JJ Virgin's Recipe for Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Cacao Nibs

Makes 4 servings


  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, 85% cacao or higher (I like Green and Black's Organic)
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 3/4 cup plain cultured coconut milk (such as So Delicious)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons monk fruit extract, xylitol or erythritol
  • 4 teaspoons cacao nibs


  1. Melt chocolate - either in microwave or sauce pan. If microwave, melt 3/4 of the chocolate in 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until just melted and then stir in the remaining chocolate and let cool for 3 mins. (We can have this done already.)
  2. Combine avocado, sweetener, and coconut milk. Beat with mixer at high setting. Add chocolate and beat until light and fluffy. Divide into 4 bowls and refrigerate for 20 minutes or more.
  3. Sprinkle with raw cacao nibs before serving.
