Drunken Avocado-Chocolate Mousse

A Sweet Vegan Dessert Variation of the Traditional Savory Guacamole


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened organic cocoa powder (or more if needed to lend a deep brown color to mousse)
  • honey, stevia or brown sugar—to sweeten according to preference
  • ¼ to 1/3 cup of currants
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • a splash of Cognac
  • light colored fruit slices and whipped RICE cream for decoration


  • Scoop avocados out of their shell into mixing bowl
  • Gradually add cocoa powder until mousse is dark chocolate brown
  • Slowly add sweetener, tasting intermittently to achieve desired sweetness
  • Plump currants in pre-boiled water for 1-2 seconds, drain & add to mix
  • Add 2-3 drops of vanilla extract
  • Add a splash of Cognac (or more if you prefer a stronger alcoholic kick)
  • Mix well until completely smooth, homogenous & free of lumps
  • Scoop into serving bowl
  • Decorate with small bits of light-colored fruit & whipped RICE-cream (to keep it Vegan)
  • Serve with biscotti, cinnamon crackers or other semi-sweet cookies.
  • Makes 4-6 portions
