I've made vegan chocolate mousse, using avocados, before. The recipe I used was slightly different. It was just avocados, cocoa powder, a little salt, a healthy pinch of expresso to bring out the chocolate flavor, some pure vanilla extract and sugar to taste. Then, you blend it smooth.<br /><br />Two super important things: it only tastes good when it's allowed to chill. So, resist the urge to eat it right out of the food processor bowl.<br /><br />Second, in my experience, this recipe really only works with Haas avocados. I tried making it with another kind that was larger with smooth, light green skin and it didn't come out well at all. Different varieties have different textures.
