Avocado Chocolate Pudding Mousse

A simple and delicious mousse, rich from chocolate and creamy from an avocado.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado ripe
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa I used a blend of natural and dutch processed.
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 tablespoons high quality semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate melted
  • 2/3 cup milk whole or 2%
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 pinches salt kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy or whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocado in half, take out the seed, and scoop all of the flesh into a medium-small bowl. Mash it up with a fork. Add the cocoa, light brown sugar, milk, vanilla, salt and melted semi-sweet chocolate. Mix those ingredients into a reasonably smooth, thick pudding. I used an immersion blender; a hand held mixer or an old fashioned egg beater will work too.
  2. Whip the heavy or whipping cream in a separate bowl. Once stiff peaks form, gently fold it into the pudding, using a rubber spatula. Divide into cups or ramekins and serve immediately or chill.

Recipe Notes

The heavy or whipping cream will whip faster and better if you use cold beaters (I put mine - without the mixer part - in the freezer for about 10 minutes) and place the bowl in a pan of ice water.
This mousse goes well with berries, especially strawberries and/or raspberries.
