Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse


Have you tried Chocolate Avocado Mousse? The avocado is the secret ingredient to make a rich and decadent dairy free egg free chocolate mousse.

This simple dessert is just lightly sweetened with only 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. We prefer it not overly sweet and just add enough sweetener to offset the bitterness from the cocoa powder. If you prefer sweeter treats feel free to add more maple syrup. We suggest adding 1 extra teaspoon at a time to not overdo it.

The avocado and splash of flax milk give this easy vegan pudding a nice and thick mousse-like consistency. Both avocados and flax are great sources of healthy fats!

We tested this recipe with the Vanilla Flax Milk but we would guess any flavor would work well.
Top with coconut whipped cream, sprinkle with powdered sugar, or serve with strawberries.
