The Ultimate Guide to Creamy Avocado Chocolate Mousse:

This guide will help you achieve the richest, smoothest, and most delicious avocado chocolate mousse possible!


  • Perfectly ripe avocado: This is the key to a creamy mousse. Choose an avocado that yields to gentle pressure and has a dark brown, almost black, stem that gives slightly when pressed.
  • High-quality chocolate: For the best flavor, use high-quality dark chocolate (ideally 70% cacao or higher). You can also use semi-sweet chocolate or even milk chocolate depending on your preference for sweetness.

Essential Steps:

  1. Prep the avocado: Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh. Aim for blemish-free flesh for the best texture.
  2. Lemon juice (optional): A squeeze of fresh lemon juice can help prevent the avocado from browning and add a touch of brightness to the flavor.
  3. Melt the chocolate: There are several ways to melt chocolate effectively:
    • Double boiler method: This is the most controlled method. Place a heat-resistant bowl over a pot of simmering water (not boiling) and add the chocolate. Stir constantly until melted and smooth.
    • Microwave method: Use short bursts of heat (15-20 seconds) in the microwave, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate, as it can seize and become unusable.
  4. Blending: For the creamiest texture, use a high-powered blender or food processor. Combine the avocado flesh, melted chocolate, and any additional flavorings (see below) and blend until completely smooth and silky. Scrape down the sides as needed to ensure even blending.

Additional Tips for Creaminess:

  • Avocado ripeness: As mentioned earlier, a perfectly ripe avocado is crucial. An underripe avocado will not be creamy enough, while an overripe one may have a brown tinge and off-flavor.
  • Chill before serving: Refrigerate the mousse for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld and the texture to firm up slightly for a more classic mousse experience.
  • Frozen banana (optional): Adding a frozen banana to the blender along with the avocado and chocolate can create an even richer and creamier texture. However, this will alter the flavor slightly.

Flavor Customization:

  • Sweeteners: If using dark chocolate, you may want to add a touch of honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar for additional sweetness.
  • Extracts: Vanilla extract, almond extract, or even a pinch of sea salt can enhance the flavor profile.
  • Toppings: Fresh fruit, chopped nuts, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or a dollop of whipped cream are all delightful ways to dress up your mousse.

With these tips and tricks, you’ll be well on your way to creating the dreamiest and most delicious avocado chocolate mousse anyone has ever tasted!

Storing Tips for leftover avocado chocolate mousse

General Storage:

  • Cooling: Always allow your mousse to cool completely at room temperature before storing it. This prevents the growth of bacteria.
  • Airtight container: Transfer the mousse to an airtight container. This minimizes air exposure, which can lead to browning and flavor degradation. Glass jars with tight-fitting lids or plastic containers with secure closures work well.
  • Refrigerate promptly: Creamy mousses, including avocado chocolate mousse, typically contain dairy products (avocado in this case) and require cold storage to maintain safety and quality. Transfer the container to the refrigerator promptly after it cools.
  • Label and date: Label your container with the name of the dip and the date it was made. This helps you track freshness and avoid consuming an expired product.

Storage Duration:

  • Homemade avocado chocolate mousse: Due to the avocado, this specific mousse will generally last in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
  • Mousses with dairy: Mousses made with cream cheese, milk, or yogurt may last for 3-5 days in the refrigerator, depending on the specific ingredients.
  • Commercially prepared mousses: These often contain preservatives and may have a longer shelf life as indicated on the packaging. However, once opened, follow the storage instructions on the label for optimal quality.

Additional Tips:

  • Minimize surface contact: When storing your mousse, press a layer of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dip before closing the container lid. This further limits air exposure.
  • Leftovers from a party: If the mousse was left out at room temperature for an extended period, it’s best to discard it to avoid potential foodborne illness.
  • Freezing: While some mousses can be frozen for longer storage (up to 2-3 months), freezing can affect the texture and consistency upon thawing. Avocado chocolate mousse, in particular, may not freeze well due to the avocado content.

By following these storage tips, you can ensure that your leftover creamy mousses stay fresh and enjoyable for as long as possible.

  1. A week ago I wouldn’t have even read this post. I’d have skipped straight past it. But on the first day of the AtoZChallenge, I tried avoacado for the first time ( and used it as my letter A. AND loved it. So obviously after that, I was drawn straight to this post and am not even a little freaked out you’ve mixed it with chocolate. I’m intrigued! So thanks. I’ll be back for more 🙂

  2. I’m loving this series, Nicole. I can’t believe that gorgeous, luscious, creamy mousse is made with just two ingredients! And since avocado is healthy, I’ll feel zero guilt scarfing this deliciousness down.
