Avocados and chocolate like never before.

Sometimes you need a decadent recipe that you can make in less than twenty minutes. This one is it.

As we all know, there is no better combination than dark chocolate and sea salt. Made with avocados, the mousse is also vegan, but serve it to your non vegan friends and they’ll be so sold on the creamy chocolatey goodness that they’ll never notice the difference. You’ll get points for a posh dessert and no one will ever know that you made it in the frazzled half an hour that you had between your last work meeting and your dinner party.

Feeling extra fancy? Drizzle with a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

vegan chocolate mousse recipe

Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Sea Salt


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 113g bar of 100% cacao, unsweetened baker’s chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 cup non dairy milk (I use hemp milk. If you want a thinner mousse, add a little more.)


Spoon avocado into a food processor and add in vanilla, salt sugar and cocoa powder. Mix until smooth.

In a double boiler melt baking chocolate and add to mixture. When smooth, spoon into serving dishes and chill until time to serve. You can also eat the mousse right away if you don’t mind it a little warm.

Garnish by sprinkling with a little bit of sea salt.

    I never thought of pairing chocolate and avocados, but this sounds like it would have a really intriguing flavor.

    This recipe is absolutely fantastic. Will definitely be making this for all my future dinner parties(believe my guests will be throuroughly impress), and just for me as well. Just finished making it and when it is throughly chilled, gonna be garnishing w fresh berries. Yum! So easy to make too! Chocolate mousse has always been one of my favourite all-time desserts, so naturally I was overjoyed to see a vegan version. Two paws up!!!
