Carolina, author of La Cocina de Carolina , brings us a sweet recipe that you can prepare without regret : this avocado-based chocolate mousse is easy to prepare, light and very tasty!

After the holidays you will surely be thinking about dieting or at least reducing the consumption of sweets to lose those extra kilos that we have gained these days. Since I am not a fan of express diets, they only produce rebound effects that end up making you gain even more weight, today I propose a healthy chocolate mousse recipe that is much lighter than the mousse we are used to.

In addition, this mousse is suitable for lactose intolerant and vegans, as it does not contain dairy products and is made only of natural ingredients, all of which are healthy and beneficial for health.

The base is made of avocado, an ingredient full of healthy fats that are essential for our body, it has a lot of fiber, which will help you eliminate toxins gained from the excesses of these days. Avocado is the perfect substitute for cream as it has monounsaturated fats that are so beneficial for our skin and muscle cells, and can also lower bad cholesterol levels.

Light Chocolate Mousse

Set of two Le Creuset ceramic ramekins


40 g of chocolate 70%
2 very ripe avocados
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
250 ml of almond milk without added sugar
2 teaspoons Nomu vanilla extract
A pinch of fleur de sel
2 tablespoons ground almonds (or almond flour)
fresh blueberries to decorate


1. Put the avocado, vanilla extract , agave syrup, almond milk, coconut oil and salt in a large bowl and beat with our stick mixer until you get a more or less creamy consistency.

2. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and add it to the avocado cream and continue beating at maximum speed for about 2-3 minutes.

3. We check the sweetness point and rectify with more agave if necessary. You can also add more chocolate if you want, you can combine with defatted cocoa powder.

4. Pour the mousse into our ramekins and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

We serve with ground almonds and blueberries.

Hola Andrea,

Sí, disculpa, tienes razón que no estaba indicado en la receta. Se debe añadir al principio de todo, al mezclar la mayoría de ingredientes, ahora mismo lo corrijo en el texto, gracias y disculpa las molestias!

Hola Margarita, tanto el extracto como el aceite de coco los encuentras en nuestra sección de despensa, te dejo los links:

El sirope de ágave lo puedes encontrar en grandes superficies (a menudo cerca del azúcar y la miel), o en algunas herboristarías. Espero que la localices, y ya nos dirás qué tal resulta este delicioso mousse! :)
Saludos, Claudia
