Total Time: 25 Minutes
Serves 4


For the topping:
  • 2 tbsp of jumbo porridge oats
  • 1½ tsp of desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup
For the mousses:
  • 2 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Avocados
  • 4 tbsp of natural cacao powder
  • 5 tbsp of maple syrup
  • ½ tsp of vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp of dairy-free coconut milk yogurt alternative


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. For the topping, combine the oats, desiccated coconut and maple syrup in a bowl, then spread out on a small parchment-lined baking tray. Bake for 6 minutes, stirring halfway, until crisp and golden; set aside.
  2. To make the mousse, whizz the avocado, cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract with a pinch of sea salt in a food processor until smooth. Add the coconut milk yogurt and whizz again until combined. (If the mixture is a little lumpy, you may want to pass it through a sieve.)
  3. Spoon into 4 small glass jars or ramekins. Eat immediately, or chill for up to 24 hours, adding the topping just before serving.
