  • 2 large avocados ripe, peeled, and pitted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 dates pitted and soaked in water for 15 minutes (sub for 1/4 cup honey, maple syrup, or agave)
  • 1/2 cup Toasted Coconut Almondmilk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes and chopped hazelnuts for garnish


In a food processor, add avocados, cocoa powder, dates (drained) or sweetener of your choice, Toasted Coconut Almondmilk and salt. Pulse until well combined and smooth. You may have to scrape the sides of the food processor with a spatula and pulse again.

Transfer mousse to jars and garnish with coconut flakes and chopped hazelnuts. Enjoy! (The avocado chocolate mousse lasts about 1 week in the fridge in an airtight container.)
