This mocha avocado mousse secretly has avocado disguised within swirls of deep, dark chocolate flavor. Not only is it delicious, but it’s healthy and nutritious. Win-win.
This Mocha Avocado Mousse is one of those sneaky treats! No one will ever know that it’s made with avocado!

I’m not usually a nature hater, but I’m still at war with a squirrel in my avocado tree. You may recall my anger at said creature over a year ago when I posted my Avocado and Tomato Salad.
Well, all this time later, that squirrel still gets to more of my avocados than I do! I pick so many of them off the ground that I just had to do something different with the avocados as they were ripening all at once.
Serendipity struck when I saw Manu’s Menu’s post for Chocolate Avocado Mousse! It looked so dark, thick and rich, and so incredibly easy to make. I made a few changes as I wanted a more boozy dessert, and though coffee might be a nice addition. Just click here if you want to make Manu’s original chocolate recipe in which she uses honey and maple syrup, instead of confectioner’s sugar, which is an even healthier version.
By the way, no one in my family realized that there was avocado in the Mocha Avocado Mousse until I told them (but not until after they’d all scoffed them)!
Mocha (Avocado) Mousse
adapted from Manu’s Menu Chocolate Avocado Mousse
- 1/2 cup (4 oz) dark chocolate (good quality like Barry or Lindt)
- 2 medium avocados, peeled and cored
- 1/4 cup (1 oz) unsweetened cocoa
- 3 tbsp Kahlua or other coffee flavored liqueur
- 1/4 tsp espresso powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar (more or less to taste)
Melt the chocolate and set aside.
Place the remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Add the melted chocolate and blend until evenly mixed.
Ta dah! See how easy that was? It’s ready!
You can taste it to see if you like more sugar or more coffee flavor and adjust to your liking.
