Avocado Chocolate Pudding

by Tiffany in Recipes

We don’t often do desserts in our house. On occasion will we follow up dinner with some homemade sorbet but that is the extent of our dessert making here. Perhaps this is why my kids were uber suspicious when they spied pudding chilling in the fridge. They just KNEW that something had to be “off” with it. Was their spinach blended in? Was it sweetened with fruit juice? All good questions and of course they were hip to my tricks. This pudding was mostly comprised of avocado and yet despite that, it tasted very, very good.

Creamy Chocolate Avocado Pudding

4 ripe avocados, peeled
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup raw honey
1 cup milk (regular, coconut, or almond)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until super smooth and creamy. Serve immediately or chill for later. So easy, delicious, and fast! Serves 5-6.

    Ooh, this is almost guilt-free! Call it guilt-lite, I guess. Ha. Avocado is so creamy, I’ll bet it makes an excellent base for pudding. On the weekend list of things to try, thanks!

    FYI, this recipe made me hungry so I’ve included it in Organic Baby Nook’s weekly roundup of the best posts from the last seven days. Cheers!

    This may be a dumb question, but can you just use regular honey, or does it have to be raw?

      Regular will work fine. I just prefer raw. :)

    We live in sunny southern CA so we have avocados in the house all the time – I am definitely going to try this!
