Vegan Chocolate Avocado Pudding

2 Jun

Hello!

Original Recipe

You might be thinking, “Avocado? In pudding? Gross!” But it’s actually REALLY good! I haven’t had pudding in 2 years due to allergies so when I found this recipe, I was hesitant, but excited.

At work we get this magazine by Garden of Life called Extraordinary Health. They always have awesome, raw recipes. This recipe can be found in Volume 14 on page 11. However, I have made alterations but I’ll post the original if you want to keep it that way – but mine is better :)The original called for agave nectar but I was reaching for 0g of sugar so I used stevia instead. I’m not much of a stevia fan but this was actually good. I also tried it with xylitol mixed with water (in order to dissolve the granules) and that was delicious too, so do whatever works for you or what you have on hand.

Vegan Chocolate Avocado Pudding – Vegan, Gluten free, Sugar Free

Free of the top 8 allergens – dairy, egg, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish free, wheat/gluten free.

My Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup water (I also added about 2 Tbs of unsweetened rice milk)
  • Stevia to taste (about 1-2 tsp powdered stevia)

OR replace stevia with about 1-2 Tbsp xylitol mixed in the water

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor if available (blender should work too but not as well)
  2. Blend until all avocado chunks are gone and is a creamy texture.
  3. Taste and adjust flavors as necessary.

If you have avocados and are craving chocolate, but don’t want the sugar,

TRY THIS!

Enjoy 🙂
