    This gorgeously creamy chocolate mousse is actually dairy free and egg free - totally vegan - and has the goodness of avocado to boot!

    This is a brilliant recipe - tasty, rich and decadent and so easy to make. I use a stick blender, the result is still creamy and smooth. The recipe is easily adapted to other flavourings - I like it with a little ground cardamom rather than the orange, but you could use other flavours and ring the changes - ginger, lime or lavender for instance. It's easy to make the dish more or less sweet, by slightly adjusting the agave syrup - I go for two rather than three tbsps. of syrup. Honey could be used instead of agave syrup by the way. I have also made it with coconut yogurt (Coyo), instead of thick coconut milk which worked just fine. This is a very versatile recipe and definitely my preferred recipe for a chocolate pot/mousse now. N.B. This actually makes enough for three generous ramekin size portions and as it's so rich, I would say it is plenty for four espresso cup size portions to finish a three course meal.  -  14 Feb 2015


    Brilliant! I've never had a vegan chocolate mousse before that was as creamy and decadent as this! You don't taste avocado at all. thanks for a super recipe!  -  16 May 2013


    Excellent recipe. I omitted the vanilla, orange and cayenne and added mint extract and a little more agave. Delicious with raspberries and dairy free ice cream  -  12 Aug 2015
