{Dairy Free} Chocolate Mousse

This recipe is a firm favourite at parties and lunches and the reason I love it is because its rich and chocolately and best of all – it contains NO dairy. It uses Avo’s. Yup! Before you gag – try it for yourself and I promise you will be pleasantly surprised!

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

  1. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Make sure the base doesn’t touch the water
  2. Break the chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly
  3. Meanwhile, halve and remove the avocado pip, then scoop the flesh into a blender, nutribullet or food processor, discarding the skins.
