Egg-free Avocado Chocolate Mousse

A rich chocolate mousse is a firm favourite in our house. Once upon a time when we could have people over for dinner, we had a friend with an egg allergy over and I went about searching for egg and dairy free dessert options. I discovered this wonderful egg-free alternative to my old classic dessert and it was an absolute winner. The bonus is that the kids gobbled it all up too. 
  • 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), broken into pieces
  • 400g ripe avocado flesh
  • 125ml coconut cream
  • 70ml  honey
  • 35g raw cacao powder
  • Strawberries or blueberries or raspberries, to serve
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios (providing there are no nut allergies)
  • Fresh mint leaves, to serve


  1. Melt the chocolate carefully and slowly in your microwave. 
  2. Place the avocado, coconut cream, honey and cacao powder in a blender to mix. The aim is to have your mixture as smooth and fluffy as possible. 
  3. Once your avocado mix is smooth, you can now add the melted chocolate and continue to blend until light and fluffy with a mousse like texture. If it is not sweet enough at this stage, you can add in a bit more honey.
  4. As an alternative, you can use milk chocolate for a more kid friendly taste. 
  5. Spoon your mixture into small serving dishes and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. 
  6. Top with your choice of berries, nuts, shaved cholate and cream to serve to your guests.
