Chocolate of the Gods Mousse Recipe

For all of you who wanted the it is. I got this one from House Beautiful magazine several months ago but Whole Foods has a similar version.

2 C Hass avocados (about 2)
1/2 C plus 2 T pure maple syrup
2-4 T Organic/raw sugar
2 T Coconut oil (optional)
1-2 t Vanilla extract
1 t Sweet balsamic vinegar (Costco brand ok...aged is best)
1 C Pure cocoa powder...I use the extra dark
1 pt Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
Handful of fresh mint...chopped

Top with whipped cream if desired...

In a food processor, blend the avocados, maple syrup, sugar, coconut oil, vanilla and balsamic until smooth and creamy.

Add the cocoa powder and blend until smooth. Use a simple metal strainer if you have any lumps.

Distribute half the raspberries evenly among four to eight dessert bowls. Follow with a dollop of mousse, sprinkle of mint, more raspberries and top with whipped cream if desired.

Leftover mousse can be stored in a tightly sealed container for up to a week in the frig or frozen for up to a month.

Here's to your health!:-)

  1. Yum! I can't wait to try this. I'll bet it's equally as delicious as our chocolate avocado pudding recipe. We've even got some ripe avocados in the pantry!
