RECIPE: Rockin' Raw Chocolate Mousse

It's National Avocado Day and I can't think of a better way to celebrate that by making my Rockin' Raw Chocolate Mousse?! The secret ingredient is avocado. It's a healthified dessert that's easy to make and oh so tasty! Trust me, if you did a taste test, you wouldn't be able to tell that there's avocado in it! Hey, moms, it's a great dessert for your kids who love their chocolate mousse.

Unlike traditional mousse, which contains artery-clogging butter, cream, and eggs, avocados make the base for my recipe. Yes, it's VEGAN! 

It's only 4 ingredients, and you probably have at least two of them already at home. Let's get rockin' with my recipe! 

Here's what you'll need...

Rockin' Raw Chocolate Mousse Recipe


2 Avocados
1/4 Cup Organic Raw Cacao Powder (I like Navitas Naturals, but you can use whatever you like)
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (all-natural)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract*
*preferably organic


Big Bowl
Electric Mixer/Whisk
Measuring Cup
Measuring Spoons
Cutting Board

Time: 15 minutes

1. Peel, pit, and cut avocados, then throw 'um into the bowl or blender (depending upon whether you choose to mix or blend).
2.  Add raw cacao powder into the bowl/blender.
3. Add maple syrup into the bowl/blender.
4. Splash the vanilla extract in and mix/whisk/blend ingredients together until silky smooth.
