Vegan Chocolate Mousse Torte


The more and more I cook vegan recipes, the more I am amazed at what you can come up with. There are so many different things you can make with natural ingredients, some of which are better than all the processed stuff! This Vegan Chocolate Mousse Torte is an example of that. How can you make mousse vegan? A simple creamy ingredient does the trick…Avocado! I know right, Avocado? Seems crazy but I served this on two different occasions to friends and nobody had any idea. I waited until they literally licked their plates to tell them that the main ingredient besides chocolate is Avocado. Pretty amazing.

Delicious Rating: When I started cooking vegan I thought that desserts would be out of the question but this vegan dessert recipe really proves me wrong. It is rich in chocolate so this is perfect for any chocolate lover. I cut up some strawberries and let the juices flow with some powdered sugar and it really helped cut the richness. I don’t mind rich chocolate desserts but some do. Either way this chocolate mousse torte is a hit! Super easy recipe to cook and you can make it a day ahead for convenience. Let me know what you think!

This easy recipe starts out simply with making the torte.

You will definitely be tempted to eat this mousse, it is like pudding in your mouth.

The longer the cake sits out the more the avocado will taste because of it coming to room temperature. Don’t leave it out, just stick it back in the freezer between servings.




  1. After reading this, I get hungry for avocados. Thanks for the useful info, how about you drop by and give me a few tips, would apreciate it.

  2. well, i got 60% dark chocolate chips, but they still had milk fat. so mine isn’t vegan its vegetarian. 🙁

  3. I tried this recipe today, and all I have to say is yuuuuuuuuummo! It came out just the same as your pictures, and it’s silky smooth both in the base, and the mousse itself.
    In fact, I’m keen to try using the mousse on it’s own in some chocolate cups or the like.
    Thanks so much for the recipe. It’s brilliant!

  4. well i tried it, and the cream didn’t taste good. it doesn’t taste like traditional chocolate mousse at all! I had to put sugar in…but it didn’t help much. I would try such a cake with melting chocolate in soy or oats cream. sorry!

    1. I am so sorry Anja! The maple syrup, peanut butter, and chocolate naturally sweeten the mousse. Since it is a vegan chocolate mousse made with avocado it won’t be exactly like a traditional mousse but it still tastes delicious! Sorry it didn’t work out for you!

  5. Okay, first of not vegan, but this look delicious. Second off, I can’t have soy and regular milk makes me iffy at times (comes and goes). I was wondering if soy milk in this can be substituted with coconut milk or rice milk, can’t have almond milk either but coconut and rice are safe for me.

  6. I love this recipe! It has become a family favorite since we went from vegetarian to vegan. Can you please post the nutritional facts?

    1. I am so glad your family loves this chocolate vegan torte Jessica! I don’t have the nutritional facts but you can use different calorie counter websites to add up the ingredients!
