Avocado Chocolate Mousse is a healthy, dense, silky and utterly delicious mousse recipe.
This avocado chocolate mousse can be put together in a couple of minutes with minimal ingredients.
Filled with all goodness, this avocado chocolate mousse is refined sugar-free, eggless, heavy cream-free, yet so rich and so delectable.
Why do you have to give up on desserts when you are following a healthy diet or eating habits?
Well, if you can play around with what goes in and in what quantity, you can definitely make your own healthier desserts.
This avocado chocolate mousse is one such healthier version of your good old friend, the chocolate mousse.
This recipe has no eggs, heavy cream, or refined sugar, unlike the authentic chocolate mousse.
Doesn’t that sound great?? Avocado is what does the magic here, by giving this mousse a rich, smooth, silky and dense texture.
This mousse is so customizable.
You can make it choco-dense by adding extra cocoa powder.
Maple syrup can be replaced by raw good quality honey or also pure organic jaggery powder.
But make sure you do not over use any sweetener, for they all contain sugar, if not in the refined form (only if you are concerned about this).
And of course you can make this completely vegan by using dairy-free milk and greek yogurt.
Finally, when it comes to toppings, it is completely your choice.
Apart from chocolate sprinkles or sugar strands you can use chocolate chips, cacao nibs, nuts, strawberries, shredded coconut etc. You can simply use nuts and fruits for a much healthier indulgence or skip the toppings completely. It tastes equally great.
So if you are wondering about the taste, I can say, this pretty much tastes the same as a typical chocolate mousse.
Although it has avocados, one cannot possibly guess it, maybe just a little hint.
The addition of greek yogurt also helps in getting a creamy texture.
This mousse does not have an airy texture like how a typical mousse would do but quite dense yet silky and velvety.
I am very much happy with the outcome for a healthy treat.
Do not add milk while blending as it makes it thin. Only if it is getting hard to blend you can add 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk or even just water.
It will be quite thick in consistency. However, to get a much thick consistency, you can refrigerate it for at least 2 hours and serve.
Do not skip the greek yogurt.
