Rich Chocolate Mousse

By: Susan Joy

Delightfully rich and chocolatey and has my three favourite foods all in this one recipe, avocado, chocolate and dates. A quick and easy dessert for busy people.

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 00:10 | Cooking Time: 00:00


  • 4 Medjool date(s), pitted
  • 1 ripe avocado(s)
  • 1 Tbsp honey (unprocessed), or coconut nectar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (organic)
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup cacao raw powder, or to your taste
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch pink Himalayan salt, fine
  • 1 cup coconut cream, canned full fat


Add dates and avocado flesh to a high-speed blender. Blend on a low speed for 20 seconds, using the tamper to push the ingredients onto the blades. Stop and scrape down sides of the jug several times.

Add coconut cream, honey, vanilla, cacao powder, cinnamon and salt. Blend on low to incorporate, then increase speed to high and whip mixture for 35 – 40 seconds to produce a smooth and silky, aerated mousse. Taste and adjust flavours if needed.

Spoon mousse into 4 small dessert glasses or ramekins, smooth the top surface with the back of a teaspoon. (Makes approximately 2 cups)

To serve garnish with strawberries. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
