Such a surprisingly simple, yet delicious chocolate avocado pudding! Full of fiber and healthy plant fats because of it’s main ingredient: avocados. My first attempt at chocolate avocado pudding was years ago when I was following a vegetarian diet. However, at the time I was not limiting carbohydrates and natural sugars so I sweetened everything with raw honey or brown rice syrup. After starting on the ketogenic, low carb way of eating, I have adapted this chocolate avocado pudding to fit into my new lifestyle.
Two Minute Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Not only does this chocolate avocado pudding satisfy those chocolate sweet cravings but it is quick to make and full of nutrients. It is also a quick way to use up those avocados that are in danger of over ripening. The chocolate avocado pudding will last about a week in the refrigerator. Sometimes, I will just have a big bowl of my pudding with a few raspberries for lunch. Another fun idea is to layer the chocolate avocado pudding with my pancakes for a decadent breakfast or unique dessert. You can even use this pudding as a topping for my vanilla cupcakes.
