Creamy (Vegan) Chocolate-Avocado Mousse

Creamy (Vegan) Chocolate-Avocado Mousse

This indulgent mousse is packed with healthy fats and antioxidants and contains absolutely no dairy products. The luxurious, smooth texture is exactly that of a creamy, cooked chocolate pudding.

  1. Place the almond milk, Sola® sweetener, and sifted cocoa powder into a large saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
  2. When the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat to a steady simmer and continue to cook for two minutes until it is smooth and syrupy. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  3. Scoop the avocado flesh into a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture and continue to blend until smooth and glossy.
  4. Spoon the mousse into four serving glasses, and place them in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour. Garnish with fresh raspberries and enjoy.
