Healthy Raw Chocolate Pudding

By Thepickyeater @pickyeaterblog

There is something so comforting about chocolate pudding.

Whether it brings back memories of childhood, or more recent memories of eating super fancy chocolate “pot de creme” at a classic SF restaurant, chocolate in pudding/mousse form is one of those desserts I can’t say no to.

It’s creamy, luscious, decadent and rich.

You really can’t go wrong.

The husband likes chocolate pudding – and has a bit of nostalgia around Jello Pudding Cups. So when a friend of ours brought “raw chocolate pudding” to poker night and the husband found it “interesting, but too avocado-y” – I had to figure out a way to recreate it at home.

So yes, this recipe does have avocado in it.

I know what you’re thinking: avocado and chocolate don’t go together. But with the addition of a few other ingredients and the use of a blender, the avocado becomes the base for a super thick and creamy pudding that tastes great.

Oh and thanks to the avocado (instead of cream) – this recipe is vegan and gluten free. And thanks to the food processor/blender, it takes less than 10 minutes to make!

Three notes for this recipe:

  • You must serve this super, super chilled – otherwise you will get a hint of avocado when you taste it
  • You can adjust the amount of banana, honey/maple syrup and cocoa powder depending on how chocolatey and sweet you like it. Taste it after the first batch and add more if needed.
  • This recipe was inspired by one from All Recipes and FitSugar. But I found the All Recipes one a bit too avocado-y/banana-y, and the Fit Sugar one is super high in calories and sugar. So here is my modified version which can actually be called a healthy, delicious dessert!
