Simple, satisfying chocolate avocado mousse recipe, ready in an instant. Single serving, wonderful espresso flavor. Doubles as vegan frosting. Gluten-free.


  • ½ medium avocado (ripe but not over-ripe)
  • 3.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp raw ground vanilla bean (or 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract)
  • ¼ tsp instant espresso powder (to taste)
  • optional: ⅛ tsp salt


  1. Process all ingredients in the small bowl of a food processor into a smooth consistency (double batch if you only have a large processor, or use an immersion blender instead since it’s a small batch recipe). Note: depending on size / ripeness of avocado the consistency can vary slightly. If it seems a bit too runny, add a touch more cocoa powder. If too solid, add a touch of plant-based milk or a bit more avocado. Enjoy as an instant chocolate mousse or use as frosting as needed.
