This 10-minute easy and healthy chocolate avocado mousse is so creamy and delicious that it’s actually hard to believe avocados in this recipe. It is vegan, paleo, gluten-free, and you can also make a low-carb or keto avocado chocolate pudding version.
Avocados are loaded with mono-saturated fatty acids, which are good for a healthy heart. Besides, avocados are rich in potassium, fiber, antioxidants, and many vitamins like B, K, C, and E.
- Avocado: For the smoother avocado mousse, use ripened avocados. But some people also experience a stronger avocado flavor in this pudding by using ripened avocados.
- Cocoa Powder: I have used unsweetened cocoa powder. Always use good quality cocoa or cacao powder for the dessert.
- Melted Chocolate chips: I have used sugar-free chocolate chips, but I can also use Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Bar. If you are not on Keto, then use semi-sweetened chocolate chips. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe container and microwave till they melt. If you can't find chocolate chips, then replace them with the same quantity of regular cocoa powder.
- Milk: I have used unsweetened almond milk for a vegan version of avocado chocolate mousse. You can also use coconut milk or dairy milk.
- Sweetener: I have used Maple syrup, but you can also add honey (if non-vegan), powdered sugar, or stevia (for Keto).
- Vanilla extract: I have used pure natural vanilla extract.
