Vegan Chocolate Mousse

March 8, 2012

So rich, so creamy and so not like any other vegan dessert you’ve ever tasted. Will impress even the fussiest chocolate mousse traditionalist.

2 large ripe avocados

3/4 cup organic unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup agave nectar

1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup coconut cream

1/2tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Fresh strawberries, roasted hazelnuts and coconut flakes to garnish


Cut avocados in half and remove flesh, placing it in a food processor (you can also mash by hand if you don’t have a processor). Mix until smooth. Add cocoa powder, agave, vanilla, spices and coconut cream and blend until combined and smooth. Put into serving individual serving glasses (or one serving dish) and refrigerate – preferably overnight, but a couple of hours will do. Serve with berries, nuts and coconut flakes.
