Avocados are probably one of my more favorite foods. They are very mild in flavor but are so silky and full of healthy fats that it feels oh so decadent to eat one. Avocados are about 77% fat and an average sized Hass avocado contains around 11 gm of fiber! That's just about half of what you need in a day all wrapped up in that little green dinosaur looking skin. These fruits (yes it's a fruit) are also very low carb friendly. For my low carb and keto people- an average 100gm serving contains around 2 net carbs, making it an excellent vegan addition to a low carb diet.
This chocolate pudding recipe does NOT taste like anything other than amazing. So don't be judgy and give it a try. This made it past a group of picky older men with the only comment being, "Wish there was more..."
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/4 cup sweetener (honey, maple syrup, agave)
Put everything in a blender or food processor and combine until it looks like pudding. Should only take a minute!
I topped mine with strawberries, graham crackers and cocoa nibs just for fun. Try topping yours with another fruit like bananas or berries. I liked using the crackers and cocoa nibs for the texture. I imagine shredded coconut would also be amazing.
Makes 2 servings.
