I love avocado. And I love chocolate. So when I started seeing recipes pop up for chocolate avocado pudding on various websites I was instantly intrigued. Would avocado and chocolate really taste good together? I had to find out.
I whipped together my own version of chocolate avocado pudding and gave it to the Englishman who has declared he doesn’t like avocados (except in guacamole). He ate the entire thing proclaiming how good it was. It was until after he finished that I told him the pudding base was avocado and he was shocked since you can’t taste the avocado at all.
I did a similar experiment on family members a few days ago and the verdict was the same – delicious pudding and no idea there was avocado involved.
Moral of the story is that you need to make this chocolate avocado pudding.
Chocolate Avocado Pudding (serves 4-6)
4 ripe avocados
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons chocolate chips for garnish
Cut your avocados and scoop the insides into a food processor. Add your almond milk and maple syrup and begin to pulse.
Once mixture is creamy, add your cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and vanilla and continue to mix until well blended.
Pour mixture into small serving dishes and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Garnish with chocolate chips and enjoy!
