Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Serves 2 5 minute prep time

By Angela Simpson on December 29, 2016

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Dark, rich and decadent, this avocado chocolate mousse makes getting some veggies in your body easy. We even added mint (optional) for that chocolate mint chocolate bar feeling. The zucchini in this recipe helps to increase the size of each portion without significantly affecting the overall taste of the pudding. However, feel free to leave it out if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado, pitted and skinned
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or other non-dairy beverage
  • 1 serving Chocolate Vega® Essentials
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1 to 2 tsp maple syrup (optional, to sweeten)
  • Pinch of sea salt, to enhance sweetness
  • Fresh organic mint, to garnish

Preparation

  • Put the first five ingredients in the food processor and process until completely smooth.

  • Add all remaining ingredients and continue to puree, again until completely smooth and incorporated.

  • Adjust sweetness to taste with maple syrup if desired.

  • Serve garnished with fresh mint sprigs.
