Chocolate Avocado Mousse

If there is one thing to be said about me, it is  is that I have a sweet tooth unlike any other! One of my favorite (and somewhat indulgent) desserts to make is my Chocolate Avocado Mousse with my sweet Coconut Cream!

The Chocolate Avocado Mousse (only 3 basic ingredients!)

  • 1 Large Avocado
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Trader Joe’s version is VEGAN! make sure you don’t get the chunks because those contain milk.)chocolate-chips
  1. Mash the avocado until smooth. (you can use a food processor but the one I have is super dated. Think “Parent’s wedding 30 years ago!)
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in a heat safe bowl.
  3. Blend together in the food processor, or by hand.

The Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 1 can of Thick & Creamy coconut cream from Trader Joe’s
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  1. Chill coconut cream in the fridge overnight.
  2. Scoop the top layer of cream that has now risen to the top into a bowl. (You won’t be needing the remaining coconut water left on the bottom.)
  3. With a mixer, blend with vanilla and powdered sugar.

Enjoy!
