The avocado's main purpose is to create the creamy texture inherent to mousses. It also delivers those great monounsaturated fats that kids need to grow. In order to make the best live mousse possible, use avocadoes that have just ripened. If the avocados are overripe or under-ripe, the avocado flavor will be evident.

Serves: 4 | Vegan | Time: 30 min or less | Gluten Free


  • 3 Hass avocados (2 cups mashed)
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 Tbsp. raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. raw cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoon raw almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg or cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon flavored extract such as mint, cherry, orange, almond, hazelnut, or coffee (optional)

Purée all of the ingredients in a food processor for 3 to 4 minutes. You can stop when the consistency is smooth and creamy, like a mousse. You might need to scrape the sides of the bowl at times to be sure all ingredients are properly mixed. Scoop into serving bowls and serve directly.
