Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Ingredients

8 portion(s)

Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse

  • 2 Ripe avocados, large, (or 2 cups of flesh from smaller avos)
  • 180 g Pure Maple Syrup
  • 30 g Coconut sugar or rapadura sugar, (or 2-4 tbsp to taste)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp tamari sauce, (can use soy sauce if not GF)
  • 2 tbsp Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
  • 75 g raw cacao powder
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place avocado flesh in the TM bowl.  Puree for 20secs on Sp 5.  Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.

    (This step is optional, but I find it gives a much smoother end result)

  2. Add remaining ingredients except cacao powder & blend for 1 min, 37C, Sp 6.  The slight heat helps to melt & emulsify the coconut oil.

  3. Add cacao powder & blend for 30 secs on speed 6.  Scrape down sides of bowl with spatula & taste mixture.  Adjust balance of flavours if required then mix for another 30 secs on speed 6 or until the mousse is totally smooth & glossy (using spatula to assist if required).

  4. Can be served straight away (fantastic with fresh strawberries) or refrigerated for a firmer dessert.  

    Here, it is served with strawberry coulis (from the EDC) & vanilla bean icecream.

Tip

My daughter used non-stick egg rings as a mould for the dessert in the main picture.  This recipe can also be used as a vegan ganache when cold.

Based on this recipe:  //www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXRP8yE6GQw

Raw cacao is the best food source of magnesium & this is such a yummy way to eat it!  Most people would never guess the ingredients in this rich dessert - don't tell them it's (relatively) healthy tmrc_emoticons.;-)

    Delicious and the perfect way to use up over ripe avocados. I read the comments and halved the cacao and did a mixture of rice malt and maple syrup (also halved). I only had vanilla extract so halved that too. I'm a dark chocolate fan and this is perfect and easily sweetened with strawberries and cream for a dessert - no one would know it's not avo!

    Really amazing recipe. Made it on different occasions (only used 2/3 of maple syrup and 2/3 of sugar) and everyone totally thought it was real chocolate mousse and just could not believe it when I revealed that it was made with avocados! Love this

    Very nice. I used the coconut aminos because I had some in the fridge. As others have said next time I'd reduce the cacao. Even my kids liked it with some crushed raspberries. 😋

    Submitted by EmmaB123 on 11. February 2016 - 23:41.

    Loved the consistency, prob a bit too much cacao for me (I had to add a bit of cream to dull it down) but my husband added vanilla protein powder to his and loved it. We both added strawberries as well. Prefer this to high sugar and cream content of other mousses- will definitely make again!

    Heavenly!!! I reduced the maple syrup and cacao by one-third. Served it with some slivered almonds. My husband wasn't as convinced about it, so maybe I'll increase the maple syrup next time. Looking forward to trying it with coulis and ice cream next time. Thanks for the amazing recipe!!!

    Amazing recipe!  I didnt have maple syrup so I used agave and replaced tamari with a little bit of soy.  I quartered the recipe as I was scared it wouldnt turn out and didnt want our scarce supply of avos to be wasted!  I need to go buy more avo's so everyone can try it!

    OMG I have died and gone to heaven. I was half expecting that this would just be something my kids would love & would just be "average" for me as I tend to love all the "bad" stuff when it comes to desserts. But this is devine! My kids & hubby are going to love me tonight when I whip this out! Thank you!  Love

    Wow! I loved this. Super easy, dairy and gluten free. I'll be making it again! I added a little pomegranate molasses in place of the rapadura because I didn't have any. 

    You could add a little chilli powder too if you were keen to give it a bit of extra kick.

    i have frozen half in cube trays and next time I feel like ice cream I can give it the sorbet treatment in the thermi and voila!! 

    Yum yum!

    Submitted by raspberryz on 10. March 2013 - 22:55.

    I did enjoy this mousse - especially the texture but found by adding orange zest it enhanced the flavour so much more. Will also experiment with mint next time. A very healthy alternative to the normal choc mousse and easy too! Thanks for a great recipe - will make this when I need a choc fix. I wonder how it would freeze? Will have to give it a go when I make a big batch!

  • Sorry for the delayed reply,

    Submitted by Nyree Yali on 12. December 2012 - 22:58.

    Sorry for the delayed reply, Paula.  I took a bit of a break from the world of Thermomix tmrc_emoticons.;)Rapadura sugar could be used instead.  You could even use raw sugar, but I posted this recipe with a focus on the most nutrient-dense options possible.  Both coconut sugar (& rapadura) & coconut oil are available from Health Food Stores or online.  You can also get coconut oil in the Asian food section of major supermarkets. I'm not sure that other oils would work so well.  As the coconut oil solidifies when cool, it adds to the texture of the dish.  Liquid oils would result in a much  runnier/softer mixture that would not set firm enough to shape in any way.

  • This is really yummy!! The

    Submitted by GailR on 5. September 2012 - 17:46.

    This is really yummy!! The kids had no idea it was avocado. My son was alarmed when I finished making it and he saw me putting it in a bowl that had a smidge of avocado in it, but I didn't spill the beans...

    I substituted a few items for whatever I had in the house. I used a bit of treacle and golden syrup instead of maple syrup, I used whole cacao nibs and ground them at the start, and I used Bragg All Purpose Seasoning instead of Tamari (because the bottle had fallen over and I couldn't find it!). The cacao gave it a really nice slightly crunchy texture.

    I think I will try it next time we have people over... tmrc_emoticons.D

    Submitted by Nyree Yali on 5. August 2012 - 18:18.

    Yep, agave will work fine, too.  I think the original recipe uses agave if my memory serves me correctly (which it doesn't always).  I prefer the lower fructose level of maple syrup, which I is why I use that, but any similar syrup should yield a similar result tmrc_emoticons.)  I'm glad you liked it  Big Smile
