Chocolate-Avocado Mousse

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. + chilling

I have rheumatoid arthritis and I follow a special diet to help manage the symptoms. This pudding is simple to make and tastes heavenly. And the avocados can help reduce inflammation. I like it frozen, too. —Kelly Kirby, Mill Bay, Nova Scotia

  • 1/4 cup refrigerated sweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Transfer to 4 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until serving, at least 2 hours.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Feel free to swap in honey or agave syrup for the maple syrup. Just don't use granulated sugar or you'll end up with a slightly gritty texture.
  • If you are following a paleo diet, stick with maple syrup or honey for the sweeteners, and use unsweetened almond milk. You may need to double the amount of maple syrup, but taste as you're mixing and add only as much as you want.
