Chocolate pudding made from avocados?!!! If your response is anything like mine, it is hard to envision a chocolate dessert pudding that is made with avocados. You might be seeing a green pudding but rest assured the pudding is not green, it doesn’t taste like avocados and it IS good and healthy. Did you know that avocados are packed with good fats and have more useable protein for your body than a steak?
You will just have to try it for yourself. Do a fun taste test – serve it to friends and family that have not watched you make it and do not know what ingredients are included. The pudding is not super sweet but instead is reminiscent of a dark chocolate flavor. The avocados are simply there to add “pudding texture”. I found the recipe here and then added a few notes and modifications which are included in my recipe below.
- 2 avocados – the riper the better your pudding will mix and be a better texture
- 2 Tablespoons of honey (raw and unfiltered is the best)
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 2 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Unsweetened almond milk – add to your desired creaminess
- Agave – add a bit to enhance texture and sweetness
The recipe requires a lot of taste and texture testing throughout to get your desired pudding (bummer, right?!!). Combine all ingredients (except for the almond milk and agave) in a blender or food processor and puree until you reach your desired consistency. This is where I added a bit of almond milk and agave to create a creamier texture and a bit sweeter taste. Place in the fridge and allow it to get cold – usually takes about an hour – and then enjoy and surprise your friends with your interesting and tasty creation!
