How to make vegan avocado mousse

Making this mousse is beyond quick and easy. The longest part is melting your chocolate chips in the microwave and that take no longer than 5 minutes.

spoonful of chocolate mousse
  • Using a microwavable bowl, melt your vegan chocolate chips. Stop and stir every 30 seconds. Stop when the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Add all your ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Serve topped with your favorites toppings like coconut whipped cream, raspberries, and chocolate shavings.
  • Can be refrigerated for 2-3 days. It will harden slightly in the fridge so if you want a creamier texture when serving, allow it to sit a room temperature for 15 minutes or so.
