Chocolate Avocado Pudding

About a year ago, before Baby Boo came into our lives, I used to spend evenings cooking and baking away in the kitchen trying to kill time while my Hubby studied his little heart out for school.

Occasionally I would experiment with different ingredients, and when Hubby got home I would test them out on him. A lot of times he would humor me as I tried to force feed him black bean brownies, but I knew that if he didn’t like it, NO body would.

Then one day I stumbled upon a recipe. A recipe like no other. I wasn’t to fond of this kind of food, and I didn’t really know what to expect, but the ingredients sounded AMAZING. I knew I had to try it. So that day I did just that. I went to the store, got my ingredients, threw it together, tasted it…and fell on the floor.

IT…WAS…INCREDIBLE!

I couldn’t believe something could taste so good.

Later that night my Hubby’s friends were coming over and I KNEW I just HAD to share it with them. They too were a little skeptical since I had already tried to feed them Vegan Cookies the last time they came over, but I knew that if they just tasted ONE bite…they would be in love.

When they walked into our house I told them I had made something, and I wanted them to tell me what they thought. They looked at me a little frightened and said, “what’s in it?”(Oddly I always get that kind of response when I cook something for someone) I told them to just try it, and they so kindly did.

They took one bite…

Then they took another…

Then they looked at me in amazement, and licked their bowls clean.

It was love at first sight.

And to this day, they still talk about it.

So what is this most delicious recipe that I have talked so much of??

Meet Chocolate Pudding

Now I know a lot of you may not like pudding. I would say it isn’t the dessert of “choice” for many, but you are going to really have to trust me on this one.

I feel like I am always saying that.

Anyways. The ingredients may shock you, as they did to me. But it makes this dish all the more enticing and amazing.

For starters,

peanut-butter

peanut butter. You can NEVER go wrong with peanut butter…

in my eyes at least =]

avocado

Avocado??

Shhhh…

  1. I make the same thing. I call it Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse. I dont use PB though. I need to start! 🙂

    How many serving sizes is this recipe? Also I tried this out and it was INCREDIBLE! 🙂 Thank you for this recipe! I will be sure to try out many more of your recipes!

    • Depends on your preference 🙂 haha actually I haven’t figured out the serving size, but it is definitely rich so, they aren’t big portions by any means 🙂

    • I don’t remember the recipe exactly but I think it was some almond milk, cherries, strawberries, chia seeds, and that’s it 🙂 and then I topped it with a banana and granola!

  3. I just tried this pudding and it definitely puts all other pudding to shame! Thanks!

  4. You said tsp of vanilla, I’m assuming that means extract…just making sure you don’t mean a fresh vanilla bean or anything/ 🙂

  5. I made this and thought it was really good! It definitely tastes like a peanut butter/chocolate pudding which didn’t appeal to my husband. He thought the flavor of peanut butter took over, but I love peanuts so it was a hit. It’s incredibly rich and thick and I think it’d be fun to play around with different nut butters. Also, stevia could be a nice alternative sweetening method. Anyhow, thanks for the recipe!

  6. I can’t wait to try this recipe for my PICKY EATER! Question…does this keep in the fridge? I want to make a bigger portion, but I’m scared it will go bad with avacados??? Thank you so much for your website! I am at my wits end trying to get my 13 month old to eat! Especially healthy foods! Your site has given me so many new ideas to try!

    • It definitely stays in the fridge! I would say a couple days, and you might have to stir it up a bit when you take it out. Hope that helps, this is one of my FAVORITE dishes, and my daughter can’t stop licking the spoon when we make it!

    Can u use maple syrup in place of agave necter?

  8. I just made this pudding following your recipe and I am blown away! Best of all I get to scrape off the blender.

  9. So I have a question, does this call for unsweetened cocoa powder or sweetened cocoa powder. Looks delightful by the way!
