Jewelled Avocado Chocolate Mousse


Avocado in a dessert? 

Trust us!

This super simple recipe is the perfect way to end a festive meal. Why not have it instead of Christmas pudding or even just as an indulgent weeknight dessert?

The avocado in this creates a deliciously creamy texture, no need for egg whites as you would in a traditional chocolate mousse! Your dinner guests will never know that this is a healthy version of their favourite pud.


Recipe serves 4.



  • 2 x large ripe avocadoes
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or seeds are best) 
  • 40g raw cacao powder
  • 1 pomegranate
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Add all ingredients, except the pomegranate to a blender & blitz until smooth. 
  2. Spoon into wine glasses or small ramekins and top with pomegranate seeds. 
  3. Chill in the fridge for 3 hours, then they’re ready to serve! How simple is that?!

Did you know that avocados are a rich source of mono-unsaturated fats – aka. good fats! They help us to absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E & K and help regulate cholesterol levels.
