Chocolate ‘mousse’

I’m not going to lie … I love chocolate and I really, really miss it!

So, here is my way to get a bit of a chocolate fix in an allergy friendly way … and sneak some goodness in on the side! I really know that you can’t tell that it is avocado based because even my 2 little avocado haters wolf it down!!

It’s an adaption of a recipe from ‘The Lunchbox Lady’.

  • 2 large very ripe avocados
  • 3tbsp cocoa
  • 4tbsp honey/maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice.

Whizz it all together in the food processor until smooth. (Speed 6 in 10 second lots, scraping down between each time).

Best served chilled. It keeps for a few days in the fridge or you can freeze it to make chocolate icecreams.

Enjoy … I know I will!

  1. I am going to make this right now – thanks! Avocado and banana ice blocks are favourites in our house but a bit of chocolate has to be a winner!

      1. Loved it!! It was a winner. Had to make a couple of small adjustments with the ingredients we have available in Tanzania but it was still great! Thanks.

  2. good news! Yes, I had to change it to fit the ingredients I could buy in the desert so I imagine it would be even trickier for you!!

  3. I’m about to attempt this recipe so I can make the most of the avocados we bought on Sunday! I’ll try doubling the recipe and freezing half… My fingers are crossed… We don’t have a food processor so will be giving it a whizz in the Mixmaster with the paddle attachment (and failing that, trying the trusty electric beaters!!)
