I had every intention of doing a savoury post, I really did. I had it all planned out – roast cauliflower something with a side of something. But alas, the chocolate has me now and if I’m going down, you’re all coming with me. Avocado Mocha Mousse, come to Mama.

I love this mousse. A; it is simple and super quick to make and in a frantic kitchen raid, who doesn’t love quick? And B; it’s pretty healthy on the decadent chocolate dessert scale. So, guilt somewhat assuaged, I give you my Avocado Mocha Mousse.

How to whip up a chocolate dessert in under 5 minutes

Making your next quick dessert is as simple as 1-2-3. 

  1. Combine your favourite granola with seeds, nuts and coconut in a small bowl
  2. Add the mousse ingredients to a processor and blend until smooth and silky
  3. Layer the mousse in a glass or jar with the granola mix and serve with fresh berries. 

So simple!

This mousse is rich so I like to layer it with crunchy granola and nuts to break up the rich. It also adds a fabulous crunch. Finish with blueberries and this dessert is the total yum package. Blueberries love coffee like Joanie loved Chachi and this mousse has a subtle coffee note underneath all that wonderful chocolate.

A little of this mousse goes a long way, it is deliciously rich. Fill to the brim at your peril. I myself laugh in the face of peril and fill well to the top. Sprinkle with fresh or dried blueberries or both. Sigh. x

Delicious all round! We love avocado mousse, but we’ve never thought about flavouring it with coffee or adding granola to it; these are both great ideas! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
