Vegan Mint Chocolate Mousse

There’s nothing I love more than a healthy dessert and this one is at the top of my list. It’s not too sweet, but it’s extremely rich and satisfying. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory healthy fats and antioxidants from both the avocados and the cacao. So this is a dessert you can feel good about eating and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3/4 cup (90 g) cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) almond milk
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 drops peppermint oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp crushed peppermint stick or chocolate shavings, optional


  1. Place the avocado in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  2. While the avocado is blending, add the cacao powder to the almond milk and whisk together (using a whisk or a fork) until the mixture starts to thicken and is smooth.
  3. Once the avocado is smoothly blended, add the chocolate mixture to the blender or food processor and also add the salt, maple syrup and peppermint oil.
  4. Blend or food process for another 20-30 seconds or until smooth.
  5. Dish out mousse and add crushed peppermint stick or chocolate shavings if desired then enjoy!
