Introduction: Creamy Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Picture of Creamy Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Two superfoods in one shot! Cocoa and avocado! No, wait... FOUR superfoods! Raw honey and hemp!

Chocolate with avocados sounds like an ugly stepchild, but believe me, once you try it you may never go back to dairy chocolate pudding again. You can't taste the avocado in the recipe, but you do feel the rich creaminess you thought could only come from dairy. If you don't tell your kids there's avocado in it THEY WILL NEVER KNOW.

This recipe is vegetarian, but may or may not be vegan depending upon who you ask. Some vegans eat honey, some don't.

Anyhoo... Ingredients?

2 medium Haas avocados, ripe

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup raw honey

1/3 - 1/2 cup plain hemp milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Step 1: Guess What You're Gonna Do?

You're going to take all of those ingredients and stick them in your food processor and press whichever button purees the whole mess until it turns velvety and creamy. Stop and squeegee down the sides if you see little green bits, then puree again until you see nothing but rich chocolate loveliness.

That's it. You're done. It's best if you chill it for a little while, if you can wait that long.

Please, let me know how you like it, or if there's anything you would change or add. What would you top this with? Whipped cream? Fresh blueberries? Mango? Walnuts?

Enjoy!

looks good. might try it with almond milk.

creativereilly made it! (author)2015-01-20

It's really great! I doubled the recipe. I think I may have put more of the honey than I was suppose to.. it was really sweet. I can't wait to have others try it but not tell them it has avocado in it. Thanks for sharing this!

So did you fool everyone? Did they realize there was avocado? :)

everyone seemed to know it was pudding out of the box. lol! A couple people enjoyed it. Some like the pudding out of the box better. No account for taste there. lol. I'll definitely make it again, if for one else but myself! Thank you again for sharing this recipe!

That's so funny! Thanks for the update :)

I made this, using 2% dairy milk. It was very good, with a lovely creamy texture. I noticed a sort of "green" fruity flavor, but adding vanilla helped with this, and actually complemented the chocolate very nicely. Add a pinch of salt - makes a huge difference. Garnish with a little whipped cream and/or berries for a dessert fit for a dinner party!

I'll try it with a pinch of salt next time. I'm thinking I might try whipped coconut cream, which I haven't yet experimented with.

Ooh, another avocado dessert to surprise people with. I make avocado ice cream, never thought to use it for pudding. Looks awesome!

I had some avocado ice cream in the freezer and a craving for chocolate one night, so I mixed cocoa powder with the ice cream and it turned out like chocolate mousse! It was lovely!

Does this work with, you know, regular normal milk? I'm not a vegetarian and I don't like avocado, but this recipe looks delicious and I'd like to try it!

indeepknit (author)astropapi12015-01-16

I haven't tried it with dairy milk. Not really sure how it would turn out.

astropapi1 (author)indeepknit2015-01-20

I'll give it a try, will report back once I get some pictures. In the name of science, I say!

This looks so good!

indeepknit (author)Edd Black2015-01-20

Thanks! Let me know if you try it!

Made this using raw cream and some banana. We just went off of processed sugar as a family so this was perfect. Tasted great!

indeepknit (author)jjkimball2015-01-17

That sounds amazing! How much banana did you add?

Robibame (author)2015-01-15

I'm gonna' try this.... I got some almond milk. ... bettin' it'll be just as good as the hemp milk.

ashleyjlong (author)Robibame2015-01-16

I'm also hoping it would work with almond or coconut milk. I'm not sure I've seen hemp milk at the stores I go to.

indeepknit (author)ashleyjlong2015-01-16

BTW, both Mother's Market (might be a California thing) and Fresh & Easy carry hemp milk, at least in my area.

indeepknit (author)ashleyjlong2015-01-16

It will work with any kind of non-dairy milk. I prefer hemp because it's the creamiest, but you could use almond, cashew, coconut, etc.

amberrayh (author)2015-01-15

Wow, this recipe looks amazing. I gotta try it!

indeepknit (author)amberrayh2015-01-15

Thank you! It's very chocolatey and smooth. It's a great dessert for Paleos looking for something sweet.
