  • 1 Haas avocado, large, very ripe (1 cup mashed, 200 grams)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Dash kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Place the avocado, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in food processor bowl. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds, stopping once to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Add the cocoa powder, sifting it with a mesh strainer to prevent lumps. Process about 1 more minute, stopping once to scrape the sides and bottom with a spatula (some maple syrup might remain unblended at the bottom), until very smooth and creamy.
  • Divide the avocado mousse between four individual dessert bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Or make in advance and refrigerate until ready to eat, but remove the avocado chocolate mousse from the fridge 30 minutes before enjoying, to allow to return to room temperature. Chocolate always tastes better at room temperature.
