Everyone loves chocolate and strawberries, and this creation will be no exception. Both sweet and refreshing at the same time, this dessert is sure to win some praise. The best part: it is made with wholesome, unprocessed ingredients. There's even avocados in it.  But if you don't tell, no one will know, I promise!

The farmer's market has been filled with merchants selling strawberries lately. They are big, very red, and so juicy. It makes such a difference to buy them fresh, organic, and in season!
They are rich in anti-oxidants, fibers, and nutrients.  They also offer  many health benefits such as: lowering high blood pressure, maintaining a healthy heart, slowing down skin aging, helping with weight loss (even though they taste sweet, they are pretty low in calories!), and boosting of the immune system. So many good reasons to indulge! They are definitely among my favorite fruits!
Don't be afraid to indulge, this dessert is good for you!



  • 2 small ripe avocados, pitted and skin removed
  • 1/2 cup of raw unsalted cashews (preferably soaked for 2 hours in water to release the enzyme blockers, then rinsed)
  • 2/3 cup of non-dairy milk (I used my homemade vanilla cashew milk but any non-dairy milk will work)
  • 1/3 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 20-25 large strawberries (the quantity will depend on the size of your strawberries)


  1. In a high speed blender, put the avocados, the cashews, the non-dairy milk, the cacao powder, the maple syrup, and the salt together, and mix until very smooth. This will be your chocolate mousse.
  2. Cut off the top of the stems of the strawberries, and a little bit of the base so they can stand. 
  3. Using a small paring knife or a small spoon, hollow out the inside of the strawberries, and set aside.
  4. Put the chocolate mousse in a piping bag.  Fill the strawberries with the chocolate mousse mixture. Serve immediately, or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.



Bon appetit!

This will make 20-25 stuffed strawberries (4 servings)
