Easy Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse

In my head this easy vegan recipe started life as a rich decadent ‘to die for’ chocolate torte followed by ideas of a romantic praline truffle cake with a gooey self saucing centre to end up as a speedy 5-ingredient Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse. What can I say my cravings got the better of me. Good things come to those who don’t wait today!

SUGAR FREE HEALTHY CHOCOLATE AVOCADO MOUSSE

This Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse is super easy to make and can be sweetened to taste using either honey (non-vegan), maple syrup (vegan) or low-carb sweetener of choice. I’ve given suggestions for all three in the recipe below making it suitable for those of you following a keto, paleo, vegan and plant based diet or who follow the Whole30 or Gaps healing protocol.

For an AIP version of this Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse you can replace the raw cacao with carob though you will to adjust the sweetener to taste as carob is naturally sweeter than cacao. If you prefer no sweetener at all, you can use the juice from a freshly squeezed orange, to taste. That’s seriously good too.

Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt too, this really enhances the flavour of this Vegan Chocolate Avocado Mousse. Using a touch of my favourite Plenish Almond Milk makes it the perfect consistency, creamy and not to thick… just right!
