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!

Recipe Notes

    1. This recipe is vegan and gluten free. You can easily double or triple this recipe!
    2. HOW TO STORE THIS PUDDING This pudding lasts in your fridge for about 2-3 days based on when your avocado ripened.
    3. How to Make Coconut Whipped Cream for the top click here. I don't recommend skipping this step because it provides a beautiful contrast to the sweet pudding. You can also use it sans any sweetener.

    4. For the very thick cream in the actual pudding, you can buy the very thick cream or put your can in the freezer for a few hours. After a few hours, turn the can upside down, screw the top off and and pour out the liquid on top. Then scoop the solids of the coconut milk out of the jar. You can set the little liquid that's left back in the fridge or drink it.
    5. This is a delicious and rich pudding, so that's why the serving size is set as 1 mini pudding which is about ¼ cup pudding.

    What is coconut cream and where do you buy it, or how do you make it? Thanks.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Michelle,

      You can buy coconut cream at Trader Joes OR you can make it by putting a container of coconut milk in the fridge upside down overnight. It’ll solidify over night and you can scoop it out and use it as coconut cream. There will be some coconut water at the bottom that you can either discard or use in a dish. Hope that helps!
