About a year ago I first posted about chocolate avocado pudding. It was a regular in my healthy dessert rotation for a couple of months and then I somehow forgot about it. I decided it was high time to make it again, only this time I took it up a notch and made Chocolate Peanut Butter Avocado Pudding.
Since I have a large jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter from Peanut Butter and Co., I decided to incorporate the dark chocolate PB into the pudding instead of just eating it straight from the jar (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
In addition to the Dark Chocolate Dreams PB, this avocado pudding has unsweetened cocoa powder, Canadian maple syrup, and light coconut milk. A very simple recipe that’s also quite tasty and loaded with healthy fats.
This pudding is the perfect thing to whip up when you are craving something sweet, but not too sweet. You can use regular peanut butter or almond butter in place of the Dark Chocolate Dreams, but I really think the dark chocolate pb takes it up a notch.
And like I said in my other recipe, you cannot taste the avocado! Super pinky promise.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Avocado Pudding (makes 4 servings)
2 small ripe avocados
2 tbsp Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup light coconut milk
Pinch of salt
Cut up your avocado and place in the food processor and begin to pulse. Add your coconut milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder, salt and dark chocolate peanut butter and continue to mix until well blended.
Scoop into small dishes and place in the fridge for a couple of hours so the pudding can firm up. Garnish with chocolate chips if you so choose!
I noticed by adding the peanut butter it gave the pudding a thicker texture than my previous version. If you don’t want your pudding too thick, use just 1 tbsp of pb or use 1 cup of light coconut milk.
