This is one of the easiest desserts you'll ever make. It literally takes 10 minutes and is perfect for a family treat or if you have guests for dinner. I have friends that request this when they come over!

It's rich and chocolatey and yet there are no nasties in it! I promise you can't taste the avocado. In fact it's the avocado that gives this mousse its wonderful texture.

This recipe serves 4 but I have successfully halved the ingredients to serve 2.


2 medium small to medium avocados

1/2 cup maple syrup

3/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

Large pinch of salt

1 small punnet of raspberries (fresh or defrosted)

Unsweetened dessicated coconut to sprinkle of the top


  1. Blend the first 5 ingredients thoroughly in a mixer.

  2. Spoon into glasses, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Just before serving, add the raspberries on top and sprinkle generously with dessicated coconut.


If you can only find large avocados, add slightly more of each mousse ingredient otherwise you might get a slight taste of avocado.

Don't be worried if it doesn't seem like there's much mousse in each glass. The chocolate mixture is rich and once you add the raspberries and coconut it's more than enough.

The mousse tastes much better once chilled so do leave enough time for this.

You don't have to add the topping but it tastes much nicer if you do! Raspberries and coconut are my favourite combination but you can choose your own.
