5 Ingredient Best/Easiest-Chocolate-Mousse-You’ve-Ever-Had Recipe
So I’ve teased, and I’ve taunted, and I’ve led you on. It’s basically a high school flirtation only I’m actually posting it so…actual emotional fulfillment? Whatever, you get closure and I don’t have to worry about drunken 4 am phone calls.

5 INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE MOUSSE RECIPE
YOU WILL NEED:
2 ripe avocados
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sweetener (I used honey, because I’m a diehard beegan, but agave or dates or maybe even maple syrup? would work)
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
& the secret ingredient: a splash (maybe a tablespoon?) of olive oil OR almond milk. I’m preeetty sure I’ve done both. Or just olive oil both times. Sorry, there was a Wine Tuesday involved, I’m surprised I remember at all.
+ a blender/food processor
I got this recipe from these two places, but had some difficulty getting it to blend, maybe due to my using honey instead of agave. I added olive oil to correct this, and it made it a LOT lighter and stopped my blender making that horrible noise/smell.
Slice avocados open and scoop the fruit into the blender/food processor.
I topped mine with sliced up giant chocolate chunk cookies for which I just halved my perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe (Phoebe’s grandmother’s friend Nestlay Tolhooose, anyone?) which you can find on the back of any package of sugar, flour or chocolate chips (minus eggs, sub 1 tsp. cornstarch & 3 tsp. water) & baked at 350 for 15-17 minutes.
