An amazingly delicious no-bake dessert that is super healthy and easy to make. Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse Tarts…healthy never tasted this good!



Ingredients for base
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts (or a mix of both)
  • 8 large Medjool dates,
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • pinch of himalayan pink salt or sea salt
Ingredients for Chocolate Avocado Mousse
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 4 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
  • up to 1/2 cup maple syrup
For serving
  • raw cacao nibs and coconut flakes (sulphite-free)


To make the crust
  1. In a food processor, pulse all the nuts, until a fine grind.
  2. Add in the dates, cacao powder and salt and continue mixing until crumbs form.
  3. Add one tablespoon of water at a time and continue mixing until the mixture starts to stick.
  4. Turn off mixer, and scoop out the mixture into a bowl.
  5. Press into silicone cupcake moulds (or oil a muffin pan with a bit of liquid oil (grape seed is best) and press into the bottoms of each well. Place the moulds/ pan into the freezer for about 1 hour minimum to set.
  6. Wipe the food processor with paper towel so it’s ready for the filling ingredients.
To make the Chocolate Avocado Mousse
  1. Slice the avocados lengthwise, remove the pits and using a spoon scoop out the avocado meat and place into the food processor.
  2. Add in raw cacao powder, vanilla extract and maple syrup and mix to until smooth.


Notes: You can make these recipes completely separately also! Use the base recipe to make energy/ protein balls. And use the mousse recipe to make a nice mousse to serve on its own topped with raw cacao nibs and coconut. If I make the mousse to serve alone, I make it in a smaller serving size with just 1 avocado, 1 tablespoon of raw cacao powder and about 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. If I just make this as a quick snack, I often omit the vanilla extract and keep it super easy and simple.
