Chocolate Avocado Mousse? More like Chocolate Avocado Fudge Frosting (and only 3 Ingredients)!

I’ve seen the recipe for chocolate avocado mousse floating around for the last few months.  I even considered making it when I was doing my “30 Days, No Processed Sugar” challenge, but the thought of mixing avo + chocolate put me off.

Then, I met a friend who made it and I thought, “If she can make it… and eat it… then it’s worth giving it a try.”

So I did.

Dense.  Chocolatey.  Thick.  Fudgey.  Rich.

It’s chocolate to the extreme, and you can’t taste even a hint of avo in there.  This is a dessert for dark chocolate lovers, oh baby.

The best part?  It’s got 3 ingredients, which means that it’s incredibly simple to make.

  • 1 avocado
  • 3 1/2 T of unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 1/2 T of honey

Combine avocado, cocoa, and honey (in that order – the honey will come right off the spoon if you use it to measure the cocoa first) and blend till smooth.  You can use either a food processor, a blender, or probably even an electric mixer.  I used our small hand blender and it did the trick, no problem.

Warning: if you’re using a bowl, make sure that it’s small enough to cover partially with your hand, because the cocoa powder will POOF out with the initial mix.  Trust me.  I know.  So does my kitchen floor.  And kitchen wall.  And teapot.

This is a v-e-r-y thick mousse.  From the start, I thought, “This is almost like a fudge frosting”.  Putting it in the fridge for a bit only made it more fudge-frosting-like.  Chris chowed it down, but I couldn’t eat more than a few bites, it was so rich.  And after those few bites, I felt like glugging down a giant glass of milk.

So, yes – it’s delicious, though a bit too thick to be a true mousse, in my humble opinion.  I think that the next time that I make it (and I will make it again) I’ll use it as an icing for brownies.  It needs a sturdy dessert.  My advice is to put it on the brownies shortly after mixing, because once it’s set up in the fridge, it’s quite difficult to spread.

Amazing.  Chocolate + avocado.  Who’d have thought it possible?

  1. Gave it a go – surprisingly yum. Might try a bit of castor sugar in place of the honey next time as , oddly enough, it was the honey flavor that I thought overwhelmed the chocolate rather than the avocado. Either way – yum,.

  2. Hmm never thought of mixing chocolate + avocado but worth a try! Considering I indulged in a pms-worthy helping of dark chocolate squares last night haha!

  3. That looks yummy! And a no-sugar challenge sounds like just what I need– I think all I ate today was candy.

  4. This reminded me of black bean brownies… who would have thought to use black beans in brownies?! But I was amazed that they taste very fudgy & chocolatey! I’ll have to try this recipe now, too!
