Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Here’s a favorite Raw Vegan Chocolate Dessert Recipe….

[print_this]

Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Combine in Vita-Mix or Food Processor
2 ripe avocados
1/2 c agave
1/4 c cocoa powder

Optional:
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Dash Vanilla Extract

Blend until smooth and serve

[/print_this]

Put in container and chill in fridge, or freeze to make it really decadent like a thick mousse-ey ice cream, or make it pretty and do it up parfait style in glasses alternating layers of chocolate mousse and strawberries or other fruit.  Or as I mentioned, you can even thin it out a smidge more with an extra dash of agave and this will become your go-to frosting.  Serious.

Enjoy!

And if anyone wants to really go crazy with chocolate, try Raw Vegan Brownies

Recipe and step-by-step instructions are here

Have you ever made a raw dessert?

    For entry #1: I would love to try these because they are "Dense with antioxidants and Omegas from Chia Seeds". I haven't tried Chia seeds yet but have been reading about them on so many blogs!

    Glad you love it and it’s one of those things that I bring to parties and *no one* ever guesses it’s raw, vegan, GF, or made with avos. You can also freeze it and it turns into a dense ice cream/pudding…super tasty!

    okay…I gotta try this! This is so convenient for me, because it doesn’t need baking! I can actually make this in my room!

    Hi! I have just found you blog and I have to say it is absolutely amazing! Also coming from my mom, which is quite used to a more traditional style of cooking (eggs,butter and all that), she always keeps asking me for ways she could replace ingredients so she could make it less caloric :D

    One question on your Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse – would it be possible to switch the agave with honey? Agave nectar is quite expensive where I live unfortunately and on a student budget there’s only so many healthy things I can afford..

    Averie @ Averie Cooks Reply:

    If it’s easier for you to use honey, go for it. Thanks for reading and for the nice compliments!
