Avocado Chocolate Pudding

This avocado chocolate pudding is so rich and creamy. No will will ever guess that’s it made with avocado instead of dairy.

Sometimes you simply need a little chocolate in your life so today I’m sharing a creamy chocolate pudding. The catch, it’s made with avocado instead of cream so it’s dairy-free and it doesn’t have any of the weird thickeners or stabilizers you often find in store-bought puddings.

It’s amazingly rich tasting but has only six ingredients — all of which are good for you. I think you’re going to love it.

Even if you’re not a huge fan of avocado, I’d recommend trying this recipe because the avocado is barely delectable.

A couple notes:

  • I used Almond Breeze unsweetened coconut flavored almond milk to give the pudding a hint of coconut flavor, but any flavor almond milk will do.
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup was plenty sweet enough for Isaac and I, but  feel free to play around with the amount of sweetness based on your tastes.  You might find that 2-3 Tablespoons is enough for you and your family.
  • You can use whatever type of liquid sweetener you like. If you want to make a low-sugar pudding, you could use stevia instead. I’ve also seen recipes that add banana or dates for sweetness. I think the banana version would be delicious but I know some people aren’t a fan of banana flavor so I didn’t try it. Maybe next time!
  • I used a good quality dark chocolate bar and my microplane zester to create the chocolate shavings you see on top of the pudding in the photos.

Loaded with wholesome ingredients and healthy fats to keep you full and satisfied, this pudding is much better for you than those processed packaged puddin’ packs. It’s also super simple to whip up. Just throw everything in your food processor and boom — dessert is done.

    • I feel ya. I definitely made avocado pudding a few years ago that wasn’t so tasty. I think you have to use a good blender/food processor or else it’s more like chocolate guacamole rather than smooth and creamy like chocolate pudding. I’ve also found that too much cocoa powder makes it much too bitter. Hope you’ll give this recipe a shot.

  1. Now this is my kind of recipe! I totally understand how it goes with recipe testing, my technique so I don’t devour an entire bowl full of pudding is to send it with my husband to work so him and his co-workers can enjoy and provide feedback!

    I love using avocado in desserts, awesome way to get some healthy fats in!

  2. This looks fantastic and like something I would love for dessert. I am the same by the way, I LOVE food, and often taste testing can turn into a full meal haha! Loving your new site design btw 🙂
