Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse



8 portion(s)

  • 2 Ripe avocados, large, (or 2 cups of flesh from smaller avos)
  • 180 g Pure Maple Syrup
  • 30 g Coconut sugar or rapadura sugar, (or 2-4 tbsp to taste)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp tamari sauce, (can use soy sauce if not GF)
  • 2 tbsp Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
  • 75 g raw cacao powder

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place avocado flesh in the TM bowl.  Puree for 20secs on Sp 5.  Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.

    (This step is optional, but I find it gives a much smoother end result)

  2. Add remaining ingredients except cacao powder & blend for 1 min, 37C, Sp 6.  The slight heat helps to melt & emulsify the coconut oil.

  3. Add cacao powder & blend for 30 secs on speed 6.  Scrape down sides of bowl with spatula & taste mixture.  Adjust balance of flavours if required then mix for another 30 secs on speed 6 or until the mousse is totally smooth & glossy (using spatula to assist if required).

  4. Can be served straight away (fantastic with fresh strawberries) or refrigerated for a firmer dessert.  

    Here, it is served with strawberry coulis (from the EDC) & vanilla bean icecream.



Accessories you need



My daughter used non-stick egg rings as a mould for the dessert in the main picture.  This recipe can also be used as a vegan ganache when cold.

Raw cacao is the best food source of magnesium & this is such a yummy way to eat it!  Most people would never guess the ingredients in this rich dessert - don't tell them it's (relatively) healthy tmrc_emoticons.;-)

    Really enjoyed this new version, made many times but without balsamic and soy sauce. But this helped round out the flavours. However, at step 3 needed less speed so used a speed 3. Tasted fab, would fool any dinner guest tmrc_emoticons.)
