Avo and Chocolate Mousse

by Sophie Middleton

July 6, 2016

I do love a rich chocolate mousse from time to time. You can keep its smoothness and richness by using a blended ripe avocado instead of whipped egg whites with lots of sugar. With these mousses, I chose to use 80% cocoa Dark Chocolate which may pack a bit of a bitter bite for some!

If you prefer something less dark and rich, depending on your palate, then you can always choose to use more Milk Chocolate than Dark Chocolate. Agave or maple syrup is a great alternative to refined sugars if you still need more sweetness. These avocado and chocolate mousses are perfect for dinner parties, special occasions and easy to make with children too!
