When my friend Bruce made this unusual Avocado Chocolate Mousse dessert for me, I admit I was skeptical. Avocado and chocolate? Really? My worries turned out to be baseless. Together these ingredients make...


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder (see Ann’s Tips)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup washed raspberries (optional)

  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.  Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh and put into a small blender or food processor. Add the agave or honey, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and milk. Blend until very smooth. Taste and adjust for desired sweetness.

Chef Tips

When choosing avocados for this dessert, go for the smaller, Hass variety. The large, green, smooth skinned Florida avocados don’t have a creamy enough texture.

If you prefer you can substitute the honey in this recipe for agave and use a plant milk to make this recipe vegan friendly.

For an even more intense chocolate experience, add an extra 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Adjust the amount of sweetener you use to taste.

Eat all sweet, sugary treats in moderation. A little bit of what you like does you good, but don’t overdo it!
