Recipe: Easy Avocado Chocolate Mouse From Deliciously Ella, The Goddess Of Avo-Goodness

Calling all avocado fiends – stuck for a dessert option?

Deliciously Ella avocado mousse

It’s all sweetness and light according to Deliciously Ella, aka Ella Woodward. “There’s no cooking or chopping involved – these desserts go from fridge to plate in less than five minutes! And I promise you won’t know that there are veggies in your pudding!” #phew


Get the Ella edge

“Avocados have a thick, decadent, creamy feel, but their distinctive taste totally disappears under the rich chocolate flavours of the cacao, the nutty almond butter, the sweet banana and the caramel-like dates.”

Easy avocado chocolate mousse

Serves 4

2 ripe avocados
4 really ripe bananas, peeled (400g)
12 Medjool dates, pitted
4 tablespoons almond butter
5 heaped teaspoons raw cacao powder
(Optional) drizzle of maple syrup
(Optional) sprinkle of chia seeds

Slice the avocados in half, peel their skin away and remove their stones.

Then place the flesh into a food processor.

Add all the remaining ingredients to the food processor with a splash of water and the maple syrup (if using), then blend into a smooth, delicious mixture. Divide the mixture among four ramekins or little glasses and sprinkle over the chia seeds, if using.

Keep chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.
