Silky Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Silky Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse

This simple mousse takes only a few ingredients to prepare, but tastes like a top-level elegant dessert.

Serves: 4

Avocados add rich, silky texture to this velvety chocolate mousse recipe from the Plants First cookbook. A touch of salt and a flourish of cloud-like coconut whipped cream are just the icing on top. 

What you need:

1 (3-ounce) dark chocolate bar
2 ripe Hass avocados, peeled and pitted
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup coconut whipped cream, for garnish
¾ cup fresh berries of choice, for garnish

What you do:

  1. Break chocolate bar into small pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 20- to 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is melted. 
  2. Into a food processor, add melted chocolate, avocados, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt and pulse until smooth.
  3. Divide mousse among bowls and top with coconut whipped cream and berries.
