Overripe Avocado Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Did you know you can take the fight against food waste home with you? Yes, yes you can!

And you should.

It's a win-win: stretch those grocery dollars while you reduce your climate footprint. (The average American spends about $3,000 per year on unused groceries... yikes)

Give some new recipes a try for National Upcycling Month. Nearly a third of Americans admit forgetting about leftovers they meant to eat, and about a quarter lose interest in their leftovers. All of these, and more, are the factors that lead to food waste.
Revitalize leftovers and explore recipes for the top 10 most wasted foods with us, all month long.

Overripe Avocado Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Overripe avocados are often one of the top items wasted at home. Instead of tossing them? Make this delicious dairy-free dessert. 


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: Fresh berries, shredded coconut, nuts, or mint leaves

  1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a blender or food processor.
  2. Add cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the blender.
  3. Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. You might need to scrape down the sides a few times to ensure everything is well-mixed.
  4. Taste and adjust sweetness or cocoa to your preference.
  5. Spoon the mousse into small bowls or cups.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld and to achieve a thicker consistency.
  7. Serve chilled, topped with your favorite toppings like fresh berries, shredded coconut, nuts, or a sprig of mint.
