We make this a lot. In our house we like it better than chocolate pudding!! There’s a lightness to the flavor and mouth feel that is so fresh but still chocolaty and yummy.
I add cream cheese sometimes, or dissolved instant coffee. Personally, I didn’t like the cinnamon. I thought the flavors fought, so I always leave that out.
CHOCOLATE AVOCADO PUDDING (PALEO, VEGAN)
1 medium avocado, ripe
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons honey for Paleo diet OR 2 Tablespoons agave nectar for vegans
6 Tablespoons almond milk
optional: pistachios or other nut for topping
- Cut open the avocado and scoop out the pit. Cut it into large chunks and put in the blender.
- Add the cocoa, honey or agave, and almond milk. Blend, starting on low and then moving to high speed until it is smooth.
- If the avocado is larger, you will need a bit more of each ingredient. If it is too thick, drizzle in a bit more almond milk. Add more cocoa or honey or agave to taste.
- Refrigerate the pudding and serve cold. Top with pistachios or other nuts. Enjoy!
