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!

    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!

    Wish I’d read the comments before making this recipe. I, too, could not find “coconut cream.” I ended up with Goya cream of coconut because I could not find the product. It worked, but I’m pretty sure it’s not what you intended to be used in the recipe. Is coconut cream milk-like? Will have to try again. It might be helpful to give some of the ingredient sources in your recipes.

      Hi! We’re so sorry to hear that you had trouble finding coconut cream. Cream of coconut is sweetened coconut cream. And coconut cream is much thicker than coconut milk. We hope you enjoy when you try again!
