Chocolate Mousse ~ Rich and Skinny!

Attention Chocolate Lovers!   Here’s a recipe to try for a rich, smooth, creamy chocolate mousse…..

I’ve gotta confess right from the start…….I tried to slip this in on my boys but it didn’t quite work as planned because I didn’t get the avocados blended as well as I had hoped.  (I was in a hurry trying to hide the evidence!)  If they had any clue that I turned avocados into chocolate mousse, they would have never tried it.  I loved it!  My boys not so much, but they’re not chocolate lovers.


  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, preferably dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1- 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup (optional)

This really can’t get any simpler….

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds.  Be careful not to let it burn.

In a blender or food processor, add all of the ingredients,  blend until smooth and thoroughly mixed.


Refrigerate 5 minutes to 2 hours before serving.  Depending on how firm you want the mousse.  This yields 4 servings.  To reduce the calories leave out the maple syrup and use a lower calorie almond milk than pictured.
