Hello, I am The Blender Girl, and I continue my shameless bribes with chocolate. 

I am a proud raw chocoholic. Or more specifically, a raw chocolate moussaholic. Today, I thought it was time I posted my favourite raw chocolate puddinh recipe that can be made in less than five minutes in your blender (I like to use my Vitamix) and is absolutely divine. If the allergy free gluten free brownies didn't do the trick, I feel quite certain that this will. 

Those of you who joined my chocoholics program with the tofu chilli pepper mousse and raw chocolate butter know only too well the joys of the dairy free, sugar free vegan chocolate experience. Those of you who are new - welcome to our twelve-step program, where we can enable our addiction without too much collateral damage. In fact, the experience is downright delicious, and totally guilt free.

Today we are amending step 10 from our tofu chocolate chilli mousse post, as we have progressed to a soy free raw vegan state where: “we continued to accept that we were powerless over chocolate mousse, but found that we could now embrace a dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, and also soy free, raw, vegan alternative; that was just as quick, just as easy, and just as sublime!” But, "just" with our tofu chocolate chilli pepper mousse -- proceed with caution. This raw recipe is also deceptive, kicking even the most sober cream and sugar addict back into denial. I have served this to many a cream dreamer and received rave reviews.

The key ingredient in this tasty raw recipe is perfect avocados that have just ripened. It is important that they have no bruises as this will make your raw chocolate pudding bitter and unpalatable. I know some of you are wincing with terror at the mere thought of an "avocado pudding"! What? But anyone who has made the raw key lime mousse, raw avocado pudding, or tasted any other raw puddings know the joys of the sweet avocado -- the raw world's yummy little trick for creaming up desserts. Those of you avocado lovers who are not familiar with this piece of magic -- welcome to one of the most helpful tools in your dairy free, soy free repertoire! For those of you looking for allergy recipes this little trick is a lifesaver too! Try using avocados to bring a creamy texture to vegan desserts or to thicken and add texture to vegan smoothies, dairy free dips and vegan pies. I will often substitute avocado for banana in my raw smoothies to lower the sugar content. For those of you who are avocado skeptics, keep an open mind on this one and you will reap the rewards. I promise. I have served this raw chocolate mousse to a myriad of people and almost nobody has guessed that the base was avocado. If you get the balance of ingredients right, you can't even taste it!

In order to achieve this all-important balance (for avocado skeptics anyway) you need good quality, rich decadent cocoa powder or raw cacao powder. Any self-respecting chocolate mousse aficionado knows all too well that great chocolate is a prerequisite for any decadent chocolate mousse. For my addiction, I always use organic raw cacao powder.

Just with the vegan tofu chocolate mousse, this raw chocolate mousse is a beacon of hope for any dairy free, chocolate mousse addict suffering from withdrawals; and an even brighter light for those of you following a soy free diet. I like to use raw almond butter in this recipe as it adds a more rounded dimension and depth of flavour that is scrumptious. If you don't add it, the blend can be a bit flat. If you are wanting to make this nut free, coconut cream is delicious as well. You could omit the coconut cream and almond butter altogether and just add more vanilla, agave and cacao; but I like this blend because it is not too sweet and rich, and the flavours are better balanced.

But regardless, you can make your chocolate pudding as decadent as you want by adding in more sweetener, cacao and vanilla; more almond butter; or even use maple syrup, which is incredibly tasty. I have also used raw and dried soaked dates which is really unbelievable! Experiment with the cinnamon too. I like just a hint. But some people prefer more. Adding chilli is fantastic in this recipe too! You could also add in some bananas as a substitute for a couple of the avocados! That is YUMMO!

Serve this with some berries, vegan cream, shaved coconut, chocolate or nuts to complete your heavenly experience. Trust me -- give this recipe a go in your blender and let your inner chocolate mousse addict sing. You know my penchant for the 5 minute vegan pudding recipes! Just like the berry custard, it just doesn’t get any easier than this recipe. Just throw, blend, chill, gobble, and celebrate your addiction. Now….I'm off to a meeting.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cinnamon Mousse

Decadent Raw Chocolate Cinnamon Pudding

  • 4 ripe organic avocados - halved, pit removed and discarded, flesh scooped out
  • 1/2-3/4 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa powder (this will vary according to the cocoa powder used)
  • 3/4 - 1 cup of raw agave nectar, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp raw almond butter OR 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 2 Tbsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of Celtic sea salt to taste
  1. Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and puree until smooth. You may need to use your tamper or spatula, scrape the sides of the blender and pulse a few times. This mixture gets very thick.
  2. Spoon into glasses and chill for a couple of hours before serving. YUM!

Tips!

the best way to clean your blender

After blending up something sticky, gooey or smelly, just place a few drops of soap in the carriage with some warm water and blend on high until all of the congealed food slips away from the blades and sides. Then repeat this process. Then rinse with water and presto! Clean carriage. 
If you have smells or stains repeat this process with some bicarbonate of soda or lemon juice and water.

I have tried this, along with a couple of other desserts with avocados as the main ingredient.  No one I serve these to has a clue that the base is avocado….  This is smooth, creamy, rich - and CHOCOLATE!  And it couldn’t be easier.

reply

This was really good. I still can’t get over making puddings with avocado. But it works!

reply

Oh this is really good. I added a bit more cocoa to mine as I wanted to really chocolatey. I am putting avocados in all of my smoothies now. Thanks for the tip.

reply

This is really simple (which makes it fun) to make and yum yum in my piggy tum tum!

reply

I made this for my kids the other night and it was a huge hit. They couldn’t believe it when I told them it was made with avocado!

I just made this tonight and we cannot believe how good it tastes with the avocado.

This recipe is a winner! It made me look like a pro at my dinner party last night. They all loved it! Thanks again..keep posting :-)

reply

I couldn’t believe how easy and how tasty this mousse was.  AND that the base was avocado! I was a bit more “generous” with the cocoa , sweetener and cinnamon, and all of the “toxic omnivores” were completely fooled! I love your blog and I love your piggy language. Thankyou so much for all of your super easy, pigilicious recipes. You are an inspiration! Signed - your new number one fan.

This is so creamy and delicious. I could not believe it had no dairy in it. I am moving onto the other avocado mousses now. Thanks Tess

reply

After making the key lime mousse with avocado, I just HAD to try the chocolate version. Oh twist my arm! AMAZING again Tess.

reply

My family and I devoured this the other night for dessert. I don’t normally make dessert as I don’t like my kids to have too much refined sugar. This is a nice healthy balance where we can all enjoy a treat and not eat too much bad stuff.

reply

This looks absolutely delicious. I am always trying to come up with helping deserts for my toddler. Can’t wait to try this out.  Thank you. I love your site!

reply

I totally want to make this! Can you tell me what the little cookies are that are in the picture?! THOSE look good too!

reply

Hey Venita - yeah….this mousse is a winner! I can’t claim credit for those little cookies though - they are the Banana Ginger cookies that GO RAW makes! They are PIGGILICIOUS!

reply

This mousse rocks !!! Had people over and they never knew what the base was ... just yum

reply
