Chocolate Desserts

Recently I made chocolate mousse and chocolate pudding using nutrient rich foods. Both has a rich flavour that I believe most of chocolate lovers will approve its taste. So I would like to share these recipes with you!


The first recipe, Avocado Chocolate Mousse, is for people who love dark chocolate; the second recipe, Kudzu Chocolate Pudding, is more for people who loves milky taste. It is a great dessert for kids also for guests! I used stevia as a sweetener for this recipe. I am usually not a big fun of the taste of stevia…but with this recipe, most likely because of the chocolate taste, you will not feel the stevia “aftertaste”. Also I tried to make it with other sweeteners (like maple syrup etc), but it was not as tasty as when I made with stevia.

1. Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients (serving for 2)

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • a few drops of stevia (liquid form)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened (use the good quality coco!)
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter
  • a dash of salt

Mush avocado until it gets really smooth or use the blender to make it smooth. Mix the rest of ingredients, and chilled in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours (this makes mousse to harden a bit, and becomes mousse like texture)

2. Kudzu Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients (serving for 2)

  • 1 cup almond milk (or any other nut milk)
  • a few drops of stevia (liquid form)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened (use the good quality coco!)
  • 1 tbsp Kudzu
  • 2 tbsp water

In a little bowl, place Kudzu powder, add water and mix well until smooth. In a pot, place almond milk, stevia, and cocoa powder and mix well on medium heat. When all the cocoa powder is well mixed in a liquid, add Kudzu mixture in and mix with wooden spoon. As the temperature rise up, the liquid will get thicken, so mix constantly to avoid burning the bottom. When it gets to the desirable texture, turn off the heat, pour them in a small serving bowls. Both warm and chilled are tasty!
