Chocolate Mousse

image1 Desserts can be a bit tricky. I find it quite challenging to make a dessert that most people will like. It shouldn’t be too sweet but still have intensive flavour.

This chocolate mousse has become my number one choice of dessert. It’s thrown together super quickly, only needs a handful of ingredients – and everyone loves it!

When all bowls are scraped empty I let my friends guess what the mousse is made of. They will usually guess the bananas, the cacao powder, and maybe the dates, but never the secret ingredient – avocado! In combination with banana the avocado gives the mousse a super smooth consistency, adds healthy fats, and balances out the sweetness of the dish. If you have never tried using avocado in a dessert, I certainly encourage you to do it!



Chocolate Mousse Recipe

  • Prep Time:
  • Servings: 4-6


2 avocados
4 bananas
6 tbsp raw cacao powder
8 dates (about 60g)
6 tbsp nut butter (e.g. almond or hazelnut butter)
4 tbsp plant milk
1 pinch of sea salt
fresh or thawed berries (topping)


1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender (both of which should be relatively high-speed), until the mousse is of a smooth consistency.
2. Pour the mousse into small glasses or bowls and serve with fresh or thawed berries.
