Avocados are one of the quintessential Keto foods and are loaded with health benefits (click here for my post on avocados). This recipe combines these wonderful benefits, with a sweet treat that is sure to satisfy!
This chocolate avocado mousse is so silky, creamy and chocolatey, you will not believe there are 2 whole avocados in it! And honestly, you cannot even taste them!
Something I want to mention is the more ripe the avocado, the more you are likely to taste it in this recipe. I used avocados that had just become ripe, which really allows the cocoa powder flavor to be front and center!
How to Make Chocolate Avocado Mousse
2 avocados (just ripe)
1/2 cup coconut cream (see note below)
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon swerve confectioners (see note below)
1/8 teaspoon coffee extract
Pinch of salt
Cut open your avocado, remove the pits and spoon out into the bowl of a food processor.
Pulse for a minute or so, just to break them up a bit.
Then add in the heavy cream, coconut cream, vanilla and coffee extracts. Pulse for 2 minutes, or until well combined.
Add in the unsweetened cocoa powder, salt and swerve confectioners and continue blending. Be sure to scrape down the sides, so that all of the avocado is well incorporated.
Once the mousse is silky smooth, it is ready to serve!
Sprinkle with Lily’s dark chocolate shavings or whipped cream. Or if you want to get fancy, add to a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe into a bowl.
Note: The coconut cream is the thick solid cream that you get when you refrigerate a can of full fat unsweetened coconut milk over night. The cream rises to the top and solidifies, this is what you want, discard the water.
The amount of sweetness in this recipe, is perfect for me. Most who haven’t had sugar in a while, cannot tolerate super sweet desserts anymore. I am one of those people!
If you want your mousse a little sweeter, add another tablespoon of swerve confectioners. I would make the recipe as is and taste it to see how you like it first.
Also be sure to try this Sugar-Free Chocolate Pudding, that’s Keto friendly and has a wonderful Mexican flair to it!
