Chocolate Avocado Mousse to Whip Up for Sugar-Free Dessert


Every year, a new dietary trend takes center stage. And this year, so many of you are clamoring for sugar-free everything! Keto became a buzzword last year, but that extremely low carb diet is often dairy heavy. Fortunately, there are lots of delicious ways to enjoy something sweet sans sugar and dairy. This dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate avocado mousse, for example, is a quick and easy fix to satisfy rich and creamy dessert cravings.

Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Avocado Mousse Recipe with Ingredient Tips (Plant-Based, Low Carb, Paleo-Friendly)

Chocolate Avocado Mousse to Whip Up for Sugar-Free Dessert

There are many low carb desserts out there, but most contain dairy. This creamy mousse is dairy-free and uses sugar alternatives to keep the sugars down. I do have some tips on the ingredients to help you locate them, and substitute if needed.

Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Chocolate Avocado Mousse Ingredient Tips

Avocados – Make sure you use very ripe avocados with no bruising. They should still give just a bit when touched.

Coconut Milk – Use full-fat canned coconut milk for the creamiest results. Coconut milk beverage is much thinner and will produce more of a pudding. If using full-fat coconut milk, you can refrigerate the mousse for 1 to 4 hours. It will thicken.

Chocolate Chips – Unlike unsweetened chocolate chips, sugar-free chocolate chips are sweetened with a sugar-free sweetener. Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are the most popular dairy-free, sugar-free brand, but we have more options in our Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Guide.

Sugar Substitutes – Pure stevia is way too strong at that quantity. You need to use a prepared version that made for substitutions, or simply add it to taste. You might opt for an Erythritol-Stevia Blend to cover both ingredients, or you can just use one sugar substitute to taste. Many people like Swerve.

Low Sugar instead of Sugar-Free? – If you simply want to reduce sugars, but don’t need sugar-free, you can substitute any of the sugar-free sweeteners with your favorite sweetener. You can also use regular, dairy-free dark chocolate chips.

  1. I’d love to make this today! But I’m wondering if I could use a different natural sweetener instead of the erythritol? Perhaps honey or coconut sugar?
