Serves 4


3 avocados (2 cups mashed)
½ cup maple syrup, or to taste
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ cup + 2 Tbl raw cacao powder (could sub cocoa powder)
3 Tbl almond butter
2 Tbl coconut oil (optional)
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg or cardamom

  1. Combine all of the ingredients (except Wild Orange Essential Oil) in a food processor or strong blender and process until smooth. Add Essential Oil, blend, taste and add more if needed.
  2. If you are using a blender, you may need to add liquid to get the mousse consistently.  To keep it live (raw), you can add almond milk.


~ Try doTERRA peppermint essential oil (less that one drop as it’s potent, taste and add more if needed)
~ ½ tsp any flavor extract (optional) (try mint, cherry, orange, almond, hazelnut, or coffee
~ Another option for orange mousse, add zest of 1 orange and 3Tbl of orange juice
