Decadent Chocolate Pudding…with a surprise ingredient!

 

 

I have been seeing chocolate pudding recipes all over the web lately…

and they have an interesting ingredient…

AVOCADOS!

It took me a while to work up the nerve, but I finally made some.

And it is incredible!

 

I have read several recipes, but decided to put together my own from the ingredients and measurements that suited our tastes.

 

Decadent Chocolate Pudding

2 ripe organic avocados

1/4 cup 100% cocoa powder (unsweetened)

3 Tbsp raw honey

1 Tbsp organic virgin coconut oil

3 Tbs unsweetened organic almond milk

1 tsp vanilla

 

 

 

pudding 1

 

Scoop the avocados into a food processor. You will want one that works well, or you will not get the creamiest consistency.

 

pudding 2

 

 

Add the rest of the ingredients to the processor.

 

 

pudding 3

 

 

Process for 30 seconds. Scrape down your bowl…

 

 

pudding 4

 

 

and process an additional 30 seconds, or whatever amount of time it takes to get the consistency you like. If the pudding is to thick or lumpy, add a little more almond milk or coconut oil.

 

 

pudding 5

 

 

Scoop into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. I noticed that the longer you refrigerate, the better.

 

 

pudding 6

 

 

I am so glad I decided to give this a try. It is delicious, nutritious, and you totally will NOT know the main ingredient is AVOCADO.

 

Go ahead and make some!
