Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse (Just Like Nutella!)

Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse (Just Like Nutella!)




Have you ever tried freezing raw vegan chocolate mousse? As a child I used to love frozen chocolate mousse topped with vanilla cream and hazelnut crumble! When I cut dairy and refined sugars out of my diet, I went looking for healthier alternatives. This Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse contains fresh hazelnut milk and maple syrup instead of the classic cream & white sugar. Put it in the freezer for 15 minutes or longer and you’ve got chocolate soft serve ice cream!

Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse

SERVES: 2 ½ cups

EQUIPMENT: blender, rubber spatula


Chocolate Mousse

2 small ripe avocados, pitted 
1 cup of hazelnut milk
 ¾ cup of maple syrup (or date paste, coconut nectar…)
½ cup + 2 tablespoons of cacao powder
1 tablespoon of carob powder (
½ teaspoon of hazelnut extract (for a strong hazelnut flavor; you can replace this with vanilla extract too)
2 large pinches of Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt


Cacao nibs
Hazelnuts, finely chopped


  1. Combine avocado, hazelnut milk, maple syrup, cacao powder, carob powder, hazelnut extract and salt in the blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Top with cacao nibs and finely chopped hazelnuts. Goji berries would make a great topping too!


  • This Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse will stay fresh for at least 2 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Can’t find any hazelnut extract where you live? For a true ‘nutella’ flavor, replace ½ avocado with ¼ cup of hazelnut butter and add extra hazelnut milk if needed.

Now I would love to hear from you! Which dessert reminds you of your childhood? I would love to create a raw vegan version for you, so please leave a comment down below!
