Gluten Free Dessert -
Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Are you having trouble finding a quick and easy gluten free dessert recipe?

Sometimes it can seem as though all the "puddings" are out of bounds because they have forbidden ingredients in them. Fresh fruit is fine, but can get a little boring, can't it?

Well here is a recipe that makes a piece of fresh fruit into something delicious and indulgent, while still being safe for those of us with celiac disease.

gluten free avocado mousse

Did you know that the avocado pear is high in protein? Not only that, but it also contains oils that are not only food for you internally, but due to the vitamin E content, are also great for your skin and hair!

Add in vitamins B and C, as well as a rich source of potassium ad this fruit is seriously good.

Dairy free too!

When you are first diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance you might find that you are also intolerant to lactose, which is found in milk products.

Alternatively, you might be cooking for someone who is following the gluten free casein free diet (CFGF).

This dessert is casein and dairy free so it does double duty.

Ingredients per serving

  • 1 avocado
  • 1-2 tsp gluten free cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tsp agave syrup (or honey if you are not vegan)
  • 1-2 tsp oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Quarter cup water


Remove the flesh from the avocado, blend it with the other ingredients then put the mixture into individual ramekin dishes or bowls.

Refrigerate and enjoy.


Tips and variations

Play with the ratio between cocoa and honey (or syrup) in this recipe to suit your taste.

Replace some of the oil with tahini for a different taste.

If you want to save on honey and add a little texture, use dates for sweetening.

Add all manner of other healthy ingredients that may tickle your fancy: a sprinkle of ground flaxseed...chopped nuts or seeds... a little grated orange rind.
