Chocolate Pudding

No milk or sugar here. Just four ingredients too! I know it sounds a little odd and the idea isn’t all that appetizing, but an avocado-based chocolate pudding does not taste like avocado. With the addition of vanilla and honey, the characteristic avocado taste is masked, leaving behind only the inherent creaminess it so wonderfully boasts. And, ladies and gentleman, you can enjoy this dessert on a daily basis without much regard for portion size, if it so pleases you.

Make sure your avocados are ripe. Mine were a little under-ripe, hence the somewhat grainy-looking texture. It’s still delicious, but for presentation’s sake, use ripe avocados!

    yup, avocado might sound weird in a dessert to some, but I have made this before and can attest that it’s absolutely delicious! you even do it exactly like I do with the coconut milk added! I love how avocado adds this creaminess to dips and mousses and such without being overly rich! and it’s a great vegetarian option, or simply just as a healthier dessert we can dig into without feeling sinful. great one (:
