Nutrient rich and super simple, this chocolate avocado pudding makes a great snack or dessert.
Today I’m finally sharing that delicious Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe I’ve been teasing you with for the past week. I’ve never been a huge pudding fan myself but hubby likes chocolate pudding and I’ve had it on my list of things to make for a while now. I’ve looked at TONS of recipes and was just never crazy about the ingredients that most of them used.
When I did find a few recipes that I liked the ingredients in, several of them used bananas and nut butter to thicken them. Hubby doesn’t like bananas and I wanted this to be truly chocolatey, not overshadowed by nut butter mixed in.
I decided to use dates as the base. They’re naturally sweet and I like how you can puree them to be totally smooth. I figured I could combine them with avocado for a thick, smooth pudding. I added a little cocoa powder to get the chocolate flavor and some milk to help blend it all together and voila! 4 ingredients and crazy delicious.
Here’s the recipe (inspired by Minimalist Baker):
4 Ingredient Chocolate Pudding
Nutrient rich and super simple, this 4 ingredient chocolate pudding makes a great snack or dessert.
- 1/2 - 2/3 cup chopped, pitted dates
- 1/2 cup smashed avocado
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
- Optional toppings: bananas, nut butter, seeds, etc
- Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and process until smooth.
- Taste and add more dates if not sweet enough or more milk if too thick for your preference.
- Top as desired
When I told hubby what was in this pudding, he said “No f*!@king way!”.
Even Squish can help make this recipe! Take a look:
Since I love peanut butter and banana I chose to add those to mine as toppings. Feel free to add whatever toppings you want or eat it as is.
Keep in mind that while I would consider this a healthy pudding option full of nutrients, it’s still calorie dense….so a small serving is all you need! If you divide one batch into 3 small servings, it’ll probably around 225 calories.
