellent!!

    I’ve made this several times now, and it is delicious and easy to make. It is sooo good!! You’d never know there is avocado in this mousse.
    I add a little more almond milk, and I use half the sweetner because I love dark chocolate. My son, who doesn’t like avocado, didn’t believe there was avocado in the recipe. It was quite a hit!
    I make a double batch – It’s a healthy daily treat!

    This is what’s been missing in my life since I switched my diet to GF/DF! This recipe is simple to make, and the mousse tastes delicious:) I used agave syrup as sweetener, and I replaced Dutch cocoa with Trader Joe’s chocolate cocoa mix. While going deep into the pantry to retrieve regular cocoa powder, I noticed an unopened bag of shredded coconut. I normally don’t change anything when making a new recipe, but it just felt like a right choice;) I added about 2 tbs and the final result was amazing! Avocados make this mousse light, but rich and creamy at the same time. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    For my taste buds I had to double the vanilla so one teaspoon of vanilla and I added a little bit more salt. For the consistency I also ended up adding an extra tablespoon of milk I used silk coconut milk. For the sweetener I used a combination of sugar and stevia and it did taste wonderful I don’t think anyone would know that it contained avocado. It tastes good swirled with sour cream too if you like the taste of sour cream and chocolate.

    This was ridiculously delicious. Very smooth texture, super simpler to make. Was licking the spoon in anticipation of it setting in the fridge, only to discover, it already has a pudding like texture without setting. Hoping once it sets it has more of a mousse texture. But either way, can’t wait to eat the cold product in a few hours.
    Will definitely make again. I ended up putting in 5Tbsp of milk instead of 4 as I didn’t quite have enough maple syrup.
    Thanks for sharing

        Update: made with only cocoa powder this time. I got a bunch of avocados on sale that needed to be used up so made 2 double batches. For each batch, used a ripe frozen (thawed) banana and a little 2% milk. On one batch I used saccharine for sweetner and the other used sugar. I put them in little 4 oz canning jars. These freeze up amazingly and are wonderful to pull out of the freezer for a nice taste of dessert. Thank you for the recipe!!

    This recipe is absolutely epic. I cannot believe how good this tastes AND how good it is for you. I used the raw cocoa and Dutch cocoa, and tweaked the other quantities just a little bit. I now have no reason to buy ice cream again.
