It’s no surprise that I’m in love with avocados. They are one of the most flexible ingredients ever, great on their own, and even better mixed into something. Case in point? This creamy chocolate avocado pudding. I recently got an overhaul of avocados (because, obsession) and wanted to use it in every way I could possibly think of. Pairing it with chocolate just seemed like the best way to have this – I know, I know. If you’ve never tried chocolate and avocado mixed together you may be highly sceptical. Shun that scepticism far, far away my friends. This is possibly one of the world’s best combos, and you’re about to see why.

This isn’t my first chocolate and avocado dance. My Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream remains in my top 5 most popular recipes and the comments, the last being “holy mother this is amazing”, pretty much explain why. You can’t taste the avocado one bit. In fact, all you taste is “why haven’t I made this before” and “why did I tell my family I was making this I want to eat it all for myself”.

Endless visions of happiness essentially.

So what do we have? Avocado, cocoa powder, banana, coconut cream and optional chocolate chips/cacao nibs make up this creamy chocolate avocado pudding. These powerhouse ingredients also make this a really superfood dessert too – win, win. You can be confident knowing that not only does this taste absolutely amazing, creamy, and like your favourite chocolate pudding (am I the only one?!) but that you’re doing great things to your body. Tons of fiber, tons of antioxidants, and tons of healthy fats. Use that when someone asks why you haven’t eaten anything but this for 3 days. Don’t let them judge you!

Ingredients

No Bake Chocolate Avocado Pudding

  • 1 small ripe avocado pitted and peeled (mine was 6.5 ounces unpeeled. 3.18 ounces peeled)
  • 1/3 cup thick white coconut cream (check notes for how to make this from coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 small banana mashed
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa/cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs or chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions

Instructions

No Bake Chocolate Avocado Pudding

  • Add the avocado and coconut cream to a food processor and pulse together until incorporated.
  • Add the maple syrup, banana and cocoa powder and blend until incorporated, about 15-30 seconds.
  • Add the cacao nibs if desired and blend again.
  • Scoop the pudding into one container or 3-4 mini containers. Cover the top with saran wrap, pressing until the pudding so that water doesn't condense in the pudding.
  • Place in your fridge for at least 3 hours to set.
  • Garnish with a mint leaf, coconut whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.
  • Enjoy!
NOTES
HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CREAM
You can buy coconut cream or make it from full fat coconut milk. Place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. The cream will separate from the water. The next day, scoop out the thick coconut cream to equal 1/3 cup.
You can store the rest of the coconut cream in a container and use otherwise, and then pour out the liquid coconut water and drink it or use it in a smoothie.

    How is the “Coconut Whipped Cream” made?

  4. Julija says:

    I made this without the cocoa/cacao powder since I sadly can’t have it due to acid reflux but honestly, it tastes SO GOOD even without it and super simple (I also added some homemade granola on top)!! I will try adding in some carob powder next time to see if it will taste slightly chocolatey. Thank you so much for your recipes – I will be trying out the avocado ice cream next!

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Julija. Wow we’re glad that you enjoyed it! Thank you for trying our recipes!

    I made this tonight after seeing your post on Instagram! The pudding tastes amazing! The texture is perfectly smooth and the cocoa powder makes it super rich and chocolatey. I added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips on top and for sure will be making this again soon. Thanks Jessica!

    I’m here to say that this pudding is freaking AMAZING. I had to force myself to stop eating it, as I finished off almost the entire tub myself…and had no stomach ache! Coming from someone who has major reactive issues to dairy and sugar, this is a gift that I appreciate more than I could ever imagine. THANK YOU, Jessica!

    If I don’t want chocolate pudding, can I just eliminate the cocoa or will it affect the texture?

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t wait to buy your book!

    Delicious! I froze this pudding in popsicle molds to make homemade fudge pops for the summer. My 3 yr old loves them!

    With the first batch the banana flavor was a little strong for me so for the second batch I used a larger avocado and half a banana which definitely helped.

    Thanks, Jessica!

    This is delicious! What a perfect summer treat – thank you!

  9. Nancy Franck says:

    This is absolutely delicious!! I made it without the maple syrup as the coconut cream made it amply sweet. I have a feeling there is unsweetened coconut cream out there which I must find.

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      We’re so happy that you enjoyed this recipe Nancy! Thank you so much for reading and leaving such a nice comment!
