Today’s recipe is a sweet little treat made with healthy fats from avocado, naturally sweet Medjool dates, and mineral & antioxidant loaded raw CaCoCo chocolate blend. Not only is this dessert rich and flavorful, but it’s also vegan/plant based, refined sugar-free, and loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Don’t let the avocado scare you, I promise you cannot even taste it after the espresso, cacao, and Medjool dates are added! Avocado gives this recipe the perfect creamy texture that you will be sure to love. This kicks your typical Jell-O pudding to the curb! Plus you can make it in under 5 minutes!

Eat it plain, or spread it on a brown rice cake or whole grain toast for a quick snack!

    Looks great, and love that it’s made with avocado!
    I made this directly after reading this post, but adjusted a lot to what ingredients I have atm. I made it without espresso and with carob powder instead of cacao. Do you know carob?
    People use it as a cacoa substitute but I just really love the taste on its own.
    Unfortunately my kitchen machine couldn’t handle the dates, I guess I need something stronger.

      Hi Judith! Yes, I absolutely love carob! Try soaking your dates for a couple of hours before blending the mousse next time! It might help it get smoother <3
