Think you can’t make a healthy, dairy-free mousse that’s also delicious? Think again…

Chocolate is a staple dessert for Valentine’s Day and this week, we’d like to share a decadent recipe for chocolate mousse with you! Think you can’t make a healthy, dairy-free mousse that’s also delicious? Think again. Enjoy this recipe from our friends at The Nosher below.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 small, very ripe avocados (no brown spots, though!)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp coconut cream (from the can)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp fine fine sea salt
  • A handful of raspberries, for serving

Directions:

In a small microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips. Microwave at 50 percent power in 30-second increments, until melted entirely. Stir between each increment.

In the bowl of a food processor, add all ingredients except the raspberries (including the melted chocolate). Start with 2 Tbsp of coconut cream, and you can add more after blending if you need it.

Purée for at least 1 minute—you do not want avocado chunks in this mousse!

Taste the mousse—add more maple syrup if you need it. Add more coconut cream if it seems a bit too thick.

To serve, drop three or four raspberries into the bottom of each serving cup.

Top with ¼ of the mousse in each cup.

Add another layer of raspberries before dividing the last of the mousse between both cups.

Cover and chill the mousse for a few hours.

Sprinkle a few more raspberries on top before serving.

EASY TIP: You can serve the mousse right out of the food processor, but it does firm up nicely (and taste slightly better) chilled.

Enjoy!
