Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Cacao plus Avocado equals amazing

Who would have thought these two ingredients together could be so delicious and flexible... You can enjoy this as a mousse, as an icecream, as an icing on cupcakes, as a slice, or just with a spoon!

Chocolate Avocado Mousse


2 avocadoes
70g coconut oil
60g raw cacao
2-3 heaped T honey (to taste)
1/2 vanilla bean (seeds only)


Put all ingredients in Thermomix and combine 20sec speed 5
Taste and add more honey if you like it sweeter

As a mousse:

Put in a container and store in the fridge - eat with a spoon or use as a spread

As an icing:

Use straight away, put cupcakes in fridge to set, then remove cakes half an hour before serving


As an icecream:

Freeze... it will set hard. If you use it within a couple of hours of making, it will still scoop. For longer storage times, remove from the freezer an hour before use.

As a slice:

Prepare a base, spread topping... freeze until set (one hour approx), then slice into portions and freeze each portion ready for use

Nut Base:

150g ground nuts (pecans or walnuts combine well with this dish)
100g dates
Combine and spread on the base of a small lined dish, top with mousse

Cookie Base:

Use Coconut cookie recipe
120g cookies
40g ghee
Chrush cookies and combine with ghee
Spread on the base of a small lined dish, top with mousse
