Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Coarsely chop the chocolate then put the pieces in the upper part of a bain-marie. Let the chocolate melt. Alternatively put the chocolate pieces in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring between each and watching carefully so that the chocolate does not burn. When it is almost completely melted, remove it from the stove top or the microwave and stir until smooth. Set aside and let cool until just barely warm.
  2. Cut the avocados in half, twist out the pit and spoon out the flesh into a blender. Add the melted chocolate, cocoa powder, almond milk, maple syrup, and one pinch of salt. Blend until very smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.
  3. Pour the mixture into individual bowls. Chill the mousse in the refrigerator for about 1 h or overnight.
  4. You may throw some berries or chocolate shavings on top, if you like, then serve.
