Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries

Avocado Chocolate Mousse Recipe

We had amazing food at this year’s retreat to the Lumeria Maui. And when you’re on a yoga retreat, doing many hours of yoga each day you really need a great dessert. This Avocado Chocolate Mousse was, hands-down, the group’s favorite, because hello, chocolate?

The base is nutrient-dense avocado, making it great for the non-dairy people in the crowd. But I’ll just say, for the record, that I love my dairy and I LOVE this dessert. (Since I’m on the low-sugar train I even tried it with less sweetener and raw cacao and that worked, too). I plan to make it on Thanksgiving and fool all my guests who happen to be afraid of avocado as a dessert choice.

Thank you to Lumeria and Chef Ben Diamond for sharing it with us!

Avocado Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries

Serves 4


1 1/2 cup avocado meat (about three avocados)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup agave
2 tablespoons grade B maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch kosher salt
1 cup strawberries


1. Place all ingredients except strawberries into a food processor and blend till smooth.
2. Serve with fresh sliced strawberries and mint sprig for garnish
3. Try not to eat all of it at once like Jason does.


  1. Hello Andrea, a few questions, I wish you have an answer..
    Agave .- Actually agave, like alcohol? or agave syrup?
    Something else instead of grade B maple syrup?

    1. Hi Ana! It’s Agave Nectar. You can find it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Wholesome-Sweeteners-Organic-Agave-Nectar/dp/B006IWY8J8

      As for the maple syrup, grade B is definitely best because it is rich in manganese and zinc. I suppose grade A could be substituted, you just wouldn’t get the same health benefits. You can also purchase grade B on Amazon:

      Hope that helps!
