This actually started out as an avocado smoothie, but it was so thick and creamy that I decided to turn it into an avocado mousse. I usually eat this as part of my breakfast, but I’m pretty sure it will taste great for dessert too. This was so delicious that my brother is now officially an avocado-lover!
I have to say, my brother and I licked our mugs clean very fast.
If you want chocolate avocado mousse, just add cocoa powder and there you go. But if you really love avocado, this tastes perfectly fine on its own, no cocoa powder added! Due to different preferences in the family, I sometimes even make one mug just avocado, and the other one chocolate. And please, don’t refrain by doubling or tripling this recipe if needed as it originally only makes two servings.
This is a very simple recipe, but I wanted to share it with you because it is so good and healthy. The mousse actually contains a lot of milk compared to other avocado mousse recipes on the internet, so if you think this is a bit too liquid (though I found it was perfect) you can adjust it by adding less milk or adding more avocados.
Creamy Avocado Mousse
1 ripe avocado
1 medium banana
2 tbsp. agave syrup
1/4 cup green grapes, frozen (optional)
1/4 cup cocoa powder (Optional. Add this is if you want chocolate avocado mousse.)
1 1/4 cup almond milk
- Blend all the ingredients in a blender.
- Pour into 2 glass mugs or bowls and serve with raspberries, nuts, shredded coconut, etc. (If you are making the chocolate version for dessert, refrigerate for at least 3 hours to make it extra creamy and firm before serving.)
