This recipe makes a delicious, creamy pudding with hardly any work at all. Just throw the ingredients in the blender, push the button and pour it into serving dishes. It thickens to pudding consistency in the refrigerator. Seriously, it couldn’t be easier.
This pudding recipe makes a creamy chocolate almond flavored dessert with notes of coconut. While the avocado helps create that creamy texture, it makes a low impact in the flavor. I love adding a bit of coconut and sliced almonds on top to add some crunchiness to contrast with the creamy texture. Besides, it makes it pretty and I’m all about that!
This pudding boasts healthy fats of both avocado and coconut. Add to that the antioxidants in the cocoa powder and it’s a real winner! In fact, this pudding is so packed with nutrition, that I eat it for breakfast and don’t feel one bit guilty.
I based this recipe on my 5-Minute Mocha Smoothie recipe. It actually started out as a popsicle recipe. After I filled the popsicle molds, I had some left so I covered it and put it in the refrigerator. While I felt that freezing the avocado mixture did not work as well as I had hoped, the bit that I had put in the refrigerator had a perfect pudding consistency and tasted delicious. Hence, the birth of this recipe.
One of my favorite things about this dessert is that you can make it ahead. I make it in the morning to serve it after dinner. Sometimes, I whip it up the night before I want to eat it for breakfast. Half pint canning jars work great to store this pudding in because they are the perfect size and have their own lids. However, any dessert dishes you might have would work well. Just cover them before refrigerating.
This Chocolate Almond Avocado Pudding makes a great way to start the day or a delicious dessert. It’s so easy to make that there isn’t any reason not to. Enjoy!
