Chocolate-Avocado Mousse

Avocados are calorie dense and easy to tolerate during a UC flare. They’re also a great source of potassium, which is important to maintain electrolyte balance.


  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • ¼ cup regular unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. dark baking cocoa
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. unsweetened cashew milk (or unsweetened almond, coconut, or soy milk)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish (optional)


Step 1 Place all ingredients (with the exception of raspberries) in a high-power blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and chill for 1 hour. Divide equally into four bowls; garnish with raspberries, if desired.
