It takes less than 5 minutes to make this easy to make this incredibly creamy, sugar-free and packed with nutrients, avocado chocolate gingerbread mousse! It’s dairy free and vegan too.
Being healthy does not mean you have to give up chocolate pudding when you have a couple of avocados to hand. Even better if they are local St Lucia avocado which are just huge. I’ve found that the avocados grown in the Caribbean are the size of a large grapefruit. However, they are seasonal so when they are available, we make the most of them.
I often whip up an avocado chocolate mousse when the sweet urgings descend with a vengeance and I need chocolate to stop the hungry growling tigress in me. I throw everything in a blender and within minutes I’m eating a creamy chocolate dessert and am back to purring like a kitten. The Chief Taster can then come out of hiding and calm order is restored in the household.
To make a more winter comfort avocado chocolate mousse I added the warm spices of gingerbread mainly being ginger, nutmeg and allspice. I find it adds a little extra something to your avocado chocolate mousse and does not just have to be for winter. Enjoy these flavours all year round.
Dairy Free Dessert
Avocado puddings are an easy way to make a dairy free dessert. If you are looking for a dairy free pudding then you must try this dairy free chocolate pudding. The chocolate pudding has such a rich texture you will double check the recipe to make sure it's low carb!
If you refrigerate the coconut milk overnight, it will be extra creamy and thick with the solid coconut cream sitting at the top of the tin. Just scoop the solid cream and set aside the water. When you are blending the mousse, add the water to alter the consistency to your taste.

Just discovered your site and I’m
Very excited by the recipes. Was wondering if you might be able to offer an approximate weight measurement for the avocado since they come is such varied sizes. Would love to make this but I’m assuming ratio matters. Thanks so much!!!
I hear you about the average weight of an avocado as the one's in Saint Lucia can be larger than your fist! An average avocado is 7.6 ounces (215 grams).
