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.


Avocadoes: prevent breast cancer with its oleic acid content, inhibit the growth of prostate cancer, defend against oral cancer, contain lutein for eye health, lower cholesterol levels due to its beta-sitosterol, contain 23% of the recommended daily value of folate (lowers incidence of heart disease), protect against strokes, helps to better absorb nutrients, are high in glutathione, which prevent aging, cancer and heart disease, and are packed with vitamin E.

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

by Aylin @ Glow Kitchen

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients (2 servings)

  • 2 ripe medium avocados, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash sea salt


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.



Garnish with a mint leaf.


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!
