Recipe: Chocolate Avocado Pudding

After realizing that we really haven't posted many avocado recipes, we thought it was about time!  This dessert is something I recently discovered after an internet search.  I had heard rumors about using avocado in desserts, but I really had no idea how (and if) it would even work!  I came upon a lot of chocolate-avocado pudding and mousse recipes, and decided to bring my favorite ingredients from all of them together.  The result was deliciously surprising and this healthier dessert option (gluten and dairy free, vegan) is one that I will definitely be using in the future!  The whole process contains just 6 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to complete. The recipe is also pretty flexible, so feel free to tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes.  Enjoy!


Serves 4-5

Ingredients:
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • Vanilla (a few drops of organic vanilla extract)
  • Cinnamon (a pinch)
Directions:
1.  Put everything into a food processor
2.  Process until desired texture
3.  Serve chilled or at room temperature
4.  Enjoy!

All the best,
Christine

Oh my! Just tried this and it is amazing! It is so close to "real" chocolate mousse that I'm very happy to have found a substitute I can feel good about. Arriving at my healthy weight goal is looking more and more possible. Thanks!

This is fantastic. You must process to get the smooth texture. I substituted dark agave syrup for the maple syrup, and I loved it. It's like a semi- sweet dark chocolate pudding. I'm going to use it as an alternative " icing " for my healthy cupcakes. Yay!

Great idea! Let us know how it turns out

been making this for a while. another way to make it is with coconut oil and honey heated up in a pan. I'll have to give coconut milk a try now.

Pengobatan Asam Urat Dengan Cara Tradisional
Asam urat adalah salah satu jenis penyakit tidak bisa Anda biarkan begitu saja, apabila Anda sudah terdiagnosis mengalami penyakit asam urat sebaikna untuk segera melakukan pengobatan baik secara medis atau non medis yang lebih alami dibandingkan dengan menggunakan pengobatan dengan mengkonsumsi obat yang terbuat dari bahan kimia karena tidak menutup kemungkinan kandungan kimia tersebut bisa berdampak buruk pada kesehatan tubuh yang mengkonsumsinya.
