A decadently rich and irresistibly creamy avocado chocolate mousse on a oat-nut-date base that is not only delicious, also very healthy. The secret ingredient for the mousse is the heart-healthy avocado which has a creamy nutty flavour that works well with chocolate. If you have a milk allergy, substitute milk chocolate with dark one.

  • 3 tbsp Orange juice
  • 50 g Oat flakes
  • 80 g Dried dates
  • 50 g Almonds
  • 2 tsp Cocoa powder
  • 2 Ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • 100 g Milk chocolate, cut into smaller pieces
  • 1-2 tbsp Coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp Lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of ses salt
  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of orange juice with oats. Quarter the dried dates. Pulse dates and almonds in a food processor until they turn into crumbs. Add in 1 tablespoon of orange juice. Mix the almond-date-mixture with oats and cocoa powder. Press into three 12-cm tartlet moulds and put in the fridge.
  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl. Place over a small saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Using a food processor, blend the melted milk chocolate, melted coconut oil, avocados, lime juice, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt until smooth and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  4. Divide the mousse into tartlet cases and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Grate some milk chocolate over and arrange some avocado slices or fresh berries atop.

How beautiful are you tarts! I am amazed :) and they also sound fantastic. I love that mousse, actually I like everything about them :)

Jasna Varcakovic 18/1/14 09:50

Unusual, but I'm sure great combination. Tartlets look very pretty!

Bel | Ooh, Look... 18/1/14 11:27

This reminds me of chocolate tofu mousse - who would think that something as unlikely as avocado would go so well in a dessert? Love it!

Sam Hoffer @ My Carolina Kitchen 18/1/14 12:06

Your tarts are fabulously beautiful Angie. I imagine the creaminess of the avocado would be divine with the chocolate and as you say, very healthy too. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Paula @ Vintage Kitchen Notes 18/1/14 12:07

I like the idea of milk chocolate, since it's usually paired with dark, the avocado. And oat with dates in the crust? Love it!

Hema 18/1/14 12:22

The tarts look absolutely gorgeous, very delicious..

Lenia 18/1/14 13:05

They are divine!Healthy,pretty and delicious!

Gloria 18/1/14 13:28

Looks delicious.. Very healthy and innovative combination

angela@spinachtiger 18/1/14 15:10

I have always wondered about avocado with chocolate. I love tarts and am trying to eat very healthy. Angie, this looks delicious and a keeper.

Ashley 18/1/14 15:28

I used avocado and chocolate once for a sweet treat and absolutely loved it - I really need to do it more often! These little tartlets are adorable and they sound so delicious!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 18/1/14 15:59

Healthy and delicious! I really have to start baking with avocado.



Eva Taylor 18/1/14 18:00

One of our customers back at the design firm is making the very first allergen free chocolate (in North America, at least) and they are going to be launching baking chocolate too! How exciting for those with extreme allergies or intolerance's! I've noticed that avocado is often used as the cream in allergen free baking, particularly with chocolate (it covers up the rather unique flavour the avocado has). Of course, this recipe with nuts in the crust probably couldn't be called allergen free but it is lovely non-the-less. I'm sure it tastes and feels as decadent as it looks.

I always think avocado has a slight taste of banana in baked goods. That sounds so good with the chocolate Angie!

Daniela Grimburg 21/1/14 01:08

This looks and sounds amazing.
Have never tried avocado in a dessert before, but it sure looks worth while trying :)

mjskit 21/1/14 04:04

Another recipe that I know I really need to try. Aside from it looking absolutely scrumptious, I'm really curious as to how it taste. A very interesting combination of flavors. You are so clever Angie!

tigerfish 21/1/14 04:30

I like the creative spin on the crust using oat flakes (and not using any type of flour). Very clever! ;)

noobcook 21/1/14 05:54

chocolate, avocado and blueberries.... all my fave!

This a gorgeous tart and the avocado must give it a rich and distinct flavor. Really nice, Angie. Have a good week!

Debra Eliotseats 22/1/14 00:47

Devaki 23/1/14 14:40

Chocolate and avocado just incredibly creamy Angie but what I am really swooning over is your incredible crust with those marvelous ingredients. Happy New Year Angie, a bit late but so heartfelt :)

chow! Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

Angela @ My Golden Pear 23/1/14 20:00

I love combining avocado with dark chocolate but have never tried milk chocolate. Will definitely give it a go next time. Gorgeous pictures as always.

Tricia @ Saving room for dessert 24/1/14 01:16

I have always wanted to try an avocado dessert like this mousse. It sound pretty terrific but I think that crust has me very intrigued! Another amazing post Angie :)

motherrimmy 24/1/14 04:46

You make the most incredible desserts. I love the avocado you've used here. This is a healthy treat for sure.

Betty 25/1/14 05:13

Avocado and chocolate...two of my favorite foods in one delightful dish! I love that these tartlets are so full of healthful ingredients, especially since I have them all in my kitchen right now. :)

eatgood4life.blogspot.com 25/1/14 16:42

I am loving anything avocado lately. Never thought of incorporating it into a tart. This one must taste amazing. What a healthy option for a sweet tart. Pinning this one for sure to make soon.

sprinklesandsauce 25/1/14 22:52

This tartlet looks delicious!

Priscilla M 27/1/14 19:05

My family still can't grasp the concept of sweet avocado. I guess they're used to guacamole type avocado dish, where it needs to be sour/savory, but not sweet. But I grew up in Indonesia, and sweet avocado is always the way to go (I don't know anybody who doesn't like avocado smoothie growing up).
I love the idea of incorporating it into tart filing, it sounds heavenly!
OTT, where did you get those lovely colorful mini tart pans? I want them!

Geraldine Saucier 28/1/14 21:13

Oh, I love these tarts. Avocado and chocolate. Delicious - I see me making these tarts in the near future.

lena 29/1/14 04:17

a creamy avocado mousse sounds really good on the tart and it's simply gorgeous looking!

Kelly Mulcair Registered Nutritionist. Content © 2011 Trinity Nutrition. 1/2/14 08:37

Just beautiful Angie. I love avocado mousse and your crust sounds equally delicious -- great use of ingredients as always!

Monica 3/2/14 04:17

Wow! I'm usually a bit wary of desserts that include avocado without a whole bunch of dark chocolate to disguise it but this tart was so eye-catching. It sounds lovely too so will have to grow a pair one day and give it a try :)

Asmita 10/2/14 16:13

I would love to try this!
