Avocado Chocolate Mousse truffles with Raspberries & Pistachios are a delicious vegan treat for a romantic date or simply to impress!
Okay, stay with me here, If you haven’t already tried an avocado chocolate mousse, this might sound really odd. But the avocado creates such a rich, creamy taste to the mousse that it’s something special!
Plus with just a couple of kitchen tools ( and some ice), you can create beautiful vegan truffle cups filled with avocado chocolate mousse, raspberries and pistachios for the perfect combination with every bite!
Plus the recipe is completely refined sugar-free, naturally sweetened and a 100% vegan healthy dessert!
Also, If you’re wanting a really even finish to the truffle cups then feel free to swap out the creative ice method when making your shells and instead use a silicone mould. However, I love to get friends involved when using the ice method because it really is A LOT of fun!

Makes: 5-6 depending on ice cubes size
Preparation Time: 5-10 mins
For the avocado Chocolate mousse:
- 1 large avocado
- 1/4 cup hazelnut milk (or your favourite milk)
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
- pinch salt
- a handful of raspberries
- a handful of pistachios
- ice cubes
- ~1 cup dark chocolate (or milk chocolate if you prefer)
- To begin making these vegan truffles, Add all the mousse ingredients in a blender/food processor and mix until smooth.
- Melt the chocolate. It’s best to do it on a double boiler but you could also do it in the microwave in 10-15 second increments.
- Pour the melted chocolate over an ice cube. I made heart shaped ice cubes using a heart shaped muffin mould but you can use square ice cubes.
As soon as the chocolate has hardened on top of the ice, remove it – this is the chocolate truffle cup.
- Add a couple of raspberries in each chocolate truffle cup, fill with the mousse and then sprinkle with pistachios.
- To finish it, pour some more melted chocolate on top and carefully spread it. This will turn your truffle cups into truffles!
Put the chocolate cups in the fridge for a few minutes so the top layer of chocolate hardens as well.
Note: This last step is optional and you can enjoy the chocolate cup filled with the raspberries and mousse without closing it off with more chocolate.
