Lush chocolate avocado mousse with a healthy twist — easy to make and so good for you!

The Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse

You know that feeling when something tastes so good you literally start laughing?

That’s what eating this rich, insanely good chocolate avocado pudding does to you.

Avocados are one of nature’s perfect foods, loaded with fiber and healthy monounsaturated fats, potassium and folate.

They’re a superfood ingredient whose star continues to rise.

But what happens when you’re tired of neatly arranged rows of avocado slices on pieces of toast?

Since you’re reading this, I can guess you know the answer!

The Ultimate (Vegan) Chocolate Avocado Pudding

The combination of avocados with pure, organic cocoa (another nutritious antioxidant superfood) and a natural sweetener like maple syrup makes this creamy chocolate avocado mousse a supremely healthy dessert or snack.

The other thing worth knowing about this recipe is how simple it is to whip up.

It comes together in seconds in a food processor, and the results will simply blow you away.

I’ve been making this healthy mousse on a regular basis for years.

When they were very little (and afraid of green vegetables) I used to enjoy watching my kids devour it, which I admit brought out a certain motherly deviousness.

It might seem strange to see balsamic vinegar in the ingredient list for this dessert, but it actually adds to the sensory experience.

When you eat a spoonful of this mousse you get all the essential flavors that satisfy your desire for deliciousness: sweet, salty, sour and bitter.

How to serve Chocolate Avocado Pudding:

  • Sprinkle some cacao nibs over the pudding for extra crunch (and superfood goodness).
  • Scoop the pudding into small bowls and top with assorted fresh berries – blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.
  • Freeze the pudding mixture in an ice cream maker for amazing sorbet.
  • Spread some on whole grain toast or rice cakes.

Easy Healthy Chocolate Avocado Mousse [Paleo, Vegan]

Hey, I’m Karen

Creator of Familystyle Food

I’m a food obsessed super-taster and professionally trained cook ALL about making cooking fun and doable, with easy to follow tested recipes and incredibly tasty food!


  1. I just tried this recipe in my vitamix but made the slight mistake of reducing it to a single size serving (doesn’t blend well with such little ingredients). I added 2 icecubes and 1 tsp virgin cold pressed coconut oil to make it a bit smoother and a little icy. It was SOOOO good but I think I’ll reduce the coco powder to 1.5 tbs (rather than 2 tbs) as it is very chocolatey. Thanks so much for the recipe.
    recipe for 1 person:
    1/4 ripe Hass avocado, peeled and pitted
    1 tbs agave nectar or maple syrup or honey
    1 tsp organic evaporated cane juice or brown sugar
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/8 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar
    1/8 teaspoon shoyu or soy sauce
    1 tbs and 1 tsp high-quality cocoa powder

  2. I made it! We are having it for dessert tonight. The bits I licked off the spoon were delicious, and I found the cocoa powder at New Seasons (right down the street!). Wish you were here to eat it with us.

  3. Chocolate mousse is a MUST-HAVE diet food for me. I have a great recipe I got from “French Women Don’t Get Fat.” Never *ever* would’ve thought to use Avocado though. Genius!

  4. This is so interesting that this all ‘works!’ I’m totally tempted to try it out on both my son and my husband!

  5. Liza, grab that avocado and whip up some of this moussey pudding. You’ll love it.

    Hi Marianne! Thanks for being patient with my lack of posting. I’m going to have to be better about that, plus I miss it while I’m gone.
    I think you’ll have a fabulous treat if you use the Dagoba cocoa – I really like their products. And yes, please do share the recipe and original source too. Cheers.

  6. ps..would you mind if I submitted your recipe(all credited to your blog of course) to Dagoba chocolate?????? Thanks,Marianne

  7. OH,I had just found your blog in August and was looking forward to more posts,so I am glad you are back!! This looks great..and I have some organic cocoa powder made by Dagoba (Ashland ,Oregon) which makes me happy to use(I live in Oregon)…I think I will try it with their has chilies and cinnamon in it for a nice zing!!!
