This vegan chocolate avocado pudding is one of my all-time favourite quick and easy desserts. I’ve actually been making chocolate avocado pudding for years after a failed vegan chocolate avocado cake I was attempting one day. The cake recipe didn’t work out but on the plus side I discovered you could mix avocado with chocolate and sweetener to make an amazing, rich, chocolate pudding. And I’ve been in sweet, sweet avocado heaven ever since.
Really though, is there anything better than a perfectly ripe, beautiful avocado? Yep, didn’t think so.
No Avocado Taste
You won’t believe how creamy the avocado makes this and the cocoa, dates and maple syrup are enough to mask any avocado flavour, leaving you with the most wonderful, smooth chocolate pudding. Try topping it with nuts, sliced strawberries or bananas or even drizzling some almond butter over top. Get creative and enjoy!
If you’re a little sceptical of mixing avocado and chocolate, trust me on this one! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/4 cup packed medjool dates, pitted
- 2 heaping tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw honey
- Blend all ingredients until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides is needed.
- Serve immediately.
If you find it’s too thick try slowly adding a little non-dairy milk to adjust the consistency.
