Creamy Avocado Chocolate Pudding





Introduction: 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?

looks good. might try it with almond milk.

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!

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

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!

Thanks! Let me know if you try it!
