I stumbled upon this recipe in a few different places on the internet and decided to it since it sounded so interesting. Let’s dive into this vegan recipe…Avocados? Check. Love them. Tasty and healthy. In California, avocados are a constant and I am grateful for that. Chocolate? Double check and double bonus for the tasty and healthy part. Pudding? Love to eat it, but don’t have it a lot so this is a wonderfully easy recipe to whip up with simple ingredients I have at home.
Avocado Chocolate Pudding
For 2 large servings you will need:
- 1 large ripe avocado
- 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
- 1-1/2 cups almond milk (or other substitute)
- 1 to 2 teaspoons honey (or agave nectar)
To create your pudding, put all the ingredients in a blender and blend. Adjust the milk and sweetener to your desired consistency and flavor. Voila! Easy-peasy.
This recipe doesn’t have any milk or cream so it won’t mess with lactose intolerant people. How does it taste you ask? Not the best. I can eat regular pudding and this is a bad substitute. It didn’t have the right consistency. It was not thick like pudding, even though I was careful not to add too much milk. Maybe we needed to add tofu to get this to be creamier and thicker, but it also didn’t have the right flavor. I was using a very good cocoa powder by E. Guittard so the chocolate was not the problem. I’d love to find a good recipe so I’ll keep looking for another one. Let me know if you have come across one that you like to eat. In the meantime, buy some chocolate from Drexelius Chocolates and enjoy uncommonly good chocolate.
