Chocolate Avocado Mousse for Baby Led Weaning

Recipe By Aileen Cox Blundell

I am a huge fan of using fruit to sweeten dishes for my children especially for healthy baby led weaning recipe. For smaller babies, I tend to start with more savoury foods but when those babies grow up and see Mum or Dad or even older siblings eating a treat, you can be sure they will want one too. It is great to have a healthy treat recipe like this that you know contains only good ingredients; avocado, banana, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut milk and yogurt! That is really it! I love when a simple recipe comes together 🙂

3 glasses full of chocolate avocado mousse and yogurt topping

It’s important to use the right milk for this avocado mousse

This baby friendly mousse uses recipe cocoa powder which is bitter when you taste it directly from the container, but, add a mashed banana and voila you have a yummy chocolate! I also used a full fat coconut milk and this is important. The coconut milk helps the chocolate mousse turn into…well a mousse and if you use half fat milk, it stays like a sauce. Still nice, but not as nice in my opinion.

How to make the yogurt topping

For the topping I use Greek yogurt mixed with 1 mashed banana and a sprinkle of cocoa powder. Honestly you will taste this and you will never buy a sweet yogurt again EVER! These little jars take less than 5 minutes to prepare, they set in about 2 hours so make the night before and voila, a healthy breakfast, or afternoon healthy treat (or both!).

I can’t wait to hear what you think of this amazingly easy chocolate avocado mousse for your baby! It’s so easy to whip up and the whole family will enjoy this healthy dessert, not just your baby!

Seriously get the ingredients and get making! They are amazingly good!

My 1 year old absolutely loved this. It turned out so smooth and just like a mousse. I was wondering, how long does this keep for?
