Recipe Of The Week - Mother's Day Treat


Are you a Mum looking forward to mother's day treats today? Or perhaps you are the one doing the treating. We thought we would bring you a very quick and utterly delicious recipe for avocado and chocolate mousse. This is a pudding everyone will enjoy, rich, dark and very very chocolatey. To be enjoyed just occasionally so no better day than Mother's day!

Chocolate, chocolate everywhere, chocolate pud do I dare? Well, this is one of the healthiest chocolate desserts you will enjoy. Don't be put off by the avocado because this helps provide the healthy fat (healthy fat no less!) and texture without the addition of flour.


Avocado & Chocolate Mousse


  • 4 oz dark chocolate with 70% cocoa solids
  • 1 TBS virgin coconut oil
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 TBS cocoa powder
  • 1 TBS agave syrup, maple syrup, or honey (or any combination thereof)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt or normal sea salt


  1. In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate with the coconut oil. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat.  If you don't have a double boiler then fill a pan half full with water, place a heat proof (pyrex) dish into the pan so that it sits at the top of the pan without touching the water.  Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil in the bowl
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the avocado roughly with a fork then whisk to get the lumps out or make light work and use a food processor
  3. Combine the melted chocolate with the smooth avocado
  4. Add the remaining ingredients. Use a spatula to force the mousse through a fine mesh strainer to get any remaining lumps out
  5. Serve with a topping of greek yoghurt and a few raspberries and blueberries


Before treating yourself to this delicious pudding, find a recipe that the whole family will love!
