Avocado and chocolate. How does that combination make you feel? 

At first I was uncertain– I mean no one wants chocolate guacamole, right? —  but I am a complete convert to LOVING this idea of adding heart healthy ingredient to a dessert. 

Avocados are a heart healthy food. Did you know that they are one of the few fruits that contain healthy monounsaturated fats that have been shown be beneficial in maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol in your body? 

Why not make your family these healthier chocolate puddings for Valentine’s Day? 

What ingredients are in chocolate avocado pudding?

How do you make this healthy avocado chocolate pudding recipe?

  1. Melt the chocolate chips with the almond milk in the microwave.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the Vitamix and blend.
  3. Cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes then serve.

The process of making this healthy chocolate pudding really is that simple. You’ll melt the chocolate chips with the almond milk in the microwave. I experimented with skipping this step and simply adding the chips to the blender, but the texture of the finished pudding is much smoother if you take a minute to use the microwave first.

The creamy texture of this dessert comes from the avocados and is boosted by the almond butter. 

I know, I know. First I asked you to consider avocado and chocolate…and now I am throwing almond butter in the mix too? Stay with me! You honestly don’t taste the avocado in the pudding and the almond butter is a background flavor that pairs beautifully with chocolate.

When you use a high speed blender like a Vitamix, you’ll see that the pudding heats up and has steam coming from it. A quick 20 minutes in the refrigerator will cool the chocolate pudding.

How do I store chocolate avocado pudding?

You’ll want to store this pudding covered in plastic wrap in the refrigerator. Gently push the plastic wrap right up against the pudding to let as little air as possible near the dessert.

This version of pudding is best the day you make it– eating it within the hour is ideal– but you will still enjoy it a day later too. The avocado taste becomes a bit more pronounced after a day, and you’ll need to give the pudding a quick stir before serving. 

Can I make a healthy chocolate pudding pie?

Sure! Using this pudding recipe for a pie is a great idea! Here are recipe instructions you can follow along to create an impressive pudding pie with this avocado pudding.
