Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Passionfruit

By Chef Devan


Updated on

I love this vegan chocolate mousse because I feel great after I eat it.

The secret is avocados which may seem strange, but they add an unexpected richness to the dish.

The best part is this recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes and doesn’t require any cooking.

Easier, Faster and Healthier Vegan Mousse

I’m not going to pretend that this mousse is better than the original french thing with loads of cream and dairy.


But this vegan chocolate mousse is certainly easier, faster and way healthier than the latter.

And with this recipe, you don’t have to stress about dessert the next time one of your dinner guests is vegan or lactose intolerant.

The Secret is Avocados

This chocolate mousse uses the richness of avocados and the bitterness of cocoa powder to create an incredible texture that is difficult to achieve without cream and eggs.

This recipe is great because you can make it ahead of time and set it in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Quality over Quantity

As the base of this mousse is mainly avocados, it’s important to use good quality, ripe avocados.

The quality of cocoa powder can also make a huge difference. Find the best quality of cocoa powder you can find.

This one from Valrhona is really good.

Necessary Tools for the Vegan Chocolate Mousse

All you need is a food processor. I haven’t tried this in a stand blender, but I would imagine it might not work as well as the food processor.
