Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries and Mint

Kitsunetsuki KitchenIt’s nice to trick surprise people into enjoying something they never thought they would, and I think avocado chocolate mousse definitely fits that description! These are very rich, so the strawberry and mint (both in season at the moment) are a great touch to lighten the dish. As mousse is served cold it’s perfect for dinner parties, as you can make it earlier in the day and forget about it until it’s time to eat. These amounts serve four people.

You’ll need:

2 ripe avocados
120g plain/dark chocolate
10g cocoa powder
2 tbs golden syrup or other sweetener
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbs almond milk
fresh mint
pinch of sea salt


1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.

2. Blend the chocolate with all the other ingredients.

3. Divide into small bowls or ramekins, chill for at least 15 minutes, then serve topped with a strawberry and a sprig of fresh mint.

    I love the promise of a party that starts with a White Russian. You know it’s going to be a good night!

    • Thanks Vanessa–though as you can see from the fact that it’s taken me nearly 50 days to reply to this message I’ve been a bit out of the loop since summer! I’ve got lots of yummy recipes planned for the winter months though, so keep an eye out 🙂
